Perfection

It’s not Pinehurst.

It’s not even really golf. And none of these putting strokes will be adopted by anyone who will be playing in either of the two U.S. Opens Pinehurst No.2  is hosting in 100 days.

Tell us your worst Valentine’s Day ever – and WIN!

Broken-Heart-Backgrounds-HD-Wallpapers-4

Pink balloons. Heart-shaped boxes full of chocolates. A dozen roses. Or two dozen.

We don’t care about any of that. Not this year.

We want TISSUES, TEARS and HEARTBREAK. Tell us about your worst Valentine’s Day ever, and win with Pinehurst!

Leave a comment below telling us about the worst Valentine’s Day experience of your life.

An esteemed panel of UNFEELING, LOVELORN judges will determine the best of the worst, with the winner receiving the choice of two 50-minute services at The Spa at Pinehurst or dinner for two at the 4-Star 1895 Grille. (And don’t forget dessert. For the love of humanity, DON’T FORGET DESSERT.)

Entries will be accepted until Valentine’s Day and then we’ll reveal the winners on a day not so, um, “manufactured” as Valentine’s Day.

After all, something good has to happen around that day, right?

Love,
Pinehurst Resort
