Myrtle beach is of no interest to me. We are not your typical tourists. All we want is relatively warm weather and a golf course that doesn't completely suck.

Colombia seems to be on the cusp of the good enough weather, isn't a 14 hour drive and isn't a tourist trap. We are not doing touristy things, just driving down, golfing, eating sleeping and going home.

Oak hills looks great to me

Why not Charleston/Isle of Palms/Beaufort?..all kinds of nice golf there; Wild Dunes is pretty stout. If you by some crazy chance have a friend in the military that can get you on base at Fort Jackson in Columbia - their golf course is decent.

while i have not driven to NY, i can say after numourous trips back home to WI that whatever google/AAA/etc says for travel time will be shy of the actual transit. Figure you gotta stop along the way for food/gas/rest areas, and possibly add in going thru mountains and any construction and winter weather mixed in along the way, i'd bet you are far closer to 14+ hours which can still be done in a day.

Of course if you have a car that needs little fuel, pack some snacks, and have cast iron kidneys, maybe you can shave an hour off that lol

anyhow enjoy your short trip down, regardless of the weather you may run into here, it will NOT be anywhere near as cold as you may be used to, and any potential snow is measured in flurries not feet.

You'll enjoy Columbia and if you stay in the Vista there will be plenty to do at night, too.

To the OP, here's some insight on Columbia from the Annual Manual published by the local Free Times newspaper. The writers have an objective way of talking about Columbia, and some of the pics are great.
