Home of American Golf

Legendary Links

With nearly 40 golf courses within a 15-mile radius, including the host courses for the 2024 U.S. Open and 2022 U.S. Women’s Open Championships, it’s no surprise that the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen area is known as the Home of American Golf®. We will soon be the home of “Golf House Pinehurst”, too. The USGA will establish a second headquarters in Pinehurst, to include a new equipment-testing facility, innovation hub, museum/visitor center and offices by 2023, and will host five U.S. Open Championships on Pinehurst No. 2 by 2047.

Nestled in the rolling Sandhills of central North Carolina, the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen area was also the long-time home to the father of golf course architecture, Donald Ross, and is home to many of his masterpieces and some of golf’s most memorable moments. So whether you’re playing the legendary courses, enjoying the timeless southern charm or taking part in the region’s storied traditions, there’s no other place in the world quite like the Home of American Golf®.
