Pinehurst No.6 Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1979

Pinehurst No.6 Golf Course: Although the revered No.2 course invariably commands most of the headlines, the No.6 course is not to be overlooked when visiting Pinehurst. Here in the heart of the North Carolina Sandhills, Tom Fazio took two bites at designing this much admired layout. The original design was a collaborative effort with his uncle, George Fazio. In 2005 Tom returned to add new bunkers, soften some angles and create faster greens. The addition of native wiregrass throughout the course further strengthened its distinctive Pinehurst feel.

The two out-and-back, nine-hole loops of No.6 contain many fabulous golf holes. Lined with pine trees and sandy waste areas, some holes feature spectacular elevation changes. Others are threatened by small lakes and ponds. Gently sweeping dog-leg holes add to a layout that's full of interest and variety. Each hole is memorable in its own right.

The challenging back-nine feels more natural and scenic, and contains some of the layout's best holes. Among them the par-5 10th and par-4 14th both require accuracy from the tee rather than length to set up knee-trembling carries over water to reach their respective greens. Residential properties are more in evidence on the front-nine, although even here they tend to discreetly blend into the hole-lining pines and dogwoods.

Stylish fairway and greenside bunkering, well-paced undulating greens, good-width fairways and top quality green-keeping are all hallmarks of this "Team-Fazio" contribution to Pinehurst's stunning collection.

Did you know?

When it opened in 1979, the No.6 course quickly gained the reputation as the most difficult of the Pinehurst nine, especially as it stretched to nearly 7,200 yards from the championship tees. Tom Fazio returned in 2004 to revamp some of the layout that he and his uncle George Fazio had originally created. With funding not quite as constrained as in the late 1970s, Tom Fazio's second bite at the No.6 has put in place one of Pinehurst's most memorable golf courses.
