If you can’t make it to Pinehurst for Easter weekend, you can still get in on the fun.
Our virtual Easter Egg Hunt kicks off Friday and runs through Easter Sunday. Follow us on Instagram @pinehurstresort to play.
We’ll post photos of Easter eggs and Peter, a mischievous white rabbit, hidden in spots throughout the Resort. The first person to correctly guess where each picture was taken will receive a Pinehurst prize.
Hop over to our Instagram account to start following us now.
NOTE: Each person can only win once during the course of the contest.
Actor Dennis Haysbert will serve as the grand marshal of the third annual Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance, a vintage car showcase set for May 2 at the Resort.
Haysbert starred as politician David Palmer in the hit television series “24” and appeared as baseball player Pedro Cerrano in the popular “Major League” film trilogy.
He will spend two days at the Pinehurst Concours in connection with the USO of North Carolina – the event’s main charity.
“It is an honor for me to come and stand behind the USO of NC, our troops and their families for such a recognized event …,” Haysbert said. “Any time we can blend a special event like the Pinehurst Concours with honoring our military and the sacrifices that they make every day, (it) is an absolute pleasure of mine.”
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.

2. Play golf
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.
If you’re checking Pinehurst off your bucket list this year, you’ve probably already scoured the Internet in search of secrets to make your trip a memorable experience.
But we know the best advice is passed down from friend to friend, so we asked our friends (OK, OK, they are technically former guests) to tell us what tips they would give a newbie. They took to Twitter and Facebook to share their best advice, which we have compiled below.
First, let us share a few tidbits from our staff.
