“Nothing short of spectacular” – Golf Digest ranks Pinehurst No. 2

No.2_hole7_henderson2013

Golf Digest unveiled its 2017-18 golf course rankings, placing Pinehurst No. 2 on the list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.

We’re particularly pleased with several of the panelists’ comments about No. 2:

“A true thinking-man’s course. Donald Ross demands shot-creation. Off the tee, there are great lines for shot visualization but it can also trick you if not careful or exact.”

“Though I had seen the restoration on television, the actual experience of playing the course and seeing the changes up-close was better than expected. There is tremendous atmosphere and history surrounding Pinehurst, which makes it feel like an incredibly special place to play a round of golf.”

“The green complexes at #2 should be studied… I love that once you make it on the green, there are a lot of putts to be made, but hitting the green in regulation is a challenge, due to the upside down dish greens.”

“Nothing short of spectacular. The greens are even more terrifying now, as they are surrounded by more short grass and sand. The waste areas and sandy scrub are just awesome. The course played rock hard and fast, which made the golf course much more interesting as it was possible to run up approach and recovery shots. A great, great golf course.”

“The course is very pleasing to the eye with hardpan and wire grass lining the fairways against the backdrop of the tall pines.”
