North Carolina About North Carolina


Few states boast the rich golf history and geographical diversity of North Carolina. Golf legends Arnold Palmer (Wake Forest) and Davis Love III (UNC) honed their craft within the confines of the Tar Heel State, while architectural mastermind Donald Ross created one of America’s greatest golf courses (Pinehurst No. 2) in historic Pinehurst.

North Carolina has hosted a variety of professional golf events over the years including PGA Tour stops in Charlotte and Greensboro, various Mini-Tour events and prestigious USGA championships.

But the NC golf scene is much more than pro golf and the village of Pinehurst. The Sandhills region is one of America’s most storied and sought after golf destinations with dozens of championship-caliber public-access courses to choose from.
Cities such as Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh and Wilmington are also emerging as top-notch golf destinations and allow golfers to experience a broad spectrum of golf course designs ranging from tree-lined mountain courses to oceanside links layouts. Better yet, the state’s moderate climate allows for year-round play.

Without question, golf is big business in North Carolina. In fact, a recent study commissioned by the North Carolina Alliance for Golf and Golf 20/20 revealed that the golf industry contributes more than $5 billion annually to the state’s economy.

With hundreds of challenging courses from the coast to the major metropolitan areas to the mountains, North Carolina is a golf experience like no other. Tee it up in the Tarheel State today!
