    Depending on the time of year you go...



    Spring, I love to go to the RTJ Trail in Alabama. A ton of great courses across the state and well priced also. Have a central location to start from and take a few mini-trips during the week and play some super golf.



    Myrtle Beach has about 150 courses and a great deal of them are really nice. Again, good prices on a lot of courses and some expensve ones for the ballers.

    The correct answer is Bandon Dunes.

    There's really no right or wrong answer as it depends on what time of the year you're planning this trip. If it's a winter trip I'd suggest Palm Springs. You won't find better weather anywhere in the US in the winter time. Even Myrtle Beach is a crap shoot in the winter time. If it's a spring/summer trip then Myrtle would be hard to beat along with Ocean City, Md. Again, it all depends on when and how much you want to spend because those two definitely go hand in hand.

    All of the previous posts are good. One question for you to consider is what you guys are going to do when not golfing? For that, you may want to consider Vegas. The golf is great at reasonable rates then you have the gambling and nightlife, flights are very attractive if you book enough in advance.

    Bandon Dunes.



    Pacific Dunes was #1 on Golf Magazine's Top 100 in the US you can play. Pebble Beach was #2, and all 3 courses at Bandon were in the top 10.

    Bandon Dunes no question about it. Anywhere else you go you will play inferior golf.

    Would help if we knew a bit more about what you are looking for (i.e, time of year and your budget). If money is available, you will not be disapointed with Bandon. I have not had a chance to play the new course Bandon Trails, but was amazed at both Bandon and Pacific Dunes. If money is a little more tight, it is hard to beat either the RTJ Golf Trail or Myrtle Beach.

    so far we've done either with friends or the wife,

    myrtle beach (trailor trash element, not easy for everyone to get to)

    palm springs in the summer (hot as ****, but cheap and great courses)

    scottsdale - great but not that cheap

    miami area - rains in the afternoons seasonally, lots of water courses

    want to do pinehurst next or bandon as mentioned previously...

    i assume the B means you are in boston. so if your friends are there also, and you are figuring 3-4 nights? you need somewhere easy to get to for everyone, i guess that is what i would look at , places with direct flights OR close airport and a drive... Give us an update when you book and go, i'm always interested in other peopel's experiences... for us, bandon is long flight from dulles and a transfer probably or direct to portland??? and a few hour drive, so need that to be a longer trip than 3 nights for that much effort. i had a spreadsheet of the costs somewhere i gotta look for it, pm me if you want it, to figure out costs a bit for splitting rental car, courses, food estimates, etc... so you can estaime for the people. good luck!!!! peter

    If your not opposed to going oversees, I just went to Scotland and it was the greatest golf trip you can ever take. Plenty to do outside of playing golf, and depending on when you go you can play up until 9:00-10:00 at night.



    If you want to consider this I can help with booking also.

    Don't go to Myrtle Beach...go to Hilton Head....well maybe not because a lot of the courses on Hilton Head are private.
