Founded in 1895 in the heart of the North Carolina Sandhills, Pinehurst Resort ® features nine world-class golf courses, an award-winning spa, three historic hotels, 40 condominiums, tennis and other recreational activities. Widely known as the cradle of American golf, Pinehurst has served as host to more single golf championships that any other site in America, with events including the U.S. Open, PGA Championship, Ryder Cup Matches and many other national championships. In 2014, Pinehurst and No. 2 hosted unprecedented U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships in back-to-back weeks.

Pinehurst Resort was originally established in 1895 by James Walker Tufts as a health retreat. The towering pines and mild Southern breezes were thought to have medicinal effects. The firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape designer acclaimed for creating New York City’s Central Park, prepared the physical plan for the Village of Pinehurst.
