    mr.hicksta's trek back to the east coast

    I've mentioned this in a few threads and wanted to make a separate thread for it because during my cross country trip next April I will be playing as much golf as possible. As of now, it's looking like we're going to take the southern route because my wife has family in TX and wants to stop in New Orleans. I would like to play golf with as many THPers as possible along the way and will use this thread to update when I'll be in certain locations and to arrange any gatherings.

    This is very tentative but as of now I'm thinking the trip will go like this (from a golf perspective).

    CA > AZ > TX > FL > NC

    I will be traveling in April (first 2 weeks tentatively) so the weather should be golf friendly on the route we're taking and I'm excited about meeting more THPers and catching up with folks I've already met. If anyone has any course recommendations please post them! And as my travel plans solidify I'll post the rough dates I'll be in each location.
