Pinehurst Resort (No. 2)

Pinehurst, N.C.

Easily the most high-profile course restoration of 2011, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw's retro rethinking of the Donald Ross classic may also prove to be the most influential. Working with sheafs of photos from 1940s-era North & South championships, the designers replaced acres of hack-it-out Bermuda rough with landscapes of hard-packed sand and wiregrass that are both visually compelling and promote interesting recovery options. Ross's devilish tortoise-shell greens, however, remain the same.
