Golf & Recreation




In the Village of Pinehurst, you will find endless opportunities to walk the fairways of world-class courses at the Pinehurst Resort, where champions and traditions have been made since 1898.  As the site of more championships than any other golf course in the country, Pinehurst Resort hosted 14 days of championship play with the back to back 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in history on the famous Pinehurst No. 2 Course.  With a total of nine courses and hundreds of miles of fairways, your next tee time at Pinehurst Resort could be right around the corner. Only Village of Pinehurst residents who own property are eligible for Pinehurst Country Club Membership

In 1996, The Village of Pinehurst and Pinehurst Resort were designated as a National Landmark for our historical, significant role in U.S. golf history.




There’s no shortage of family fun in and around the Village of Pinehurst.

Thanks to the temperate climate of the Sandhills, the outdoors is a playground almost year round. Residents can enjoy a walk or run through 7 miles of scenic greenway trails or spend a few hours on the disc golf course, soccer field, bocce ball court, or tennis court at one of our parks. Camelot Playground has a castle where children can explore secret passages and tunnel mazes. Nearby Reservoir Park in Southern Pines offers nature and hiking trails, fishing, and boating. The Weymouth Woods-Sandhills Nature Preserve offers four miles of well-marked, easy to hike trails as well as plenty of great spots for birding or picnicking. Our newly constructed splash pad also provides a great place to cool off! 

Matinee Races

Moore County’s sandy soil and plentiful equestrian offerings is a powerful draw for horse enthusiasts. One must-see is the Pinehurst Harness Track, a 111-acre equestrian facility that has been a winter training center for Standardbred horses since 1915. In fact, the Pinehurst Harness Track was the winter home of the 2016 Hambletonian Trot Winner, which carried a $1 million purse.  The Harness Track hosts a variety of events throughout the year including matinee races, dressage shows, and polo matches. The nearby McLendon Hills Equestrian Center provides boarding and riding lessons to riders of all ages and experience. Less than 30 minutes away, the Carolina Horse Park is the only equestrian facility in the mid-Atlantic region with multi-disciplined capabilities suitable for championship level equine competitions.
