Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (No. 4)

What to Expect:  One of eight tracks at the historic Pinehurst Resort, #4 was originally a 1919 Donald Ross design that Tom Fazio redid in 2000. In typical Fazio fashion, the course is solid from start to finish. The opening hole features at least a dozen pot bunkers to contend with and sets the tone and style for the track. Bunkers and elevation changes are the major challenge of the track with a large pond on the back nine being the only water feature on the course. The conditioning is excellent, especially considering the number of rounds played at the resort. Much of the original routing through the pine trees was preserved but Fazio’s style is certainly evident in the feel of course. Caddies are available and add to the mystique of the round at the course that is often considered the best of all the tracks at Pinehurst after #2. Signature Hole:  4th - 197 Yard Par 3 - Across the sand hills of North Carolina there is little need to impose water hazards, but Fazio utilizes an attractive water feature to front the 4th green and create a postcard look for the 4th course at Pinehurst. The ground along the sides and back of the green are raised, thus creating a bowl effect around the greenside bunkers. It’s a highly memorable hole that combines an elevated tee and pond to create an exciting tee shot.     Individual Hole Analysis Best Par 3:  14th - 229 Yards -… More >
