I hate winter with a passion. Hated it growing up in Ohio...still hate January & February in NC, except for the fact that I can usually get three or four rounds in before March.
That said, I'm about to take off on Friday for my second straight "get the hell out of Dodge and play golf weekend" in Myrtle Beach.
Great thing about playing in January/early February...$44 rounds on Trent Jones and Arnold Palmer courses that would cost you $100 plus in two months.
Ocean front hotels running at $60 a night that'll cost you $250+ in another two months.
Last year, I played Man-o-War, The Wizard, and The Witch.
This year I'm playing Aberdeen, Waterway Hills and Myrtle Beach National South Creek.
Booze, beach ,and golf. Not a bad life...at least this week.
