In rough order of preference:

Fox Chase
Ashe Co.
Castle Hayne
Buckhorn
Cedarock (and Wellspring) hint: play the "figure 8"
Zebulon
Valley Springs
Highland Hills
UNC
Barnet
Yadkin Co
Lake's Edge
Glenburnie
Glenn C Hilton
Creekside
Johnson St

Pretty much any private you can get on is worth playing. Wild Pine or whatever it's called now was looking really good but I haven't played it since it was a rough 9'er

I don't have a broad knowledge of N.C. courses, but Ashe County and Sugaree have to be among the top. They'd be among the top, anywhere. They don't even need the "outside of Charlotte area" qualifier.

Hey Opti, if you're coming to NC, you can now bring the disc to swap for the one I mailed up your way several months ago.

In order of preference, Sugaree, Fox Chase and High Country are my votes for best to play.

Is Stumpy Creek considered a Charlotte course? I have heard good things about that course.

Played Fox Chase last week for the first time. Pretty fun course. My only negative about it is that it doesn't drain well in some places.

It's not a CDGC run course, so technically, it's not a Charlotte course. That's why it wasn't part of the 2012 Worlds. In all practicality,though, if you live on the north side of town, it's closer than Winget or Elon. That's also why it gets lost in the shuffle in terms of great courses in the Charlotte area.

I played this Wednesday. The front nine has some great lines and then the back has some distance, water and tighter lines.

Only bad thing about Lake's Edge is 2 holes(14 & 15). It seems like they put in the course and realized that they were 2 holes short and crammed those two in.

Best courses in Eastern NC (since you are going to be there)
Castle Hayne
Glenburnie in New Bern (PDGA event there this weekend, so sure to be in top shape - IMHO, this is the most underated course in NC).
Barnet Park in Kinston
West Meadowbrook in Greenville

Zebulon is a great course and is on the eastern tip of the central part of the state.

Zebulon is a great course and is on the edge of civilization.
you can say it. I grew up in eastern NC we know we're in the sticks.

Opti you're going to be in Jacksonville? yeah what MTL said is your best bet. J'ville is out there but it's right smack in the middle of the courses listed.

How long you gonna be in town?

If you come through Boone area to play Ashe Co or Sugaree, I can take you out to Black Jack. (Private course in Valle Crucis)

22 holes, some of the most magnificent views of the Blue Ridge Mtns.

It is a great course, equal to the above mentioned two.
