In less than one month, Pinehurst Resort will play host to the back-to-back US Open Golf Championship and the US Open Women's Golf Championship. For those less familiar with the history of Pinehurst No. 2, it was completed by the famed and influential course designer Donald Ross in 1907. Of the 400 or so golf courses Ross designed in his lifetime, it is said that No. 2 at Pinehurst was always his favorite. He continued to perfect the course (widely considered his masterpiece) for the next 41 years until his death in 1948.

Pinehurst No. 2 has hosted two previous U.S. Opens, in 1999 and in 2005. The course (and its 2011 restoration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw) will once again be the focus of the golf world in four week's time, with the men and women playing back-to-back.

Videos and descriptions of all 18 holes at Pinehurst No. 2 are available on the USGA's interactive website. Check out this stunning hole-by-hole guide!
