Can't wait to see what Hanse does
No. 2 will always be my favorite course among the resort's collection, but this was my second favorite. And now with the announcement of Hanse's renovation, I can't wait to see what No. 4 becomes. The first tee of No. 4 sits right beside the Thistle Du putting green, so arrive in plenty of time to experience it. Although No. 4 runs alongside No. 2, 4 has slightly more elevation change. The holes along the small lake - the par-3 4th, par-5 13th and par-3 14th - are standouts. The collections of par 5s are excellent, true three-shooters with virtually no chance of getting home in two. The last three holes make it tough to protect par en route to the house. The canvas is firmly in place. If Hanse restores No. 4 half as well as Coore/Crenshaw did No. 2, it will soar up the Top 100 public ranks.
It's probably pretty big.
I was able to get to 3 of the 4 par 5s in two this weekend... great course nonetheless.
Top 10 course I have ever played
I am approaching 300 courses played in my life and this is certainly a Top 10 on that list. I'm sure you have read enough about the amazing clubhouse and the amenities but the course itself is fantastic. We played it on a drizzly, extremely windy day and it didn't matter in the least. Pinehurst #4 is playable for almost anyone and you will love the conditions. Perfect tee boxes, fairways and greens, even the bunkers were in amazing shape. If you have the means this is one of the top 3-4 courses in the Pinehurst area. Make sure it's on your list next time you are in the area.
#4 a close second to #2.
#4 might be my next favorite course from #2. My father and I went on a bucket list trip for Father's Day.The course provides a variety of shots along with the course being playable for the resort guest. The course is littered with pot bunkers up the fairways, which can be tricky to get out of. Greens played slower than the other courses we played on our trip. The Par 5s are gettable and the Par 3s for the most part were downhill shots. The first and third holes are really the only holes where you can not see the green off the tee. At the end of the day I felt the course was a fair test of golf.
Don't miss No. 4 if you visit Pinehurst
Played this course after a very hard rain but the course dried out very quickly. The greens were the bet I've ever played even after the hard rain. The course is very playable off the tee, with room to miss a little. The greens ... well you better play to the right spot and with the right distance. Miss one and the rolling mounds are simply fun. Not an easy track but it is simply spectacular in evry way I can judge a course - and that was even in bad weather. I could play this course every day and may not hit the same shot twice. It's fun without being overly difficult like it's older brother. Love No. 4.
“Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!” Yea, you probably know where I’m going. Pinehurst’s No. 4 would easily be the crown jewel of any other collection of cours
“Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!” Yea, you probably know where I’m going. Pinehurst’s No. 4 would easily be the crown jewel of any other collection of courses, if it were not for it’s famed sibling, the brilliant Pinehurst No. 2. Tom Fazio renovated No. 4 in 2000 and the results are excellent. The 170 yard, par 3, 4th hole is a downhill beauty that requires a precise tee shot over a lake and equally as challenging (and risk-and-reward thought provoking) is the par 5, 13th hole that is a sharp dogleg to the left around a lake. A decent drive leaves you close enough to hear the sirens sweetly singing, begging you to go for the green in two, a carry of upwards to 200 yards over water. Both holes represent the quality and variety of the holes on No. 4 and how great golf comes in many varieties at Pinehurst.
No. 4 might be tops for everyday golfers at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club
The old and new collide at Pinehurst No. 4, a Donald Ross original reimagined by Tom Fazio in 2000. Fazio did such a great job in reinventing the 7,117-yard course that it's widely considered the second-best at the resort these days. He splashed the rolling hills with more than 140 new pot bunkers, bringing the combined total of the traditional traps and yawning waste bunkers to 188. A large lake adds a scenic touch that No. 2 can't match. Three excellent holes, par-3s at no. 4 and no. 14 and the dogleg par-5 13th hole, grace its shores. The long par-4 finishing hole, lined with a waste bunker up the entire left side, separates champions from chumps.
