January 2023 Golf Trip in Hilton Head

Due to a minor mismanagement of my vacation club points, I have decided to try and put together a golf trip to Hilton Head Island. I'm thinking either a four or five night stay around the second week of January. I should be able to get two 2-bedroom villas at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort, which is right near Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. I'll post a picture of the floorplan below:

King sized bed in the master bedroom, two queens in the other bedroom (standard hotel room layout), a pullout queen and twin in the common room. Should sleep five comfortably. Also has a full kitchen and washer/dryer.

I'm posting this topic to see if anybody would be interested in joining. I've spoken with @DaveP043 and his wife Mary Anne about it when I visited them last week and they are interested, so we have at least three. I was going to ask @jsgolfer if he would be interested, but totally forgot about it when we played at Springfield. Tagging some others here: @iacas, @saevel25, @Hardspoon, @GolfLug, @DeadMan, @boogielicious, @jamo

I'll do more research into golf courses in the area, too, but right now everything is kind of in the pre-planning stage. Feel free to chime in if you might be interested or have any experience with the area and have any course/dining recommendations.

It’s a possibility. My wife may be retiring at the end of the year (no date yet). Let’s see as we get closer.

Highly interested, would just like to know date(s) before early November as I have my winter Junior Elite Program, and so long as I know the dates before that, I can build it into the schedule.

Thanks for the tag @billchao. Would love to go down there but son's birthday on Jan 12 so will be tough to pull it off. His birthday shindig prolly that coming weekend.

Sounds like a great trip.

My son’s birthday is July 19. As I recall we had some kind of golf thing or another around that time…

I’m just teasing you, man. I’m sure we’ll meet up again another time.

Ok.

I'm closing on a house around then, and will be trying to manage the move, and January is always difficult for work...

...so, yes.  I'm in.  Haha.

This comment made me literally laugh out loud.

I was thinking of seeing what the interest level is and then figuring out what kind of works best for everyone, or is it simply better to just say these are the dates and go from there? Either way, I want this figured out before November.

Uhhh. I say do whatever you want. It’s your trip. Whatever is easiest for you.

I am interested, but not 100% sure yet. I will continue to monitor this thread as it develops.

Ok, here’s what I was thinking:

Six days, five nights. Monday 1/9 to Saturday 1/14, or Tuesday to Sunday, but I figured the extra weekend day on the way back would work better for people getting home and getting settled for work and stuff.

With the two days as travel days, that leaves four days there just for golf so we should get at least four rounds in. It’s still going to be January so 36 holes in a single day might not work out. Three days for golf might not be enough time to make it worth the travel.

Thanks for thinking of me, @billchao, but I'm not going to be able to make this trip work.

If you get tee times, not to far apart, you get 10.5 hours of daylight. Might be able to work 36 holes in. 

Temps average around low in the low 40's and highs in the mid 60's. Dress in layers 😛

 No problem, maybe another time.

Frost delays are a possibility from what I’ve read, so that would throw a wrench in the works.

Still beats January weather in NJ 😃

    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.

    • These were not from the same line. I moved around a little bit and picked a hole that had some slope. Downhill     1.      9' 1 2.      9' make 5 3.      10' 1 4.      11' make 7 5.      12' 1       Uphill     6.      9' make 5 7.      10' 1 8.      10' make 6 9.      11' 1 10.    12' short -1         Total 27    
    • Driver (Taylor Made SIM 2) Tour Edge hybrid (I think 18 degree) 4 iron  I used to have 2 hybrids instead of one. I used to have a 3 wood also.  I took the 3W out of my bag because I didn't use it very often. I had less confidence with it than the hybrid, probably because I used it less than the hybrid, it was a longer club, etc. If I have a "3W" tee shot, I either use the hybrid and accept the loss of distance, or I will choke up an inch on my driver or tee it a little lower or whatever.  I use only 1 hybrid because I just didn't find many cirucumstances where I felt I _needed_ one over the other. Either was fine.  If that sounds dumb or illogical or whatever, I don't disagree...I am not recommending this for anyone. I just want the bag to be lighter and simpler and am not claiming this was the ideal decision for my game.
