I'll chime in here from the "First Coast" (Jacksonville area). First of all, great golf. Within a 40 minute drive from my condo are TPC Sawgrass, World Golf Village, Amelia Island and its several courses, and a host of good semi-private courses that I can recommend. Second, we are too far north for snowbirds (and spring training). So, golf is pretty much the same price all year round, resort courses excepted. Hotels, too, with the exception of perhaps late April to mid-June and the holidays. Third, if you made your base in Jacksonville Beach, where I live, the nightlife is non-stop, Wednesdays through Sundays, all year around. Its all 20 to 30 somethings (I'm 64, so I just watch the scantily clad ladies going from bar to bar). Plus, for a single guy, it is a fact that the percentage of ladies that are good looking is much higher in Florida that up north (where I'm from). So, have your travel guy check out hotels in Jax Beach (there's several, Marriott, Best Western, Four Points, Hampton Inn, etc.) and take your pick of the golf courses. If you do so and want to play the Stadium, I have a standing offer to Spys to host them at the discounted rate I get (still pricey, but couple hundred less than what you might otherwise get). As a matter of fact, I'm hosting a guy visiting from Scotland on the Stadium on Thursday that took up my offer from the 'other' site.
I'm also playing the Stadium tomorrow, as well. Mid-70s forecast.
