  1. I am not from Atlanta, but have played a few rounds in the area. I believe a couple of your best options convenient to Duluth are Echelon or Bear’s Best.
  2. Pilgrims Run for sure. Tullymore and Eagle Eye are also nice, but both are about an hour drive from Grand Rapids.
  3. I'll put a plug in for Denver. I tagged along with my wife to a conference she attended a few years ago and spent my days playing golf. Granted I only played 3 days, but it was hard choosing which courses to play. There was plenty of quality public courses within a short drive to keep someone busy for a week. I played Riverdale, Ridge at Castle Pines, and Bear Dance and all were courses I would play again. It was middle of summer and 90 degrees, but the lack of humidity made it very comfortable. We stayed right downtown by the convention center and spent evenings eating and drinking craf
  4. When I lived in Blacksburg as a college student the group I played with mostly went to Hanging Rock to the north and Draper Valley to the south. Both were decent courses. A couple of my favorite restaurants (again college student perspective and mostly college town bar kind of food): The Cellar, Sharkeys, Pk,s, Souvlaki, and loved the roof at Boudreauxs when weather was nice (sadly I believe that has closed). Also highly recommend breakfast at Gillies and donuts from Carol Lee. It has been quite a few years since I graduated and a lot has changed and so someone with more recent knowledge
  5. Yes. I have not played it, but did research it a bit once. Sounded like it gets busy/crowded. But, definitely an option.
  6. I have not been to Grandover and can’t speak to that. My recommendation for weather in March would be to go south from CLT. Columbia, SC is likely to be 10 degrees warmer than Greensboro. The challenge is that there are not any really good stay and play options. If you were willing to drive for golf you could stay somewhere like the Ballantyne Hotel, which is just down the road from CLT on the south side. From there you could drive for golf. For example, Cobblestone is probably around a 1h drive (just north of Columbia). If you are not picky for golf there are a number of other public o
  7. Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech is not too far off I81 and is one of my favorites. Disclaimer that I am biased for that course as a VT alum.
  8. Olde Mill in Laurel Fork, Va is not too far away and a great course. I have only played in the summer so not sure what it would be like in March.
  9. Spent a couple of days there with my wife about 5 years ago. I was attending a conference that had been relocated there from Naples due to hurricane damage at the venue in Naples. We both liked it. Enjoyed walks through resort and surrounding area in the mornings and the super-pool in the afternoons. I played just the Palmer course as part of the conference. It was good, not great. Would definitely go back for the atmosphere at the resort, but ideally for golf would drive the 40 miles or so up the road to World Woods. We also preferred to go out to eat. Found some really great restau
  10. Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center has a number of different options for schools and individual lessons. I had a good experience with them.
  11. I'm a fan of Pinehurst Brewing Company
  12. About 10 years ago I attended a 3-day school at Grande Dunes, Myrtle Beach with Brad Redding. Really enjoyed it. There are several other schools in the Myrtle Beach area as well, but can't speak to personal experience.
