Legacy Golf Links and Southern Pines Golf Club made the grade!   Thanks!

NO. 15

Legacy Golf Links, Aberdeen
18th hole, par 4, 459 yards

Home to the 2000 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links, where Michelle Wie became the youngest-ever competitor at age 10, this Jack Nicklaus II design concludes with one of the region’s most spectacular holes. A short carry over water leads to a heaving, tree-framed fairway that eventually bends to the right, revealing a stunning approach over a large lake shored up by a rock wall. A shallow green awaits, with a bunker long-right and a bail-out short left.


NO. 3

Southern Pines Country Club, Southern Pines
3rd hole, par 3, 198 yards

Formerly owned by the Elks Club, this Donald Ross original bares its antlers at the third. From an elevated tee, it’s easy to see what’s ahead—a healthy long iron to a well-bunkered green that slopes sharply from back to front. It’s tough to chase a ball to a back pin, with a fear of airmailing the green giving pause. Yet a front hole is cut in the narrowest portion of the green. Find the middle of the putting surface and you still face a tough downhill putt. Simple in plan, stupendous in execution.
