[Solved] Which courses for a week's trip in Oct. 2019?
Been to Myrtle 4 times but it's been years since I've been.
I turn 60 in November, so my wife has given me a week's trip.
Here's the proposed itinerary (accommodations at Barefoot Yacht Club):
Any changes you would make?
Day 1: TPC AM then Wachesaw East
Day 2 Caledonia then True Blue
Day 3 MBN West then KN (seeking a little bit of value with MBN West)
Day 4 Barefoot Fazio, replay somewhere at Barefoot
Day 5 Tidewater then the Dunes
Day 6 Grande Dunes, replay somewhere
Day 7 Arrowhead
Separate gripe: My group of 9 has 4 or 5 guys that always have "suggestions" or "what abouts" on the destination, courses, budget etc. Drives me crazy.
Wouldn't change a thing. Excellent course selection and groupings each day.
Great line-up! They only change I would think about is swapping out Wachesaw East for Willbrook or Tradition. It's been awhile since I've played Wachesaw but I remember there was a lot of housing and conditions were so-so. It's a challenging layout though.
That is a great plan. Wach East is your weakest. The Willbrook idea is good or
stop at Prestwick on your way back. Blackmoor is also a close to TPC option.
When booking 2 rounds a day, I recommend at least 6 hours between tee times, since
you never know when it will be a 5 hour round. Also look what time sunset is, if in Nov.
Since you have guys with suggestions, verify if they will pay for all that golf and if some
only want to play 18 holes some days. You could also only book 1 round some days and
plan on a replay rate for those who want to replay 0, 9 or 18.

My suggestion would bring plenty of band aids for the blisters you will get on your hands, and plenty of aspirin for the back pain.
That's a lot of golf right that.

Yes. Keep this line-up. Very good one.
Great selection of courses for sure, while agreeing totally with those of suggested you to switch Wachesaw East for Willbrook instead.
And as a second course to go with Grande Dunes, maybe World Tour or Pine Lakes (both are really close to GD) could be a good fit!
One thing is for sure : it will be a hell of a way to celebrate your 60th birthday and a pretty well deserved one!
Quebec City, Canada
I agree with the other poster and Supergilbys with the suggestions but if you choose not to change that would be a bad thing either.
Great lineup and look forward to your trip report!
