Pinehurst Resort

Steeped in golfing history, Pinehurst is undoubtedly one of the most iconic resorts in the USA. Set in the heart of the stunning North Carolina Sandhills, approximately 2 hours east of Charlotte, the magnificent resort boasts four accommodation options, numerous restaurants and extensive facilities, from a world-class tennis club to a luxurious spa. With nine spectacular onsite courses, Pinehurst has to be considered as one of the world's top golf resorts.

Any discussion of golf in North Carolina begins with Pinehurst, which is often described as the spiritual home of golf in the USA. The first course was built in 1899, and the club brought in Donald Ross to expand its golf portfolio in 1900. By 1903 it consisted of Pinehurst No 1 and nine holes on No 2. There are now a staggering nine courses to choose from. The most famous layout at Pinehurst is No 2, the 2014 venue for the US Open and US Women’s Open. Jack Nicklaus says No 2 is his favourite course from a design standpoint, describing it as “a totally tree-lined golf course without a tree coming into play”. Host to the 1951 Ryder Cup and the US Open on 3 occasions, the course is ranked 14th in the USA and 23rd in the world. Notorious for its infuriatingly small greens, only the best approach shots will be rewarded. The 5th, 9th and 16th are particularly excellent holes, however the great balance and challenge throughout is what really makes this course so memorable.

Although all the attention is rightly given to No. 2, the other 8 will certainly not disappoint. No. 4 is regarded as one of the toughest courses in the US with an average of 10 bunkers per hole, meaning only pinpoint accuracy will do. Numbers 7, 8 and 9, similarly held in high regard, all rank in North Carolina’s top 50.
