I think French Creek, all golds, is a brutal course. The SSE on here indicates it's slightly easier than Iron Hill, but I never really felt that way. If you're a little bit off at iron hill you still have a chance. If you're a little bit off at French Creek you will be crying.

But he literally says in his post "looking for courses closer to Charlotte than Ohio".

I want a course that will beat me up, break me down and send me home crying. I want to film a round that I'd be embarrassed to upload to youtube.
Flyboy is close enough to Charlotte, especially if you get an opportunity to play the Viper layout. I played the regular Flyboy layout, but saw some of the Viper course along the way....holy cow, those looked like some extremely difficult holes.

If you travel that far north, keep driving on up to Charlevoix. Mt. McSauba will earn your respect. I have played many of the forementioned courses in WV, Black course, Seth Burton, Orange Crush, Whippin Post, Woodshed, and I believe that Mt. McSauba is every bit as tough, both mentally and physically. Doesn't have real high ratings because not many play it!

McSauba

I don't believe Iron Hill is near as tough as it used to be. We've spent the last 9 years tweaking this and that as well as cleaning up the first layer of rough

The problem is, if you build a course, that difficult, no one will want to play it.
I know firsthand with the supercourse at Sugaree, which has been an option for 5 years. Most folks just don't want to throw 800 feet though the dense woods...not Iron Hill low density wide fairways, but heavy density wall to wall trees.

Actually we don't have them at Sugaree or hardly any poison ivy, but I'm thinking about importing King Cobras to make the short course a little more difficult.
