Donald Ross, 1927

More famous — and expansive — than its sister course, Mid Pines, by virtue of having hosted three U.S. Women’s Opens (with a fourth coming in 2022), Pine Needles originally was intended to be a housing course. But those plans never fully materialized as the course opened just before the Great Depression. Still, Ross fanned the holes out in every direction and draped the fairways with great creativity across the rolling landscape. Pine Needles’ collection of par-4s is especially sturdy. The winning scores here are never far from par as birdie options are scarce. Expect to see the false sides and fronts on the greens — like at 1,7 and 18 — give the women fits in 2022. Max fee: $245 (Photo: Patrick Koenig)
