Fifteen Miles, Over Thirty Legendary Courses
With over 30 golf courses within a 15-mile radius, including the host courses for the 2024 U.S. Open and 2022 U.S. Women’s Open Championships, it’s no surprise that the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen area also has the highest concentration of courses of any area on Golf Digest’s 2017/2018 list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses.
Nestled in the rolling Sandhills of central North Carolina, the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen area was the long-time home to the father of golf course architecture, Donald Ross, and is home to many of his masterpieces and some of golf’s most memorable moments. So whether you’re playing the legendary courses, enjoying the timeless southern charm or taking part in the region’s storied traditions, there’s no other place in the world quite like the Home of American Golf.
This past summer a TV crew from Golf Channel visited the Home of American Golf to shoot a 30-minute special that aired November 12, 2019 as part of the Golf Advisor Round Trip series.
