Steeped in history, there are several locations in both North and South Carolina that have earned Historic Hotels of America recognition. To our ears that means for decades, sometimes over 100 years, these venues have been holding successful meetings large and small. The owners have carefully preserved their property to continue those traditions for years to come.
Weighing in at the Gold level is the Pinehurst Resort. Although the town of Pinehurst is now considered “The Home of American Golf” you may be surprised that James Walker Tufts never even heard of golf when he visualized and founded the Village and built the Holly Inn in 1895. He wanted to create a retreat from the northern winters and the ills of industrialization with an emphasis on healthy outdoor activities and plenty of rest and relaxation. You can read more about how the dairy cows brought about the popularity of this new sport.
Today the resort includes the original Holly Inn, the Carolina Inn, The Manor, Villas, tennis and croquet courts, pool, spa and, of course, some of the most famous golf courses in the country. Its storied history includes decade after decade of famous visitors, golf legends and incredible sights and sounds. Sound like a great place for your meeting?
