Golf Channel Debates Pinehurst As Home Of American Golf

The Golf Channel, in an online article, offered two writers debating who best deserved the title of Home of American Golf, Pinehurst or Pebble Beach? The Pinehurst “argument” noted the Village of Pinehurst and greater Carolina Sandhills have made for one of the most enriching places in America to play this grand game for more than a century. This is mostly because Pinehurst represents the most direct link that the American game has to Scotland. Even with today’s development and expansion, the Village of Pinehurst, well off any major interstate artery, still bleeds the old Scottish game, whether you’re chipping into the fireplace at the Pine Crest Inn or pouring through rare golf books at the Tufts Archives on a rainy morning. Better yet, virtually every must-play club around the triangle of Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen allow guests on their greens, just like nearly every Scottish links golf course.
