Pinehurst No. 7 (Rees Jones) - Pinehurst No. 7 was designed by Rees Jones in 1986 and is located on the site of a forgotten nine-hole employee course that was laid out by Donald Ross. At 7,216 yards, No. 7 is one of Pinehurst longest tracks, unfolding over dramatic, hilly terrain that’s dotted with wetlands in lower-lying areas. Elevated tees let you register the challenges that wait; elevated greens demand approaches struck with authority. No. 7 has many colorful flourishes. Old bunkers from the employee course that Jones uncovered during initial routing adorn the tee of the par-4 4th hole; one wetlands area, the “Devil’s Gut,” must be cleared on your approach to the short par-4 7th hole, and Jones’ trademark “Fingers” bunker demands accuracy on 16.
