Pinehurst has been home to amateur golf since the early years of its founding, serving as the home to the longest consecutively running amateur championships in the United States, the North & South Amateur. It is at Pinehurst where Richard Tufts penned the “Creed of the Amateur,” wherein he writes, “Amateurism, after all, must be the backbone of all sport– golf or otherwise.

Pinehurst Resort and the USGA

Pinehurst and the United States Golf Association have enjoyed a relationship spanning decades. The 2019 U.S. Amateur will be the 10th USGA championship to be hosted by the club and the ninth since 1989, more than any other site in the United States. Pinehurst has served as the site of more single golf championships than any destination in America, and in 2014, became the first course to serve as the host of the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open in consecutive weeks. The U.S. Open will return in 2024 and will be the 11th USGA championship to be hosted by the club and will be the 10th in the last 35 years, more than any other site in the United States.

Pinehurst No. 2

Opened in 1907, No. 2 was designed by Donald Ross, who called it “the fairest test of championship golf I have ever designed.” Ross was associated with the course for nearly a half-century, improving the course continually until his death in 1948. No. 2 is best known for its crowned, undulating greens, which are some of the most complex and widely hailed in the world. Ross believed in providing golfers with strategic choices, and Pinehurst No. 2 was intended to epitomize that philosophy.

Pinehurst No. 4

Originally opened in 1919 as the last of Donald Ross’ original designs at Pinehurst Resort, No. 4 has evolved several times over the last century. In 2018, noted designer Gil Hanse set out to restore the original character and spirit of No. 4. Hanse’s design and routing will include exposed sand and native wire grass, wider fairways and natural topography.
