Best golf trips (two days or more) I've ever taken:

1) Pebble Beach, of course. Duh.
2) Pinehurst. I'm lucky because my golf girlfriends and I live close by.
3) Hilton Head. Tons of courses to pick from, lots of good restaurants. Also, throw a rock at a group of golfers and one of 'em will have access to a condo there. Free place to stay = more golf.
And... I'm spent. Clearly I need to take more golf trips.

Jenn, go to Kohler and Bandon, and you will eliminate two of your three immediately.

Kiel, the 18th at Irish at Whistling Straits has no layup for the second shot. It is "wafer thin", as the waiter says in Monty Python. It is the dorkiest hole of the 72 at Kohler. I have no idea what Dye was thinking when he designed it.

Jennifer & Ron--

I'm talking about golf trips for a few hundred dollars for 3-4 days, not a few thousand. You two must travel in loftier circles than I.

As for the 18th at Whislting Straits, Ron, if you skull the ball 150 yards off the tee, there's a lot more room to lay up. Then you hit an easy 8-iron into the proper quadrant of that huge green. Two-putt bogey. Piece of cake.
