Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
Dormie Club continues to be a huge hit. It's rare that a golf course receives so many accolades in such a short time. Within the first year of opening, Dormie was included in the "Top 100 American Curses" by both Golfweek and Golf Magazine. Now, Golfweek rates Dormie the '2nd Best ourse You Can Play in NC" and the "64th Best Modern Course in the US." None of this should come as a surprise as Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore have created a new stunning masterpiece of American golf, taking advantage of Dormie's spectacular wooded site that features dramatic 80 foot elevation changes, natural lakes, pine forest and sandy waste areas. The features are complimented by Dormie's world-class attention to details and service.

What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
We don't have one, we have 18. Each hole is very unique. Dormie offers a variety of holes, short and long. From 113yds to 653yds and everything in between. We have flat holes and 100 foot elevation changes. Truly 18 different holes.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
#15. You can play the hole conservative or aggressive. My advice is to play for the fat part of the fairway to avoid the fairway bunkers and hazard along the entire right side. This will leave you with a mid iron. When hitting to the green keep the ball below the hole!
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
Chicken Salad Sandwich & a Dormie - Vodka and Lemonde.
Who Holds Course Record and What Was Their Score?
Carl Peterson - 62. That's with a bogey on #10.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.
