Ranked #50 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World by Golf Course Architecture

Established in 1998, Tobacco Road is younger than many of the courses it has surpassed in its accumulation of accolades. Architect Mike Strantz was a student of the Golden Age Architects whose turn of the century designs set the standards while contributing to the development of the principles of golf course architecture and design.

Strantz allowed the rolling terrain to evolve into one of golf’s most uncompromising designs. Beyond the panoramic views and stunning vistas lies a course that tests all of a player’s faculties. Five sets of tees allow a player to undertake the course at a level worthy of their skill; however, one should always keep in mind – it was Strantz’s goal to test “a player’s eye, determination, and wits.”

Ranked #25 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

A three-time U.S. Open Site. A three-time winner of Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine’s Best Golf Resort in America award. The home of the famed No. 2 golf course. Pinehurst Resort seems to have it all when it comes to great golf destinations.

Around the world, Pinehurst is where the American golf story is rooted, and where it continues to flourish. Most know of its modern history – with stories like the Payne Stewart putt that won the 1999 U.S. Open. But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years. Pinehurst is America’s first golf resort, and continues to be one of its' best.

July 24th, 2023

Pinehurst No. 4 had previously been ranked as one of North Carolina's top-five courses in the 1990s, but it slipped to No. 16 in the most recent Best in State ranking. The course, which was designed by Donald Ross in 1919, had previously been remodeled by Tom Fazio—who called the No. 4 restoration one of his proudest remodels to date.

Now, Hanse and his team have put their own signature on it, giving an ode to some of the Ross elements and creating larger natural “sandscapes” with native vegetation, including wiregrass and broom sedge plants, which matches the look of the restored No. 2, while being perhaps slightly more playable than No. 2.

A true work of modern art, Hanse has created a very strong second reason to visit the famed Pinehurst Resort.

Ranked #8 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina

The Mid Pines golf course remains exactly as Donald Ross crafted the course in 1921, a rarity among his masterpieces. Impeccably manicured to modern standards, Mid Pines is a classic gem that has played host to many national competitions including the 2002 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.

Many people have characterized the course as “pure Donald Ross” because of how it fits the land where it was built. It’s been said that Mid Pines was never conceived as a daunting task to the finest players competing under championship conditions, but rather the course was intended as a fun course, but with sufficient challenge for members, guests and professionals.

Ranked #11 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina

Ranked #11 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina

Pine Needles’ award-winning golf course is the first in the nation to be awarded four U.S. Women’s Open Championships. Named the #4 golf course in the state by Golfweek, the course was designed by the legendary Donald Ross in 1927, and meticulously restored by Kyle Franz in 2017.

Donald Ross provided generous fairways and challenging green sites. There are strong elevation changes throughout the course yet is very walkable. The course has been lengthened from its original routing but still provides an intimate routing with short distances between tees and greens. Wayward shots will likely find a bed of pine needles to rest on; much like the backyards of virtually every home found on the course.



3 nights - July 21st-24th, 2023

The Carolina Hotel, a century-old, AAA Four Diamond gem dubbed “the Queen of the South", has hosted kings, queens, presidents and the best golfers in the world since it opened its doors in 1902.

This elegant hideaway is part of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning Pinehurst Resort, a mega-historic golfing retreat in the North Carolina Sandhills.

Traditional accommodations at The Carolina Hotel are exactly what you’d expect from a century-old, AAA Four Diamond winner: elegant and sophisticated, with classic details like a wood-and-wrought-iron headboard and calming neutral hues. Don’t worry, there are plenty of modern touches, as well, from the LCD flat-screen TV to the complimentary Wi-Fi.

Afternoon tea, parking and shuttle service around the resort are free. Other amenities include an elegant restaurant, a casual lounge and bar, and a coffee shop, plus tennis courts and bike rentals. There's also a fitness center and a luxe spa.

3 nights - July 24th-27th, 2023

At Mid Pines, you’ll experience a tradition of Southern hospitality and distinction that dates back nearly a century. Built in 1921, the stately Georgian-style Inn wears her age with grace and charm. Walking through the halls, you’d almost expect to see Sam Snead holding court at the bar, or Julius Boros showing his putting stroke to an admirer in the lobby.

The Longleaf Villa accommodates up to 12 guests. The spacious living room and dining room is large enough for everyone to gather.

The villa also includes a poker room. Shortleaf Villa is one-bedroom studio connected to the main house, and is perfect for a group leader wanting private accommodations.
