Barbecue and golf are hot topics in South Carolina, and one of our dedicated readers, Dr. Bruce Wellmon of Gaffney, SC, wasted no time –- actually about 60 seconds after we posted the article above –- in weighing in with his own recommendations. His first two, Bridges Barbecue in Shelby, NC, and Lexington Barbecue in the famous North Carolina barbecue mecca of the same name, are admittedly not near any decent golf courses. However, Bruce recommended the Pik 'n' Pig in Carthage, NC as a must stop. Talk about a combo of golf and 'cue, Carthage is less than a half hour from Pinehurst, which you may have heard of. Better yet, the Pik 'n' Pig has a small airport attached as well as a driving range. Feel free to fly in, warm up, pig out and head for Tobacco Road. Golf and hog heaven in the Sandhills.
