I’m located here in Wilmington, always down to play
Thanks man, already grabbed a (non-cancellable) round at #1 this morning. Appreciate the offer though!
Going to be near Nags Head Golf Links in early August, is the course worth the $135 price tag?
To expand on the short answer, it’s a neat course if desperate to get a round in and price is right. Go play Kilmarlic up the road, much better in my opinion. Will cost less most likely than NHGL
Friendly reminder to sign up for Matchplay. 64 players across N and S Carolina.
Hey! I am over in Spruce Pine in Mitchell County. Nice to see some more Mountain faces around here…too many flat landers
Yep, it’s nice up here. Fairways and greens are in good shape and it doesn’t get too hot.

I will in your state in a couple of weeks for a trip with my girlfriend, her friends, and their significant others, staying down in Carolina Beach. The Wilmington Muni episode of Tourist Sauce piqued my interest and after lobbying/convincing the girlfriend she’s letting us carve out a morning to go play it. Could someone please let me know where I could rent clubs down in the area? We’d need four total sets - two men’s, two women’s. Thanks in advance, guis.
@EConroy419 …@AirMailWedges may be about the only one that might could answer this…I do not believe the muni has rentals. I am not aware of any shops in the area that rent full sets either…I do hope you all get to play though.
It says on the munis website that they have rentals. Maybe give them a call tomorrow. I’d be surprised if they have two women’s sets, but maybe they have one that can be shared.
Just had one spot open up for the Hootenanny this Saturday in So Pines @ Hyland… if anyone wants to be a last minute add in let me know!
Also, we are holding our raffle to donate to Big Sky Bravery on Wednesday night @ 8pm. Will gladly ship any merch. $10 a ticket. See attached link to spreadsheet for details. Also reference the Hootenanny thread for pics of merch.
Planning a guys trip to Pinehurst in November
Any good value courses for a practice round between Charlotte and Pinehurst??
I can’t really speak for the Charlotte area but once you get out of Charlotte there really isn’t much. Tillery Tradition in on the way but it is nothing special and last I heard was actually in pretty rough shape.
Once you get closer to Pinehurst you will have many more options. For an inexpensive round I recommend 7 lakes or foxfire. Foxfire tee times can be snagged on many of the online discount sites like golfmoose.com or underpar.com
Buddy of mine, Jay HIll, just took over as pro at Tillery Tradition. Hopefully things turning in the right direction there. Pictures he has posted online show it looking good for whatever that is worth!
Monroe Golf Club is great, and the front is a Ross to boot.
Good to know. It has potential for sure.
Depending on your route, a couple good options a bit closer to Charlotte than Pinehurst are Eagle Chase and Red Bridge. Very much enjoyed Eagle Chase on my first drive out there recently, and from what I hear conditions are typically always good. And I like Red Bridge also, they lost the greens recently but apparently they’re almost back to normal.
deep springs reporting 4.5 inches of water last night and closed today…assuming I should nuke my tee time there tomorrow at 3 and not make the 1.5 hour drive down?
