Donald Ross’s Protégé Takes Pinehurst By Storm

In 1961, Ellis Maples, who studied course design at the side of Donald Ross, adopted his mentor’s mentality of finding the course that lies in the landscape as it already exists. The result was a spectacular course we now call No. 5. Typified by the par-3 14th, known as “Cathedral Hole,” this picturesque course is among the most beautiful at Pinehurst. The signature hole’s green is fronted by a pond and encircled by a stand of pines resembling a pipe organ, leading to its godly nickname.
