Concours d'Elegance

The Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance blends the history, heritage and grandeur from three of North Carolina’s proudest traditions – motorsports, golf and military – in a unique celebration of America’s passion for the automobile and for the benefit of the brave men and women who protect and provide the very freedom we enjoy as United States citizens.

In 1898, Congressman Alan T. Tredway, from Stockbridge, MA, advised Pinehurst founder James Tufts against adding another nine holes to the sole course at Pinehurst, because golf is just a “passing fancy.”  Against Tredway’s advice, Tufts made the changes, and history – and an American institution – was created.

It is the intention of those behind the Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance to continue the spirit of innovation and excellence established at Pinehurst more than 100 years ago with this event.  The team has a clear vision – one that is not just a passing fancy – but for Pinehurst to be home to a different type of American institution: a premier automotive and lifestyle experience.

Quotes

“We have something going for us in the Carolinas you just can’t find anywhere else in the United States. Part of our cultural fabric is wrapped around the automobile. Why do you think we have so much stock car racing in this area? It’s part of our heritage, part of our culture. People in our area are automobile focused – it may be race cars or show cars – but it is cars. The fans are going to come out to the Pinehurst Concours to see cars they’ve only seen in books, or maybe never heard of, or seen in social media. We’re built on a car culture here in the South that will make this inaugural Concours at Pinehurst Resort a tremendous success.”
- Paul Ianuario, Chief Judge of the 2013 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance
