The 2018 Richard E. Marriott Golf Invitational is being held Oct. 8 to Oct. 10 at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, N.C. A world-class facility, Pinehurst has a reverence for the game of golf that lives in the traditions, championships, and legends that have made it one of the most storied golf resorts in the world and a must-play for all golfers. This is your chance to play on the famous Pinehurst No. 2, host of the 2014 U.S. Open, as well as other top-rated courses, all while supporting the important work of the National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant Advocacy Fund.

The invitational is one of the restaurant industry’s most impor­tant and premier events. Individuals enjoy three days of world-class golf, two nights of hotel accommodations at Pinehurst Resort, networking events and meals with CEOs and senior-level executives from some of the most respected and successful multi-unit chain and independent restaurant compa­nies in our industry.


  • Pinehurst No. 2: Pinehurst No. 2 is the centerpiece of Pinehurst Resort and remains one of the world’s most celebrated golf courses. It has served as the site of more single golf championships than any course in America and, in 2014, hosted 14 days of championship play with back to back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in their history. No. 2 is best known for its crowned, undulating greens, which are some of the most complex and widely hailed in the world.


  • Pinehurst No. 4: Pinehurst No. 4 is being redesigned as part of a master plan to further restore the original character and spirit to the Pinehurst golf experience. The design and routing, which seeks to create a landscape similar to Pinehurst No. 2, will include exposed sand and native wire grass, wider fairways, and natural topography.


  • Pinehurst No. 8: Pinehurst No. 8 combines classic Donald Ross concepts with the whimsical snarls that have become Tom Fazio’s calling card. Fazio took full advantage of the 420 acres of rolling terrain and natural wetlands to fashion a course that’s visually enthralling and challenging yet fun to play.
