Opened in 1895, Pinehurst Resort is known as “The Cradle of American Golf.” Located in the Village of Pinehurst in North Carolina’s Sandhills region in the South Central part of the state, it is less than a 2-hour drive from Raleigh/Durham and Charlotte, making it an easily accessible retreat. Known for hosting the US Open golf championship many times, golf is the primary activity at Pinehurst. However, it also offers swimming in the pools, tennis on the tennis courts, fine dining and shopping in town, a spa for relaxation, and boating at the marina, a short drive from the main resort. It features luxurious overnight accommodations, offering a comfortable retreat away from busy life.
My first experience with Pinehurst Resort was when I competed in the Pinehurst International Triathlon in 2017. Although my focus for that visit was on my race that day, I did get to do some sightseeing and enjoyed lunch at the Holly Inn after my race. My dad and stepmom were in the process of relocating to Pinehurst from Northeast Ohio, so I had a place to stay with my dad in the Condos at Pinehurst. Most of my experience with my first trip was at Pinehurst Marina, where the olympic distance triathlon was based. Lake Pinehurst is beautiful and offers boat rentals and a beach for relaxation.
Since then, our family has made many trips back to Pinehurst to visit my dad and stepmom. We have enjoyed swimming at the pool several times during our hot summers, dining at the 91st Hole inside the Resort Clubhouse, hitting golf balls on the driving range, and playing golf on The Cradle, the resort’s Par 3 golf course. Pinehurst Resort offers a spectacular retreat away from busy life.
