Near I-85 in South Carolina

I'll be passing through on Friday and Sunday and looking for the best option based on the following characteristics:
1. Ease/speed of access from interstate.
2. Quality of course.

Options south of Greensboro in NC may work as well.

Theres a bunch right off the highway in NE Charlotte, Eastway is 1.5 miles off exit 41, R.L Smith is a great park right off 85 on the West side, 1 mile off exit 32.

Tyger River is probably your best bet in S.C. It's a brand-new course with two very distinct halves---the front 9 is short, technical, semi-wooded; the back 9 is twice as long, mostly open, but with some cool holes. Should be pretty easy access from I-85, somewhere between Greenville & Spartanburg.

Shoally Creek (Va-Du-Mar), north of Spartanburg, is a fine course, too, and access to it is pretty easy as well. Front 9 is hilly with some steep elevation; back 9 is a bit more open (but with O.B. creeks and runoff ponds).

The two best courses in SC that are quick access from I-85 are Central (10 miles) and Shoally Creek (3 miles). Tyger River (3 miles) is also quick access and is pretty good (but way overrated on this site at 4.25 stars). Shoally is criminally underrated. It's a great course and is a strong candidate for top 5 in the state.

Ah, I forgot about Central. Amazing, since I'm due to play it, for the first time, at the tournament in 10 days. It comes highly recommended by people I trust.

Stoney Hill is only 2 hours off I-85, less with a good radar detector, by the way.

And R.L. Smith is *much* better than Eastway. In my opinion, and that of DGCR (4.14 vs 3.47).

Nevin is only 3.8 miles (mostly interstate) off of I-85.

I want to have time to do your course justice when I make it there. We are traveling this weekend for the Georgia Team Invitational and I'm just looking for something to break up the driving a bit. If we make the finals we won't be playing anywhere else on Sunday either way.

If you are looking for a quick play Trails DGC in Anderson has some tricky but fun holes through the woods, may only need to pull a driver out once or twice.

If time isn't that big of a factor however I'd have to agree about Shoally Creek, but RL is a step above since the tennis courts changed several really excellent holes at Shollay. Central will take much longer than the others to get to from I85 and longer to play due to elevation and transitions between holes.
