After operating since completion as a public golf course, The Dormie Club in Pinehurst, North Carolina is set for transformation into the private enclave originally intended. The course was sold to Dormie One Properties earlier this week, who immediately announced plans to eventually convert the public access course into a private club model.

Designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, the Dormie Club opened in 2011 and occupies a property of more than 1,000 acres. The course was conceived as a members-only club but after the original developer ran into post-GFC troubles it was opened up for green fee play.

According to local website thePilot.com, the new owners are also planning to build a permanent clubhouse and halfway house.

The Dormie Club, one of the area's top golf course properties, is under new ownership. Dormie One Properties inked the deal on Tuesday afternoon, but financial terms of the sale were not disclosed.

“Dormie Club is a truly exceptional club that was conceptualized as and designed to be a high-end private course,” said Zach Peed, of Dormie One. “Our vision is to restore it to its intended glory as one of the finest pure golf destination courses in the region.”


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.
