But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years. Pinehurst is America’s first golf resort.

Since 1898, Pinehurst has hosted more championships than any other club in the country and they look forward to being the site of the 2024 U.S. Open Championship.

017 – Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa (feat. Brad Scott)

On a 415-acre tract of swampland in northeast Florida, the history of golf would be altered forever. On that site, ground was broken for what would become THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Opening in 1980, THE PLAYERS Stadium was built to challenge the pros like no other golf course had done before, while providing an unprecedented experience for spectators at the same time. Renowned architect Pete Dye began to scribble on a placemat drawing out the makings of a course. The rest is history.

013 – Sand Valley (feat. Steve Kurtz)

Located in the prehistoric, tumbling sand dunes of central Wisconsin, Sand Valley offers three unique golf experiences modeled after the Heathland golf courses of London. The first two courses, Sand Valley and The Sandbox are by Coore & Crenshaw, and a third course, Mammoth Dunes, is designed by David McLay Kidd. Sand Valley Resort is a dream golf destination that will deliver an experience you and buddies will never forget.
