Bay Tree National is a nice course in Melbourne. http://www.baytreenational.com/sites/courses/layout9.asp?id=806&page=45068   Don't know Harmony Ranch, but Harmony Preserve is a nice course about 40 minutes west of Melbourne   Royal Oak is in Titusville, about 40 minutes north of Melbourne
As others have siad, It is a big state with lots of courses at lots of prices.   If you are considering the Orlando area check out this site:  http://golfcourses.weebly.com/orlando-fl.html - Orlando courses   If you are considering the Tampa area, I'd suggest World Woods. There are two of the best courses in the State at Worldwoods and it is reasonbly priced   If you are considering the West Plam area, I'd suggest PGA Village which has three good...
I'd suggest that you call Brian Noblin at Myrtle Beach Golf Desk. I've used him to book MB trips several times and found him to be honost, knowledegeable and helpful. He'll help you put together a package that will meet your needs at your price point and it won't be overwhleming. 800- 642-3108   http://www.golfdesk.com/   By the way, February can be quite cold in MB. You  can have frost delays and probably won't be able to play 36 holes a day. The main benefit of MB in...
I've played more than 60 of the 100+ courses that remain open on the Grand Strand. My three favorites are True Blue, Caledonia and The Dunes Club.I'll give a description and reasonas at the end of the post.  On the Myrtle Beach Golf Talk forum their was a recent thread askingposters to name their five favorite MB courses. Of the first 21 replies, the courses that were named more than once were as follows. I would inlude most of those in my list of top 20 MB...
Here's a link to an interesting artcile that just appeared in the Wall St Journal about the tstae of golf courses in the U.S.The article says in part that "We won't see anything like the boom that began around 1990 and extended into the early 2000s. During that period, according to the National Golf Foundation, an average of 300 courses a year made their debut in the U.S. The peak was 2000, when about 400 courses opened. Every year since 2006, more courses have closed in...
Why blame B of A? If the owner thinks it's a better business deal to sell the land rather than operate it as a golf course, it's not the buyer's fault. Lots of courses are closing across the country because too  many courses were built in ways that made them too expensive to maintrain and operate.  It's just not a profitable business to be in in many cases.
Doug - I'm not an Englishman, but I made a couple of trips there while my son was in school in London. You can't go wrong playing the Heathland courses in Surrey and Berkshire near London. There are enough world calss courses in that small area to keep you happy for more than a week. Some great 36 hole days are as follow:   Sunningdale Old and New Walton Heath Old and New St George's Hill (Red & Blue 9's)  and New Zealand Woking and Worplesdon Berkshire Red...
Thanks guys for the nice comments about the Bandon trip reoport.  I've been living in a hotel since last Saturday. Electricity just came back on this morning following our big storm.  It's the end of the golf season in the Northeast.  I've just put up a poster sized print of Old Mac #14 on my office wall... that  and the memories of the  Bandon trip will get me through the winter (at least until my Florida trip).
I think March is a great time to go to MB for golf, especially if you are from north of their and it's still too cold to play at home. The weather is better in April and May, but the courses are less crowded in March. In March you can have a morning frost delay once in a while, but the temps are uslyy in theb 40's at dawn and hit the mid 60's at noon. Perfect golf weather. Prime season (and highest green fees usually begins the day after we move the clocks ahead, so I...
The Legends Resort in MB is a great place to saty during a MB golf trip. There are three courses on site at the Legends Resort: Heathland, Moorland and Parkland. I would not put them in my top 5 MB courses, but definitely in the top 20 (out of 100 courses there). They are a great value as the green fees are lower than the other top MB courses. My favorite of the three is Moorland, followed closely by Heathland. Moorland is a PB Dye course and has a lot of interesting...
