With eight pristine courses and a tradition that stretches back to 1895, Pinehurst has become known as the unofficial home of golf in America. Tee off among gently rolling sand hills, on holes framed by tall longleaf pines. The dramatic No. 2 course is Donald Ross's masterpiece--plan on playing it at least twice.
