I've played most of the 100 or so courses in the MB area. The courses mentioned by the OP  (Aberdeen, Waterway, Man O War)  aren't among my favorite 40 (except for Wildwing). Here is a link to my favorites and a link to photo tours of MB courses from my most recent trips.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/golfcoursepix/collections/72157632004669462/  MB courses photo tours   http://golfcourses.weebly.com/myrtle-beach--the-grand-strand.html - MB Favorite Course site
Try to play both if you can. The consensus of my group may have been a very slight preference for Panther Lake, but the vote was tighter than the last Presidential election and we were happy with both choices which was not true of the election  Don't sweat it if you can only play one. Play whichever one you can get the best tee time.   Here are photo tours of both courses from two winter rounds at each...
Tough choice. Pacific is the most popualr, but any of them will be a great round. Try to chnage your plans to play all four.  Here is a photo tour of all four:   http://golfcourses.weebly.com/bandon-dunes-resort-bandon-oregon.html

No need to change any of your choices. Cally, True Blue and the Dunes are the three must plays on the "Grand Strand". Your other three choices are not far behind. If you want to consider other options, the only other courses I'd consider would be the Dye, Love and Fazio courses at Barefoot Resort or Tigers Eye & Leopards Chase at Ocean Ridge Plantation. I've played more than 60 courses in MB and the only reason to consider others is if you want to save a few bucks. There...

This thread is idiotic. Other than expense, none of the criticism's mentioned are any more applicable to resort courses as a category than they are to any other category of courses, be it munis, daily fees. residential  or privates     Many non-resort daily fee courses make the same claims. "Long and  difficult" is not any more prevelant with respect to resort courses than it is at any other type of course. "Difficult"  is the opposite of what Ray G was saying was the...
    What resorts you are talking about?  What you say doesn't describe any golf resort I've been to and I've been to many. Bandon, the Broadmoor, Pebble, Pinehurst, Kiawah, Kohler, Bay Hill, Disney, Reunion, Mission Inn, Greenbrier, PGA , Innisbrook, Shingle Creek, Reynolds Plantation, Barefoot, the Sagamore, The Wynn, and all the places in Northern Michigan that a previous poster mentioned.  I can't think of one that jibes with your decription.  How can you say resort...
Here's another green with a bunker in the middle. #17 at Bayside in Ogallala Nebraska. It is a fun hole. I played two rounds a day  on successive days from different tees each round with the pin in different places. It wa cool trying to figure out how to putt and run the ball down certain slopes for the best chance at a two putt. In some places a 1 putt was impossible but that is almost true on "normal" greens. The main point is you need to be on the right are of the...
