Talking GolfGetaways: Shacking up at Tobacco Road

In their golf travel vlog, Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch come to you from the newly renovated cottage off the 14th hole at Tobacco Road near Pinehurst, N.C., and show off their view (day and night) at the Mike Strantz beauty.

The boys stayed at the cabin for several nights, getting in some night golf on the 14th hole, which is lit with flood lighting at the cabin.

Take a look at some of their adventures on Instagram!

Our final day @tobaccoroadgolf. Early range time, and a gorgeous morning at this #MikeStrantz gem. My wife @EwaLaurance played lights out on the back, including a brilliant shot on the devilish Par5 11th (tap for her reaction), and crushed me 5 and 4 to finish our 3 days with a match win each and a push. Perfect. Amazing time with her, @golfgetaways and @jsasman12, capped off with a great dinner at the iconic #pinecrestinn in #Pinehurst. Home tomorrow, but a boatload of great memories. Thanks to @realstewartkick and @tobaccoroadgolf & Travel for the chance to experience again one of the great tracks anywhere, and the magic of the new #StewartCabin. #TalkingGolfGetaways @GolfNewsNet @seamusgolf @claretdreamer #whyilovethisgame #golftravel

Mitch and Darin also got a first look at Gil Hanse's The Cradle, his new short course at Pinehurst. It looks spectacular, and it's $50 for adults and free for kids.
