like the title says, i went to destin florida with my girlfriend and my best friend and his fiance. we played at "The Links" located in sandestin, and wow what an experience. this was my first time at a nicer course and i had such an amazing time. they sent a driver to pick us up from our hotel and we were greeted by a staff member who completely hooked us up with all the info we needed and got us ready for our round. we went up to the pro shop and looked around for a while and bought some souveniers while we waited for our tee time to get a little closer before we went to the range and hit some balls, which was included in our price. maybe it's because i haven't played many high end courses, but i was so impressed with the condition of this course, and the friendliness of it's staff. we got paired up with a really nice guy and his 10 year old grandson, i've never been paired with strangers before and was a little nervous as first. it ended up really adding to the experience getting to know this guy who was real friendly and cheering on his grandson who was pretty good for his age! i've also never played on a packed course, but thanks to this site i knew the etiquette of staying on the heels of the group in front of you. it was actually quite a bit more relaxing and enjoyable with so much time between shots, we got to soak in the views and enjoy the weather! needless to say i'll be buying a travel bag and playing every chance i get on vacations from here on out.
also as a sidenote we both rented a set of the new nike clubs (covert 2.0 driver, 3 hybrid, 3 wood, new irons, and method putter) and they were a blast to play with!
