Pinehurst Golf Course and Resort
The Pinehurst Golf Course and Resort is an iconic landmark of American golf history. Though it is most famously known for its No. 2 course, just one of its eight signature courses, the resort offers far more. Visitors can enjoy great features like the twenty-four tennis courts, the 200-acre Pinehurst Lake, croquet and lawn bowl courts, a putting course, boutiques for shopping, and - for those whose favorite activity is relaxation - Carolina rockers on our veranda.

For more than 100 years, the resort has pampered guests with a variety of individual and family-friendly activities coupled with southern hospitality. A brief saunter among the whispering pines instills a sense of wonder that James Walker Tufts and Donald Ross surely experienced back in 1901.

The main draw, of course, is the game of golf. Pinehurst was the site of the 2005 U.S. Open Championship and 2008 U.S. Amateur Championship, and its eight courses are amazingly distinct and challenging. You can play through No. 2 course, where Payne Stewart relished a stunning victory at the 1999 U.S. Open. And at the end of the day, take a break in The Spa located directly beside the resort's main hotel, the Carolina.

This is truly an experience you'll find calling you back time after time.

Village of Pinehurst
The Village of Pinehurst is a quintessential North Carolina town: friendly, quaint, historical and fun. It is here that residents and visitors can enjoy tea parlors and taverns or posh restaurants with dueling pianos and modern bistros; or take a look at history with the archives and enjoy a day on the links. This town is, however, best known for its historical significance in American golf. Pinehurst earned the distinction of National Landmark status in large part due to the Pinehurst Resort, the result of James Walker Tufts' desire to build a health resort.

After purchasing nearly 600 acres of land in 1895, Mr. Tufts contacted a Massachusetts land planning firm headed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the chief designer of Central Park in New York City and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Though ownership of the resort has changed several times since a charter for Pinehurst, Inc., was obtained in 1920, the world-renowned golf courses have continued to be developed and expanded throughout the years.

In addition to golfing, Pinehurst also offers other attractions that make it a true destination in the Tarheel state.

The Tufts Archives, housed in a wing of the Given Memorial Library, preserves and highlights the history of Pinehurst from its founding in 1895 to the present day. It is funded by a non-profit organization created by Richard S. Tufts, James Walker Tufts' grandson. The archives thrive thanks to donations by patrons, sales of images and graphics, and organized fundraisers - and it is free of charge.

In keeping with the tradition of a healthy lifestyle for this resort town, people can enjoy the Village Arboretum. This 35-acre pathway provides a great opportunity to walk, run or bike amid nature's beauty that adjoins Village Hall. The Magnolia Lawn, Meadow Lawn and Pergola Garden are part of the Arboretum, and each may be reserved for weddings, receptions and other special events.

There is much to experience in this iconic golfing town. In an age of corporations, Pinehurst remains home to a multitude of independently owned boutiques and restaurants that offer genuine southern congeniality, a charm unique to this part of the world.

2014 U.S. Open
Pinehurst has a rich tradition of golf greatness, having grown into one of the preeminent resorts in the world over the past hundred years. Between the staunch challenge offered by Pinehurst No. 2 and the regal backdrop of the Carolina Hotel, sometimes called "the White House of Golf," it's no surprise that this Sandhills destination was chosen to host the 2014 U.S. Open Championships. The U.S. Open and the U.S. Women's Open were held here in back-to-back weeks this June, which was the first time that both tournaments were played on the same course in the same year. Martin Kaymer won the Open in dominant fashion, with Michelle Wie winning during the women's weekend.


 

Carolina Hotel
First opened in 1901, the Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst has been a fixture in the Sandhills for over a century. Between the distinctive copper cupola crowning the roof and the sprawling porticos skirting its base, it's easy to see why this majestic accommodation has been called the "Queen of the South." Situated in a part of the world where golf is king, lodging at the Carolina Hotel is not unlike stepping back to bygone days when a gentleman could live through anything and elegance was the defining characteristic of a resort. There are 230 Four-Diamond guest rooms to choose from at the Carolina Hotel, including traditional rooms premium rooms, and two kinds of suites. Guests will also be treated to the culinary delights of Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul should they elect to sup in the Carolina Dining Room, or they can enjoy classic American fare with a  twist in the Ryder Cup Lounge.



Fayetteville

Fayetteville is a city with a full history in North Carolina. As the temporary seat of government for the state during the late 18th century, many important resolutions were passed in Fayetteville, including the ratification of the U.S. Constitution and the charter for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Today, Fayetteville is the sixth-largest municipality in North Carolina and support site of Fort Bragg, the largest U.S. Army base in the country. North Carolina has always contributed freely of her sons and daughters to military service, and that tradition continues to today with Fort Bragg. We are humbled and grateful by the example and service of military personnel who wear the uniform with honor.

Fayetteville itself is named after the Marquis de Lafayette, a Frenchman who served in the American army during the Revolutionary War. He was a fierce champion of American ideals and was greatly impressed by George Washington. After the war, the Marquis toured the nation and wrote an influential book extolling the virtues and wonder of the newly christened United States of America. Many U.S. cities were named after Lafayette, but Fayetteville, North Carolina, was the first.
