North Carolina is renowned for its exceptional golf courses, earning a reputation as one of the premier golfing destinations in the country. The state boasts a diverse array of courses that cater to all skill levels, from iconic championship layouts to charming, hidden gems. A standout among these is Pinehurst Resort, which has hosted multiple U.S. Open Championships and is considered Golf Digest’s 29th best golf course in the country. Most recently, in June 2024, Bryson DeChambeau clinched a memorable victory at this iconic venue. Pinehurst No. 2, designed by the legendary Donald Ross, is particularly famous for its challenging layout and distinctive turtleback greens. This iconic course has been the stage for historic moments in golf, such as Payne Stewart's dramatic victory in 1999.
