Abstract:
In June, 1999, the Pinehurst Golf Resort in the Sandhills became only the second southern golf course to host golf's most prestigious tournament, the U.S. Open. That 1999 Open was a tournament of excitement and drama. Payne Stewart sank a long putt on the 18th green to win. Weeks later, Stewart died in a plane crash. In 2005, the Open returns to Pinehurst. The six-year return engagement marks the quickest turnaround for American golf in sixty years, attesting to the popularity of the Pinehurst area. Tourists and tournament officials are expected to spend $150 million during championship week.

From those beginnings, golf courses in the state have grown to 565, including 384 that are open to the public. According to the National Golf Foundation, North Carolina ranks tenth nationally in the number of courses.
