Mid Pines Golf Club

Architect: Donald Ross (1921)

Many people have characterized Mid Pines as "pure Donald Ross" because of how it fits the land where it was built. It has few forced carries or artificial or contrived holes.

Says Lee Pace, writing about the course in Pinehurst magazine: "Mid Pines was never conceived as a daunting task to the finest players competing under championship conditions... Mid Pines was intended simply as a fun course with adequate challenge for members and guests of a private club and resort." Even so, this course does play home to many national competitions including the 2002 USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship. It has also hosted several eGolf Professional Tour events in the last two years. You're going to find hillier terrain on this course than Pine Needles; Mid Pines is also slightly shorter.
