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.
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.
Rees Jones – son of Robert Trent and brother of Robert Trent, Jr. – built No. 7 in 1986, on the site of a forgotten nine-hole employee course laid out by Donald Ross.
The layout unfolds overdramatic, hilly terrain that’s dotted with wetlands in lower-lying areas. No. 7 has many colorful flourishes. Old bunkers from the employee course adorn the tee of the par-4 4th hole; one wetlands area, the “Devil’s Gut,” must be cleared on your approach to the short par-4 7th hole, and Jones’ trademark “Fingers” bunker demands accuracy on 16.
Every hole on No. 7 features something to test your game. Just ask Tiger Woods, who won his lone Pinehurst title to date here in the 1992 Big I Junior Classic.
Building a new course grand enough to celebrate Pinehurst’s first 100 years might intimidate some architects, but Tom Fazio took on the assignment with gusto. No. 8 – which opened in 1996 – combines classic Donald Ross concepts with the whimsical snarls that have become Fazio’s calling card.
Fazio took full advantage of the 420 acres of rolling terrain and natural wetlands to fashion a course that’s visually enthralling and challenging yet fun to play; it’s a nod to No. 2, but hardly a replication. Many feel No. 8 synthesizes all the elements of the Pinehurst golf experience into one layout.
This championship track has twice been home to the PGA Club Pro Championship. Just a short drive from the main club, the Pinehurst spirit is quite alive at No. 8 and served as the companion course for the 2017 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship.
THE CRADLE PAR THREE COURSE
Nearly 120 years after golf arrived at Pinehurst, The Cradle is born, a nine-hole short course that even the newest to the game can enjoy.
Designed by golf architect Gil Hanse, the Golf Channel calls The Cradle, “the most fun 10 acres in all of golf.” Mere steps from the Resort Clubhouse, it is the same area where, in 1898, Dr. Leroy Culver carved our first nine holes out of the sand. Over the next century, Pinehurst came to be referred to as the Cradle of American Golf.
THE CAROLINA HOTEL
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.
