In this installment of The Americans in Pinehurst Series, Matt, Fred and I discuss the new Southern Pines Golf Club experience. In the hands of a new ownership group, which also owns nearby Pine Needles and Mid Pines golf course resorts, Southern Pines has undergone a significant renovation and restoration effort from noted architect Kyle Franz. We go back and forth about our impressions from our before and after rounds at the course.
We also chat for a few brief moments about our love for The Cradle and now the Thistle Dhu putting course at Pinehurst, and how that really is the happiest place in golf. Merry Christmas!
