I put on my Bonobos flat front stone khaki shorts, Nike sneakers, overpriced silk blue golf shirt and NoDa hat and went out to Quail Hollow yesterday morning at 7:30 am.

Turns out that their Director of Communications Lee Patterson is an Agenda subscriber. You’re my boy, Lee! He’s a pro’s pro and I got the feeling he knows everybody in the golf world. Cool dude. I met with Lee and Hailey Cobb to get the scoop before the crowds, sun dresses, ribbon belts and croakies hit Quail Hollow.

First, I nerded out in the media area because I was on the only media nerd that got there super early on Monday of tournament week. The buffet was unreal – I ate eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and a token piece of melon to feel healthy. Texas Pete? Of course.

Okay, here are the 10 spots you need to hit up:

(1) All American Pub. Outstanding design. Plenty of tables. Large shade area. Big screen piping coverage. Close to the green on 10 and fairway of 13. Far away from the entrance, so only people in the know will be smart enough to get cold beers and Warehouse Chicken Sandwiches here. Well executed.

(2) Event Lawn. Yes, everybody will be here because it’s close to the gates – but whatever, you have to do it. Eat the BBQ from Queen City Q.

(3) Tee at Hole #18. Admire that tee shot. You know you’d rope hook it into that stream on the right.

(4) Green Mile Village. Order their signature Tee Time Cocktail. Borders holes 16, 17 and 18 so a great spot to pop in and out.

(5) Tee at hole #1. Beautiful way to start things off.

(6) Social Media Hub. I felt like I was clubbing. Actually, I’ve never been to a club, so I’m not even sure why I said that. Fancy red sofas. White leather chairs. Stagecoach. Large screens all over the place. I didn’t know if I could get in the stagecoach or not, but I was feeling crazy, so I did.

(7) Bojangles’. It’s by the 4th tee next to Honey Baked Ham. Who the heck would ever eat Honey Baked Ham over Bojangles’? Actually, who the heck eats Honey Baked Ham in general?

(8) Champions Park. Great bar spot with outstanding shade coverage between the 9th and 10th holes. Shade is your friend. Also, hit up the charity tent area (next to practice chipping green) – unless you hate Charlotte volunteerism.

(9) Putting green. Awkwardly stare at the players here as they putt. Chit chat about why they all have oversized belt buckles. Player entourages also chill out here so you can view wives, girlfriends, agents and more.

(10) Clubhouse Hospitality. Just messing, we’re not important enough to have access here.
