A New England-style village planted in the middle of North Carolina’s Sandhills around 1900, Pinehurst has long been associated with golf’s greatest legends. In June 2014, the eyes of the world will center on its hallowed links when the U.S. Open returns to Pinehurst. In fact, both the men's and women's U.S. Opens will be played here, the first time in history that both tournaments have been played in the same year on the same course. Non-golfers and golfers who can see beyond the greens also delight in the world-class tennis courts, croquet lawns, equestrian facilities and European-style spa at Pinehurst Resort. Here, too, are culinary experiences to please the most sophisticated of palates. And well-heeled shoppers feel right at home in the upscale boutiques lining the brick walkways of the beautiful little town.

While history buffs may get lost in the local library, art aficionados often venture down dusty roads in search of the handcrafted pottery of Jugtown and Seagrove. Nature lovers find the trees, flowers and shrubs that grow in abundance both beautiful and nurturing. Whether you play golf or not, you'll find plenty to do in Pinehurst.
