No. 1 The Beginning


It All Started Here

Before the dawn of the 20th century, Dr. Leroy Culver built the first nine holes and John Dunn Tucker added the next nine, but it is clearly Donald Ross’s touch that you feel on Pinehurst’s first golf course.

Recalling his Scottish heritage, Ross made liberal use of bunkers, both across the fairway and around the green. No. 1 was a great start for Pinehurst, and it’s a great start for your visit.
