Catch my eye? You stuck a finger in it man! OK, if you go every quarter I need to give you lots of advice.
You might consider flying into Greensboro, which is about an hour to the east. If you do, it opens up a bunch of other courses you can play, like the Grandover Resort courses. There are 36 holes right around where Interstates 85 and 40 split. Wonderful courses and then it's a short hop to where ever you're going in CLT.
Another place I played was Birkdale, an Arnold Palmer course right on Rte 77 near Mooresville. Nice track and reasonable to play.
You can also take in the Ballantyne Resort south of CLT. Never played there, but heard good things.
