VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, N.C. February 15, 2009 How much golf can be played in a day? How about a full year? Pinehurst, a North Carolina golf resort is challenging avid golfers to answer both - with an unprecedented grand prize to prove it.

From now through May 31, golfers from around the globe can enter the golf resort's spring sweepstakes to win unlimited golf at Pinehurst golf courses for a year.

Valid from June 1, 2009 to May 30, 2010, the prize also includes exclusive benefits when staying at Pinehurst, visiting the spa and enjoying its many amenities.

The sweepstakes celebrates the launch of Pinehurst's spring Unlimited Golf Package, in which golfers are automatically upgraded to unlimited golf at normal one-round-per-day rates from March 8 through May 30. The $515 per person, per night golf vacation package rates include unlimited greens fees (No. 2 at an additional charge), cart and practice facility usage, plus accommodations, the best breakfast in golf and a la carte dinner.
