Good News! Reopening of Pinehurst No. 2


Last week, on September 4th, Pinehurst Resort & Country Club announced the reopening of Pinehurst No. 2 following a transformation of its greens from damaged grass to ultradwarf bermudagrass. This is the latest step in an evolution to extend peak conditions throughout the year and particularly during the heat of the Pinehurst summer.

Did you know? Ultradwarf bermudagrasses have shorter rhizomes, faster ball speeds, and are more heavily stoloniferous?

Pinehurst No. 2 is the fourth of Pinehurst’s nine courses to have the heat-tolerant bermudagrass installed on its greens. Pinehurst No. 1 was successfully converted to Bermuda in 2012 and Pinehurst No. 3 and No. 8 were converted in 2013. In addition, Thistle Dhu, the popular new putting course installed in 2013, features ultradwarf bermudagrass.

Check out this video below, featuring he recovery of Pinehurst No. 2 following the back-to-back U.S. Opens – all done in 3 minutes. This is basically watching grass grow, but note the sunrises, the storms, the blue skies and the ever-rolling clouds.

I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to playing on the recently upgraded Pinehurst No. 2 greens!
