Welcome to Pinehurst North Carolina "The Cradle of American Golf". More than 40 courses call the heart of North Carolina's Sandhills home. Golf courses line Midland Road heading into the historic village of Pinehurst.

 

Donald Ross, the legendary Scot who made his home here, left a lasting legacy by designing Pinehurst No. 2; Pine Needles and Mid Pines, among others. Modern architects have come to appreciate the area's rolling hills, stately pines and sandy soil ideal for golf.

 

Walk beneath the whispering pines and you’ll understand the wonder Donald Ross experienced as he first surveyed the property in 1900…and the exhilaration Payne Stewart felt in his stunning 1999 U.S. Open victory on No. 2.

 

Golf is as much a part of Pinehurst as the pines themselves. There’s a reverence for the game found here that lives in the traditions, championships and legends that have made Pinehurst one of the most storied golf resorts in the world and a must-play for all golfers.

 

Spas here offer several signature treatments derived from local botanicals. Browse the work of local artists in unique shops, or explore the area’s art and military museums. The peaceful communities nestled among the area's whispering pines make for a relaxing place to find rejuvenation no matter how long you stay.

It's been said that Donald Ross gets more press today than he ever did during his 5O-year career as one of the world's most prolific golf course designers. The Scottish golf architect, who died in 1948, is still “King of the Green Scene" in many ways.


Ross was himself a player, at one time a greens keeper, killed in teaching, club making and repair. He became a full-time architect in 1912, after bonding with the Tufts family near Boston. He would go on to thoughtfully design and invest his talents in the famed Pinehurst No. 2 and eventually 400 courses nationwide.

  

What distinguished Ross? Experts praise his style for its strategic rather than punitive architectural principles. Accounts recall a philosophy behind each hole, a love for the land too, which in the early days exchanged sand for greens (Ross was a first to replace the sand with Bermuda grass).


Is the spirit of Ross alive and well today? Other greats have been inspired since Ross' time. See for yourself more than three dozen courses, all within fifteen minutes of each other. While modern courses and the game itself have changed from Ross' time - from a ground game to aerial - it's hard not to reflect on why the Ross legacy lives on.
