From where you are located I would suggest Myrtle Beach. Plenty of package deals and over 100 courses in the area. Just Google "Myrtle Beach Golf packages". You will find quite a few providers. I do a trip there every couple of years. I'll play two average courses 3.5 to 4.0 star rated courses to warm up and then two 4.5 star courses. (18 holes a day). 

Some throw in free lunch or free afternoon replay rounds. Tee time prices vary so you can save money by picking an early or late time. Between 9 am and 1 pm are the peak rates.

 

 

I've been going on group trips to Myrtle for about a decade.  Even started organizing another trip myself.  If there is a better value, I'd be shocked.  One of my groups drives mostly from the DC area, and the other flies from WV, KY, so I imagine it would work for you as well.

I'll be there starting this Saturday for a week of golfing.

I concur that the Pinehurst area off the resort can be played without the need for a 2nd mortgage.    Pine Needles, Mid Pines, Talamore, Mid South, and the incredible Tobacco Road are all right there.

Santee, South Carolina. One hour from Charleston. Five top quality courses within 10 minute drive. Inexpensive accommodations. Lots of focus on golf.

Before my wife and I relocated about 15 years ago, some friends and I made this trip every spring. Incredible bang for the buck. Very good golf, inexpensive accommodations, whether it's AirBnB or hotel. Some pretty solid local food options as well. Don't sleep on Santee. Give it a solid look.

Pinehurst can also be done in a very cost effective way as well. I'd put Longleaf up against anything I have ever played anywhere. For less than $60 after lunch, it's a steal. Longleaf is obviously not #2, #4, Mid Pines or Pine Needles, but it's exceptional. Hyland, Whispering Pines and Foxfire are a lot of fun to play. The new owners of Whispering Woods are turning that place into something that should be experienced. I played it several years ago and hadn't given it a second thought until this spring. Someone I value the opinion of quite highly told me to be sure to play it before leaving town. We were pleasantly surprised at what we found. The new owners should be commended. I'm not a big fan of Talamore but most people love it. And of course, Tobacco Road is just up the highway.

Some may disagree with this but I’ve found that Biloxi MS can be done on a budget with quality courses. Stay either nearby or find a casino deal. Go in the summer (yes it will be hot and humid). For $125 you can play unlimited at the preserve golf club one day and it includes a meal. Then do a twilight or 2 rounds at Grand Bear which wouldn’t break the bank either. If you have any money left over, the casinos will gladly take it. The casino food and buffets are actually reasonable compared to other resorts and casinos.
