As a 5 handicap, I traded my AP2's for the AP1's last year and I have no regrets AT ALL!!!
Personally, I prefer hybrids over fairway woods. When it comes to course management, I find hybrids to be more versatile for my game. I feel more confident standing over a hybrid whether its off the tee, off the deck or out of the rough. The control, higher trajectory and forgiveness out weighs the little bit of distance of roll out I lose compared to fairway woods. Hybrids just make more since for the type of courses I play. Its way easier to hoist a hybrid high up and...
Driver- Titleist 913 D3 10.5 degree Hybrids- Titleist 910 17 and 21 degree Irons- 4-GW Titleist 2008 AP1's Wedges- Titleist Vokey SM4 54 and 58 degree Putter- Scotty Cameron Del Mar California
The Red Fox (West) and The Grey Fox (East) are both hard courses. The Red is the hardest but thats my favorite by a slight margin.
To be honest, Whispering Pines CC and Carolina Trace are very similar. Both have 2 courses and if I had to choose, I would give the advantage to Carolina Trace. The greens are way better at Carolina Trace, tiny but firm and fast. Both courses have decent layouts but I would rate them middle of the pack in terms of rankings in the Sandhills area. I would recommend Foxfire Golf Courses over those 2. They also have 2 course and both are awesome layouts! They have similar...
I played on the Golf Weekly AM Tour which is basically the same as the Golf Channel AM tour. We had a 16 tournament schedule for my region and it cost around $75 per tournament. The courses were all of great caliber with a few private courses on the list as well. Most courses were local for me around the Pinehurst, NC area but some were just over an hour drive. The tour was a flighted format (Championship flight 0-4 handicap, A flight 4.5-8 handicap, B flight 8.5-12...
Here are some articles for the other courses on your list. Pretty interesting reads on the history and layouts. Might help some of your buddies get to know what they are getting into haha!   http://golfclubatlas.com/courses-by-country/usa/pine-needles/ http://golfclubatlas.com/courses-by-country/usa/mid-pines/ http://golfclubatlas.com/courses-by-country/usa/tobacco-road-nc-usa/
Left-Golfer   Thought you might enjoy this article on one of my favorite Donald Ross Courses in the Pinehurst area. So many people overlook this course when they come play golf here. I grew up playing this track and still call it The Elks Club even though its now The Southern Pines Golf Club. Just my way of trying to convince you not to play Tobacco Road    http://golfclubatlas.com/courses-by-country/usa/southern-pines-golf-club-nc-usa/
I bought my 2008 Titlesit AP1's off ebay last year for $125 used (the older versions are just as good as the new ones). And I sold my new 914 AP2's (the ones the pro's use) to play these instead. I'm a 4 handicap and i will never go back to the AP2's or MB's ever again, its like cheating how easy to hit and work these irons. If you want solid irons for the next few years like you said, consider the AP1's or AP2's you wont be disappointed.
Give the Titleist AP1 irons a try bud.  Personally, I think they are one of the best irons ever made. Yea the newer models are nice! But i'm still playing the 2008 AP1's and i cant tell the difference other than looks. I have played the AP2's and MB's (similar to the Nike Pro Combos) which both are great if you are a perfect ball striker consistently. For your handicap i would recommend staying away from combo and blade style irons. Stick with something forgiving like the...
