Pinehurst Resort

 Pinehurst, North Carolina



Founded in 1895 in the heart of the North Carolina Sandhills, Pinehurst Resort is an unparalleled destination featuring nine world-class golf courses, an award-winning spa, three historic hotels, tennis and other recreational activities. Widely known as the cradle of American golf, Pinehurst has served as host to more single golf championships that any other site in America, with events including the U.S. Open, PGA Championship, Ryder Cup Matches, PGA Tour’s TOUR Championship, U.S. Women’s Open and many others. Its most revered golf course, Pinehurst No. 2, is considered one of the game’s architectural masterpieces and was recently restored to Donald Ross’ original vision. In 2014, Pinehurst and No. 2 played an unprecedented role, serving as the site for the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open in consecutive weeks.


Set in one of America’s only Historic Landmark Districts, Pinehurst Resort originally was originally established by James Walker Tufts as a health retreat amid the towering pines and mild Southern breeze. The firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape designer acclaimed for creating New York City’s Central Park, prepared the physical plan for the Village of Pinehurst.
