A Short Course With A Long History

At just 5,155 yards, No 3 is the shortest course at Pinehurst, but don’t let that modest distance fool you. The course, originally designed in 1910, was recently renovated to return many of Donald Ross’s original flourishes and characteristics. Miniscule, elevated greens that average just 4,500 sq. ft. each demand precision while challenging bunker placements add to the adventure as you try to best this par-68 course.
