Your Buddy Trip Itinerary

A Perfect 3-Day Stay

From historic fairways to inventive fare, we’ve got an idea of how you could spend three days and two nights at Pinehurst. There’s so much, you may even need to add that fourth night. Join us for an unforgettable buddies trip or girls getaway.

DAY 1

FIRST:
Play the newly redesigned No. 4 golf course.

Gil Hanse’s stunning redesign of Pinehurst No. 4 has been praised everywhere, including GOLF Magazine, which called it the “Best New Course You Can Play.” So, play it!

 

NEXT:
Visit Pinehurst Brewing Co. for smoked BBQ + beer on tap.

There’s a new energy in the village of Pinehurst, and it’s coming from the old power plant. Housed in the historic building that provided power to the first guests at Pinehurst in 1895 is now Pinehurst’s brewery, which features up to 10 beers crafted on site along with classic North Carolina barbecue and brisket from the smokehouse out back.

 

THEN:
Have a night cap at the North & South Bar at the newly renovated Manor Inn.

There’s no better nightcap spot in Pinehurst now after the opening of the new North & South Bar in the completely renovated Manor. Even with more than 70 bourbons, scotches and whiskeys and craft cocktails on the menu, the North & South has to be seen.

DAY 2

FIRST:
Play the centerpiece of Pinehurst Resort, Donald Ross’ No. 2 course.

It is Donald Ross’ masterpiece, a timeless classic where the greatest to have ever played the game have walked the same fairways and been bedeviled by the famed turtleback greens. When the U.S. Open returns in 2024, it will be the fourth time in 25 years the national championship has been played on No. 2 – that hasn’t happened at another course since the turn of the 20th century.

 

NEXT:
Enjoy a drink at The Deuce – the best “19th hole” in golf.

Pinehurst’s guests have been convening on the veranda overlooking the 18th green of Pinehurst No. 2 for over a century. The Deuce is the perfect pub at that spot, with open-air windows allowing the sights and sounds of groups finishing their rounds to complement the local beers, cocktails and delicious pub menu.

 

THEN:
Have a go at The Cradle, called “The most fun 10 acres in golf”.

The music is playing, the Pine Cone vintage beverage cart is serving and you only need a couple of wedges and a putter to play what Golf Channel calls “The most fun 10 cares in all of golf.” This is Gil Hanse’s signature on short courses, with nine holes carved over 789 yards on the very land where Pinehurst’s very first golf holes were designed in 1897.

 

Pro-tip: Stop by The Pinecone at The Cradle and try the Transfusion.

DAY 3

FIRST:
Soothe your body and mind during a massage at The Spa.

With some of the best courses in the world, golf at Pinehurst can be demanding on the mind and body. Relax with the Champion’s Massage – inspired by one of the Pinehurst’s U.S. Open Champions – or rejuvenate and be ready to go in just three minutes with a cryotherapy session.

 

NEXT:
Challenge your short game at Thistle Dhu.

After a few loops around The Cradle yesterday, by now you know golf should be about fun, too. Take a spin, then, on Thistle Dhu, Pinehurst’s 18-hole putting course that meanders over 75,000 square feet – and around the famed Putter Boy statue. There are even scorecards to keep the competition light and fun.

 

THEN:
Stroll through the village exploring shops & restaurants.

Just a short stroll from the Carolina Hotel, Holly or Manor, you’ll find the shops and restaurants of The Village of Pinehurst. Located in the same historic buildings that framed the center of the Village a century ago are a number of unique boutiques, gift shops and dining venues to explore along with the historic village homes and cottages that line the adjacent streets.

 

Pro-Tip: Before you head out, be sure to enjoy the overflowing breakfast buffet that’s been called “The Best Breakfast in Golf!”
