The area’s climate, which is milder and drier year-round than the surrounding areas, is a result of its unique combination of sandy soil, its elevation (600 feet above sea level at some points) and its protection by the Appalachian Mountains. ​Although Pinehurst offers a four-season climate, the mild winters generally allow for relaxing rounds of golf throughout most of the winter season. The annual snowfall averages about 4 inches per year and the snow usually lasts less than two to three days. 

The following table provides an indication of the weather encountered in the Pinehurst area. In comparing Pinehurst’s climate with that found in several Northern cities, you will find that the number of days above 90F during the summer months are similar to those found in northern cities like Philadelphia and Chicago while the winter months average about 10-15 F warmer.

Welcome to Pinehurst
Welcome to Pinehurst, North Carolina, site of the 1999, 2005, US Open Golf Championship, The Tour Championship 1991, 1992, the US Senior Open Championship 1994, the US Women’s Amateur 1989, the 1962 and 2008 Men’s US Amateur Championship, Ryder Cup Matches 1951, the 1936 PGA Championship, and the 2014 Men’s and Women’s back-to-back US Open Golf Championship . 

Those of us who take an interest in the history of golf understand Pinehurst’s storied history that began over 100 years ago when James Walker Tuft convinced Donald Ross of Dornoch, Scotland to take over and develop the golf operations in Pinehurst. Ross stayed at Pinehurst until 1948, and in that time came to be recognized as one of the founding fathers of American golf, designing over 400 other courses nationwide.Tufts also made a great decision when he contracted with Frederick Law Olmsted, America's foremost landscape architect, to construct a New England -type atmosphere that today encompasses the Pinehurst Village. Olmsted’s credits also include Central Park, the U.S. Capitol grounds, and Biltmore House. He constructed the Pinehurst Village around an oval green with winding roads, which remain essentially unchanged in concept today.

​As the saying goes, every day is “A beautiful day in Pinehurst” and I hope you have a great time during your visit. If I can be of any assistance during your visit, please do not hesitate to call or email me at gopinehurst@gmail.com . In addition to outstanding Real Estate services, I offer customized tours to acquaint you with golf communities or equestrian areas of interest, even on short notice if possible.
