PINE NEEDLES GOLF COURSE

Pine Needles’ award-winning golf course is the first in the nation to be awarded four U.S. Women’s Open Championships. Named the #4 golf course in the state by Golfweek, the course was designed by the legendary Donald Ross in 1927, and meticulously restored by Kyle Franz in 2017. Today, the course spans more than 7,000 yards with each rolling hill and fairway bunker reimagined to reflect the challenges Ross envisioned nearly a century ago.

COURSE HOLE-BY-HOLE

Hole 1 PAR 5 | HDCP 11 This is a comfortable opening hole. A par 5, it is reachable in two
for the big hitters. Lay up carefully to avoid the two big bunkers in
the second landing zone. A small, fast green makes for a challenging
approach.
Regular 462 Executive 462 Forward 383 Medal 504 Ross 482 Yardage HOLE 1
Hole 2 PAR 4 | HDCP 5 A long and difficult par 4. A good drive to the crest of the hill –
missing the sandy knots and bunkers – leaves long iron to the green.
Play to the front of this green as it slopes away from front to back.
Par is an excellent score here.
Regular 419 Executive 380 Forward 373 Medal 481 Ross 438 Yardage HOLE 2
Hole 3 PAR 3 | HDCP 17 Our signature hole was once selected by GOLF Magazine as one of
Donald Ross’ Top 18 holes as well as one of their Top 500 holes around
the world. A short par 3 over a small lake to a well-bunkered green.
It is a spectacular sight. A short iron for most players.
Regular 126 Executive 126 Forward 110 Medal 145 Ross 135 Yardage HOLE 3
Hole 4 PAR 4 | HDCP 9 An uphill par 4 where a drive should favor the left side of the fairway.
Deceptive uphill second shot. Hit extra club to avoid bunkers short
and to the right. This green has a sinister false front.
Regular 342 Executive 333 Forward 266 Medal 403 Ross 382 Yardage HOLE 4
Hole 5 PAR 3 | HDCP 7 Long, uphill par 3 to one of our most severely undulating green
complexes. Long iron or fairway wood from back tees. You’ll
be happy with a par here.
Regular 171 Executive 116 Forward 116 Medal 218 Ross 181 Yardage HOLE 5
Hole 6 PAR 4 | HDCP 1 Favor the left side of the fairway to avoid the fall off and sandy mounds.
From the top of the hill, a nice mid iron approach downhill to a well-
bunkered green. Classic Donald Ross par 4 hole.
Regular 378 Executive 314 Forward 308 Medal 459 Ross 411 Yardage HOLE 6
Hole 7 PAR 4 | HDCP 3 A slight dogleg to the left par 4. A good drive to the top of the hill still
leaves you with a mid- to long- iron approach. Play to center of green
as a ball landing on the false front will roll back off.
Regular 348 Executive 348 Forward 313 Medal 455 Ross 407 Yardage HOLE 7
Hole 8 PAR 4 | HDCP 15 A short par 4 where long hitters may want to use a fairway wood off the
tee. Challenging approach to a well-bunkered green. Good birdie hole.
Regular 324 Executive 318 Forward 284 Medal 360 Ross 353 Yardage HOLE 8
Hole 9 PAR 4 | HDCP 13 Long hitters may lay back off the tee to avoid the bunkers and sandy
knots. Mid- to short- iron approach makes for a good birdie opportunity.
An approach shot to the middle of the green avoids the “Devil’s Den” on
the right.
Regular 351 Executive 351 Forward 259 Medal 385 Ross 371 Yardage HOLE 9
Hole 10 PAR 5 | HDCP 4 This tee has one of the most iconic views in the Pinehurst area. A drive to
the right center of the fairway will avoid deep fairway bunker on the left.
Uphill second and third shots on this par 5 require one extra club on
approach. Flat green will yield a good birdie opportunity.
Regular 460 Executive 450 Forward 348 Medal 525 Ross 482 Yardage HOLE 10
Hole 11 PAR 4 | HDCP 12 A drive to the top of the hill – and avoiding the fairway bunker – leaves a
mid- to short- iron onto the green. Additional club on the approach takes
the false front out of play.
Regular 347 Executive 311 Forward 284 Medal 414 Ross 369 Yardage HOLE 11
Hole 12 PAR 4 | HDCP 14 This is the quintessential Pine Needles tee shot - playing to the top of
the hill, avoiding bunkers. Mid- to short- iron second shot to right side
of green works well on this par 4.
Regular 312 Executive 306 Forward 253 Medal 459 Ross 350 Yardage HOLE 12
Hole 13 PAR 3 | HDCP 16 This is an exciting downhill par 3. Its undulating green complex is
protected on the right by a meandering bunker. Par is always a good score.
Regular 162 Executive 131 Forward 131 Medal 208 Ross 181 Yardage HOLE 13
Hole 14 PAR 4 | HDCP 2 This is a classic Donald Ross risk/reward tee shot. A conservative drive
down the left leaves a longer approach. An aggressive drive over the
bunkers leaves a shorter second shot. A well-bunkered green with a small
entrance makes this a challenge.
Regular 387 Executive 350 Forward 342 Medal 454 Ross 402 Yardage HOLE 14
Hole 15 PAR 5 | HDCP 6 This is a long and difficult par 5. The sloping fairway requires a drive
down the right side. Precisely played second and third shots will dodge
a hazardous nest of bunkers.
Regular 469 Executive 462 Forward 401 Medal 530 Ross 485 Yardage HOLE 15
Hole 16 PAR 3 | HDCP 18 A solid and scenic par 3. This hole is well-bunkered with a small green
that requires an accurate mid-iron approach.
Regular 161 Executive 130 Forward 130 Medal 180 Ross 169 Yardage HOLE 16
Hole 17 PAR 4 | HDCP 8 Long hitters may select a 3-wood from the tee on this severe dogleg
left par 4. Drive over the sprawling fairway bunker on the left will leave
you with long iron approach. This is a difficult par.
Regular 414 Executive 382 Forward 334 Medal 461 Ross 432 Yardage HOLE 17
Hole 18 PAR 4 | HDCP 10 Great finishing hole with a majestic view. It requires a good drive and
precise approach. The downhill second shot is protected by deep bunkers
and falloffs. Play to the middle of this green.
Regular 397 Executive 360 Forward 301 Medal 421 Ross 406 Yardage HOLE 18

Hole 1 PAR 5 | HDCP 11 This is a comfortable opening hole. A par 5, it is reachable
