  1. Rented a house on 18 green at PN a few years back. Location was awesome and it is a short walk to the breakfast buffet that was amazing.
  2. Check out White Horse Transportation. I use them locally in Raleigh and are always happy with service.
  3. I just got back from HHI as we go for a week every year. We stay at the Sea Pines resort as they have 3 courses( 2 Pete Dye and 1 Davis Love), great beaches, and good options for eating. Book thru them and you can get multi round discounts when you book at the same time.
  4. Another vote for Cape Fear National. Really fun course with great scenery.
  5. I played Stono Ferry and Dunes West while down there watching the PGA. Enjoyed Dunes West over SF.
  6. Another vote for Bryan Park. Great scenery as the lake borders a bunch of the holes. I drive from Raleigh to play it every year.
  7. I agree. Maybe throw in TR or Dormie(before 5/31) in the mix and skip the Pinehurst ones.
  8. Just to add, I had this done about an hour ago and it only cost me $10 plus the cost of a new grip(which was in need of changing already).
  9. I had a similar situation. I bought a SIM2 and moved my AD-BB7x shaft over to it. It plays at 44.5" and with the stock head, It was at D0. I had a local club builder add tungsten powder into the shaft and plug it and now it is at D2. Like you, I didn't want to put tape on it.
  10. As I have only 2 full rounds this year so far, I will add my best 9 and worst 9. They happened in the same round. Went 48-37(36-35 is par). Didn't have a par until the 8th hole. Made the turn and went Par, Birdie, Par, Eagle. Strange round.
  11. You would be hard pressed to find better public courses than those 3. You can't go wrong with any of them. Another fun option just north of Durham is https://umsteadpines.com/
  12. Watch for ants and snakes. They get pretty bad there.
  13. Harry Higgs was fun to watch in this vid. I think the Foreplay vids have gone way downhill since they partnered with TM. The ones with Riggs at Pinehurst were great and the one with Kisner was great as well. Too commercial now.
  14. I am wondering the same thing. I have the BB7x and just did a SIM2 fitting with the XC7x. I would rather not buy another $250 shaft if they will play similar. Anyone have thoughts on this?
  15. I live in Wake Forest and play Heritage and Hasentree often. You are correct that Heritage is semi private. It is a fun course to play and isn't very difficult. Tee times are not too hard to get as a non member. I can't speak to how hard it is to get a premium tee time being a member. Course is usually in really good shape. Practice areas are decent but nothing special. Hasentree course is fun to play. Fazio design. Practice facilities are really nice. Course is usually in really good shape. There are multiple levels of membership and the higher tier allows for earlier booking of tee times and there are folks that book the prime weekend morning times on a consistent basis. I have neighbors that left the club for that reason. They have an active social group and run fun activities throughout the year. Can't speak to Wakefield as I have only played it a few times.
  16. Didn't we start the tournament on a hole with the tee shot over water? That was a tough tee shot.
  17. Are you looking for something portable or can it stay up all the time? I have the NetReturn net that I use inside my garage and outside in the yard. I love it. https://www.thenetreturn.com/products/home-series-v2-golf-and-multi-sport-net
  18. I have played Shipyard the past 2 summers with my young kids as the course offers a family fun package with clubs included for the kids. I have only played 2 of the 3 9's. I would not play these courses outside of the family fun deal as they are in just so-so shape. I dont have any info on any of the others you have mentioned.
