Photo of the Week: The 487-yard Par 5 Tenth at Pinehurst #9

Pinehurst No. 9 is the only Nicklaus course in the Sandhills area. It was originally opened in 1989 as a private club – the National Golf Club. Pinehurst purchased it in 2014 making it the ninth course in the Resort collection.  It’s also known as Pinehurst National.

Par 5 Tenth Pinehurst #9

The tenth hole is fun Par 5 with options.   Risk the tee shot close to the water on the right for the best approach or play safer to the wider fairway on the left leaving a longer carry over the water. The second shot over water tempts one to chew off as much of the dogleg as feasible to get home in two or set up a short approach. Golfers of all abilities can choose precisely the yardage they want to cover the water; shorter left and longer right. It’s the quintesssential risk/reward.
