You will enjoy the diversity of Charlotte courses, not to mention the dozens of others less than an hour away.
Yeah, there are lots of other satellite areas around the QC for good golf. If you ever trek up to the Creekside/Cedarock/Barber/N. Asheboro area I'm down for a round. The Chapel Hill (UNC)/Durham (Valley Springs)/Raleigh area (Zebulon) is great, Pittsboro and Buckhorn are a good road trip, and the Fox Chase, Goose Landing, Oakboro trio will be an easy road trip for you, probably. Also the Hickory duo, then the mountains and all the privates in Western NC. Not to mention going south to the IDGC, etc.
