Just moved to Hilton Head so my first round of golf was Jan 2 at Trent Jones Golf Club in Palmetto Dunes. It was 70 and sunny! :-D

I used to play there all the time when I lived in Savannah.  My favorite was the Arthur Hills course, but all three courses are great.

Yeah, I really like Arthur Hills as well...from a layout standpoint.   But it all depends what condition it is in.   Over the years it has been pretty hit or miss.  It gets so much tourist play that sometimes those greens are beat to hell.  Fazio is the same way...and if you think about it there are a bunch of mirror image holes on that course.  I REALLY like Country Club of Hilton Head!...especially since they redid all of their greens...they are smooth as glass right now.  And in typical Rees Jones fashion, the bunkers are everywhere!   Some people don't care for it but I just really like how every hole is either a dogleg right or dogleg left.  You have to have all the shots to score well at CCHH.  Oyster reef (rees jones) is another one of my favs!  I actually live right on the course.  Golden Bear, Palmetto Hall courses are great too!

Usually can't get out around here until mid April but the last couple of years have been heading down to Nova Scotia to start the season with my usual foursome in late March.

I played Tustin Ranch here in Orange County on 12/31/11...  Was a shitty round.  Then played on 1/1/12 at Milesquare in Fountain Valley.  Nothing beats the weather we've been having.  Today is was sunny and close to 80F.

ha! Nice! I actually just moved down recently but I am splitting time between HH and indiana until my wife starts her new job down there. So I am currently in Indiana right now, where it is snowing. ughh! Hopefully we will be down there full time by March. Though I'll be heading back in two weeks! Can't wait!

Also, Is that profile picture the dreaded #12 at Arthur Hills Palmetto Dunes? That whole is my worst enemy on the island. Not only does it always kick my arse, but one time I was looking for my father in law's ball (he hit it about ten feet off the tee straight left into the trees) and I caught a palm frond right in the eye ball...still finished the round though. But I couldn't see out of that eye for like two weeks...thought I was gonna lose my site. I also stepped down by the water to (looking for my father in laws ball again..he's terrible) and the biggest gator I have EVER seen in my life came out of the water. I almost had a heart attack! I used to see it all the time out there, but I think they took it out of there last year. If you haven't seen him before, this thing had to be 10-12+ feet long and its back was literally 2 feet off the ground...it's head was enormous! I have a picture of it on my old phone. One time I was putting on 9 green and I hear this "clack clack" so I looked over to my left towards that pond and it was crossing the street holding up traffic. My idiot buddy also grabbed its tail at my bachelor party...he's obviously not too bright or sober. :~(

No, it is the 6th hole at Hilton Head National (actually my favorite course that I have played so far).  Usually play at Old South, have yet to play a round on the island.  There are too many golf courses and too little time, LOL.

Ahh! I have never played Hilton Head National or Old South but I hear great things...Dont you get really good local rates at both of those courses? I still have my Inidana ID but that will soon change once i get back down there. And you are right about the amount of good courses...there is world class golf course every 10 feet. It's heaven on earth!!!

Yes, local rates are around half of the regular rate.  Even in the peak season, I have not paid more than $45 for a round at Old South.  Paid $50 for HH National back in April/May.

If I wanted to prepay for 20 rounds at Old South, it would only cost me $22 per round.  Tempting but I need more variety, LOL.

Wow...that is a really good deal. Oyster reef was only charging around 40 for locals but i think they have ended thaT deal. Tht course is my favorite! Golden bear has a local deal too

    • Rham was in that bunker and couldn’t even aim at the hole no? Or maybe it was Brooks?
    • I'm fully vaccinated and still wear a mask indoors. Outdoors, no, unless it is wall to wall people, that happens not infrequently in the big city. Haven't gone to a movie or eaten at a restaurant inside yet.
    • It depends on the Final Fantasy you play.  FF15 combat system is not my favorite. It's way to flashy and less turn based feel to it.  FF12 combat system was great. You had complete ability to customize any of the characters. With the gambit system, you can basically program out combat based on IF Then type scenarios. Then you can actually play hands free if you want to try.  I like FF because you get to upgrade the characters. A good number of characters have a good story arc. The plot is usually good. Its very cinematic.  They can be linear, but they are fun. 
    • Another round, another super divot, twice!!!!!!
    • I never understood why FF is so popular. I think I have the 7 remake in my PS library as part of PS+. I've been meaning to try it. Tried Squadrons since it's the latest monthly game on PS+ and flying a TIE fighter is hard, only played for 20 minutes though.
