PINEHURST – The United States Golf Association (USGA) plans to create a multi-building research and testing campus in the Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced today. The facilities will feature a research and testing center for golf equipment as well as a combined museum and visitor center in Pinehurst, along with offices for the USGA’s Foundation and the organization’s turfgrass agronomy and management section. This is another chapter in North Carolina’s long and illustrious golf history.
Helen Probst Mills, Democratic Nominee for State Senate District 25, has released this statement following today’s announcement:
“I am very supportive of any initiative that brings jobs and financial gain to Anson, Moore, Richmond and Scotland counties and I commend Governor Cooper for his work to secure this deal. The benefits of bringing USGA to Pinehurst are extraordinary and far-reaching. As a Trustee of Sandhills Community College and longtime resident of the Village of Pinehurst, I am looking forward to the community gaining access to new training opportunities and well paying careers in the golf industry.”
