Dormie Network Breaks Ground on Long-Awaited Dormie Club Expansion
By Brian Weis
This spring, Dormie Network will break ground on the long-awaited large-scale overhaul of Pinehurst-based Dormie Club. The club, built in 2010 and acquired by Dormie Network in 2017, was ranked as Golf Digest's #12 Golf Course in North Carolina in 2019 and Golfweek's #3 Best New Course upon opening.
Slated to be completed by June 2021, the renovation includes an all-new 16,600-square-foot clubhouse, standalone pro shop, and 60 beds onsite across ten standard cottages, four executive cottages, and an expansive two-level owner's cottage with a lake view. The clubhouse boasts several areas with ample seating, with the ability to host 32 in the dining room, 24 in the private dining space, 12 in the circular wine room, 42 in the lounge, 28+ on the covered patio, and eight in the private covered patio.
"This is a very exciting time to be a network member," said Tony Chapman, General Manager of Dormie Club, the only original Coore-Crenshaw design in North Carolina. "We're pleased to have a presence in the home of American golf and give national members an opportunity to play the course and take in the history Pinehurst has to offer, while staying in an onsite cottage."
Dormie Club is one of six private destination golf clubs owned and operated by Dormie Network, each of which has experienced significant renovations and/or expansions following their acquisition. The network does not pass on any assessments to members and holds no debt on any of its properties.
Dormie Club will remain open throughout the construction period and play should not be affected.

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.

In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
