G – minus 137 days to Myrtle Beach!

#1tee Dye Course at Barefoot

Dateline – February 10, Rockville, MD.  Cabin fever has officially set in and is killing me.  Thoughts of summer golf in Myrtle Beach are exacerbating the symptoms and we just booked our trip from June 17 – 24.   We’re staying at The Legends with their outstanding accommodations, practice facilities, and service.  Trip details:

Day 1Oyster Bay.  Just swapped in this awesome play along the coast in Sunset Beach, NC for Heritage, as the latter has scheduled summer aeration one week in advance of our arrival.

Day 2Grand Dunes Resort Club.  I’ve never played there but have heard great things.  Anyone with playing tips, please send them along.  Full course review coming.

Day 3Leopard’s Chase.  Played it once a few years ago when my group was looking for an afternoon replay.  Loved it.  We had the whole course to ourselves and had one of the most enjoyable relaxing rounds of golf ever.  Full course review coming.

Day 4:  Tidewater.  Afternoon round only at our highest end course.  Awesome looking track adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Again, never played this one; send tips!  Full course review coming.

Day 5The Legends – Heathland.  Great links style course and right on location.  Will try to grab an afternoon replay at Parkland to cover the main three courses.

Day 6The Legends – Moorland.  Rough and tumble P.B. Dye design and probably the hardest course at the Rt. 501 trifecta; just a great play.  Kicked my butt last year but I’m game for a rematch.

Next Saturday is supposed to be showery and 58 degrees in the DC area and is looking pretty good right about now!  Anyone want to play?
