A three-time U.S. Open Site. The home of the famed No. 2 golf course.
Around the world, Pinehurst is where the American golf story is rooted, and where it continues to flourish. Most know of its modern history – with stories like the Payne Stewart putt that won the 1999 U.S. Open. But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years. We are America’s first golf resort, but also a world-class tennis, spa, meetings, special events and family destination.

All of the information you need for this trip can be found below. Visit each day for tee times, course details and any after golf activities.
Club Twirl is a three-day, two-team, Ryder Cup format. Day one, however, is a no formal competition practice round, with a gross skins and net skins element. Arrive, check into the Manor Inn, get acquainted with some new faces, and knock the rust off your game in preparation for day two competition.
The Centennial - Opened in 1996 to commemorate Pinehurst’s centennial, Tom Fazio designed No. 8, synthesizing all the elements of the Pinehurst golf experience into one layout. Fazio took full advantage of the 420 acres of rolling terrain and natural wetlands to fashion a course that’s visually enthralling and challenging yet fun to play.
Course Designer: Tom Fazio
Tee times will begin at 12:50pm and can be found here.

Day two is the first competitive round - Fourball. 2-man teams will play (2) net-best-ball matches against the opposing team. One front-nine match and one back-nine match. Each match is worth 1 point (.5 point for a halved match).
Following the first round of competition, a Par-3 challenge, putting challenge, and friendly wagers will take place at The Cradle (Pinehurst's world famous short course) and Thistle Dew (America's first putting course designed by Donald Ross). Grab your wedges and a putter and enjoy a couple drinks on us. Food is available at any of the clubhouse restaurants.
The Perfect Complement to No. 2 - Visually stunning from tee to green, exposed sand areas, vast cross bunkers and native wire grass meld with the site’s rolling topography and natural ridge lines to create dramatic vistas and strategic options on every hole. Less than a year after reopening in 2018, No. 4 joined famed No. 2 as the site of the 2019 U.S. Amateur.
