What are the golf course clusters in NC?

Obviously there's Pinehurst/Southern Pines.

 

Also the RTP/triangle area, Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

 

The triad west of the RTP (Greensboro/W-S) and Asheville and Nags Head.

 

Charlotte?

 

What else am I missing?

Wilmington Area is awesome and you're not far from Myrtle Beach.

So

 

Pinehurst/SP - a more gentrified quieter smaller version of MB without the beach.

 

Triangle Area - decent courses, some university courses, spread out.

 

Nags Head - resort courses.

 

Triad - decent number of courses, good bang for the buck. 

 

Ashville - not many courses but nice granola crunchy area to visit.

 

Wilmington - most of the courses seem like they're private.  Do they let non members play?

Brunswick County, NC, just across the state border from Myrtle Beach SC must qualify as a "golf cluster". The Villages of Shallotte, Calabash etc have dozens of golf courses in a small geographic area: Rivers Edge, 27 holes at Carolina National, St James Plantation (4 courses), Leopards Chase, Tigers Eye, Panthers Run and Lions Paw, Oyster Bay, 3 courses at Sea Trail, 27 holes at Thistle, Farmstead, Crow Creek, Brunswick Plantation, Lockwood, Bald Head Island, 27 holes at Sandpiper, two courses at the Pearl...

The Sandhills area which includes the towns of Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Sanford, etc. Some of the courses are Pine Needles, Pinehurst, Tobacco Road and the Pit.

Ill second the Sandhills area. I have played Little River and FoxFire up there. I wrote reviews in my signature under the "Courses I have played" section.
