Default CA to NC - Which way to go?

OK... So I am moving from CA to NC in June. What I need from yall is help finding the absolute best courses to play along the way. I think I am going to take I-40. Because I need to make the drive in less than 1 week, I am down to play two top courses a day (and visit micro-breweries too!).

Any info you can provide would be awesome. Guides and places to crash would be greatly appreciated too!
Thanks,
DSCJNKY

Ha, I am thinking about making this move too. Still just thinking about it, I need to figure out the job thing first. My thoughts at this point were going to be either going north and hitting Michigan and then coming down through Ohio and PA. Or you can go south and hit up Texas. 40 misses both really, even though 40 does go through Texas.

I would reccomend hitting up Brent Baca in Albuquerque, NM to start. Hope it isn't windy.

Other than that didn't they just play an NT event in Oklahoma?

That is all I got for you.

Where are you going to be living in NC? If you are in the Winston Salem or Greensboro area, I'd love to show you around the local courses when you get here.

I-40 will take you through Nashville, where there are a number of good courses. I recommend Cedar Hill. Knoxville's Victor Ashe is a pretty good stop as well.

Your first stop in NC is Asheville. Richmond Hill is getting great reviews, though I haven't played it.

You didn't mention what alternative routes you're considering (i.e.; I-70, which is a bit more scenic, or I-10/I-20.

I-80 does not run through Kentucky. However, if you DO wind up coming through Michigan and Ohio, I'd be more than happy to be your guide on any of the Toledo, OH or Ann Arbor, MI area courses. Hudson Mills would be cool to hit again.

I'd go east, not west. Its shorter and has less water hazards.
What might help/dictate where you play, is how far you can go in a day and where you want/feel safe to stop. I dont know much bout those widwest courses, but Im jealous you'll be playing the NC courses, which are great.
