Pinehurst No 9 Course

Pinehurst No. 9 (Jack Nicklaus) – Built By Jack Nicklaus in 1988, Pinehurst No. 9 is a magnificent 7,122-yard course and is as meticulously designed as it is compelling. An intriguingly well-balanced course, this Nicklaus classic features wide fairways and undulating putting surfaces that test your mind and your true golfing ability. Each hole has been customized to create a great diversity in the way it can be played. Added to this uniqueness are tall pines, grassy swales, groomed waste areas and a natural variety of lakes and streambeds beautifully fashioned to give No. 9 its own distinctive look.

In the late 80s and early 90s, Nicklaus had begun to dampen his style a little, leading to this period of transition when he engineered the Pinehurst National Golf Club. Frequently tossed in the same classification of complexity as Pinehurst # 2, the National Golf Club features strong holes that demand the golfer to be fully dialed into their round. For instance, the stunning 2nd hole that is a margin short of 200 yards, with the green sitting immediately behind a pond with no bailout area, with the exception of a long ball where making par is almost impossible from, That being said, low-handed handicappers tend to appreciate Jack’s complex and challenging style more than high-handedness, and welcome the sensation of hitting tough shots.

Old trees line the fairways and a lot of sand plays a major role; two things golfers would expect when playing in the North Carolina Sandhills. As a whole, the course is a great challenge and is undoubtedly underrated in many of the media sources that play a part in the ranking systems.

We highly recommend a round at Old Jacks’s golf course on your next trip to Pinehurst

The No 9 course at Pinehurst is a Nicklaus classic, a well-balanced but fair test of golf at the heart of the World’s Best Golf Resort!
