Dormie Club in Pinehurst, N.C., has been purchased by Nebraska-based golf investment company Hainoa, LLC, making it the latest addition to the Dormie Network – a network of destination golf clubs
According to Hainoa, the Coore-Crenshaw club will see a number of immediate renovations and upgrades – including the construction of a new clubhouse, halfway house, and on-site lodging accommodations – as it gradually returns to its original status as a private course.
Opened in 2010, Dormie Club features 110-foot elevation changes, three natural lakes, and an aesthetic that draws inspiration from the Scottish Highlands.
“Dormie Club stretches across a massive 1,020-acre expanse of absolutely stunning land,” said Dormie Club’s Membership Director Mike Phillips. “It features a mix of pine trees and hardwoods and the beautiful 55-acre Coles Mill Lake that dates back to the early 1900s.”
Its “Old World’’ design includes a number of reachable par fours, wind tunnels, bunkers positioned to stimulate creative strategy, and a 241-yard reverse Redan par three.
Straying from its original concept, Dormie Club extended play to non-members almost immediately after opening and today remains a public course. As part of the Dormie Network, it will transition immediately from public to semi-private and eventually to private status with invitation-only membership by 2020.
Now under the management of Landscapes Unlimited, LLC, Dormie Club will see a number of critical course enhancements, as well as several large-scale renovations and improvements. Plans to construct a full-service clubhouse and halfway house are already underway. Landscapes Unlimited will also oversee the addition of lodging accommodations, including on-site cottages and executive suites.
With the acquisition, Dormie Club joins the ranks of Briggs Ranch Golf Club in San Antonio, Texas; ArborLinks in Nebraska City, Neb; and Ballyhack Golf Club in Roanoke, Va., as part of the Dormie Network.
