A Look At Pinehurst’s Tenth Course

A Look At Pinehurst’s Tenth Course

A couple of years ago, I had the good fortune to be able to spend a week at Pinehurst, playing Pinehurst No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 5 and No. 8.

It was as good a golf experience as I have ever had and I am eager to go back.

Pinehurst now is adding a tenth note to its siren song of golf. Designed by Tom Doak (with whom, incidentally, I have played a round), Pinehurst No. 10 is slated to open in late spring of 2024.

In the meantime, we can all drool over this drone footage of the Pinehurst No. 10 in progress.

Doak is obviously working some of his “sand magic,” much as he has on courses like Pacific Dunes, Old MacDonald and The Loop at Michigan’s Forest Dunes.

Among the Pinehurst courses I have played, Pinehurst No. 4 is the one I’d most like to replay (read my Pinehurst No. 4 review). With all due respect to the legendary Pinehurst No. 2, I think No. 4 could be more fun for mid handicappers (Read GolfBlogger’s Pinehurst No. 2 review).

Pinehurst No. 3 is, I think, the resort’s hidden gem. It is short, but mighty. The Donald Ross design tips out at just 5, 115 yards, but strategic considerations and greens complexes make it quite challenging. I would happily play this one again. (read GolfBlogger’s Pinehurst No. 3 review).

PInehurst No. 8, which I very much enjoyed on a late afternoon/early evening round has recently undergone a facelift, with new grass, bunkers and tree management. It was worthy of a play before; I would be curious to see the ways in which it was improved (read GolfBlogger’s Pinehurst No. 8 review).

Finally, Pinehust No. 5 — an Ellis Mapes design — strikes me as a pleasant course to warm up on after arrival, or as the second round in a long day (read GolfBlogger’s Pinehurst No. 5 review).

One of these years, I’ll get back to Pinehurst and finish the other five.
