With the purchase of the Pinehurst, N.C., property by the Nebraska-based golf investment company, it becomes the latest addition to the Dormie Network of destination golf clubs that also includes Briggs Ranch GC, Arbor Links and Ballyhack GC. Under the management of Landscapes Unlimited, LLC, golf course improvements are planned and a new full-service clubhouse, halfway house and on-site lodging accommodations, including cottages and executive suites, will now be built as the club returns to its original status as a private course.
The Dormie Club in Pinehurst, N.C. has been purchased by Hainoa, LLC, a Nebraska-based golf investment company, to become the latest addition to the Dormie Network of destination golf clubs.
Under its new ownership, and management by Landscapes Unlimited, LLC, the club, which has a golf course designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, will see a number of immediate renovations and upgrades, including golf course improvements and the construction of a new full-service clubhouse, halfway house, and on-site lodging accommodations, including cottages and executive suites, as it gradually returns to its original status as a private course.
Dormie Club is a short drive from the Village of Pinehurst and was opened in 2010. Its 18-hole course 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,” says the club’s Membership Director, Mike Phillips. “It features a mix of pine trees and hardwoods and the beautiful 55-acre Coles Mill Lake, which dates back to the early 1900s.”
The club extended play to non-members almost immediately after opening and today remains a public course. But as part of the Dormie Network, it will transition immediately from public to semi-private and eventually to private status, with invitation-only membership set to be established by 2020.
Other properties in the Dormie Network include Briggs Ranch Golf Club in San Antonio, Texas; ArborLinks in Nebraska City, Neb., and Ballyhack Golf Club in Roanoke, Va. Corporate and national memberships include access to and full member privileges at all courses within the network.
“Dormie Club is a truly exceptional club that was conceptualized as and designed to be a high-end private course,” said Zach Peed of the Dormie Network. “Our vision is to make it one of the finest pure golf destination courses in the region.”
“It’s already a tremendous value to our current and future members, but the club’s incredible potential and the vision we have for what it can be make it an ideal addition to the Dormie Network,” Peed added.
