Where2Golf says: 

Pinehurst No.7 Golf Course: Arranged in two out-and-back loops, Pinehurst No.7 is one of the most memorable golf courses in the North Carolina sandhills. In its rugged pine-forested setting, this big-dimension layout is blessed with many significant elevation changes. Rees Jones skilfully utilised these slopes and undulations to create an abundance of dramatic and breathtakingly beautiful golf holes.

No.7's elevated tee boxes let you register the challenges that lie ahead. They are complemented by challengingly elevated greens. Substantive, eye-catching bunkering (both sand and grass) is one of the key defences here. So too are the large and undulating greens with attendant steep run-offs. If your approach play is not precise, skilful bump and run shots will be needed to get you back onto the putting surface and close to the pin.

After an absorbing front-nine, the back-nine just seems to get better and better. The signature par-3 16th features a large hand-shaped waste area known as "Jones's Fingers." The round culminates at the long downhill par-5 18th with the clubhouse providing a memorable backdrop to the hole, while a pond menacingly lurks immediately behind the green.

Reflecting the quality and dimensions of the course, the real estate here is also large and impressive, although it never feels too intrusive as you line up your tee shots to the generally good-width tree-lined fairways. Occasionally water and wetlands come into play, but nothing like as frequently as the impressive bunkering.

Did you know?

The par-4 4th hole on No.7 may have you wondering why the first three of its eight bunkers are found in the vicinity of the tee boxes. Originally part of a long-abandoned employees' course that Donald Ross had designed, Rees Jones accidentally discovered the bunkers while laying out the No.7 course. The bunkers were located near to the old PGA / World Golf Hall of Fame building. The largest bunker had a pine tree growing through the side of it, with the two smaller bunkers situated 100 yards further up. Rees Jones decided to leave them just where they were.
