Pinehurst Breaks Ground On New Short Course

Gil Hanse explains the concept (embed below) of what hopefully joins the list of influential short courses inspiring more to be built.

Given the location of this one in front of the Pinehurst clubhouse, it's sure to be popular when completed.

Any word on cost to play and will lt be open to resort guests and members only? Thistle Dhu is free and open to public.

Can't help but think this will be for "all golfers who can afford the green fee." PINO.

I live here in Pinehurst area; my strong guess would be that, like all other Pinehurst resort courses, if you can afford it, you can play it; though I would expect the short course to be more 'affordable' and trying to capture the 'less-typical' golfer who doesn't want the outlay of $$$$ and hours required to play the more traditional courses. However, starting out, it may have its popularity more with resort guests as Moore County, where Pinehurst is located, has about 40 courses. It will be interesting to see if the short course finds its own 'special' slot.

short courses are the future
Short course, for sure. 9 holes. Yardages from 63 to 117.

That was Hanse driving the dozer in his video, right?
