At Pinehurst, you’ll discover the timeless elegance that has attracted discerning travelers and golfers to the green hills of North Carolina for over a century. Known as America’s first true golf resort, Pinehurst is rooted in tradition and is a golfer’s dream come true. Save time for a little pampering at The Spa at Pinehurst, which was awarded Four-Stars by Forbes Travel Guide, in between your three rounds of golf on courses two, four and eight.

Enjoy your stay in The Carolina Hotel, a National Historic Landmark built in 1901, and a majestic century-old hotel featuring signature copper cupola and sweeping verandas that make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to an era when elegance defined grand hotels and resorts. Dubbed the “Queen of the South”, some say you can feel the spirit of Pinehurst as you turn onto Carolina Vista. Everything about this stately Carolina recalls the time-honored traditions of the South, and Bobby Jones has called Pinehurst the “St. Andrews of United States golf”.

The historic Course No. 2 is famous not for its beauty, but for the blood, sweat, and tears that have been shed upon its grounds. Crowned greens, carefully placed bunkers, and strategic layouts work together to test the long and short game. Of course everyone remembers the Payne Stewart win on Pinehurst Course No. 2 at the 1999 U.S. Open, and golfers may have the opportunity to stand where he stood during that tournament negotiating the breaks of the green.

Although a majority of the original routing designed by Donald Ross still remains prevalent in Course No. 4, Tom Fazio officially opened Pinehurst Course No. 4 as a new one in 2000 as his tribute to Pinehurst. With over 140 pothole bunkers, this course is not for the faint at heart, or the inaccurate player. Serving as a host to the 2008 Amateur championship, Course No. 4 is easily one of the most beautiful courses at Pinehurst. Especially memorable are holes #13 and #14, both boasting picturesque water views.

Pinehurst Course No. 8 opened in 1996 in honor of Pinehurst’s centennial year. The greens and tees are close together, making this course a pleasure to walk. Fazio included many of the original Ross design in his renovation, such as dips and swales around the greens. This course is an excellent championship course and played host to the PGA Club Pro Championship in 1997 and 1998.
