SOUTHERN PINES GOLF CLUB

Located in the center of the Village of Southern Pines, this 6,500-yard vintage course has drawn locals, professionals and tourists alike since 1906. Renowned as an authentic American gem, it’s the third original course Donald Ross ever designed — after the front nine of Pinehurst #2 and the 18-hole Winchester Country Club course in 1901. Ross completed the back nine of Pinehurst No. 2 in 1907.

Yardage

COURSE HOLE-BY-HOLE

Hole 1 PAR 4 | 360 YARDS This inviting opening hole tumbles downhill with everything
laid out for the golfer to see. Rising in the back right third, the
green offers tough but interesting hole locations.
HOLE 1
Hole 2 PAR 5 | 495 YARDS A big drive over the crest of the hill allows you to reach the green
in two. But with an elevated green atop the far hill, hitting your
ball from a downslope is tricky and likely to end up in one of two
deep bunkers on each side of the most heavily contoured green
on the course.
HOLE 2
Hole 3 PAR 3 | 195 YARDS The elevated tee on this respected hole reveals an expansive green
with the most pronounced back to front tilt on the golf course.
The challenge is to strategically execute a shot that stays below the
day’s hole location.
HOLE 3
Hole 4 PAR 4/5 | 385 YARDS This hole is deceptively difficult as you are likely to hit into the
side of hills thus killing any significant forward bounce and you
may face an overtly uphill approach shot.
HOLE 4
Hole 5 PAR 5 | 535 YARDS The fairway abruptly falls thirty feet downhill in the 245 yard range
from the tee, just where the hole bends slightly to the left. You’ll strive
to hit a draw so your tee ball will get a kick forward off the downslope
and reach the green in two.
HOLE 5
Hole 6 PAR 4/5 | 425 YARDS At 425 yards, this hole is the longest two shotter on the course.
However, if you get near the green in two, you may not be able
to get down in two. The challenge of this hole, following the easier
fifth hole is great examples of the classic give and take Ross provides
in his designs.
HOLE 6
Hole 7 PAR 3 | 165 YARDS Considered by many the best par-3 in the area, this hole plays over
the rim of a sandy bowl to an angled green on the far side. A sunken
pit challenges those without a solid strike.
HOLE 7
Hole 8 PAR 4 | 375 YARDS With peril lurking on either side of the fairway, this hole demands
that you find the fairway. Routed along the spine of a hill, a drive
that goes right kicks sharply toward a lake while a drive that misses
left kicks into the pine trees with low lying brush.
HOLE 8
Hole 9 PAR 3 | 180 YARDS The ninth holes on most modern courses are forced to return
to the clubhouse. Ross was free to find the routing that yielded
the finest holes. So this par-3 is more than 2,000 yards away.
HOLE 9
Hole 10 PAR 4 | 335 YARDS This hole features wonderful sidehill architecture as a mound crosses
the fairway at the 220 yard mark. If you can hit your tee ball near its
broad crest, you’ll have a more level stance into the green. The left to
right pitch of the ground encourages long tee balls to end up in the
right rough or on a bed of pine needles.
HOLE 10
Hole 11 PAR 4 | 320 YARDS Prudence wins the day on this challenging hole. You’ll be tempted
to use the driver rather than your fairway wood to reach the
not-so-distant green. However, you’re likely to land in inadvisable
territory, earning a double bogey instead of a birdie.
HOLE 11
Hole 12 PAR 4/5 | 410 YARDS This rare straightforward hole offers a more familiar scenario
than the many with distinctive terrain. It plays longish with a
moderately uphill approach.
HOLE 12
Hole 13 PAR 4 | 400 YARDS From this high point in the terrain, Ross pointed this hole in the
opposite direction of the 12th, providing continuous variety.
The constantly shifting variables on this course are an important
part of the overall experience.
HOLE 13
Hole 14 PAR 3 | 170 YARDS Played from the top of one hillock to the top of another, this is a
picture-perfect hole. Like the other par 3s, it requires a crisp iron
game. The natural green intimidates with a ten-foot-deep bunker
cut into the front right slope.
HOLE 14
Hole 15 PAR 5 | 425 YARDS Ross’s original tee remains 20 paces behind the fourteenth green.
It’s a slight dogleg to the right with the uphill second shot requiring
a long iron or utility wood. A longish approach shot provides interest
and challenge. And perfectly complements the next hole.
HOLE 15
Hole 16 PAR 4 | 312 YARDS This hole features a high-point to high-point with a sharp drop
in between. Long hitters will be tempted to drive the green, but
the sensible player will card the better score.
HOLE 16
Hole 17 PAR 4 | 410 YARDS With a right to eft fairway slope, this straight hole encourages
the tee ball to find the left side of the fairway. Yet a serpentine
bunker down the left side of the green encourages you to seek
the right side of the fairway. Hit a fade off the tee to gain the
preferred angle into the green.
HOLE 17
Hole 18 PAR 4 | 340 YARDS A knoll 240 yards from the tee in the middle of the fairway often
forces an awkward stance to the elevated green. And if you stick
your wedge into the ground, your uphill approach can come up
woefully short, encouraging bogeys rather than birdies. An apt
finishing hole seldom built today.
