Please Do NOT Underestimate my Beloved Sandhills!

That "novel idea" actually began nearly 100 years ago with the completion of the first Donald Ross Course. Pinehurst hosted a PGA Championship as early as 1936. Southern Pines and Pinehurst have been the playground of the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts for generations. These beautiful, picturesque towns have a rich tradition not only in golf, but the arts as well. Pinehurst was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (designer of Central Park in NYC) and Southern Pines was home to James Boyd, a noted author of his time. I have never visited Columbus County and cannot speak to its attractiveness (or lack there of), but do not kid yourself that some clever Chamber of Commerce Executive just came up with the idea of creating a golf mecca in the Sandhills.
