Pinehurst No. 2
From the PGA Championship in 1936 and the Ryder Cup in 1951 to the U.S. Open Championship in 1999, 2005 and now 2014, Pinehurst No. 2 has had the privilege of hosting some of golf’s most prestigious events. By hosting the U.S. Women’s Open Championship in 2014, Pinehurst No. 2 will become the only course to ever host the U.S. Open, U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur and U.S. Women’s Amateur Championships. With a legacy of championship golf dating back over 100 years, it’s no wonder that golfers around the world place Pinehurst No. 2 at the top of their must-play lists.
Donald Ross, the father of golf course architecture, designed Pinehurst No. 2 by blending the links course style of his homeland in Scotland with the unique topography of the North Carolina Sandhills. The resulting fusion produced what would become Ross’ signature design elements. Turtleback greens that require pinpoint accuracy to avoid runoff into treacherous wiregrass rough. Narrow, undulating fairways where level lies are as rare as birdies. At 7,485 yards in length, Pinehurst No. 2’s challenging layout is matched only by its stunning beauty.
