New Highway Signs Recognize Moore County as Home of American Golf

New welcome signs now grace the north and south entrances to Moore County along U.S. 1, acknowledging the county as “The Home of American Golf.”

The signs continue to read “Welcome to Moore County,” but with the addition of “The Home of American Golf.” That phrase is the official and trademarked description for the destination as marketed by the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).

“Thank you to Sen. Tom McInnis who serves on the state transportation committee and Pat Molamphy from the (state Department of Transportation) board for fulfilling our sign request,” said Phil Werz, president and CEO of the CVB, in a statement.

“Golf defines the destination for residents and for visitors from around the world, and with the addition of Golf House Pinehurst, the World Golf Hall of Fame, five future U.S. Opens and other USGA championships scheduled here through 2047, this only reinforces our claim as the home of American golf.”

A secondary sign below the main one still recognizes Moore County as the home of “U.S. Open Golf Championships.”

Pinehurst Resort will host the 2024 U.S. Open between June 13 and 16 at Pinehurst No. 2. Additional U.S. Open championships are scheduled in 2029, 2035, 2041 and 2047.

The destination is home to nearly 40 golf courses within a 15-mile radius, and 16 of them are currently ranked among the Top 100 in the state by the North Carolina Golf Panel.
