“The Village of Pinehurst is not just a wonderful place to visit, it’s an unbelievable place to call home.”
Underneath the towering long-leaf pines in the heart of North Carolina, lies a charming New England-style village that will stop you in its tracks. There are eight reasons to make the Village of Pinehurst your home:
- World-class golf and recreation opportunities. Pinehurst No. 2, site of the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships is ranked the #1 course in NC.
- Quality Health Care in top-notch facilities that rival services found in larger metropolitan areas.
- The Safest City in North Carolina
- Centrally located in North Carolina between the beach and the mountains.
- Excellent education with public and private school options.
- Exceptional year-round cultural and arts activities, from equestrian events to community-wide concerts and festivals.

- Proximity to Fort Bragg, just an easy 33-mile drive.
With a population approaching 16,000, 99% of residents rate the overall quality of life as good or excellent. No wonder SmartTravel.Tips ranked the Village of Pinehurst as the #1 place to live in North Carolina.
With all of these wonderful reasons to make Pinehurst your home, what are you waiting for?
It’s accepted that St. Andrews is the “Home of Golf.” If that’s the case,
… the home of American golf is Pinehurst.
For some, a trip to the Sandhills is like leaving home for college – golf college. Everything you’d want – all nine(!) courses, housing, dining — is elaborately placed around weaving roads and paths on a sprawling campus, pine straw bordering every turn.
The quad in this analogy is just as delightful as your alma mater’s grassy space. It’s made up of an 18-hole putting course named Thistle Dhu that abuts a 9-hole short course named The Cradle, with a grassy perch filled with lawn chairs overlooking it all.
A true Pinehurst Day involves all of them – say, 18 on Gil Hanse’s wide-open redesign of No. 4, a wedges-only loop on the short course and settling bets on the putting course. To complete the syllabus, pop in for a pint in the Ryder Cup Lounge or the new Pinehurst Brewing Co. Or, if you made birdie on any of No. 2’s par threes, a free beverage awaits in its 19th hole, the Deuce. Congratulations, graduate.
