Yeah, it gets expensive once the season starts, but early March rates are pretty cheap. I wish my partners would get back on their feet, because we were playing at least one course a month down there and having a blast last year, although last year's course choices weren't my favorites because one was short on money.
If I can find someone to go down there with me, I'd play down there quite a bit more, it's only 1.5 hrs from the house. I did get to play World Tour twice this year and Thistle twice, along with Aberdeen, Wild Wing, Waterway Hills, Grande Dunes and Man O' War. I also played Keith Hills and some crappy track Sandy Ridge a couple times which are north of here. The rest I played here locally and just down the road in Southern Pines/Pinehurst.
You can't beat the January locals rates. I played Heritage Club this week. I paid $29!! (with my Legends loyalty card). And that included 2 draft beers (12oz Magic Hat #9) and anything off the lunch menu (Reuben Sandwich). Deal of the decade in MB.
