Pinehurst Championships

Pinehurst Resort has served as the site of more single golf championships than any destination in America and, in 2014, made history again, becoming the first to serve as host to the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships in consecutive weeks. Many of the greatest players in golf history have won championships at Pinehurst Resort, including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Francis Ouimet, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Babe Zaharias, Louise Suggs and Yani Tseng. Among these tournaments:

• The 2014 U.S. Open Championship was the third played at Pinehurst No. 2 in 15 years, the quickest turnaround for a single course in more than 100 years
• Pinehurst No. 2 is the only course to have held the United States Golf Association’s five most important tournaments (U.S. Open U.S. Women’s Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur, U.S. Women’s Amateur)
• Pinehurst No. 2 is one of only four courses to have hosted the U.S. Open, PGA Championship and Ryder Cup
• Pinehurst Resort has served as host for seven United States Golf Association championships since 1989, more than any other site in the U.S.
• The Women’s North & South remains the longest running women’s amateur championship in the U.S.
• Ben Hogan won his first professional tournament at the 1940 North & South Open

Pinehurst will host three USGA nartional championships within the next decade: The 2017 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship (Pinehurst No. 8 and Pinehurst No. 2), the 2019 U.S. Amateur (Pinehurst No. 4 and Pinehurst No. 2) and the 2024 U.S. Open (Pinehurst No. 2).
