A Map of Pinehurst and Southern Pines in the Sandhills of North Carolina.
1933 (dated) 19.5 x 26 in (49.53 x 66.04 cm)
Brimming with charm, this is a previously unrecorded 1933 Ethel B. Fowler pictorial map of Pinehurst and Southern Pines, North Carolina. The map depicts the region from Pinehurst to Southern Pines and from the Moore County Hospital to the outskirts of Aberdeen. Pinehurst, North Carolina is home to Pinehurst Resort, a historic golf resort founded in 1895 by the Boston soda fountain magnate James Walker Tufts. Four of Pinehurst's courses are labeled, including the famous Pinehurst No. 2. Country clubs, several polo fields, and an archery golf course are also illustrated. Southern Pines, a winter health resort founded for Northerners, appears as well. Southern Pines bears the dubious distinction of having been a sundown town as of 1898. It is unclear when this disgusting policy was ended.
Pinehurst, Pinehurst Resort, and Golf Pinehurst Resort, a historic golf resort, was founded in 1895 by the Boston soda fountain magnate James Walker Tufts. The celebrated course Pinehurst No. 2 was opened in 1907 and was declared to be 'the fairest test of championship golf I have ever designed' by its architect Donald Ross. Pinehurst first hosted the PGA Championship in 1936, and subsequently has hosted the U.S. Open in 1999 and 2005. It notably hosted both the U.S. Open and the U.S. Women's Open in 2014 and will host the U.S. Open again in 2024.
