    I live on Maui.

    We have great courses in Hawaii.  Two best - Plantation at Kapalua, Maui, and The Prince at Princeville, Kauai.

    I have played the Kiawah island courses several times, there are 4 I think with the Ocean Course being the gem.  The other courses are good but I don't really care that much for the remote location of the resort.  There are at least 3 or 4 more that I feel are better.  Pinehurst has 9 courses at the resort with another dozen within 15 miles and a great clubhouse with food, lodging, etc. that is very nice.  Hilton Head has around 30 golf courses on the island and another 30 or so within 20 miles.  While Myrtle Beach is a little commercialized for me it has around 100 courses some of which are great.  You have to watch out though because from North Myrtle Beach all the way down to the south part where there are several great courses is 2 hours.  The TPC south of Jacksonville has 2 great courses and one of my favorite resorts, the World Golf Villiage down about 30 miles south of Jacksonville, FL has 2 great courses and a wonderful villiage with dining, shopping. hotels, etc. and another 4 or 5 good courses close by.

    There are great courses all overr the world..Ive played a few of the top 100. Very scenic and well kept. Not crazy about some of the greens fees, but I think someone is missing the point. By that Its the idea in the PGA that we have to have the best this and the best that. What ever happened to the good old community courses..They always have something stupid or quirky...Not always in the best condition, but the greens should always be well taken care of..Im lucky to have many of these type of courses within a 2 hours drive from  where I fees are seldom over 20$...some are even play and pay by honors..there is a can by the first tee..10$ is recomended...but to me  thats what golf is all about.

    One of the great and inexpensive places to play is in the state of Alabama.  About 15 years ago they took the state employees pension funds and developed, I think 7 now golf complexes throughout the state.  Robert Trent Jones did all the design work on the courses.  The clubhouses at each are indentical.  The complexes which are located all over the state, generally have 2 18 hole courses and an 18 hole par three course.  The par three course plays from 150 yards to 230 yards per hole, not an executive par three course.  The courses generally have 5 sets of tees and are color coded with a handicap range on the card so you can tell where you should play from.  The last time I played there you could buy a weekly pass for $129 giving you unlimited play on all courses for the week.  While the courses aren't all within 2 miles like Pinehurst, you can stay at each complex for 2 days and then drive to the next.  Birmingham is the center of Alabama and there are two complexes there and one in Gadsden, about 30 miles away.  The NIKE tour played their tour championship on the complex down in southeast Alabama, can't remember the town but it is where the University of Auburn is.  Great places to go play golf, a liitle remote but well worth it.

    I've played Turtle Bay before. I had to use rental clubs, and lost the Sand Wedge! Lucky, someone returned it in! lol
