planning a hilton head golf trip, any suggestions?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I am planning a Hilton Head Golf trip vacation with my uncle and a couple of friends. I was wondering if anyone has been down there and can give me any suggestions on where to stay and play. There is a golf expo coming feb 8 in pa. thought maybe i could get some good info there too. Plan is to fly down thurs-sun come home monday. Play lots of golf, is 2 rounds a day too much or even managable? Planning an end of april trip, and does anyone know when they airrate the greens and plug the fairways, that kind of stuff would be helpful to know. Harbour town any good. thanks for any helpful infor in advance.

Stay at sea pines resort. Steps from harbour town's first tee and all the other courses. They'll treat you so good there. All courses on the island are great, but if you venture just off the island into bluffton I highly recommend Hilton Head National. Also, if you stay at sea pines, bikes are complimentary, and I highly recommend taking a ride around the island, it's very relaxing. Have fun, HH is an amazing place.

You can definitely play 2 rounds per day, but on the weekends those may be long days.

I'd definitely hit Palmetto Dunes; play the Arthur Hills course and the RTJ back to back, and they have a nice clubhouse where you can get lunch.

If you venture into the corridor, I'd look at playing both Hilton Head National and Eagle's Pointe and stop for BBQ at One Hot Mamas.

Harbor Town is a must play, but you may only want to play one round that day, because you'll hate golf after.

Make tee times, and try to play early.  It can get very, very slow there on the weekends, and you'll be there in the prime season.

      It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to learn the rules.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      I took a look at your my swing thread - looks like you've gotten some good advice there and made some solid improvements.  FWIW - I posted this thread here called "What is the Secret of the Golf Swing" . .and I said that, for me, it was realizing how not to aim at the ball.  This "realization" helped me fix a lot of the things I see in your swing.  I'd been told lots and lots of times - don't hit at the ball, swing through to the target . but it didn't make sense to me . .until one day it suddenly did.  Anyway - while I suffered from this misconception - I had a variety of bad shots.  On my good days I could hit it pretty good.  On my bad days anything could happen . .I could slice it, hit it fat, pull hook it, top it, skull it, etc.  Anyway - it's not as easy as just "don't hit at the ball" . .or, as I think of it.  .don't aim "the energy of your swing at the back of the ball".   Speaking just for myself, it took a lot of practice and lessons to get to where I could "suddenly have this realization".  But . .in the meantime - you are hitting it fat (or whatever) because you're making a lot of corrections for some fundamentals that are off.  And, for sure, fatigue would have a lot to do with it.  The more fatigued you are, the less likely you'll be to make this corrections successfully .  If you get lessons or sign up for evolvr or just keep posting in the myswing thread - you can get the (slow) way forward - it's by focusing on one thing and then the next and then the next and yada yada.  I couldn't say what your "next thing" to work on is, though.     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge May 2016
      Practicing different speeds of backswing almost making a drill of it.  Super slow checking positions, then slow, then kind of slow and swing  . I think I had one day of my reply to topic not posting bc sometimes my phone is crappy but was able to do the next morning and had two entries that day.  Its up to the powers that be if I completed the challenge.

      Better video. Full swing.

      I wouldn't trust a FOX poll more than i would trust an NBC poll.  Most polls have the undecided vote easily in the high teens to over 20%, Here are the questions FOX'd asked. Not really exactly the title they showed in that article. Also, they asked the people, "If you don't know: Well, which way do you lean?". That is a crap question to just to tighten up the uncertainty. That way they can just clump them all under Trump or Hillary when they might actually be truly undecided.  This poll is skewed towards the two minority parties anyways. Here is the national party affiliation, The nation is 25% Republican, 44% Independent, and 31% Democrat. The people who answered the poll identified as 40% democrat (+9%), 41% Republican (+17%), 16% Independent ( -28%). No wonder Hillary and Trump got in the mid 40's, that is who they asked the questions from.
