When you claim the designation as the Home of American Golf, you better have some sterling credentials to back it up. And the Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen area can do just that with 43 world-class courses designed by the game’s greatest names. Donald Ross, the father of American golf architecture, chose North Carolina’s Sandhills as the ideal setting for his legendary vision, while golf’s greatest players have displayed their brilliance here for over a hundred years.
This heritage and love of the game bestow a special quality on the Home of American Golf that make it unique and unequalled as a golf destination. Its bustling villages embrace visitors, and its wonderfully manicured courses welcome players and cater to them to ensure only the finest experience. Its variety of resorts, hotels and inns offer accommodations for every taste, with renowned Pinehurst Resort consistently ranking among the world’s best. And there’s plenty to see and do off the course, with a mild year-round climate adding to the appeal.
One visit to North Carolina’s Sandhills and Pinehurst makes it pretty easy to understand why Bobby Jones called this “the St. Andrews of United States golf.”
