The Pinehurst Resort is the centerpiece of this quaint village. Originally the dream of Boston philanthropist James Walker Tufts, was to create a health resort for Northerners. Patrick Law Olmstead designed the village for him and 226,000 trees were planted. In the early 1900s the estate covered 10 square miles, with four hotels, 50 cottages, two excellent golf courses and a 35,000 acre shooting preserve. Trolleys transported guests to and from the Southern Pines Train station. Scotsman Donald Ross designed more courses including the famed No.2. The Resort today and Pinehurst are known throughout the golf world. They are home to many PGA tournaments including the Men’s and Women’s US Open both returned here in 2014.
