o O (I think my second shot is usually from somewhere around the women's tee....)

Thanks beach. I've put in a request for caddy, but they said they can't guarantee they'll be available. Just have to wait and hope they are.

I can't believe no one's plugged the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama. It's put Alabama on the map with golfers from around the world. There are nine, maybe ten outstanding courses. Cambrian Ridge in Greenville's the featured course on the new PGA video game, I think. You can start at one end of the state and play a different, award- winning course every day with only an hour or so drive between them. Check it out at

If going to SC, I'd pick Hilton Head over Myrtle Beach if you can handle the 25% higher budget. Less crowded, more of a pure golf experience. That's MHO, but I don't like Myrtle Beach proper as it's too darn overbearing, unless that's your thing. It might be fun for a 15-yr. old, though. I do a golf weekend every year in Hilton Head in April, and the weather is always fabulous...typically in the mid-70s to mid-80s. We go to Myrtle each summer for dirt cheap rates, but even then stay just north of the SC/NC line in Brunswick to avoid the mess that is Myrtle Beach.

almesq, I second the caddy for Pebble Beach. I couldn't get one myself because I requested one too late, but a couple I was paired with had one and he helped me just the same. I played there in 2000 just three weeks after the US Open was there. It is absolutely stunning...I hope you have good weather! I agree the stretch of holes from 6-11 (really can add 4 and 5) along the ocean are stunning, and then 17 will stir up the Tom Watson memories (I almost holed out from the same spot...saved my par, though!) and 18 is the best ending to the best golf day you'll have. Your score will be immaterial by the time you finish. Be prepared for at least 5.5 hours, but the scenery and surroundings will more than make the time fly by.

It is some extra flying time, but Cabo San Lucas is a fabulous place to golf and visit during that time of the year. Golf, beach, desert, and beautiful scenery. There are many golf courses along the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. It is probably a 5 hour flight from Chicago....they will love Cabo, I go there twice a year myself.
