Village of Pinehurst 2014 US Men's & Women's Open   Only five months away and the course and Village are very busy with preparations. All the major sponsors will be here Jan 21 to pick their tent locations and finalize all the final details.   All the hotel rooms in the area are totally booked, many of the hotels in Raleigh are sold out as well.  Tickets seem to still be available from the USGA for both the Men's and Women's Opens.   The interesting thing to...
I can help you out with Tee times on #2 or #7 or #8. Give me a call next time you are through. You didn't visit the Pinecrest? Tobacco Road is a love it or hate thing. It certainly is different. Any resturant recommendations to share?

Please let us know how it goes. I think you will find Beacon Ridge is your weakest choice, but you got a great price. You should check out the Restaurant at the...
I bet they are just low compression balls. I use and resommend lower compression balls during winter play. Also it doesn't hurt to keep them warm prior to your game. Bob
