Since opening in May 2010, Dormie has been receiving rave reviews by amateur and professional players. In fact, Dormie may leap scores of other deserving courses into the coveted Top-100 Course lists for 2012. In just over a year, Dormie is at the top of everybody’s list of must play courses in the “Home of American Golf”.
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. In 2014, No. 2 will make history as 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 309 of the site’s 1,030 acres to route 18 magical holes. There will be 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.
A thoughtful 13,000 square foot permanent clubhouse, and world-class golf practice facilities, plus separate water activity and homeowner’s amenity centers located along Cole’s Mill Lake are all planned as the number of members and property owners increase.
