If you visit August/Aiken area in Georgia, South Carolina - you can put together your own "holiday" and visit several of the courses in the area - beautiful in my opinion. Public courses or semi private.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the mecca for golfing - hundreds of courses. If you go during the winter months it can be cold, but the fees are reduced a lot.

We have a lot of courses in Tampa/Bradenton/Sarasota - but the green fees go up to $40-70/round during the winter. The same courses are $20 during the summer, but it gets very hot/humid here.

I love many of the courses in upstate NY. You probably can travel to the country and play all kinds of courses there.

If you interested in a good golf school, the David Leadbetter Academy in Orlando runs all kinds of specials for a two-day mini school. There's a hotel on location called the Omni. Very good results for me - attended last summer. Highly recommend it. The instruction is great.

Btw, use the website www.golfnow.com to see what the current prices are for tee times. We in Florida use the site for a lot of our courses.

Sure was something that happened to my fav golfer Camilo Villegas. I don't know if anyone saw it but here is what happened. Dave Andrews, a retiree from New Hampshire, said he was watching the tournament with some friends in Florida, where he spends his winters, when he saw Villegas move a divot on the 15th hole with his club while the ball Villegas struck was still rolling.

Villegas should have assessed a two-shot penalty, but instead signed an incorrect scorecard and was subsequently disqualified.Andrews said he sent tweets to the PGA Tour and The Golf Channel before Villegas finished his round.

^^only in golf could that happen, could you imagine calling Ed Hockuley during an NFL game and telling him he missed a call?

Also, MC, this is your thread, so Ill ask do you mind if I rename it the "CD Golf thread?" Since the original topic seems to be put to bed

I normally like Ian Poulter but when He and other golfers call the spectator who tweeted in the violation a snitch well my respect goes down for them. Sergio will have to work back some character in my mind since his cup spitting incident.

Of the players in the Maui field this week, Ian Poulter may have been the most outspoken critic of Andrews. Poulter posted close to a dozen tweets about what happened. Among them:


"An armchair official tweeted in to get Camilo DQ, what is wrong with people have they got nothing better to do."

"Yes the rules r the rules it was a mistake on Camilo's behalf, he didnt know he had done wrong, but people calling in, no 1 likes a snitch."


"Case closed yes he should have been punished but it's a shame it wasn't before he signed his card. Came down to an armchair official."
