A New Chapter in the Legacy of the Cradle of American Golf, Pinehurst No. 10

The eagerly awaited golf course designed by Tom Doak, which started construction this January, marks the first new addition to Pinehurst Resort’s golf courses in almost 30 years. This debut is set shortly before Pinehurst hosts the U.S. Open for the fourth instance.

Pinehurst Resort CEO Bob Dedman Jr. commented, “Recognized as the Cradle of American Golf, Pinehurst Resort has witnessed numerous significant championships and iconic moments. We are thrilled to introduce Tom Doak’s exceptional design to our visitors on April 3, a day that will stand out in Pinehurst’s legacy and point towards our promising future.”

Pinehurst No. 10 sets itself apart from other courses at the resort.

Though No. 10 is the resort’s inaugural course in nearly 30 years, it encapsulates centuries of golf heritage. Doak’s latest creation harmoniously incorporates North Carolina Sandhills’ intrinsic features such as native wiregrass, vast sandscapes, lofty longleaf pines, and undulating terrains. Unique to the course is its utilization of dunes formed by previous mining activities around the 1900s. This results in a stunning course offering over 75 feet of elevation variation, promising a unique golf experience.

Tom Doak noted, “No. 10 initiates gently, but ventures into historic quarry zones, creating a wild twist. Ascending the hill reveals breathtaking panoramas. Every hole poses its challenges, making the course more dramatic than I first envisioned.”

To be among the pioneers playing on No. 10, golf enthusiasts can book their slots at 1-800-ITS-GOLF. Details about golf packages are available on Pinehurst.com.

Tom Pashley, President of Pinehurst Resort, added, “We eagerly await everyone’s reactions to Tom Doak’s exquisite rendition of Pinehurst golf. From No. 10’s conception to its final design, Doak and his team have surpassed our highest hopes.”
