www.golfclubatlas.com poster and former Sr. Editor for Travel + Leisure Golf (NLE), who now runs http://www.out-and-back.net/ a popular golf architecture and travel site, has put together a great little video piece on the restoration at Pinehurst #2. I was lucky enough to be invited to help by contributing some of my restoration photos to the cause of highlighting the brilliant work done by the Coore and Crenshaw crew.
Now back open, Tom, along with C and C shaper Kyle Franz provide some great insight into the focus of the work, as well as providing beautiful images of the newly reopen American Classic. Please check out his video, its a fabulous example that many classic courses could learn from, although they may not have the luxury of naturally sandy subsoil and wiregresses, their is much we can all learn about returning our greats to the way they were intended to be enjoyed.
#18 late in the afternoon
My pre-restoration photos from Fall 2010 include shots from #8, 18 and more than didn't make final cut. More of my pre-restoration photos have been contributed to the USGA Architecture Archives and may also appearing in an upcoming issues of Golf Digest with some of Dunlop White III's work on the restoration. Thanks Tom for letting me help!
