Better golf deals for the value for the non-pros than Pinehurst No. 2, site of U.S. Open
I know a lot of people who have been disappointed with Pinehurst No. 2, site of this year’s U.S. Open. Now, it IS a great course, no doubt about it, but nearly all of its mystique lies in its surreal greens. Trying to stop a long approach on No. 2’s greens is like – like the pros said about TPC Sawgrass in its early days – like trying to stop a ball on the hood of a Volkswagon.
And for this, they charge $375 for walk-in green fees!
For the average golfer, there are better deals in Pinehurst, for the money. Like Pinehurst Nos. 4, 7 and 8. Some say No. 7 is just as difficult.
The National is also a better value for the money, a great Nicklaus design.
