Since 1898, Pinehurst has been the foundation of golf in America. The Pinehurst Resort Club, which serves its guests in the finest traditions of golf, has been the catalyst for the growth of five world-class courses that begin and end at its doors. Over the past century, the Resort Clubhouse has evolved from a modest two-story structure to the expansive and iconic venue that overlooks Pinehurst’s fairways today, one whose architecture has become recognizable world-wide.
Pinehurst Resort, home to back-to-back U.S. Opens in 2014, has hosted more single golf championships than anywhere else in America. In 1996, Pinehurst was designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. This designation included the entire historic district of the Village of Pinehurst to include the country club and the five golf courses.
The Resort Clubhouse features the Donald Ross Grill, a favorite lunch destination, and the 91st Hole, the ideal spot to gather after a round of golf, and shop for the best in Pinehurst apparel and merchandise in the Pro Shop. In 2013, Pinehurst completed a $3.7 million renovation to the member clubhouse, which is adjacent to the Resort Club. The renovation includes an interior redesign and dramatic architectural improvements to the East Veranda overlooking Pinehurst No. 2.
