trip ideas request

Hey gang,

So I am looking at setting up our annual trip for next summer for 8 guys.  Traditionally we go to Pinehurst (past 15 years), but now the group has thought about expanding our horizons.  We are looking at playing some obviously nice courses while keeping the cost relatively cost friendly (under $1,500ish).  We are all on the East Coast but we are not opposed to travel.  Here are some ideas so far:  1.  Rent an Airbnb and play Bethpage Black and Red (one of our guys is a NY resident so he could book the tee time for black) and hit a few other courses in NY or NJ.  2.   Play Ocean City Maryland courses (we are only about an hour from there).  3.  Greenbrier WV  4.  TPC Sawgrass

We are open to anything except Myrtle Beach, we have done that too,  if there is any trips that you have gone on that are worth looking into please let me know your thoughts!  Thanks Spys

Pinehurst is hard to top, as I know you're aware. 

What about the RTJ Trail? Another up and coming destination they can be had for a good price is Top of the Rock in Branson,MO.   If you haven't heard of it, Google it.  The views and courses are stunning.

Good suggestion - there are some quality courses in and around Top of the Rock. Tiger is actually working on a design near Big Cedar Lodge that pays tribute to Payne Stewart. Good courses in Springfield too.

Lots of options. How many rounds in how many days?

RTJ trail as mentioned is a great option for variety and proximity to multiple courses.

Summer time in NY/NJ is going to traffic loaded especially weekends.

If distance isn’t an issue San Diego has a bunch of courses within a 45-60 minute drive of just about anywhere in the SD area.

If thinking about Florida the stream song resort gets good reviews

These are all great ideas, thanks guys.  We are looking at playing 4-8 rounds in maybe a five day trip.  I know it's vague but I need to make sure everyone in the group is on the same page with rounds.  Top of the Rock looks great but the RTJ Trail seems like more our direction.  I will also look into Streamsong, a guy at my club mentioned it as well.  I have a lot of time, so if you guys go on any trips that you absolutely loved, let me know.  Thanks again!!!

My brother-in-law myself and the rest of the wedding party, went to Mesa/Scottsdale for my B-in-law's Bachelor party. We went in late Feb, early March. We were able to fit 4 rounds in, 3 spring Training games, and an NHL game in over 6 nights 5 days flew in on Fri night, and left Wed., all for about 250-280 per night not including meals or tickets to the games. It would be much less expensive without the MLB, and NHL games, but the tickets weren't expensive and got to see some good and upcoming ball players. GO CUBBIES! Flights aren't that expensive, you can get good deals on the courses, it's not unbearably hot yet, and the courses were all amazing.

There are packages out there for unlimited golf that I just saw for 4 days and 3 nights for $175 a night.

Just a thought, that you could look into.

It's difficult to get to but Bandon is a must visit. Kohler is supposed to be awesome as well.

Sand Valley/Erin Hills in Wisconsin is an incredible trip. Could be combined with Blackwolf Run as well. It'd stay in budget and you'd be extremely happy you went.

TPC Sawgrass would have my vote.  The Players is my favorite tournament to watch after The Masters so it's at the top of my bucket list.  There are a lot of great courses all over the place, but for a special trip I would be partial to courses you get to see on TV.

If you don't watch any of their stuff already, I highly recommend watching Tourist Sauce and Strapped on the No Laying Up YouTube channel. Both series are all about taking trips with buddies - Tourist Sauce is on the more extravagant/expensive side and Strapped is all about golf on a budget. Hopefully you'll see something you like and at the very least should get the juices flowing for a good trip idea.

Yesss!!! Lol. Their trip to Baton Rouge and New Orleans is probably my favorite as I have family down there and play Santa Maria ever time I'm in town. I wish the Strapped Boys could have had better weather for it.

My mom has a newspaper clipping somewhere of Phil Landes (aka Big Randy) pinning my brothers shot to the backboard in a college basketball game.  I need to go find it and share in on social media with the Strapped Boys and NLU crew.

I intend to find it and several other things but my mother is something of a "hoarder."  It won't be as easy as it may sound and I have procrastinated as a result of the severe anxiety felt when thinking of the task at hand!  🤣
