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...
Best bang for the Buck is Vista Verde.   Here is a link to a list of the best Phoenix/Scoittsdale area courses and photos.   http://golfcourses.weebly.com/phoenix-az.html
I was at Bandon earlier this month. Here's a link to report and photo tour of the courses. (Scroll down on the linked page if you want to skip staright to the photos)     http://golfcourses.weebly.com/bandon-dunes-resort-bandon-oregon.html    
The 5th course is a par three (12 holes I believe). It looks complete vand the grass is in. You can see it from the first tee at Bandon Trails. It lies between there and the Bandon Dunes course. My caddie said it is set to open in the spring of 2012.   There are also plans for another full size course south of the original course. It is being designed by Gil Hanse and is in the process of obtaining permits.  
Gullane and North Berwick are a bit of a drive from St Andrews. If you are looking to play some great links at a lower price than Kingsbarns or Carnoustie, and close to St Andrews, I'd suggest the following: Crail-Balcomie course, Elie, Lundin or Leven. I'd suggest calling these courses as soon as you determine that you'll not be playing St Andrews rather than just turning up at the course.  
I'll be there staring a week from tomorrow. I'll post a report when I return
Caesarea Golf Club in Israel is a nice Pete Dye layout. It is also close to some ancient Roman ruins on the Mediterranean Sea just about a mile from the course. Here's a link to photos of the course I took when I played there last month.   http://sports.webshots.com/album/580665512tYeMAE   There is a young player on the Duke women's golf team named Letitia Beck who grew up playing at Caesarea. I see that she played as an amatuer in last week's LPGA...
That's a bummer. I back mine up on a second drive and copy them all on to disc as well.   I'm jealous of all the great Irish courses you've played. I hope to make my first trip to Ireland in 2013 or 14. Probably the Southwest... Ballybunion, Lahinch, Waterville, Tralee, Dooks, Old Head etc  Until then I can view the photos.   I'm off to our own true links, Bandon Dunes, next week. Can't wait  
Do you know where you'll be staying? It is about 75 miles between Carolina National and caledonia with about 95 courses in between, all considered "Myrtle Beach" area courses. I can make better recommendations if I know  which area you are  staying in, any budget limitations, what criteria you prefer in choosing a course, such as how important is scenerey and the "wow" factor, how important is architectuarl values and shot values, do you want a long or tough course or...
