North and South Open

North and South Open

The North and South Open was one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. It was played at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina, long the largest golf resort in the world, which also staged a series of other tournaments with the "North and South" moniker, some of which continue to this day. The event ran from 1902 to 1951 and was won by many of the leading golfers of that time, such as Walter Hagen and Ben Hogan. It was cancelled when the pros asked the patrician patriarch of Pinehurst, Richard Tufts, who was a great champion of amateurism, to increase the prize money in line with PGA Tour rates.
