I'd love to get down there for a few days of frolfin' fun. My only trip there was a quick course in Charlotte (RL Smith) on my way to one of our factories in SC.

However, the East Carolina Univ course is very similar to WI courses (at least that is what my buddy from WI that just visited and played it with me says), Patriot, & Cedarock are a couple of other "open" courses. The three I listed are almost completely open while Ashe and RP that Tim mentioned are "moderately wooded". There are tons of moderately wooded courses here too.
My buddy that visited always loves visiting at Christmas due to the good chance of having a 70 degree day playing in shorts and t-shirts (several mid-high 60's days too).
I am surprised that there would be a "deduction" for courses that are more wooded than others, thus making them more of a challenge to shoot. Where's the challenge in shooting a open course? I consider a open course without many obstacles to shoot around or over as more of a course just to hone up my throwing form and work with different discs. I'd like to see the pros throw on a course like Highland Park or The Canyons at Dell Park and keep those -35 to -40 scores. A little different out there when you go from a course where you can just rip it to one where you need be more accurate to avoid trees. Also, at Highland Park and Canyons there good elevation changes to go along with the woods plus some narrow driving lanes off the tees.
