Experience All That is New in Pinehurst, North Carolina

By: TLP's Partners

In 2024, there are so many reasons to visit the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, and Aberdeen area of North Carolina. Spring is about new beginnings, and marks the perfect time for plenty of new experiences in the Sandhills.  

Hello, Spring

On the first day of spring, March 19, the enormously popular Pinecone Pathways Program returns. Spend the day searching for unique glass pinecones produced by glassmakers at Starworks. For a five-week period ending on Earth Day on April 22, search Moore County trails for the cherished and prized pinecones. Register your find and have a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2024 U.S. Open in June. 

Destination Distillery 

The destination’s first distillery opens in March. The Brad Halling American Whiskey Ko. in Southern Pines is owned by Army veterans Brad and Jessica Halling. Their Sergeant’s Valor and Madam Colonel products will express gratitude for extraordinary service through premium spirits.  

New Brewery in Town 

In Carthage, the newest Southern Pines Brewing Company location is open and has transformed the old Tyson and Jones Buggy Factory into a two-story restaurant/bar. Aptly named The Buggy Factory, the facility will feature more than 50 taps, downstairs speakeasy, a world-class cocktail program with expert mixologist and Detroit-style pizza flights.

Golf Experiences 

This summer, the World Golf Hall of Fame returns to its original home in Pinehurst. Housed by the USGA, the museum will showcase an array of golf artifacts and displays.  

Hole on Pinehurst No. 10 golf course in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

For golfers, Pinehurst Resort’s newest 18-hole golf course opens on April 3. The Tom Doak designed Pinehurst No. 10 course features native wiregrass, sweeping landscape and rolling hills. This is a golf experience unlike any other inside the Home of American Golf. For golf on a smaller scale, the new Wee Pines at Olmsted Village features a pair of 18-hole miniature golf courses which can be enjoyed by all ages. One of the courses is also handicap-accessible. If its raining, check out the new Double Eagle Indoor Range. Great for families and groups, enjoy a restaurant and bar, along with golf simulators where you can play almost any course in the world virtually like Pinehurst No. 2, home of the 2024 U.S. Open in June. 

Plan your Visit

Experience all that is new, plus quaint downtown shopping, impeccable local dining and an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities in the Pinehurst area. The list is as tall as the classic longleaf pines synonymous with the Sandhills region of North Carolina.
