Ever since I first heard about the course, I've wanted to make a trip up to the Cincinnati area to play Idlewild...and I think it might actually happen this next Spring/Summer! I'm pretty sure that the trip up there will include stops in Nashville, TN and maybe Louisville or Bowling Green, but I'm having a hard time deciding on what route to take back to Texarkana, TX. Looking for a little feedback on what route would pass near the best courses. I live adjacent to AR and LA and play in both states fairly often, so I'm skipping those states on the way in and back. Which route would you take?
Route #1 is to head back West from the 'Nati and pass through St. Louis or Kansas City, then probably down through Tulsa, OK.
Route #2 is to head South from Cinci down 75 and stop in Knoxville, TN before going to Atlanta, GA...then continue West through Birmingham/Tuscaloosa, AL or Jackson MS before passing straight through N Louisiana on the way back home.
Route #3 is to basically take the same route back home and stop in the cities I didn't get to stop at on the way up, which could include Bowling Green, Lexington/Fayette KY, Jackson TN, and maybe Memphis.
Chime in however you want...all feedback/ideas/etc is much appreciated! Also, if anyone lives in these cities and would be willing to offer up some floor space that would be awesome; not exactly sure when this trip will materialize, but keeping travel cost down is a must for me as I'll most likely be travelling alone.
