Roll Call: North Carolina

Hey man, I’m pretty close to you in Jacksonville. Let me know if you are ever in Onslow county and we can catch a round together!

@franklinorr That would be awesome man. I live about 30 minutes from Rock Creek but I have never played it and always wanted to but most of the guys I play with either stay and play around Wilmington or up around Goldsboro. Thanks!

Hey Charlotte area as well and frequent those tracks often. My story is very similar to yours. @RonniepND

Just checking in here… I’m just getting started with learning how to play the game. Charlotte area.
Actually live in SC near Ballantyne and did the New2Golf School a couple of weekends ago at the Golf Academy. Have been to the range a couple of times since then and will dip my toe into Par 3 type things soon. As a side note, if anyone has some older clubs they’d like to part with, I’m all ears.

Welcome to the refuge fellow CLT golf sickos! You should #GetInvolved in our Carolinas WhatsApp threads and the Carolinas chapter of the RACDG (cc @Hitchings21 and el presidente @Double_Bogey_Dave )

I’d also recommend checking out and strongly considering attending the upcoming meetups we have in the Carolinas.

Have you played eagle chase? Played front 9 while passing thru on travels, was a very hilly fun course. Check it out.

Yeah that’s actually my “home” course.

Which hole is 7? The course did not do much for me

Sharing because I know some of ya’ll sickos would enjoy this - - - $25 round on the Cradle. It’s a cool fundraiser for the local First Tee.

*sidenote: not my favorite Cradle fundraiser, which was when they let people bring their dogs a few years back to benefit the humane society.

7 is the hole where you try to lay up on the left side, and the ball rolls all the way down onto the right side, leaving you with a shot over a hazard area. One of many terrible holes on that course (the dogleg left where you have to lay up and have about a 10 yard window to not be blocked out is another notable one).

I played it years ago and remembered it being good, this year it was the worst design I’ve played this side of Carolina Lakes.

thats awesome man

Or you could hit a good driver that funnels straight down and only have a 60 yard wedge shot :man_shrugging:t3:

New to the Refuge and live in Winston-Salem, NC. Been in the area for long enough where I have played most of the courses in the area although I have not played the Cardinal which seems to have come up a couple of times on here.

Seem to play Reynolds Park, Tanglewood, Salem-Glen, Meadowlands and Oak Valley the most. Enjoy going out to different places.
