Pinehurst Resort was originally established in 1895 by James Walker Tufts as a health retreat. The towering pines and mild southern breezes were thought to have medicinal effects. The firm of Frederick Law Olmstead, the landscape designer acclaimed for creating New York City's Central Park, prepared the physical plan for Pinehurst.
Pinehurst offers three historic hotels, as well as condominiums and villas, all within walking distance of one another and each located within the charming Village of Pinehurst. Complimentary resort transportation is offered from all accommodations to golf and other resort amenities.
• The Carolina (or the Carolina Hotel) opened in 1901 and was soon dubbed the “Queen of the South.” This signature hotel has 230 guest rooms including suites.The Carolina is on the National Register of Historic Places.
• The Holly (or the Holly Inn) was Pinehurst’s first hotel and is located in the heart of The Village. The Four Diamond Holly features 82 guest rooms and suites each as unique as the hotel itself.
