Hi, we are doing a Wednesday through Friday mini-meet up, with best friends from Durham, this coming week in Salisbury, NC.
It's about half way for both us; we all love to chase the ball, will hit a winery or two, and do dinners together for 2-3 nights.

GOOG'ng, I see a few
Golf Tracks: Rolling Hills, Corbin Hills, The Crescent, Foxwood GC, and McCanless...
any opins on any of these tracks? We both belong to semi-priv clubs in our respective areas, both men are ~14 HDCP, both women
are ~18-19 HDCP, and are simply looking for fun, new tracks while we are there.

Wineries: I see Old Stone Winery, Rocky River, Childress and Uwharrie in the "area". Both couples have been to several dozen wineries
all over the US, but we would like to hit one on one afternoon; any rec'ds are welcome.

Restaurants: I see dozens listed...any rec'ds on dinner, from anyone? Cartucci's for Italian?

Fwiw, we are staying at Hampton Inn, in Salisbury, but will have 2 cars
and getting around is no problem.

Any, all opins & ideas are welcome and, appreciated. We aren't highbrow, just retired bums looking for some fun, together.
Best Regards,
motordavid

All the courses listed are easy and low cost to play on. The crescent is hardest. Mc canless and Corbin hills are the closest to the hotel.Chidress in Lexington is the newest winery and a nice place to eat too. Also La Cava in Salisbury or my favorite Pinocchios of Spencer which is across from the train museum.

Just a follow up opin, from our Salisbury area meet up with friends:
Chased it on Lexington Golf Club, McCanless, Corbin Hills and Crescent Golf clubs.
All were good tracks, with the usual quirks found in playing a track for the first
time. I agree with "Boss" above that Crescent was the "best", though it played
very long from the 6300 yd markers. Lexington GC was a close 2nd, and in very
good shape for a muni, imo.

Prices were surprisingly low, as in $80 or less, for a foursome. Maybe it was in
consideration of the 90-93 F degs we encountered every day, which wore our
mountain climate fannies out, lol! But, managed to shoot mid-upper 80s each round.

We hit La Cava, Pinocchio, and Cartucci's; it was Italian week, lol!
All good, with maybe Pinocchio being the best value/quality, with La Cava
right behind, but pricey. Cartucci's was good, but the staff was cranked over the the
street fair outside, that wanted to charge each of us $5 "entrance fee" to walk down
the street to get to the restaurant, WTF?

Hit Childress Winery and the Old Stone Winery. Ain't Napa or even upper NY state, but
worth the stops.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn in Salisbury; a tad pricey, even with discounts, and the A/C
only goes "down" to a humid 68 degs.

Salisbury, Spencer, Lexington were all nice towns for walking...

Good time had by all, even if damn hot over there in the flats of central
NC, lol!
BR, mD
