PINEHURST, N.C.  – Pinehurst Resort is kicking off winter with the renovation of The Carolina Hotel’s guest rooms and lobby, as well as the creation of an expanded outdoor seating area with firepits situated outside the Ryder Cup Lounge.

The Carolina Hotel is one of the four guest accommodation spaces at the resort. Much of the project will be completed over the winter months and first half of 2022, while the guest room renovations will take place in three stages to ensure only a limited impact on guests, according to a media release. The remainder of the room renovations will be finished ahead of the PGA’s 2024 U.S. Open., which the resort is hosting.

“Pinehurst has enjoyed a period of significant enhancements, updates, and change over the last decade,” said Bob Dedman Jr., Pinehurst Resort CEO. “This is another opportunity for us to continue to improve on the overall experience.”

Planned upgrades to the guest rooms include brighter interiors, new fixtures, finishes, and custom-built furniture, as well as expanded bathrooms, improved lighting, and soundproofing.

The Carolina’s lobby floors, walls, ceilings, and lighting will be updated as will room corridors and the Carolina Coffee Shop.

“For more than a century, The Carolina has stood as a storied landmark in our area,” says Tom Pashley, president of Pinehurst Resort. “We will draw inspiration from its origins to incorporate into the design of the interior spaces of this grand hotel. It’s important to us that The Carolina serve the needs of today’s guest, but also that its original charm can be felt at every turn.”

Rounding out the improvements is the addition of the Ryder Cup Terrace. Adjacent to the Ryder Cup Lounge, the Ryder Cup Terrace will feature firepits and soft seating, making it a setting to begin an evening with a pre-dinner cocktail or to wind down after a round of golf.
