7 things to do at Pinehurst this spring

1. Take in the beauty

The iconic “Pinehurst” topiary that welcomes guests to the Carolina Hotel is a sight to behold any time of year, but it’s even more enchanting during the spring when it’s remarkably lush and green.

Everywhere you go, you’ll see flowers blooming and hear birds chirping. Take a deep breath and enjoy the smell of the Pine trees.

Spring is one of the most intoxicating times of year to play golf at Pinehurst. The courses are in pristine shape and the weather is pure bliss.

The temperatures top out in the 70s or 80s most days, creating ideal golfing conditions.

We’ve already mentioned the beauty, but it should be said that the courses are stunning this time of year thanks to the dogwood trees and azaleas that add pops of color to an otherwise green landscape.
