Plan a golf and spa trip to North Carolina and stay at the legendary Pinehurst Resort. If you live in Raleigh, the resort is 65 miles away and makes a great weekend getaway from the city.

The property offers a classic golf experience with eight great courses and a full service health spa. The famous No. 2 course has hosted many championships. The eight courses offer great variety in layout and difficulty levels. If you are up to the challenge, try the No. 2. or the No. 6 course.

Whether you are starting to learn to play or trying to polish your game, you can take lessons at the Advantage School. Instructors work with each student to improve their putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play, full swing and specialty shot skills. Open clinics cover other aspects of the game, including ball flight, rules and etiquette, uneven lies and physical fitness.

After a round, get pampered at the health club, a 31,000 square foot facility with 28 private treatment rooms, a lap pool, steam, sauna and a fitness center. Treatments incorporate native plants from the Sandhills region, including holly berry, magnolia, pine, sand and clay. Choose from body and skin treatments, massage therapy and hydrotherapy. For an ultimate indulgence, rent one of the six suites, designed for couples or small groups. Each suite has a relaxation lounge with access to two or three private treatment rooms, perfect for a couples' getaway.
