Sounds good, I was hoping so. I'll let you know the exact date pretty soon here. Probably adding ONE more day yet.

Dayton local here, just saw this thread. Strongly agree with your plan for day 11, but be aware that Caesar Ford Campground no longer has 9 holes. Only 7 are playable IIRC, and they're nothing to write home about. I hosted a glow round there, and the rough is nasty and eats discs.

Alright, Booked the rooms so it's official now. (except where I stay in IN on day 11)

Day 2: Driving to Morristown TN
Panther Creek- 18 holes

Looks like a fabulous trip!

Computer is on the fritz so I can’t look it up but - if you are anywhere near Mayflower Hills and have not played it yet, I would give that strong consideration. The course instantly made my favorites list.

I'll be nearish to Mayflower hills but that'll have to be a different trip. Lots of good looking options in VA so it shouldn't be too had to get that one on a different trip. Definitely on my radar though.

There are open aspects on some holes, but even those are challenging and not because of distance. Make no mistake it is a NC mountain, mostly wooded course. I have seen some truly monumental, huuuge air shots pulled off on that course by average but accurate golfers.

I don't know what course the "Jerm's nightmare hole" at the beginning of this clip was on, but it looks almost identical to one on the Ashe County course.... just as a frame of reference don't ya know.

After hole 1, most of the holes on the front 9 are mixes of open and woods -- throw across open but hit a windowinto the woods, or try to get out of tight woods into the open. With a few parks-style holes with individual trees as obstacles. The back 9 is more brutally wooded (on DGCR, you have to go to the 2nd set of photos to see it).

I believe I can hit 50 trees in a single round there, and find myself with bad lies behind 30 more.
