Now we offer you a look at the maturation of the course, which is playing firm and fast just a few months after ground was broken and the design of Coore and Crenshaw’s Toby Cobb and Dave Axland came brilliantly to life.
Kudos to the incredible staff at Pinehurst. It truly is amazing how quickly Thistle Dhu came together.
Pinehurst’s Maniac Hill practice range was full of golfers on Monday, enjoying their warmup in cool seasonal temperatures before they embarked on a memorable round at one of Pinehurst’s famed courses.
But in the middle of the range stood a man possessing dark sunglasses, striking white hair and a soft, soothing voice. In front of Joe McAuley were two of his grandsons, McAuley, 6, and Porter, 4.
And the three of of them were having the time of their lives.
Especially Grandpa, who gave perhaps the best piece of advice for everyone who introduces the game to kids. Check out the video’s final frame for that sage wisdom. We could all learn a thing or two from Joe and his grandsons.

On Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, the Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance held its Iron Mike Rally Pre-Run, an event designed to work out the logistics of the 36-mile Iron Mike Rally to Fort Bragg the Concours will run in May 2013. Among the classics on display were a 1965 AC Cobra, a vintage 1937 Lincoln, a 1968 Ferrari 330 GTC, a 1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk, a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air and a cayenne-red custom 1962 Corvette convertible.
The Iron Mike Rally is named after the iconic “Iron Mike” statue, located near Fort Bragg headquarters, that represents all paratroopers past, present and future. Fort Bragg is home of the United States Army 82nd Airborne and Special Operations Forces and is one of the largest military complexes in the world, with approximately 57,000 military personnel, 11,000 civilian employees and 23,000 family members on site.
As part of the Pinehurst Concours D’Elegance Iron Mike Rally pre-run on Tuesday, the media group and car owners were treated to an incredible day touring Fort Bragg, including stops at Range 37 and visiting with Special Forces soldiers. Among the events, guests enjoyed a moving performance by the 82nd Airborne All-American Chorus. Check the video for a sample of the emotional and uplifting show.
