Pinehurst No. 6 rests a few miles from the center of Pinehurst, and is also a departure from the first five courses in design and temperament. It’s the first Pinehurst effort by Tom Fazio, who began work on No. 6 in 1975 with his uncle George, a famed designer in his own right. The result was a more rugged, undulating track that demands bigger drives and more aggressive approaches. Tom returned in 2005 to carve new bunkers, soften angles and seed faster greens. The addition of native wiregrass throughout the course gives it a distinctive Pinehurst feel. Between the water, bunkers, wetlands and woods, there are plenty of perils on this par-71 track. The back nine is among Pinehurst’s most challenging halves.

Pinehurst No. 5 was designed in 1961 by Ellis Maples, a Donald Ross protégé. Maples believed that it was the designer’s job to find the golf course that resided in the land’s structure, and his faithfulness to the land is evident in No. 5’s variety of holes that meander up and down, left and right, and over water. No. 5 has more water hazards than any of the other courses at Pinehurst. The combination of water carries, elevated greens and overall greater yardage favors longer hitters. No. 5 offers classic Pinehurst golf—more challenging than Nos. 1 and 3, but less taxing than No. 2. It won’t disappoint.
