More Than Golf: 5 Fit Activities to Pursue at Pinehurst

Planning a trip to the U.S. Open? Don't limit your itinerary to the golf course.

Tour the region on horseback

You can’t help but notice the number of equestrian farms on your ride from the airport into Pinehurst. McLendon Hills is just 20 minutes away from the resort, while Foxtrack Training Center, known more for its jumping trials, is a town over in Southern Pines. Patrol the 25 acres at McLendon, galloping over streams, Carolina hillsides, and grassy fields. Do a trail ride through the woods or take a ring lesson for just $50. If you get good enough, they might let you race at Pinehurst’s historic racing track. On second thought, probably not.
