Two weeks ago, we called them “Puttable.”

In eight days, we’ll call them, “Open.”

Pinehurst No. 2’s famed greens are nearing completion of their bermudagrass conversion. No. 2 will be reopened for members on Sept. 3, and open again for guests a day later, on Sept. 4.

It’s been an amazing transition to watch over the course of the last couple of months, and we will continue to provide updates on the greens next week as players return to Donald Ross’ masterpiece just a couple of months after the historic U.S. Opens.

They sure have come a long way.
