The Walthour Moss Foundation
The Walthour-Moss Foundation was established upon the death of William O. "Pappy" Moss to ensure the preservation of the open land that he and Virginia Walthour Moss so treasured. The Foundation is located in the Sandhills of North Carolina, one mile from the town of Southern Pines. It occupies over 4000 acres, virtually unspoiled by progress and development.
The Foundation was originally known for its equestrian use, which continues to attract world-class riders and drivers to its sandy lanes and trails. However, the implementation of proper silva culture and ecological practices have made the Walthour-Moss Foundation a true environmental preserve. The almost extinct red-cockaded woodpecker is making a strong comeback on these protected lands. Their habitats are tagged for study and monitoring by naturalists. The land is also home to many other varieties of birds, deer, raccoons, opossums, red and grey foxes, and rare fox squirrels.
Today, the Village of Pinehurst is a scenic resort community with 17,100 residents (2018 estimate) and is the largest municipality in Moore County. The Village, including the Pinehurst Resort, is often referred to as the home of golf in the United States. It may be best known as home to Pinehurst Resort's world-renowned No. 2 golf course where unprecedented in history, both the U.S. Men’s Open and the U.S. Women’s Open Championships were played on Pinehurst No. 2 back-to-back in June 2014. No. 2 was also host to the 1999 and 2005 U.S. Men’s Open Championship, among many other golfing events and tournaments. The U.S. Men's Open will return to Pinehurst in 2024.
Pinehurst Resort, which includes the beautiful Carolina Hotel and luxurious Spa at Pinehurst, features golf courses No. 1 through 9. In 1996, the Village of Pinehurst and Pinehurst Resort was given National Landmark status for their significant role in U.S. golf history. This is the only golf-related designation of its kind in the United States. But there is a lot more to Pinehurst than just golf!
The heart of the Village is a unique array of shops and bistros that offers something for everyone. Residents and visitors alike notice and appreciate the special ambiance and natural beauty that is Pinehurst.
