The Cradle like the rest of Pinehurst is full of snow. 4-5 inches of snow, the melt off is on, and this weekend and next week should be fine for golf here at he home of American Golf.
Today, not so much, as most of the Village and the surrounding communities are closed for a snow day. You see, snow and Pinehurst don’t go well together.
Even the main clubhouse is closed.
Hopefully tomorrow is better day. Snow snow go away, golfers wish to play today. Putter Boy and the Payne Stewart Statue statue look like well crafted snowmen.
The big news here today is the sale of Forest Creek, a development with two courses. For the first time ever, designer Tom Fazio has bought in as a partner, to buy up some of his own courses. His group now owns the 112 unsold housing lots, and over the next two years put over 2 million into improving the two golf courses. Story by the Pinehurst Pilot.
