Default Courses off I-77 South of Charleston

So we're headed To the USDGC and looking for a course to play on the way down. We're departing at 9pm so we'll be crossing Charleston around sunrise. Thus why I'm looking for recos south of the city. Any help?

I assume you mean Charleston, WV. Check the map browser here:
http://www.dgcoursereview.com/browse_map.php
Zoom in and double-click the map and see the courses appear!

It looks like a severe wasteland for DG for at least 200 miles past Charleston.
These are the closest, but are a little out of your way though (probably 70 miles to and from I-77): I have not played the Blacksburg (VA) area courses, but I've heard good things about those 2.

Further south in NC, not far off I-77 are 4 awesome courses:
Yadkinville.....in Yadkinville
Brackett's Bluff in Davidson, NC (private, but they are fine with visitors - call ahead if possible)
Hornet's Nest & Renaissance in Charlotte, NC (Sugaw Creek is also right of I-77 and is good, but not great)

So if we go with the NC courses(we're playing Renny on Monday), which should we go with? Which do you think is the best of the three remaining courses?

To tell you the truth, both Brackett's and Hornet's Nest are great.....and quite different from eachother. Read the reviews and look at the pictures (and fly-by video for Hornet's Nest) and make up your mind based on what you and your party like. You will not be disappointed either way. Or.....play both!

Hornet's Nest is really 2 courses in 1. The Web layout overlays the Original layout - shares some combination of tees, fairways and baskets and has some of its own unique holes. So you can play 2 rounds for two completely different experiences.

Brackett's Bluff is private and has that vibe going for it.

No problem. To maximize your playing pleasure make sure you print out maps of Hornet's Nest and Renaissance. If you do not do that you will most likely get frustrated.

I think Renny Original has changed (holes 7, 11 & 12 are replaced and no longer used), and the map has not been updated.

Enjoy! I'm jealous

Something to keep in mind... Brackett's Bluff now requires a membership. I've heard it's $25. Or you can get in with someone who is already a member.

Apparently they had to institute the membership as a means of keeping out the riff raff that was coming in and tearing up the place and leaving trash behind. People can be so disrespectful and outright unappreciative of others generosity like the Brackett's.

Seconded.

You may even want to try and wrangle up a local. I wouldn't try to play the web layout without a local or good map.
