Day 3 - Round 2 of the World Am at Carolina National


My second round of the World Am took place at the 27-hole, Fred Couples-designed Carolina National Golf Club in Bolivia, North Carolina (http://www.carolinanationalgolf.com). Yes, Bolivia, North Carolina, a one hour drive north of Myrtle Beach. Unfortunately, with over 3,000 competitors, not all of your rounds can be played along the Grand Strand.

Getting to Carolina National was certainly a hike but well worth the drive. After playing my competitive round, I decided to play another 18 holes, something I only do when I really like the golf course. This is a World Am player favourite as everyone I talked to after our round had nothing but good things to say about Carolina National. A tougher track than Possum Trot (Round 1) but equally fair and enjoyable. The fairways are wide and the landing areas generous, a course characteristic I appreciate. The bermuda-grass greens continued to fool me but were impeccable. Overall, Carolina National was in fabulous condition and another golf course I'd highly recommend.  The green fee rate at this time of year is (USD) $55, including cart and taxes.

Play got underway again at 9am…
