Chapel Hill Country Club and Hope Valley Country Club are both under water the day after Hurricane Florence rolled through. With so much of Governor’s Club being around water and at low spots, there has to be some holes that are completely under water. If you have any pictures or video, please send them to me at email@example.com.
If you have played golf in North Carolina during the summer, you have likely seen beetles on the fairways and greens. The one thing you will likely notice about the specific beetles I’m mentioned is the fact that they always seem to be mating. It is 95 degrees with 80% humidity and five to 10 beetles will be on top of each other in what I am assuming is a mating ritual.
In early August 2018 I had the opportunity to play both Erin Hills and Whistling Straits. Before reading this analysis, understand that I am a 9 handicap that hits his driver about 230-240 yards. So, which one is better? Erin Hills or Whistling Straits?

Champion Bermuda is the talk of the golf world these days; especially in the southern United States. More and more private country clubs in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida are going to Champion Bermuda greens. So, what started this trend? What was the first golf course or country club to go to Championship Bermuda?
If you are want a very exclusive private golf club experience near Hilton Head or Charleston, South Carolina you may start your research on Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, South Carolina. Chechessee Creek is about 30 minutes north of Hilton Head so it is a great way to play golf off the island. If you don’t want to deal with “tourism golf” I strongly suggest playing Chechessee Creek or Secession.
