Close Proximity of Golf Courses

Sam

Can any one tell me of places in the United States that have a great deal of golf courses within a close proximity. I'm aware of Hilton Head Island but I'm trying to gather a list of places to choose from for a potential golf vacation.

    Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Tuscon, Las Vegas, Pinehurst area. The list can go on and on. Depends on what you are looking for and how close you want the proximity of the courses to be to each other. All of those mentioned have more than a few top shelf courses close to each other. There are many more areas where you'll find the same thing, but these are all a great place to start.

    Monterey Peninsula in Northern California. Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Spanish Bay, Poppy Hills, Pacific Grove are all within 10 minutes of each other. Add Bayonet & Blackhorse also near by and Pasatiempo about an hour away.

    I like the recommendations Doug E provided. I also like the Palm Desert/Palm Springs/la Quinta area. Especially in the spring before it gets hot.

    I believe the Phoenix/Scottsdale area has the most golf courses per square mile in the U.S. Not to mention it's beautiful there almost Year round.

    Sam,

    Fort Myers Florida area is claimed to have the highest golf course per capita density in the States. It a nice area, a little overgrown, but nice none the less.

    I live in Mt Pleasant, SC which is across the river from Charleston. The east coast of South Carolina is a great place to play golf. You can play Hilton Head, Bluffton, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach. Santee, Florence, and Aiken are on the outskirts of Charleston one to two hours and then three hours away is Pinehurst and Southern Pines, NC.

    Also worth mentioning is the Robert Trent Jones trail in Alabama. Loads of great courses all over the state and not as pricey as some locations. Vegas is the most brutal for pricing, gouging the tourists.

    Tough to beat Palm Desert/Palm Springs/la Quinta area and Scottsdale, AZ area.

    Played in Palm Springs then drove down to San Diego to play Torrey Pines. Lots of courses in Palm Springs. Gets pretty warm in the later summer months.

    When are you looking to play? That will make a massive difference on the places I'd recommend.

    Chick you forgot about one of the greatest resorts and its right in your own backyard, Kiawah Island!!!!!

    Kiswahili is fantastic and also love the Sand Hills/Pinehurst area, just awesome. If you want more golf than you can handle then Myrtle is a must. So many options.

    Myrtle Beach, they have close to 80 golf courses within 60 miles of eachother!

    Gulf Shores


    Kiva Dunes
    Gulf Shore Country Club - open to public
    Peninsula Golf Club
    Craft Farms
    Lost Key
    Lakewood Country Club - part of the RTJ Trail


    Gulf Shores puts you close enough to Destin and close enough to some RTJ courses as well if you want to make an all day event of it.

    Kiva is probably my favorite course - I have shot my best round and worst round ever there.

    Peninsula has a great view on hole 13 or 14 with the bay - take time to walk the bridge and soak it all in.

    Lost Key is called Lost Ball - put the driver away and keep the ball in play - you will post a good score if you do that. This is an Arnold course.

    Gulf Shores Country Club - best value - and a very nice course - they have a 600 yard par 5 that has always played into the wind for me.
