For this years 2014 US Open. Looking for somewhere to stay that is within an hours drive of the US open. A town with good bars? Golf courses close?
The plan is to start aound the NC/SC area. We will probably 3/4 nights as we have US open tickets for the Thursday. Somewhere with some good public golf courses we can play would be a bonus as we're keen golfers.
I have been looking at Raliegh and Greensboro for hotels (both seems about an hour away from pinehurst) as everything seems fully booked near Pinehurst. What would you suggest for a group of 30 year old guys, looking for golf and good bars around NC and close enough to the Open to travel too on the day?
