This year's US Open is being held at Pinehurst Resort. Pinehurst Resort runs nine golf courses; Course No. 2, the most well-known, first opened for play in 1907. Designed by Donald Ross, it's played host to a number of important competitions. The resort features golf courses created by a number of renowned architects. Donald Ross, Ellis Maples, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, and Gil Hanse are some of these architects. Most of the courses are surrounded by homes, but Pinehurst #7 is the only one designed as a housing complex.

Pinehurst Resort golf courses

With ten courses—including one of the most recognisable designs in golf—Pinehurst Resort is among the largest golf resorts worldwide.


Pinehurst, which hosted the 1936 PGA Championship, 1951 Ryder Cup, and many US Opens, is defined by that legendary course for many golfers. Thousands of visiting golfers have copied and taken pictures of the well-known fist-pump statue honing Payne Stewart's thrilling victory at the 1999 US Open. Due to its history, layout, and position as the primary location for the US Open for many years to come, Pinehurst No. 2 is now more well-known than ever. The course underwent a renowned restoration in 2010 under the direction of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw.

Architect Gil Hanse oversaw a significant renovation of Pinehurst No. 4 more recently. Pinehurst now boasts a solid 1-2 punch thanks to that work, with the property's newest addition, The Cradle, a fun and engaging par-3 course, complementing the two championship courses. More golf is in store, as Pinehurst No. 10 is being built by Tom Doak, Angela Moser, and the Renaissance Golf Design team. It will debut before Pinehurst hosts the U.S. Open in June 2024.

Details about the Pinehurst Resort holes

The Pinehurst Resort golf course has 18 holes, and in recent years, there have been some modifications to make it even better for the golfers.


1.1st Hole:

Par 4

Yardage: 402

More natural areas have come into play by removing turf on the right, left, and behind the green, giving players more alternatives off the tee.


2. 2nd Hole:

Par 4

Yardage: 507

The second one is still among the hardest holes on the course. During the US Open, it was one of four par-4s that could be played from more than 500 yards off the back tee.


3. 3rd Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 387/329

The third hole can be set up during the championships as a drivable par-4. Approach shots over the green could roll far down the hill since the turf behind it has been removed.


4. 4th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 529 – 565

It is now a par-4 instead of a par-5, with the men playing roughly 530 yards and the women about 450 yards.


5. 5th Hole

Par 5

Yardage: 576 – 472

It was transformed into a par-5, as it was played in the PGA Championship of 1936.


6. 6th Hole

Par 3

Yardage: 219


7. 7th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 424

The seventh features an enlarged fairway, a new back tee, and sandy rough all along the right side. There will be a dogleg right that is between 280 and 300 yards long.


8. 8th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 502/486 option

This is a par-5 in regular play but will be a par-4 during the championship. Balls will continue to flow from right to left in solid and fast conditions, putting the sandy wiregrass into play to the left of the fairway.


9. 9th Hole

Par 3

Yardage: 191/186 option


10. 10th Hole

Par 5

Yardage: 617

The longest hole on the course has been expanded, and wiregrass and sandy conditions will be all around.


11. 11th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 483

The 11th hole, which Ben Hogan referred to as one of his favourite par-4s, has been restored to its former appearance and playability.


12. 12th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 484

The course's longest hole features wiregrass and sand that are strategically important near the green and off the tee.


13. 13th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 385

The 13th hole on the course is frequently one of the more thrilling ones to play. To stay in the fairway when using the back tee, exact yardage will be necessary. Sand and wiregrass come into play on the left side of the green when playing as a driveable par-4.


14. 14th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 473

The 14th, which plays with the prevailing wind, will play similarly to previous holes, with sand and wiregrass defending the fairway and green in place of Bermuda grass.


15. 15th Hole

Par 3

Yardage: 202

Trees behind the green have been removed, giving the hole a very different appearance from the tee. It's one of only two greens that has been somewhat altered, and it features a lot more hole positions.


16. 16th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 528

Normally a par-5, in championship play this is the second longest par-4 in the world.


17. 17th Hole

Par 3

Yardage: 205

The 17th hole is longer than earlier championships and features more hole positions.


18. 18th Hole

Par 4

Yardage: 451

The final shot in Ross' masterwork plays around wiregrass and sand with a small dogleg right. The final round of the 1999 Open would now see Payne Stewart's tee shot land in wiregrass and sand.
