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.

It is a short course good for older golfers and women. The course is surrounded by residences and not as scenic as other course in NC. Pinehurst is a great golf vacation area but pricey. It has great tradition that overshadows the mediocrity of the the courses. There are more scenic courses in other parts of the state that are just as well kept for half the money. Every golfer should have the Pinehurst experience at least once. It was my second and that was enough.
