Born in Scotland, Donald Ross became one of the country's premier designers of golf courses, especially in North Carolina, where he designed forty-one. Pinehurst No. 2 at Pinehurst (1907) is considered his best. Other courses that rank in his top ten best include Pine Needles at Southern Pines (1927), Linville Golf Club at Linville (1924), and the Biltmore Forest Country Club at Asheville (1925).
Pinehurst No. 2, designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1907, is one of the golfing world's most revered golf courses. He would design four hundred courses, but Pinehurst No. 2 is his signature course. A recent year-long renovation has restored the rough edges of his original plans for the course.
