Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina is the largest golf resort in the US, and its course number 2, designed by Donald Ross and opened in 1907, is seen by many as one of the finest championship golf courses in the world. Nestled in scattered longleaf pines, this par 72, 7588-yard (from the US Open tees) course has hosted numerous PGA, US Open, and other championships. This TinyMtn model contains all of the famous Pinehurst No. 2, many holes from adjacent courses, the clubhouse, and parts of the surrounding neighborhoods. All of this is captured here in exquisite detail, thanks to airborne LiDAR scan and orthoimagery data distributed by the US Geological Survey.

TinyMtn models are most affordable in the "Sandstone" and "White Strong and Flexible" materials. This model is in "Sandstone," which is a glued gypsum material. When you receive the model it will be ready for display, though it may smell funny and need some time to air out. "Sandstone" models are much more brittle than "White Strong and Flexible" models, but feel more like light stone. Do not soak it in water, though you can safely seal it with Polycrylic or a similar water-based clear spray sealant. Read more about this popular material here
All TinyMtn models have hollow bottoms - this is to save on weight, and thus cost. Many larger models also have extra flanges on their undersides to increase rigidity and strength. To make the model more solid, you should feel free to carefully pour resin into the bottom cavity, or glue a properly-sized slab of wood or another material into it.
These models have been optimized for the above materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please email@example.com
