A Hole In One From Here In Fayetteville

Fayetteville, North Carolina and its surrounding areas are known for many great things, including a great golf history. With the season in full swing (literally) it’s interesting to know the historical background and some fun facts about golf in Fayetteville and its neighboring areas.

  • Classic golf course designers like Donald Ross, Willard Byrd and Ellis Maples first brought the game of golf to this region in the early 1900s. We can thank these architects for producing the challenging courses which make places like Pinehurst and Fayetteville a “must stop” along Interstate 95.
  • Professional golfers Ray and Marlene Floyd grew up in Fayetteville in the 1940s and 50s and perfected their skills here on hometown courses. Ray went on to win 22 PGA Tour events and his sister, Marlene, won three PGA Tour events.
  • Methodist College located in Fayetteville was accredited in 1999 as one of only 14 schools in the nation and the only Division III school that offers the PGA-sanctioned Professional Golf Management degree.
  • The city of Fayetteville is home to more than 20 golf courses totaling 360 holes and 19 miles of well-manicured fairways. Only 30 miles west of Fayetteville you can find the famous golfing resort of Pinehurst, which has hosted the U.S. Open three times (1999, 2005 and 2014) and is ranked as the number two golf course in the country.
