Pinehurst at a Glance: Grand Beginnings & History of Pinehurst
James Tufts purchased what is now Pinehurst for $1/acre in 1895, as a health-centered winter retreat. He purchased the name Pinehurst from an individual entering the name in a contest to tag a real estate development in Martha's Vineyard.

The physical plan for the Village of Pinehurst was prepared by the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape designer acclaimed for creating New York City's Central Park. The Holly Inn opened on New Year's Eve in 1895, charging $3 per day for lodging. The inn is now classified as a National Historic Landmark.

In 1900, Scottish-born Donald Ross was hired as golf professional for the first 18 holes built in the area. Ross would later redesign Pinehurst No. 1 and design No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 for the Tufts Family. He has been credited with the design or redesign of over 400 golf courses throughout North America during his career.

Many of the world's rich and famous have crossed the thresholds of Pinehurst & the Rockefellers, DuPonts and Morgans to name a few. John Philip Sousa, Will Rogers, Bing Crosby, Mary Pickford, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey and others have vacationed at Pinehurst. Amelia Earhart landed her plane at the resort's airstrip!

The Resort's famed No. 2 golf course is the proud home of the North and South Open and Amateur Championships, 1991 and 1992 PGA Tour Championships, 1994 U.S. Senior Open, and 1999 and 2005 U.S. Open Championships.
