Pinehurst No.10 Golf Course

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1984

Pinehurst No.10 Golf Course: laid out by Tom Doak on the site of the former Pit Golf Links, No.10 is the latest course to join the Pinehurst Resort stable, and the first new course in the Pinehurst area for nearly 30 years.

Doak’s design features a pleasantly rolling landscape, which embraces 75 feet of elevation change within the course. Also integral, are the former mine workings, which Cabell Robinson's former Pit Links design exploited to such dramatic effect.

Undulating rolling fairways lined with Carolina pines, combine with rustic bunkering and sloping greens to give the No.10 layout a distinct resemblance to Pinehurst's No.2 and No.4 layouts. Rugged dunes and native grasses also play their full part on what will no doubt become another revered Doak design. Sandhill golf aficianados will be in raptures.

Did you know?

In the early 1920s the Aberdeen Sand Company began work on a 230-acre site near Pinehurst, excavating sand for projects including the Blue Ridge Parkway. Over the years, with nature's helping hand, a unique landscape was created.

In 1984 Dan Maples discovered this domain and set to work sculpting it into one of Pinehurst's most memorable golf courses ... The Pit Golf Links. Following its closure in 2010, The Pit was bought by the Pinehurst Resort, and the course completely redesigned by Tom Doak. The course reopened in 2024, as Pinehurst Resort's No.10 course.
