US Open Wayfinding Site in Sanford

For the next few weeks, Sanford is home to one of only six painted wayfinding sites for the U.S. Open, which is happening in Pinehurst this month.

Funded by the N.C. Department of Transportation, our site is located at the Spring Lane exit on U.S. Hwy 1 S. It was painted this week and will be touched up until after the women's open in mid-June. After, the site will be mowed to remove the paint.

Other painted sites in North Carolina are located at:
  • 1-40 at Exit 291 on Cary Towne Blvd;
  • US 1 at Walnut Street in Raleigh;
  • I-73/74 at NC 211 in Candor;
  • 1-74/74 Rest Area in Randolph County; and
  • 1-73/74 and Hwy 64 in Asheboro
Only the Candor site features a putting green and white arrow. The rest have white arrows only.

See photos of the DOT creating the site on our Facebook page.
