Geezer Golf in the Mid Atlantic

THIS EMAIL FROM AN ACQUAINTANCE LANDED in my inbox during Thanksgiving week:
I've done it. At age 70-1/2, I have taken up the game, and am now officially hooked. It appears to agree with my genetic athletic makeup. 
After only 60 days, I can reasonably expect a par or two and 3-4 bogeys in nine holes .... The rest is ugly, but I continue to progress. 
I'd love to buy you coffee sometime and yak about golf for geezers. Plus, I'd like your take on good places for people like me to play vacation golf and actually enjoy it.
If you were me, what would you tell this new geezer golfer? Where would you send him in the Mid Atlantic (Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina region of United States) or beyond for an enjoyable golf vacation?
