Pinehurst Resort was featured in ABC News' travel story on five places to spend your 2012 tax refund. The resort made the list of international dream vacation destinations to splurge on using your extra dollars.
In 2014 Pinehurst hosts the U.S. Open, and four days later hosts the U.S. Women's Open. No course has ever hosted two U.S. majors within two weeks. The Chicago Tribune visited Pinehurst No. 2 and encourages readers to play the course before No. 2 is put under the worldwide spotlight and tee times get scarce.
