Abstract:
In 1895 and 1896, retired Boston merchant James W. Tufts bought for $1.24 an acre the Moore County land that would become Pinehurst. He did not intend it for golf, but rather as a warm climate resort for retirees and for those in ill health. Although he added a golf course, he died in 1902, never knowing that Pinehurst would become one of the country's golf meccas.

A new golf course broke into the top 10. Tom Fazio designed both courses in 1996. Pinehurst No. 8 made the list in 1998, and its rival, Forest Creek Golf Club, replaced it on the list in 1999.
