Ask Travelin’ Joe: San Antonio and Myrtle Beach
I’m planning a golf vacation to San Antonio, Texas. What are the best courses for my money? What about great places to eat?
Lori Collins, Atlantic Beach, Fla.
If Travelin’ Joe knows anything, it’s where to find courses worth playing and food worth eating! For golf try The Quarry ($59-$99; 210-824-4500, quarrygolf.com) and Pecan Valley ($30-$51; 210-333-9018, pecanvalleygc.com), which hosted the 1968 PGA Championship.
My family and I are going to North Myrtle Beach this summer. Are there any beautiful courses there that are on the cheaper side?
Brandon Henshaw, Royersford, Pa.
Summer golf in Myrtle Beach is steamier than a Paris Hilton home movie, but at least it’s a bargain. A perfect example is Oyster Bay Golf Links (910-579-3528, legendsgolf.com), a Dan Maples design in Sunset Beach that costs only $68 until September 3.
Travelin’ Joe recommends you take the money you save and tackle a dozen oysters at Dirty Don’s (843-448-4881, dirtydonsoysterbar.com; $7.95) in North Myrtle Beach.
