Best Golf in March

5 posts in this topic

Some buddies and I are really getting the itch to tee it up. We would like to take a quick trip at the beginning of March. I was wondering where you think the best place to go to would be? Some thoughts about the trip. We are looking to fly in Friday night, golf 36 Saturday, 18 Sunday and fly home Sunday night. Looking for resonably priced course (whatever that maybe, under $100?) Looking for somwhere with dependable weather.

Two places we are thinking about are Alabama and Austin TX. I don't know much about Austin but I heard it's a great town with good golf. Florida seems to expensive.

Thanks for your input

I am going to the Sandhills region of NC (Pinehurst area) during the last week of February, hopefully the weather will be good... average high is about 60.

This obviously is probably not a good choice for you as you want to play 36 on Saturday... meaning the first tee time will be early.

Desert areas probably most expensive...
Florida or SoCal being a distant second...
Georgia, Alabama, or Mississippi being the best bet for mostly dependable weather and somewhat affordable prices... here are some websites I came across...

March is still high season in Arizona and Palm Springs. Probably Florida too. I'd recommend Alabama. Looks like you are coming from the midwest so flights to Montgomery, Birmingham, or Mobile shouldn't be too difficult.


The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail www.rtjgolf.com has some great course and are good values. I played Grand National last year and am going back to play some others this year.

I can also recommend the Gulf Shores area which has some great courses like Kiva Dunes, www.kivadunes.com but the prices will generally be higher than most of the RTJ golf trail courses.

San Antonio is great for these trips. I went in early March last year and the weather was great and the golf very reasonable. The Quarry, The Republic and a few others are near the airport as well. Give it a look, there are a few websites that specialize in San Antone golf.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
