Pinehurst No. 2 part deux? Mid Pines Golf Club, much like the celebrated U.S. Open host down the road, has returned to its Donald Ross roots after a recent restoration. Mid Pines, an original Ross routing dating to 1921, reopened in August 2013 to rave reviews. Architect Kyle Franz used aerial photos from the Tufts Archives as a blueprint to guide his team. The result is a classic course that lets you experience the way the game was played years ago.
The golf course at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C. has hosted three U.S. Women's Opens. The quality of the winners -- Annika Sorenstam (1996), Karrie Webb (2001) and Cristie Kerr (2007) -- certainly matches the merits of this classic Donald Ross design, which dates back to 1928. The Sandhills terrain gently rises and falls. Big hitters can challenge doglegs but only at their peril.
