Just a few weeks ago we escaped captivity and ventured into the Sandhills region of North Carolina to take an epic golf trip with some of our closest friends. While there was some uncertainty about the safety surrounding travel and staying at a place not called home, our group was blown away by the measures that were taken at each stop along the way to keep everyone safe.
Check out a recap of our trip to sweet caroline-a and where we ranked the courses we played!
Keep in mind we’re splitting hairs here (or in this case pine needles):
Pinehurst #2 - Well deserving of hosting several major championships. Coore & Crenshaw did an amazing job of revitalizing the original design of Donald Ross. Many short-game struggles were witnessed! Pinehurst gives you all of the feels with its rich history.
Dormie Club (private) - Natural, stunning, and strategic! Amazing grouping of Par 3’s. The only original design by Coore & Crenshaw in North Carolina. A layout we would enjoy playing from sunrise to sunset.
Forest Creek, South Course (private) - Lived up to the high praise in the Pinehurst area. Opened in 1996 and designed by Tom Fazio which he patterned after Augusta National. Need we say more?
Pinehurst #4 - Gil Hanse renovated #4 not too long ago and not surprisingly did an amazing job. It’s back where it belongs, a great pairing with #2 and a must-play.
Pine Needles - Great restoration performed in 2018. Amazing back nine and finishing stretch. Another Donald Ross gem that tests your approach shot and around the greens.
