Marsh Madness: Carolina Low Country on itinerary for this month


The Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island community and its Greg Norman designed course are on LINKS magazine's list of "Best for Value" golf communities.  I will re-visit the community in a couple of weeks.


Tell me where to go (which communities, that is)

    The long winter of my discontent is about to end.  I head south on Monday with wife and daughter for a school-break vacation in Pawleys Island, SC.  When they head back to Connecticut at the end of the month, I head deeper into a Low Country wilderness that is home to a staggering array of excellent golf communities along the coast near Hilton Head.  Many of these

Please let me know if you would like me to check out a particular community for you in the Low Country of South Carolina.

developments pop up consistently on golf magazines' best-of lists: Palmetto Bluff and Spring Island, for example, just made LINKS magazine's "Best of the Best" list.  Belfair, Berkeley Hall, Briar's Creek and Colleton River anchor the magazine's "Best for Golf" ratings.  And in the "Best for Value" category, I'm keen to visit Callawassie Island and Dataw Island, whose "Experience Dataw" package was explored here yesterday.
    I am giving myself five or six days to visit and review some of these well-regarded communities.  I may not have time for all of them; therefore, dear reader, if one of them is on your list, or any others in the area for that matter, please let me know and I will move heaven and turf to check it out for you.  That goes, by the way, for any communities in the Myrtle Beach area.  Grande Dunes, The Reserve Club in Pawleys Island and Wachesaw Plantation (Murrells Inlet) all made LINKS ' "Best for Value" list.  I know these communities well, but much has happened in the leisure residential market in the last few years.  I do not need much of an excuse to pay a few return visits.
