My wife's grandmother is turning 90 in January so we're going to take a week and a half off and drive to Georgia to go to the party.
I already have one day planned to go to Augusta and play, and maybe Charleston but not too sure about that yet, may just take the wife to the beach.
We plan on driving out I-20 through Shreveport, LA to Jackson, MS to Montgomery, AL and then up through Atlanta.
On the way back, we're going to visit other family in Tennessee, east of Knoxville and will be headed home along I-40, going through Nashville, Memphis and then Little Rock, AR.
What I'd like to hear from anyone is the absolute must play courses along the way. I will probably only have time for about two or three courses each way so they really have to be awesome courses. I mean like the type of course you listed in your top five in your profile.
Preferably, the type of course that isn't just your local course but one you wouldn't want to miss if you were the one driving through.
One other thing, I wouldn't mind playing with a local golfer either so I could maybe get some additional info as far as lines, blind holes, deep water, you know the kind of stuff that can really cost you extra time on the course.
I remember the first time I went to play in Colorado and picked out the courses I wanted to play. After the second day, I had a couple recomendations on a course that I skipped right over on paper. Now, every time I go to the mountains, it is on my list, I bet I've played Leadville close to ten times now, and it's beautiful with the Maroon Bells in the backdrop.
Thanks for any and all information you give me, I'd rather hear it from you than try to decipher how accurate someone elses description is in the course directory.
