W hen it was conceived in the early 2000s, Dormie Club was set to become some- thing truly unique: A high-end private club with a secluded feel, yet located just minutes away from the beloved golf destination of Pinehurst, North Carolina. In time, the facility transitioned to semi-private with limited public play, and has hosted multiple Carolinas Golf Association events. With the property's recent addition to the growing Dormie Network of destination golf clubs, Dormie Club is set to see extensive renovations and upgrades that will fulfill the club's original promise in new and exciting ways. The 18-hole Dormie Club course, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, is about to receive tee-to- green refinements that will ensure outstanding play- ing conditions year-round, as well as new cart paths, additional tee boxes and other upgrades. The prop- erty is also about to raise its game off the course, with a new clubhouse, restaurant and a number of four- person cottages set for construction in the near future as Dormie Club transitions from a public course to a private club by 2020. While Dormie Club's new cottages and clubhouse are scheduled to come online in the next year, the course is a must-play in the Pinehurst area. The highly acclaimed 18-hole layout by Coore and Crenshaw earned high praise from the start, and the architects are working with Dormie Club on embel- lishing their original work, including improvements to the practice facility and completing projects that were never finished by the original owners. "Ben and I are very proud of the Dormie Club lay- out, but there are a lot of details on the property that weren't properly finished when it was first opened," Coore says. "We're going to be putting the finishing touches on a lot of those areas this summer. The course has been well-maintained, but now it's going to get the level of resources and attention that will really elevate it. "This is a special golf course, and I'm glad to see the investments that are going to be made to the course, and the addition of a new clubhouse and cottages." Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw have a well- deserved reputation as one of the top architecture teams in golf. The team has collaborated on high-pro- file designs at top-ranked properties such as Bandon Dunes, Sand Valley, Big Cedar Lodge and Cabot Links. Dormie Club is of the same high caliber as those designs, and it will soon be a unique opportunity to enjoy the duo's work in an upscale private setting.
