Pinehurst No. 8 - Pinehurst, NC
Pinehurst No. 8 opened to the public in 1996 and was designed by Tom Fazio. The course is an ode to Donald Ross but incorporates a great Fazio feel to it. The course has twice played host to the PGA Club Pro Championship.
This was my first round at Pinehurst resort and after making a couple of nice pars, I jumped on the bogey train for what seemed like an eternity. Even though this was not one of my best efforts, the constant smell of pine kept my head in the game and I managed to have a very enjoyable time.
