Golf Channel to broadcast LIVE from The Cradle on Wednesday

We are excited to announce that the Golf Channel’s popular show Morning Drive will broadcast live from The Cradle at Pinehurst on Wednesday. From 7-9 a.m., Morning Drive will provide live look-ins at a round played by the Golf Channel’s Matt Ginella, John Cook and Alexandra O’Laughlin, who will be joined by Cradle designer Gil Hanse.

The Golf Channel will feature bonus coverage from Pinehurst on its social media platforms as well.

Nearly 120 years after golf arrived here, we present The Cradle, a nine-hole short course that even the newest to the game can enjoy. The Golf Channel already calls The Cradle, “the most fun 10 acres in all of golf.” Mere steps from the Resort Clubhouse, it is the same area where, in 1898, Dr. Leroy Culver carved our first nine holes out of the sand. Over the next century, Pinehurst came to be referred to as the Cradle of American Golf.

Greens fees for The Cradle are $50 this fall and replay rounds are free. Rates will vary seasonally. Guests are welcome to play the course more than one time in a day.

Kids 17 and under play free when accompanied by a paying adult, and resort guests may book tee times in advance. Public tee times are available 24 hours in advance. Replays will be booked at the conclusion of each round.
