A New Look to the Greens


Another project for us this spring is to bring the greens back to thier orginal size and shape.  Over the years they have become circles and ovals.  Donald Ross put some great visual interest into the greens when designing them.  Thanks to the Tuffs Archives in Pinehurst, NC, the club was able to obtain copies of the original drawings for the golf course.  We are using the drawings to re-create the greens as best we can.  Instead of rushing into the project, we are taking our time and will not get them all completed this year.  So far, greens 5,7,13,14,15, and 17 have been done.
