— For the third time in four years, readers of Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine have voted Pinehurst Resort the top location in North America for a golf trip.

Pinehurst also topped the poll last year and in 2005. The resort is featured in the magazine's September/October edition.

“It’s a testament to Pinehurst’s consistent top-tier golf facilities, professionals and service that Travel + Leisure Golf’s discerning, well-traveled readers have once again ranked it the No. 1 golf resort in the country,” John Atwood, editor in chief of the magazine, said in a statement.

“We’re obviously proud of the entire Pinehurst team,” Pinehurst President Don Padgett said in the same statement. “With every event and championship, every guest and client, they do what’s right to create a memorable experience for all who visit here. This is their award, a result of hard work and dedication.”
