Golf Facilities

  • 18 hole course, par 72, designed by Donald Ross
A Pinehurst Pedigree The club dates back to 1925, when Leonard Tufts, president of Pinehurst Inc., and a group of affluent North Carolina businessmen, proposed the development of a private mountain community to reside during the summer months. Pinehurst had already become a popular winter enclave in the Sandhills, and Tufts envisioned a companion golf retreat with the perfect climate for his Yankee clientele, who were tiring of their long trip back north every summer. In 1926, Roaring Gap Club was formed, and Tufts served as the first president. In fact, brochures and press releases referred to Roaring Gap as “the Pinehurst of the Mountains”. Because Roaring Gap started as a joint venture with Pinehurst Inc., Tufts made sure that Donald Ross, his golf director in Pinehurst, was the hands-on architect from start to finish. After all, Ross already had made quite a name for himself outside Pinehurst by designing courses during the summers throughout the northeast. Until 1938, even Ross' assistants at Pinehurst, including Palmer Maples, interned as head professionals at Roaring Gap every summer. When recounting Roaring Gap's golf legacy, few clubs can claim such a distinguished start. Realizing this, the club has recently shown a greater sense of appreciation for their golf course and its architectural integrity. Naturally -- the club figured -- a layout so intimately tied to Ross and Pinehurst should be taken seriously three generations later. Today it is ranked 82 in the top 100 Classic Courses in America.
