Roll Call: North Carolina

Asheville Muni is fun and inexpensive, but in rough shape now. Under new management though as of a couple weeks ago.

Black Mountain is great.

Skip Broadmoor. It’s a swamp.

I’ve heard and seen great things about Reems Creek, haven’t played there yet though.

Welcome @ldheal and you are right on your ideas of fall golf here! Lots of good rounds coming up!

Hopefully you got what you needed from the chat, and I can add you to the First Flight roost group. Let me know if you need anything else.

Going to be in Chapel Hill for UNC game Saturday - I remember being underwhelmed by GameDay atmosphere on Franklin the day of a UNC/duke basketball game a few years ago…is there much of a GameDay atmosphere for football? Any good tailgating areas I need to hit?

(Wife’s family are all heels, so while I’m not an alum I will be decked out in baby blue)

I’ll be there but I’ll be there legit right at kick off hopefully if not later. Our M/M got moved back to this weekend and I’ve had tickets for a while as well. 8 am shotgun, then hit the road for me

No, tailgating stinks at UNC. You’re either in a parking deck or in a Franklin Street restaurant.

Coming with full transparency - I’m an NC State guy but the tailgate scene is just meh because the stadium is on campus so you’re either in a parking deck, frat house or restaurant. Enjoy the cold beers and the temp looks like you’ll be avoiding some classic NC Tailgate Swamp Ass so thats cool

Yo guis:

One spot open at Longleaf with @Harper, YHM, and I on Saturday at 12:30.

Edit: obviously, all the CFB games I care about are on Saturday night. :laughing:

Did you lads win?

How many correct answers did @JamesHCard 's labradoodle Pluto provide?

On the ground in Chapel Hill - my expectations for GameDay atmosphere were low, but pleasantly surprised so far (if not slightly confused by the DJ on the steps of the library blaring soft rock over a common ground filled with vendor tents for replacement windows and mayonnaise…)

You’re in the epicenter but Wilmington Muni is 2.5 if you want to hit the coast and some good Raleigh options (will let others opine there). Ignore Charlotte
