According to a release from Pinehurst Resort, Gil Hanse has been contracted to redesign their No. 4 course. The work will begin this winter and take place in stages over the coming years. “The overwhelmingly positive feedback we received from the work on No. 2 encouraged us to explore options that are a continuation of that effort,” said Bob Dedman, Pinehurst owner and CEO. “We think this is a thoughtful approach to the evolution of golf at Pinehurst, and we think Gil Hanse, with his timeless and natural design philosophy, is the right person for the project.” The course has been renovated in the past by Robert Trent Jones, Rees Jones, and most recently Tom Fazio in 2000.
The goal of the project is to revert the course to a more natural and minimalist design that is closer to the original Donald Ross layout. The No. 1 and No. 3 courses are also scheduled for work to increase natural elements similar to No. 2 and revert back to their original designs.
