A few weeks ago, Pinehurst Resort and Country Club released new renderings and answered a few questions about the changes to Pinehurst Nos. 3 and 5.
That post caught the attention of The Golf Channel. While the work on Nos. 3 and 5 is not yet fully complete, the courses are on schedule to resume play with new routings in the early spring.
As spring nears, some of the changes to Pinehurst No. 3 are becoming more prevalent. Below are photos of the new 3rd hole on No. 3, the new par-3 4th hole, and the new par-3 10th hole.

Later in spring, Gil Hanse will begin work on the Pinehurst short course, which will be in a wonderful setting:
Good spot for a short course, don’t you think? pic.twitter.com/HIZZCkGbI3
