Where would you PICK?

40th birthday golf trip
My wife said that she would like to go on a 3 or 4 day golf trip to anywhere in the USA that I desire. Time and weather will be a constraint in February. I immediately thought of the following venues:

Pebble Beach (not sure if really worth the BIG price tag)
BANDON Dunes (frontrunner right now)
A combination of TPC Sawgrass, Sea Island and The Ocean Course on kiawah Island (leaning towards this as well)
Pinehurst NO. 2 and a few other nice tracks there...

NO Myrtle Beach as I have been there TOO MUCH!

I am missing any other destinations? Too bad I didn't have more time, Ireland and/or scotland would be my ultimate choice!

What do uo guys think?

No doubt Bandon Dunes would be an awesome golf trip, but what is the weather like in Oregon in February? I honestly don't know the answer off the top of my head, but I would think that might be a problem.

 

You might consider San Antonio. The temperature can be pretty mild in February as long as a major front is not blowing through, but it is still a roll of the dice when you have to book a couple of months in advance. There are some good solid courses to play: La Cantera courses (Resort and Palmer), Pecan Valley, The Quarry, Canyon Springs.

 

Hawaii might be your best bet, but be prepared to shell out the money!

Hawaii would be GREAT, but I want to stay longer, more like 10-14 days.

You could always do the RTJ Trail in Alabama. With 14 days you could easily get through most, if not all, of the trail. Not sure if this is golf since there are some drives between courses, but you won't be sorry for doing it!!

Definitely Scottsdale. Too many good ones to even list. And the weather in Feb? I went this past Feb and it was low 70's w/ no humidity. Absolutely perfect, and the town is very charming. The hotels and green fees only strengthen my argument!

 

 

Good luck, and let us know what you end up choosing.

dido i forgot scottsdale...desert mountian is amazing and with 8 courses you cant go wrong...and o ya the weather is spectacular in febuary!

 

good luck hope this helps

I'd want a unique experience - Bandon with 3 courses.

 

I'd check with sponsor, Discount Dans, to check the weather. I'm sure if you research you can find a temp/rain map during various months in that area - try the chamber of commerce nearby.

Goto Bandon Dunes no question. You could get some bad weather just like Scotland or Ireland but you could also get some perfect weather I have played there and gotten 60* and sunny more than once in Feb.

I think that Bandon in February will be miserable. Probably high 40's and wet. It's no accident that the price is better at that time.

 

You will be a lot better off in Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage/La Quinta Desert Communities in California.

 

The weather is perfect, usually 70's and sunny in February.

 

The courses are pristine that time of the year b/c they've come back from the fall overseeding.

 

Standby Golf can get you cheaper prices at all the best courses if you book the times the day before.

 

It's a "must go" in February!!!

Yeah, you could go to where it's warmer, like Palm Springs or Scottsdale, but you'll forget about the experience after a month or 2.

 

At Bandon in Feb, you can get 36 holes per day for about $135, and like I said, it was sunny and in the low to mid-50s when I was there this past president's day. Once the mid-morning sun came out, I didn't need a jacket. It is Scotland-links golf with better weather. Your memories will last a lifetime.
