@DaveP043 where do we go for good Carolina bbq?  Pik N Pig?

5 days. 8 rounds. You're going to need a lot of BBQ.

Haha, yeah.  We did 6 last year.  Decided to add one more this year.  Then this morning some people were chatting about what to do when we get there and things escalated quickly.  Before I knew it we had two tee times at Tot Hill Farm.  What can I say?  We've been snowed in for a while.

That's my choice, there's really not a great barbecue joint in town.  If you're driving down Route 1 and feeling peckish, you can stop in at Stubbs just south of Sanford.  

If you're going to the Pig on a Saturday, you might consider calling ahead to reserve some ribs. Ribs aren't traditionally Carolina-style, but they're pretty dang good.  And if you're hanging out at MidPines after playing, and your cholesterol is OK, think about trying the Buffalo chicken bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers.

Oh man!  I have some Stubb's BBQ sauce in my fridge. Good stuff.  Makes me feel peckish a dozen times during the summer. 😁

Pinehurst Brewing Company has some of the best wings I've ever had. Highly recommended. They're smoked wings and we got the Cheerwine BBQ sauce. Also their Brisket cheeseburger is another great option as well.

My next trip will be to Kentucky in 4 weeks for our 5th annual trip to Tanglewood Golf Course.

I think that Stubbs sauce is from Texas, different from the Stubbs and Sons in NC.  But I agree, its pretty good sauce.  @klineka has another great suggestion, Pinehurst Brewing has very good food.  Its not specifically Eastern Carolina BBQ, but its delicious.  The beers are pretty good too.

All this food talk is making me hungry for breakfast.

Thanks!  We're staying at Mid Pines Wednesday night so I appreciate the rec.

We were going to drive down Thursday and start the trip with Mid Pines in the afternoon and stay at Pinehurst that night.  Starting thinking about driving down the night before so I called Mid Pines to ask what it would cost to stay there for a night.  $247 for a stay and play with 1 night and 2 rounds.   We were already paying $165 to play Mid Pines.  $82 to add a night and a round at Pine Needles?  😍

We're staying at the Manor Inn from Thur to Sun, so that'll definitely be on our list.  We did go last year, when we also stayed at the Manor Inn.

Last nite I talked with our travel agent, first time in a year. Niece getting married this summer a short (4 hrs) drive to Kohler Wisconsin so we booked a flight and will enjoy being with family then we have three days to golf and relax at Kohler. Wonder if we can order all our plumbing fixtures while we are there.

Aloha,

I don't know about ordering, but if you spend an hour at the Plumbing Museum you'll want to renovate your kitchen and bathrooms.  It could end up being a VERY expensive trip.

If you want to go "off reservation" for a meal, I remember having a good Italian dinner at Lino on the waterfront in downtown Sheboygan.

I’m headed to Bandon Dunes next week. Playing the dunes, pacific dunes and sheep ranch. I’m excited! Weather looks favorable, fingers crossed!

Great choices but I'd rather stay home and play Lake Padden. 😁

Will check out the museum and Lino, Thanks! We are building a new home, this week I rented a mini ex and am digging the footings and placing the forms, next week the rebar comes in, hopefully we pour in a few weeks. So we are looking for a whole home plumbing purchase.

I am looking forward to a golf trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There are a number of beautiful courses to play. Have played there several times before.

    • While not as exciting as doing it on a par 72 course, finally did break 80 yesterday - 78/Par 70. It was a solo round so can't post. It's my first ever no-sixes round but since I can't post the score I won't ask for credit yet.  Also first ever round with no penalties! Disclaimer - our course is fairly flat and easy. But it has a butt load of OBs. You do have to hit a fairly wild tee shot on most of them to actually land it but only three holes do not have an OB lurking. So it's kinda an accomplishment all of it's own for me. Heh heh.  Driver has been friendly, irons continue to be reliable. Putter acting like a diva but I think I've got her number.  My work since the GEARS visit is actually sticking it seems..!! I am still hitting plenty of garden variety shitty shots but am playing some good golf lately and terribly happy at how the things are shaping up. 
    • Just to look at the good things. It's good to find the positives.  1. Backswing length, much better.  2. Overall how the body is turning is better. It's probably the best it looks right now.  Thoughts on what I need to work on. 1) Keeping the right elbow from collapsing so much in the backswing. Might be time to invest in some swimming floatation devices 😉. It might be easier for me to get the angle out of my right elbow if I had less angle there to begin with. 
    • My hats off. Putting stats like that on any of them PH greens is fantastic. Well done!
    • A young story and an old story!  Yesterday I played Pinehurst #6. A foursome was scheduled but only two of us showed up. I knew one person and the other was a father and daughter. Well only the daughter showed and off we went.  So.  I was 50 years older than her, she is 17 and a very good golfer. She’s off to Norte Dame on a golf scholarship next year after she completes high school. She’s a +2 HDCP. So off we go, she’s playing a hybrid set of tees I’m playing White tees. She hits it straight and decently long for her age.  We are both even thru 3 holes until I make a double on the 4th hole. By the time we finish the front I’m 2 over and she’s 1 over. Back nine I had 1 birdie, 2 bogey’s and the rest were pars for a 75. She shoots 34 on the back with 3 birdies, two were back to back.  A71 for her.  She will be playing in the Woman’s  North South here next week and the Junior as well.  She has no desire to become a Pro Golfer, she is going to Medical School to become an Anesthesiologist.  Impressive I thought! Todays old story…played with two old guys, one is 85 but plays ok and the other was 79. I’m the young guy at 67.  What a comedy!  I could tell immediately they play a lot together as the ribbing never stopped.  I quickly learned to stay alert as their shots started going everywhere!  Then the 85 year old guy gets the shanks! Never seen it so bad and I’ve had them a few times but never like this. The other guy played a very military game with shots left, right, left and so one. The on the 9th hole the 79 year old left a club on the previous hole and left to get it. Then the 85 year old checks his bag and the lost club is in it. Off he goes to get the other guy. They return eventually as the 1st guy went two holes back searching for his club. I’m in the fairway on the 10th hole waiting and here they come.  So then the 79 year old turns his cart steering wheel tightly to turn around and somehow gets the tow hook caught over the right front wheel axle rod so now the cart can only go in a circle!  It took about 15 minutes to figure that out! We fixed it using one of his irons to pull the tow hook loose! What next I thought.  We finally finished. The good news there was we finished in 2hrs 40min! Happy 4th!
