You gotta go big when you're far from home, I would much rather be good and tired at the end of the day than skip some great courses.

That's much appreciated, berg. I'm sure Smokey would love to meet/drool all over your dog.

That's my motto for sure, but the amount of golf I can play in a day will be determined by how Smokey handles it. He is generally beat after a couple rounds. Looking at my calendar, I am thinking May 18-25 or 26. It should give me an extra day to fill in some gaps if the weather's too hot for him.

My day in charlotte looked like this: Elon x 2, Renny (some gold, mostly short), Eastway, Kilborne and Sugaw. The Second day I played Nevin and Hornets Nest.

Yup, I was tired. Maybe you're not planning enough courses/day.

The humidity & heat is always less when you are up in the mountains so Asheville will be pleasant. Everything else is downhill into the valley. Heat & humidity go up. I'd guess 10 degrees hotter & 10-15% more humidity when you go down into the flat lands lol.

Consider leaving Charlotte a half-day early and adding Ashe County to your return trip. It's in the mountains of N.C., not too terribly far from Sugaree. Terrific course, and it'll be 10-15 degrees cooler than Charlotte.

Previous forecast was right. May tends to be pretty warm, but not nearly as humid as mid-June and beyond.
