Recently returned from Pinehurst where we played #2 (twice),#4Y ) ***twice) and #8. It was very interesting playing #2 with the course well along in setup for the US Open. Strolling the fairways with bleachers and the corp tents up was very cool. Even had spectators in them a few holes- construction workers, LOL.
For those of you that have been there prior to the redo and not since you will have a real surprise when you see the course. No real rough fairway runs right into waste areas. look is very different. and with the emphasis on natural look and less sprinkler heads it may even have a brown look.
when there we played 2 groups in front of Hunter Mahan one day. and about 3 groups behind Jonas Blixt the other day. They played the US Open tees which are a bit long for me.
I am now looking forward to watching the Open in June.
