US OPENS AT PINEHURST
Pinehurst was founded in 1985 by James Walker Tufts. The first golf course was designed in 1897, just four years before the town hosted the first championship golf tournament, the United North and South Amateur Championship of 1901.
In 1907, local designer Donald Ross created the famous “Pinehurst No. 2,”. Ross went on to contribute to the area’s charm and beauty for almost 50 years. Pinehurst’s beautiful pine trees and rolling sandhills are at the root of American golf history.
The Pinehurst Resort and Country Club features nine 18-hole golf courses and has been named the anchor site for the US OPEN Championships to be held in 2024, 2029, 2035, 2041, and 2047.
Pinehurst is also host to the US OPEN Championship, the US Women’s OPEN, the US Senior OPEN, the US Women’s Amateur, the Amateur Championships, the PGA Championships, and the Ryder Cup.
