18th Hole, Pinehurst No. 2

Even if you shoot pictures just as a hobby, you know the phrase, “good light.”

Monday morning, the third in a stretch of spring-like days in Pinehurst, had good light.

Great light, actually.

As golfers began to descend on the Resort Club for another day bathed in 70-degree temperatures, the sun, clouds and Carolina blue skies mixed together to form a tapestry as brilliant as the grounds Donald Ross created for the grand game.

It was good light for a great game.

Join us in Pinehurst to experience days like these. To be able to enjoy Pinehurst’s perfection with the best rates of the season is a unique opportunity. But even if you need a few weeks to plan, Pinehurst has options for you as well.

When James Walker Tufts originally came to this area in the late 1800s, he was struck by the temperate climate, especially in the winter months. Envisioning a retreat capable of healing the mind, body and soul, he began to build what we now know as Pinehurst today.

And during weeks like these in mid-January, it is easy to see, feel and experience exactly what Tufts had in mind. Temperatures will soar into the 70s by this weekend, but the deep Carolina blue skies are already here. A morning walk around Pinehurst on Jan. 9, 2013, provided us with these images.

Come and join us at Pinehurst, and experience not only the Cradle of American Golf, but the healing of your mind, your body and your soul.

Ready…Set…PUTT!

Even Pinehurst, on occasion, has to wait out a frost delay.

And on the first day of the 2012 Donald Ross Junior Championship on Dec. 28, players wanting to roll a few putts on Pinehurst’s famed practice green had to wait for the sun to rise and the dew to disperse. But once it did, more than 250 junior golfers crowded the Pinehurst Short-Game Complex to finish warming up for the impending shotgun start.
