I'm sure they'll have fun too, but Pine Needles is an exceptional golf course, I think you've made the better choice. I'm sure you have it all worked out, but let me know if you need food or drink recommendations.
I’ve been in exactly the same situation as you, and felt like a driving iron was better or something.
But, I learned somewhere that you can just hit lower off the face of your driver to do the same thing. Tee up lower and come in with a zero to slightly positive AoA to keep the spin down.
