Detailed description

Pinehurst Resort & Country Club is a premier golf facility that boasts nine (9) 18-hole championship courses located in Pinehurst, North Carolina. The courses are Numbered No.1 - No.9.

Pinhurst No.5 was designed by Ellis Maples. It's no wonder Ellis Maples would design a Pinehurst golf course - his father was Donald Ross' right hand for over 40 years.

Opened in 1961, No. 5 holds true to a key Ross feature - Mother Nature as the best guide in golf architecture. The course has more water hazards to negotiate than any other course at Pinehurst. It is also one of the prettiest - especially the par-three 15th, known as the Cathedral Hole. What you'll see is a lot of variety in the layout - uphill and downhill, left-to-right and right-to-left, long and short par fours. Overall, it is a very playable, enjoyable 18 holes that will not disappoint.
