Updates on the new holes of Pinehurst No. 3

A few weeks ago, Pinehurst Resort and Country Club released new renderings and answered a few questions about the changes to Pinehurst Nos. 3 and 5.

That post caught the attention of The Golf Channel. While the work on Nos. 3 and 5 is not yet fully complete, the courses are on schedule to resume play with new routings in the early spring.

As spring nears, some of the changes to Pinehurst No. 3 are becoming more prevalent. Below are photos of the new 3rd hole on No. 3, the new par-3 4th hole, and the new par-3 10th hole.
