Mention golf and North Carolina in the same breath and Pinehurst comes to mind. Since 1895 with the construction of Pinehurst Resort, the sandhill towns of Pinehurst and Southern Pines have been synonymous with golf, and playing any of the area’s famed courses remains every golfer's dream.
Bordering Southern Pines to the east is the massive Fort Bragg Military Reservation and the city of Fayetteville. Settled in 1739 by Scottish Highlanders, the military presence here goes back to before the Revolutionary War. In 1865, the Federal Arsenal was a prime target of General Sherman when he seized the city on his southern march. Today you can visit several military museums, including the Airborne and Special Operations Museum and even go on base to view a “jump.”
So pack the golf clubs, your hiking shoes and the camera, but leave room for all the beautiful pottery and Native American crafts you’ll be bringing home. The Sandhills region is sure to be a favorite place to return to again and again.
