Even Pinehurst, on occasion, has to wait out a frost delay.
And on the first day of the 2012 Donald Ross Junior Championship on Dec. 28, players wanting to roll a few putts on Pinehurst’s famed practice green had to wait for the sun to rise and the dew to disperse. But once it did, more than 250 junior golfers crowded the Pinehurst Short-Game Complex to finish warming up for the impending shotgun start.
Pinehurst Resort’s state-of-the-art Short-Game Practice Complex began construction in August. Now open, the complex allows golfers to work on every level of the short game, from pitching to bunker play to chipping and putting, not to mention practice from the sandy waste areas so similar to the restored Pinehurst No. 2.
