The village of Pinehurst, with its historic inns, classic architecture, legendary golf courses, leisurely lifestyle and other outdoor activities, has a mythical healing power. The famous Scottish golf professional Tommy Armour said in 1935, “I’ve seen strangers, jaded and dull, come to Pinehurst and after a few days be changed into entirely delightful fellows.” The charm and character of the cradle of American golf hold true today as Pinehurst remains a place where golf and good times reign supreme.
From the Inside Flap
Audrey Moriarty is the guardian of all that is the history of Pinehurst. Her work at the Tufts Archives has been invaluable to many Donald Ross courses throughout the country. Her insights on the history of the American “St. Andrews” are concise and fascinating. She takes you back to a time long forgotten and moves you to the Pinehurst of today. – Michael J. Fay, Founder and Executive Director of the Donald Ross Society
