Try the 2018 Am Worlds layout at Hornet's & Nevin. Gives you a nice mixture of longs/shorts. Worlds layout marked on each tee pad with blue paint - there's a worlds layout map here on DGCR for each course as well.

Drive time from Nest to Renny can easily be 30 minutes or more depending on traffic. Nevin & Nest are near each other... Some of those round times may be pushing it as well. Does not leave much time to look for errand shots or account for a busy course.

Sounds like you really want to play Renaissance Gold as well. Be aware that it is not in it's best shape currently. The rough is ROUGH! Some bridges are not in great shape either. It's still playable - just keep it in the fairway. There are plans to revitalize the course in early 2019! It'll be better than ever!!

If you need to modify your Sat, schedule, drop the short course at Canaan & hit Renny Gold on Sat instead. You want to have good daylight for Renny. If you can get Renny in on Fri, drop the short course at Canaan & do Torma Town instead. Torma may not be the highest rated course in Charlotte but is one of the more fun ones for sure! Worth every bit of the 4 star rating.

So many other courses that are worth playing in the area... Angry Beaver, Bradford, Dry Creek, Scrapyard, Winthrop... just to name a few... We can recommend a whole new set of courses to play for your next trip down! Enjoy the Charlotte courses!
Thank you for the quality input! I will actually now plan on playing the Am Worlds layout for those courses. Sounds like it should be a good idea of the difficulty and fun factor of both courses.

Unfortunately, I will only have half the day on Sunday, so rather than play some of the other Charlotte courses that are solid, I want to try and get to Canaan. The short course is only included as a course to bag, and it shouldn't take more than 40 minutes to play.
