Maybe the Ocean course at Kiawah where they're playing the PGA this year,  plus they have four other courses there, right outside of Charleston

Myrtle beach has some really good courses,and a lot to do. Pinehurst has great courses right across from the hotel, plus great atmosphere and tradition.

Yes you can't beat Sawgrass...Played it twice and can't wait to go back. Nearby is also Amelia Island and a little further south is Ocean Hammock. All top notch!

Of course we're biased but Kiawah is really great in terms of variety of courses, location, and memorable play. Check these out and let us know if you have any questions: Kiawah Island Golf Courses . Congrats on graduation!

I have played Caledonia and True Blue, both in the Myrtle Beach area and both great courses!  A lot of great courses (both cheap and expensive) to choose from down there.  There is also Tobacco Road in NC... wow!  Never played Kiawah or Pinehurst No. 2... but they are on my list and look great.

Have a great trip wherever you decide!

Pinehurst is only 90 min. from my house, but Kiawah has a beach and proximity to Charleston. I'll take Kiawah........or Wild Dunes.

I'd go with Kiawah.  If not Kiawah I'd go to Pinehurst and play The Dormie Club as much as I could.  Great course!

    • What an absolutely crazy final round! If a golf movie were made with that many plot twists, it would go down in flames, After Spieth hit it off the world right on 12 I thought he was done for! To escape with a one putt bogey was huge. Then, when he was getting ready to hit his tee shot on the Par 3, 13th a crazy thought went through my mind. "Watch this guy knock it in the hole and send this place stark raving mad!"  Damned if he didn't almost do it. After that shot, and birdie, he had "the look" back. All the stuff that happened before was gone. A great example of letting the bad stuff go! I will say this, Spieth needs to find a Driver he can trust! Or maybe a Driver swing he can trust. Especially when the wind is hitting him in the back. Yeah, I know! He just won the Open Championship, but he seems to have a problem with that. And I felt sorry for Kuch. He played some damn good golf this week, but just came up a hair short. After they finished on 18 and were shaking hands, you could see in his eyes just how much this hurt!  
    • In my experience; it is the golfer, not the clubs, that are the "most forgiving" at the start of a relationship.  We all want to be proved correct in our decision to bag a new club or clubs.  To that end; we are willing to give the new club(s) a bit more leeway than we grant the old.  I'm guessing that you and your new clubs will get along fine...once you get to know one another.
    • I went out today and worked on some stuff.  Slow mo.  Partial speed and up to maybe 3/4.  It brought the same feeling as this era of my swing.  I could tag it pretty good doing this but the club felt upside down.  Couldn't ever get over that.  Hit a couple today that came off nice with what I worked on.  When you capture the feel of this it seems like the ball is trapped into submission and can't go far off line. This old one was when I was working on the same stuff for a while.  Heads nice width is good face shut.  Good pop on irons with this...
    • If you're looking at the Golf Digest 2016 Hot List categories, the XR irons rank as GI, along with this year's XR Steelhead and Apex CF.16;  the Calla SGI was the XR-OS and this year's Big Bertha OS. Another potential problem with SGI irons: too high launch a shaft. Circa 2009, I was looking to replace my  iron set of 14 years. The Callaway original Big Bertha and the Ping G10 both launched too high with their stock R-flex shafts. The Callaway X20s (played for two seasons), however, had a more moderate launch with the heavier Uniflex shaft. So, don't forget shafts when you're considering SGI, or any other class, of irons.
    • Spieth.  I would be more surprised to see Rory win period at Augusta.
