The Grey Fox Course – Pinehurst Golf
Widely considered the most challenging course, the Grey Fox features hilly terrain, several doglegs and towering pines. The Grey Fox emphasizes shot-making with a well-bunkered layout with characteristic elevated greens. Golfers must avoid the sand and position the ball on the proper side of the fairway so that they get the best approach angle to the small greens. The Grey Fox is in the best condition it has been in over 10 years, providing all golfers a playable challenge. If you played this course years ago, it is time to return. You will be pleasantly surprised.
From the first tee box, golfers look downhill to a large lake jutting out to divide the fairway forcing players to hit a 3 or 5 wood. Often with a slightly downhill lie, the second shot on this par 5 requires a well struck shot across the hazard to set up and approach to the narrow but deep green. The 6th hole requires a solid tee shot to cross a large pond. Try to cut off more than you can chew and a watery grave awaits your ball. Like most holes on this course, the forward tees do not require golfers to carry water but sensibly offers plenty of space to go around. On the East side of Hoffman Rd. the newest developed holes offer steeper hills and panoramic views. The most scenic holes, #9 , #12 and #13, require well placed tee shots with demanding approaches to multi-tiered greens that are slightly smaller than the opening holes. The Grey Fox course is on the rise to be a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
The Red Fox Course – Pinehurst Golf
The Red Fox Course is the member’s favorite. This Pinehurst golf course offers wide manicured fairways and large elevated fast rolling greens. Water comes into play on 6 holes requiring forced carries from the back tees but with the option of going around the hazards from the forward tees. Fairway bunkers are strategically placed to grab the wayward shot and there is no lack of sand guarding the greens. This beautiful Gene Hamm design offers plenty of “bail out” places to avoid the most severe drop offs and deep faced bunkers.
Hall of Fame architect Gene Hamm designed these 36 holes to take full advantage of the rolling hills, soft sandy soils and plentiful area lakes.
