Take a shot at Pinehurst No. 8
A big breakfast at The Carolina Hotel and a fresh start make for the perfect time to hop the resort shuttle and head out to “The Centennial,” Pinehurst No. 8. Tom Fazio was commissioned to design this tribute to Ross to celebrate Pinehurst’s first 100 years, and his approach blends classic Ross concepts with whimsical snarls that have become his calling card over the years.
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.
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!”
