Pinehurst Resort

While Pinehurst Resort is notable for its variety of accommodations — including a historic boutique hotel and a sportsman's-style lodge that Arnold Palmer used to visit with his father — it is best-known to American golfers as one of the finest fairway destinations in the United States. Its tee-time heritage dates back to the 1890s, and the property hired its legendary golf pro and course designer Donald Ross in 1900. Today, the resort boasts nine distinctive courses, including Ross' beautifully restored Pinehurst No. 2. In addition, guests can enjoy the use of an expansive spa, 18-court tennis center and a beach club on a private lake. Eight dining venues include the elegant 1895 Grille, serving Carolina flavors, and the Ryder Cup Lounge, named after the famed golf competition, hosted at the resort in 1951.
