Why Golf in North Carolina?

It’s the way of life in this part of the country that influences my writing.

Nicholas Sparks

The Spanish first settled in North Carolina in the 16th century and golf arrived 2 centuries later in it’s sister state of South Carolina. 

The Sandhils of North Carolina boast The Home of American Golf” – Pinehurst. Rich in golf history and tradition, Pinehurst is a bucket list golf destination for any golf enthusiast. Donald Ross lived there for nearly 50 years as he worked on several courses, including the most notable PInehurst #2. In 2014 the USGA hosted the US Open and US Women’s Open in back to back weeks, both played on Number 2. The back to back Opens will be repeated again in 2024.

Pine Needles and Mid Pines are two more popular Ross designs. Pine Needles is the site for the 2022 US Women’s Open. 

Experience the best of the coast and the highland scenery in North Carolina, with many golf courses along the way. This US state is sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Smokey Mountains on the west. It has some of the most stunning vistas and trails the great outdoors can offer no matter the season.
