Destination guide

Break out the check trousers and nine-irons

It's well over a century since Pinehurst held its first championship golf tournament, and since then it's become the kind of place that tee-ticklers refer to with hallowed reverence. But while it's most famous as a golf resort, there's much more to a Pinehurst vacation rental than 9-irons and caddies. It's an upscale place, with grand architecture and a historic central district that's perfect for strolling. Vacationers can dabble in horse racing and local history, smell the flowers in the botanic gardens, or go for full-on decadence with spa treatments, shopping, and posh dining.

Things to do

Giddy up for your Pinehurst vacation rental

If equestrian pursuits are your thing, why not check out the horses at Pinehurst Harness Track. Even if horses aren't really your bag, it might be worth dropping by anyway, since apart from racing, they've often got other events on, including car shows and sports games. To delve into local history (with an inevitable focus on the golf), why not have a snoop round the Tufts Archives at Given Memorial Library? Or for a bit of quiet time, you could make for the tranquility of the English-style Sandhills Horticultural Gardens or the Village Arboretum.


The number 1 place to practice your swing

If you've noticed that many of your fellow vacationers seem to be wearing garish trousers, polo shirts, and linen caps, it's because Pinehurst is home to the prestigious Pinehurst Golf Resort, boasting no less than 9 courses and all the associated glitz. When you're done on the green stuff, indulgence is usually the order of the day. There's fine dining aplenty to be had, or you can pamper yourself with spa treatments to soothe those aching shoulders. To get a real flavor of the place, try a walking tour of the historic village, or flex your credit card at the smart boutiques.


When it comes to the weather, it's anyone's guess really

With a Pinehurst vacation rental, the weather can swing around as much as the golf clubs, and you'll experience all 4 seasons. Summers are warm and humid without being unpleasantly so, but the high likelihood of afternoon thunderstorms also means that July is the wettest month in Pinehurst. For drier days, try April, and in fact spring in general is a great time to visit. Winters are short, and while it does freeze sometimes, it rarely gets very cold. One of the loveliest seasons round here is fall, where vacationers will find Pinehurst dishes up mild days and gorgeous colors.

Natural features

Not all the grass round here is on the green

A Pinehurst vacation rental puts you a couple of hours from the coast over to the east, while if you head a similar distance to the west, you'll start to get into the Blue Ridge Mountains. And if you're looking for nature a bit closer to the manicured greens of Pinehurst, you won't be disappointed. The 900-acre Weymouth Woods-Sandhills Nature preserve is only a quarter hour from the village, featuring natural history exhibits and guided walks, while a little further afield are Uwharrie National Forest and the backcountry delights of the Birkhead Mountains Wilderness area.
