Going down to Myrtle Beach in November to visit Mom. She was volunteering at a fundraiser a couple months back, and won a free foursome on The Dunes. Will also play some others down there, not sure which ones yet. Always open to suggestions.

Going to Hawaii in December. Going to play Turtle Bay while we stay there for a couple days, then Poipu Bay, Puakea, and Kiahuna while we're on Kauai.

Caledonia is my favorite in the area.  I also really liked Tigers Eye. Barefoot (Love/Dye) TPC Myrtle Beach.  Tidewater was good but some reason I did not like it as much as I thought I would.

Have you played Princeville - Prince?  It's spectacular.  Also enjoyed Kauai Lagoons Kiele.

Also not sure the current pricing is the same as last year but if you play TB Fazio in the morning and Palmer in the afternoon the rate for Fazio+replay round on Palmer is actually slightly cheaper than 1 round on Palmer. Fazio is not a memorable course by any means especially for Hawaii but it is still fun to play, wide open and if the wind is not blowing 30mph very easy to score on. Also dont forget to hit up Ted's bakery down the road from TB

Headed to Tahoe in few weeks, playing a tournament at Edgewood on saturday, booked dragon for friday and looking at options for sunday.
I know everyone says coyote moon but i think after two days of golfing and whatever happens saturday night I dont want to drive too far from the south lake on sunday as we will be driving back to the bay area sunday evening.
Any one have any options that will be great ...

Just FYI the dragon to south lake is easily a 2.5+ hour trip especially on a Friday. I live in Kings beach and to even get through town can take forever..

Dragon is a good course but personally would rather play coyote moon. Played coyote last Friday and it was in great shape although a little slow pace wise (around 4.5hours) and expensive at $145 ($115 NCGA) twilight.

South lake is tough because there are really only two courses, Edgewood and LTGC. Haven't played LTGC since May and it's nice enough but always gets a ton of play since it's the less expensive choice. Best bet could be play Incline championship Sunday and drive home from there up over to I80.

Edgewood is a really great course! Have fun

Thanks for the advice, have a slight change as we are playing old greenwood on friday , edgewood on saturday and dragon on sunday.

You reckon we would have trouble driving to dragon on sunday from south lake ?

Plan is to drive friday from the bay direct to old green wood and finish the round before heading south to tahoe and spend the night so next morning we dont have to drive too much before the tournament at edgewood. Saturday night will depend on what the tourney hosts have planned as things are being finalized.

Not trying to dissuade you (if you haven't allredy taken your trip) since that is a good lineup. Played those 3 over 3 days last time my mom came to visit in the summer and had a great time. Just giving warning since most people underestimate just how big of an area Lake Tahoe is and with all roads being 2 lane highways time adds up really quickly.

Curious to hear your thoughts on the different courses.

Member Guest tournament down in Dunedin (Tampa area) coming up next month. Looks like we'll all go play Streamsong the day before, then see who can stay the most sober for three days and hold it together.

This is our first time heading out to Hawaii. We're staying in Poi'Pu while we're on Kauai, so we're trying to stay closer to home this time around. Not that it's a long drive to the north shore. Thanks for the recommendation, though, I'm sure we'll be going back some time.

Fairway: Callaway Epic 4 (14*) and 5 (19*)
Irons: Cobra King F6 (4-PW)
Wedges: Cleveland RTX-3 2 dot (50, 54, 60)

Let us know how Dunedin looks.  Played it last January (2017).  Staff was exceptional, course conditions were marginal at best.  Going back to Tampa this January, considering playing it again if conditions have improved at all.
