Default Golf vacation questions.....

I am thinking about taking a little vacation by myself for the SOLE purpose of hitting the links the entire time.

It will probably be for about 5 days (wed-sun) and am looking in the SC, FLA region.

here are a few questions for anyone who has taken golf vacations.

1. anny recommendations to where? Just going down for a few days.........not trying to break the bank......but i would like to be in a good area that has many different public courses nearby. Ive played the worlds best (firestone CC, Pebble beach, etc...) so i dont need it to be lavish since ive already done that.


2. Since ill be by myself.......I am assuing they are going to stick me with someone. which kinda sucks. But i know around here after the frist tee you can split up again and no one cares, but are courses in the prime locations like SC or FLA more strict?

3. And my most important one.......i used to be on the golf team in high school, and my fresh year in college......we used to play so many rounds it wasn't even funny. During the summer it was 45 holes every day during the week, and about 2000 range balls every day on the weekends. It was cool and it really did help me improve my game, but at the same time it started to take the fun out of it. So my question is this: Would you recommend getting as many rounds in as possible (maybe 54/day) though ihave done 72 in a day.........or just playing 18 and enjoying it a little more. I am kinda torn...part of me thinks i should make the most of my time down there, the other half says relax and enjoy it more. I haven't played a round in 18 months because of shoulder surgery and no golf in cleveland for 5 months outta the year. So i need all the practice i can get to get back into it before my outings start back up.

Just curious what you guys did, where, and how much golf.


Thanks

Not sure how far west you'll be in FL, but Lost Key near Pensacola is a nice course. Not that expensive either, at least when I was there a few years ago.

If you come through Alabama, you can try out Silver Lakes. It's a Robert Trent Jones course which has three, nine holes courses. Heartbreaker, Backbreaker and the Mindbender. It is one of the more fancy courses here in Bama, so I only play it about twice a year. But it is a very nice and competitive course.

Oh yeah, Silver lakes is located on U.S Highway 431 North/South(depending on which way you're coming from) in between Anniston and Gasden.

Charleston, SC has awesome links in close proximity to the city, great food, weather, and a great atmosphere.

Myrtle is great for pure golf. You can choose courses from $40 to $150 depending on how much you are willing to pay

90 courses all within 45 minutes of downtown Myrtle

My dad's friend did this last year:

http://www.omnihotels.com/FindAHotel...mitedGolf.aspx

He said it was a blast and great for the price. Said it was easy enough to be flexible in the afternoon that you could either play or not play your call. Said the par three course at night was real fun.

Not a bad deal, but I'm always skeptical until I've heard reports from more than one person.

Hilton Head is great for golf. Many great courses and you should be able to split up if you chose. Oh and enjoy it, that means 36 a day. lol

I have no desire to go anywhere else - world class golf - a fourth new course which will open soon and be the best yet - Bandon Dunes

It is true links golf, not some imitation that loosely uses the description. Much like playing in Scotland/Ireland without having to travel. It is all about golf. No carts, walking only. You are not rushed. Located right on the ocean amidst sand dunes.

Arizona is hard to beat for golf. Price, options of courses, travel options and nightlife afterwards are probably as good as anywhere.

Very nice course! Do you ever play any of the other courses on the trail?
