When Pinehurst No. 1
welcomed players in 1898, golf aficionados flocked from the North to
enjoy a winter round (early visitors included John D. Rockefeller
and President William McKinley). After English golf legend Harry
Vardon conducted a series of golf demonstrations at No. 1 in 1900,
Pinehurst was on its way to being on the world golf map. Dr. Leroy
Culver built the first nine holes and John Dunn Tucker added the
next nine, but it is clearly Donald Rossís touch that you feel on
Pinehurstís first golf course. Recalling his Scottish heritage,
Ross made liberal use of bunkers, both across the fairway and around
the green. Donít let the short 6,089-yard par 70 fool you; wild
drives or a sloppy short game can make for a long day. No. 1 was a
great start for Pinehurst, and itís a great start for you.
