Kiawah, Pinehurst, Sea Island, Naples round out top five
Golf-loving readers (with a little spring fever, no doubt) voted for four weeks on their favorite golf destination and the southeastern USA took all five top spots.
Myrtle Beach took top honors, with its dozens of courses, lower latitude and beach setting on the Atlantic ocean. Kiawah Island, South Carolina and legendary Pinehurst, North Carolina landed in 2nd and 3rd place, for a Carolina trifecta. Neighboring Georgia took 4th with votes for lovely Sea Island, Georgia and balmy Naples, Florida - where golf is an option 12 months a year - snared 5th.
The home of golf - Scotland - landed in the top ten, and the reminder of the 10 winners were all west of the Mississippi. 7th place winner Maui is a little further west than the rest!
