Pinehurst’s Putter Boy included as one of golf’s must-see landmarks


Golf Digest lists Pinehurst’s Putter Boy among golf’s greatest landmarks.

Pinehurst and the Putter Boy go hand-in-hand. Two-time U.S. Open Champion – and two-time North & South Amateur Champion – Curtis Strange sees the connection as well as anyone. “Weren’t we all that Putter Boy once? I was,” he told us recently.

“It’s the coolest symbol in all of golf,” Strange adds.

Golf Digest this week collected what it feels are golf’s most treasured landmarks, and there among Augusta’s Amen Corner and The Old Course’s Swilcan Bridge, Golf Digest lists Pinehurst’s iconic Putter Boy. It’s an honor that humbles us here at Pinehurst greatly, and one we don’t take lightly.

And neither, it seems, do those who visit Pinehurst. Perhaps it’s the second stop after a moment with the Payne Stewart statue, or maybe the first, but the Putter Boy standing between Pinehurst’s two main putting greens offers a glimpse into Pinehurst lore and legend, one that has been woven over a century. Below are just a few of the images you, our guests, shared with us.
