    2 Other couples along with my wife and I are planning a 2 week adventure. Anybody played any courses or know of any around the country, excluding Vegas and the southern Indiana area. ( We played most of these already.) We are planning to hit 3 or 4 locations.
    We had a blast doing Vegas in the fall.

    I haven't been there myself, but Beau Rivage in Biloxi looks awesome. You've got the RTJ Trail in Alabama that's near there. Lot's of great golf, and some beautiful resort/spas.

    I could easily do two weeks on the RTJ. No casinos, but like I say, Biloxi isn't that far.

    How are their golf courses? I checked out the website & they do look stunning, of course the rate is kind of stunning as well, $125-195 for a rd.

    I didn't check into it, but I wonder if you get a discounted greens fee if you are staying at the resort? It's weird how these places set up their fees. If I want to go to the indoor waterparks in the Wisconsin Dells, the daily rate is somewhere between $30-40 a person. Yet I can book a room for 2 nights for 4 people which will run me about $120 off season & it includes free access to the waterpark. It's only 30 minutes from my house so I feel odd about spending the night but for the price discount I can't beat it.

    Foxwoods looks nice. Haven't been up east in a long time. Thanks WI
    The wives like doing the SPA thing while we golf. Grand Victoria and Belterra are real close to me and have nice package deals.

    Don't have any experience outside of Vegas - but I can definitely give a big thumbs up to the JW Marriott there - the shuttle takes you just about anywhere.

    I've stayed at the Belterra a few times, but never played the course. Wanted to, but usually flew into town in the afternoon and went right to the tables, then left the next morning for rest of the weekend north of Cincy.

    Black Mesa and Paa Ko are awesome courses. Played them last March. Within the area of 1 hour to 2 hour drive are multiple Casino/Reservation/spa/courses. Twin Warriors complex comes to mind as one of the best. Check out New Mexico tourist website for more info. This area is an gem of the uncrowded golf destinations.

    I'm going to hit Black Mesa again this summer. Where is Paa Ko? Is that the one close to BM?

    We decided to to the east coast thing. Start at Hard Rock in FL, Jersey City, then Foxwoods. Will post dates (Late April early May.) when they are for sure and maybe some off us can get together and have some fun.

    Hard Rock in Tampa? LOL - the only "spa" you'll find here is the "happy ending" kind...:laugh: The casino itself is pretty nice, but Tampa (especially the east side, where the Hard Rock is) ain't resort country...

    There are some decent courses here, though.
