Butler Cabin, Augusta National (c) Burgh Golfer

I had the opportunity this spring to play Pinehurst #8 in North Carolina with three good friends.  We had a great time and were unsure which course to play since #2 gets all the press.  After asking around and even speaking to the people at Pinehurst they said play 8.  They said Pinehurst #8 is a great track, should not be crowded and is a great course.  They were correct, it was a great track, very challenging and quite beautiful.  Since we played in the springtime it was not crowded or overly expensive compared to #2.  If you ever get to North Carolina for golf, Pinehurst is a must.  Although it is somewhat remote that is part of its charm.  Not to mention great golf, lovely people, excellent service from the staff and exciting history.
