    My wife and I have two round trip tickets for anywhere in the continental US that we are planning to use in the next 30-45 days. We are thinking of a 5-6 day trip. Where should we go?

    I'll give some criteria:

    1. It has to be fairly warm. We are both single digit handicap golfers and would like to golf a fair amount. She is from Florida, so we would like to go somewhere else.

    2. We would also like to see some sights, so we're thinking about the Grand Canyon/Arizona/Vegas. However, we haven't decided yet.

    3. The budget is around $100/$200 per night, but I always love a good bargain.

    Anyone been on a great golf vacation lately?

    Is your budget must be for the room only.

    If so then I would say Az is the place to go for some great golf.

    If your budget is for the whole day then Az is out. It's currently the on season in Az and there aren't a lot of great bargains to be had.

    Besides some of the greens fess would wipe out that budget in a hurry.

    Golf is spendy all over the place, Vegas especially. Depends what you are willing to spend on green fees. Miami is nice though, San Diego too.

    How about Springdale, Utah, which is southwestern Utah, neat Zion, also not far from

    Grand Canyon
    Bryce Canyon
    Las Vegas

    Lots of golf, however not being a golfer, I cannot qualify how good the courses are there but I would imagine they would be close to some nice ones...

    ...getting back to "fairly warm"....you wouldn't know it today (it's cold EVERYWHERE) but San Antonio is a great area for year round golf. Your money will go a lot further in this area also. Plenty of things to do and see...and great food.
