Big-time tournaments aren't new to the Pinehurst Resort, the North and South Open was held there from 1902 to 1951 and it was one of the biggest tournaments in the United States.

The video above is what the place looked like when that tournament was taking place.

Dan Jenkins said we should judge Pinehurst more by some of those early tournaments than more recent ones.

Even Arnold Palmer said he regrets never winning a North and South Open at this course.

Interestingly, the first seven winners of the North and South Open were (surprise!) Donald Ross (who, you know, designed the course) and his brother Alec.
