Pine Needles could be legendary architect Donald Ross's finest hour. He was given some fine land to work with, featuring gentle shifts in elevation, and he made the most of it. John Fought was given the honor of carrying out a thorough refurbishment in the mid 2000s that included new drainage, replacement of the turf, and wholesale restoration of the bunkering and greens; he even went back to old photos taken from the air for guidance. The success of Fought's work was proved immediately during the US Women's Open in 2007. It still takes precision with the irons and all of the tricks of the short game to do well here, and the swift greens call require some fancy putting. The bunkering throughout is quite effective. The 132-yard 3rd is the signature hole, which plays over a pool and marshes to a backslanting green. Golfers can enjoy Pine Needles over and over.

Very good
Another very good and famous Donald Ross's design, which hosted 3 times the U.S. Women’s Open, just minutes from Pinehurst Resort. Although played in March (2013), the greens were very fast ,14", but not as much punishing as Pinehurst N°2. Although a very good course, its ranking in the Top 100 public courses in the USA can be surprising.
