Delta has discontinued service into Pinehurst/Southern Pines.   Your flight options are now Greensboro, Raleigh, Fayetteville or maybe even  Charlotte.   Greensboro and Ralegh are both circa 1 hour 15 minute drives.  Fayetteville is a much smaller airport, with fewer connections, but it is a 35-45 minute drive.   Charlotte is a 2.5 hour drive and not a very pleasant one.  You can find other options on the Pinehurst C&VB website.   Local van/car services are available to shuttle you to the area, rates are circa $90.00 each way plus recommended 20% tip.

If you stay at the Carolina the  resort van drivers will take you virtually anywhere locally;  to the drug store, liquor store, or restaurants.  Tips are always appreciated.

You can also rent a car at the airport, or hire a car service during your stay.    A very unique car service is "The British Cab Company" which operates a authentic British taxi, very cool.  Contact them at 910 528 1977, reservations suggested, but often available at short notice.
