124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2



Capital City Club: Brookhaven

Atlanta, GA, United States Private

Overview

Brookhaven is the club's "city" course, though when it was built by architect H.H. Barker in the early 20th centrury it was far out in the country. The city has grown up around it and playing here is a pleasant juxtaposition of green-grass nature and town with the high-rises of nearby Buckhead and the upscale Brookhave neightborhood on display from various points on the course. The golf is fitted onto a tight property and has seen its fair share of renovation and remodels over the decades, with the most recent in 2009 when Bob Cupp rebuilt and re-engineered the course with new holes, a new routing and a new look, somehow finding space for a large new driving range and room for continual clubhouse and amenity expansion. Brookhaven is a fun shotmaker's course with sporty, creatively contoured greens, great variety for such a small footprint, and a wonderful setup run from the par-5 12th through the par-4 15th. The exaggerated bi-level green at the eighth, however, continues to be a source of controversy.
