Dormie has been put at the top of everybody's list of must play courses in the "Home of American Golf". In 2014 the course was name one of the Top 100 "Best Modern Courses" and ranked #3 on Golfweek's "Best Courses You Can Play in North Carolina". Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw's first original layout in the Tar Heel State is just a short drive north of the Village of Pinehurst where they recently completed the restoration of the Pinehurst Resort's storied No. 2 course. History was made in 2014 as No. 2 was the first ever site to host the Men's and Women's United States Open Championships in back-to-back weeks.
The renowned architectural team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw selected 307 of the site's 1,028 acres to route 18 magical holes. There are no housing or artificial roadways within the golf course perimeter. The par 71 course can play 6,984 yards, but has only 68 acres of managed grass. The balance of the site is maintained in natural sand "floors", wire grasses, pine trees and vegetation native to the Sandhills region. In addition to the golf course, Dormie's Members and Guests enjoy a cozy 2,500 sq. ft. temporary clubhouse which includes men's and women's locker rooms, golf shop and comfortable living, bar and dining rooms. A wood-burning fireplace and back porch seating complete the rustic atmosphere of this former hunting lodge.
