People talk about making history all the time. More often than not, it's nothing more than hyperbole. But this is different. Really different. Never before has one golf course hosted both the US Open Golf Championship and the US Open Women's Golf Championship in the same year.

That all changes this year. After a thoughtful and thorough renovation by renowned golfer (and gentleman) Ben Crenshaw, Pinehurst #2 will see play from the world's best men golfers during the week of June 9 - 15, and from the world's best women golfers the very next week—June 17 - 22.

Needless to say there has been a ton of excellent coverage on the course, the people and the place of Pinehurst (southern Moore County) North Carolina. Please find several links to articles below. And check back, even though it will be tough to keep up, we'll keep adding links to new stories as often as possible!
