  1. Kiawah isn't exactly the place to go for a trip that "doesn't cost a fortune". It's upscale and has good restaurants but is in general a very calm and laid back place, so it might not have the type of nightlife you're looking for. BTW, renting a villa rather than staying at the hotel (The Sanctuary) will save you a lot of money. For the golf, there are 5 resort courses. The Ocean Course is the only one that's truly a world class course, but you'll definitely enjoy the others. The others are all pretty similar in quality (except for maybe oak point which I haven't played but have h
  2. It's about a 6 hour drive, but World Woods in Florida's got 2 very nice courses and there are others nearby.
  3. Anyone know the rules around getting onto the Dormie Club in Pinehurst? I know it's been public the past few years but is planning on going fully private sometime this year. I know they still accept some outside play (I think mostly through packages like Tobacco Road or Talamore), but is there a way to play without a package? There's nowhere online I can find to just book a tee time. It it worth calling or sending an email?
  4. When you look at lists of the top courses in the US, the top of that list is still old courses that we'll never play (Pine Vally, Cypress, Augusta, Merion, ect.). However, I've noticed a ton of the best modern courses have all been public. See golfweeks's list of top 100 modern courses. https://golfweek.usatoday.com/lists/golfweeks-best-2020-top-200-modern-courses/ . Sand Hills, Friars Head, and Ballyneal are are private, but there are way more public ones than the overall top 100 list. It seems like Coore & Crenshaw and Tom Doak are always working on a new course at golf reso
  5. There are several courses out there that are some of the best in the US, but never host majors for various reasons. Pine Valley because the members don't want it and there is no room for spectators. Sand Hills probably just because it is too remote. Cypress Point since it is probably just too short to really test the best in the world and I don't think the members want it. With all this aside, which course would you like to see anyways.
