USGA to create campus at Pinehurst; No. 2 gets 4 more Opens
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The United States Golf Association will move its equipment testing center and some other offices to North Carolina as part of a $36 million investment within the iconic golfing village of Pinehurst.
The USGA made the announcement Wednesday. The association’s foundation and turfgrass management agency also will move from New Jersey to Pinehurst.
A visitor center and USGA satellite museum will be built in the village.
The USGA also announced that it has awarded four additional men’s U.S. Opens to the Pinehurst No. 2 course through 2047.
The association could receive over $21 million in government incentives as part of the relocation.
