Before Dan Maples transformed it into one
of the areašs most popular and playable
courses, the site had been a training
facility for some of America's top
thoroughbreds. As a tribute, Dan
incorporated into this quality design,
elements from the original estate, including
part of the old training track. The
course features both a subtly rolling
Scottish style front nine and dramatic
elevation changes on the wooded back nine.
Golf Digest deemed Longleaf as "the most
playable course in the Pinehurst area".
