Pinehurst No. 2 is the centerpiece of the Pinehurst Resort that features nine courses along with The Cradle short course and Thistle Dhu putting course. Pinehurst No. 2 has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America and hosted back-to-back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in 2014 and will do so again in 2029. As the first U.S. Open Anchor Site, the championship will return to Pinehurst in 2024, 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047. Donald Ross said that “Golf should be a pleasure, not a penance,” and nowhere does it fit better than The Cradle.
The newest of the “Big Cats” courses located in Ocean Ridge Plantation in Ocean Isle Beach, Leopard’s Chase is characterized by dense, bentgrass greens, man-made lakes, native areas and grasses all bound together by a network of winding, wooden bridges. Its par-4 18th hole is one of Brunswick County’s best finishers with an elevated green guarded by a waterfall cascading down a wall of coquina boulders, a signature feature of courses designed by architect Tim Cate. The course, along with sister course Tiger’s Eye Golf Links, was recently named by Golfweek as one of the best public courses you can play in North Carolina.
Located in Shallotte in the center of coastal Brunswick County’s, this stunning Arnold Palmer-designed layout features Sunday Ultra-Dwarf Bermuda greens and seven breathtaking holes playing along the Shallotte River. It’s signature 570-yard 9th hole – often referred to as “Arnie’s Revenge” – features marsh along the entire length of the left side and a narrow peninsula green surrounded by marsh on three sides. The hole is one of the most recognizable and challenging along the coast of the Carolinas. This memorable course should be on everyone’s must-play list.

And, the elevated tee boxes assure that you get amazing views with each drive.
Every time golfers tackle Nags Head Golf Links, they find themselves facing a different challenge. Crafted by Bob Moore, Nags Head plays hard along the inner waterway on the southern end of the Outer Banks, where capricious breezes off sound-side waters create a unique golfing experience each and every day. With its coastal winds, rugged shoreline, island holes, seaside vistas, and tees and greens separated by rolling dunes and wild sea grass, Nags Head bears far more than a passing resemblance to the famed Scottish golf links.
