doing otherwise would be like going to Las Vegas and playing Church Bingo cause it's not as intense as the strip
I totally respect this opinion, but not everyone feels completely that way.

Playing 2-3 rounds a day on nothing but championship caliber courses, that you're completely unfamiliar with, can really beat you down, especially if you're not that great a player. When I take a few days to check out the DG somewhere, sure I wanna play courses that I "just gotta tell my friends about," but I'm really glad I mixed in Sugaw, Eager Beaver, and Bailey. Don't get me wrong - I'm not claiming they're destination worthy courses, but they made for great 2nd or 3rd rounds on any given day. They were a nice change of pace and allowed me to enjoy my trip more than if I played the Big Boys exclusively, one right after another.

Some might say I'm wasting my time playing average courses... different strokes.
just my $0.02

fair 'nuff ... didn't squeeze Reedy into our trip. That's one thing about Charlotte: so many quality courses, in such close proximity. lucky bastards!

I gave poor Squirrel Lake (which our crew liked very much; and had just been recently opened) a nod.

I've played Hornet's Nest, Sugaw Creek and Nevin. I think Hornet's Nest was my favorite of the 3. All are good though.

Hornets had some really great Holes.....but playing over and around roads and a few of the typical woods holes dampened the experience for me.
I loved half that course but half of it I was wanting too much maybe based on all the hype?

Reedy is cool and all but really all it has going for it is just being really run. I think Scrapyard surpassed it as being really fun and very pretty.

The Scrapyard is my favorite course in the area, but you wouldn't be wrong voting for every poll option. Also, your poll left off Bradley and Rankin in Gastonia, Winthrop in Rock Hill, Stumpy in Mooresville, and a few more terrific courses in the area.
