Name Pinehurst Resort’s new putting course — and win!

Pinehurst Resort’s new putting course is currently under construction and set to open in September. But it needs a name. And that’s where you come in.

While the restoration of famed Pinehurst No. 2 continues to grab the headlines as the clock counts down to the historic back-to-back U.S. Opens in 2014, everyone who has played at Pinehurst knows the legendary locale’s true identity stems from Donald Ross’ iconic turtleback greens.

At times those greens can be harrowing, but Pinehurst Resort has forged a new way to make them fun. Near the first tee to Pinehurst No. 4, a new putting course is currently under construction. Due to open in September, the extreme putting course will feature nine holes of mind-bending journeys designed to entertain everyone in the family, from the golfing beginner to the scratch player and everyone in between.

While the course will have hills, swales, bumps and valleys, what it doesn’t have yet is a name.

And that’s where you come in.

Pinehurst Resort is taking suggestions for the name of its newest feature. The best names will be selected and added to a poll that will appear on Facebook. If your suggestion wins, you will receive a $100 gift card from Pinehurst Resort.

Get those nominations in now by emailing them to alex.podlogar@pinehurst.com. The deadline is July 23.
