  1. I hear ya. My family on the northend of the East Coast tells me that the weather sucked most of the summer. And I hear it snowed in Lake Placid on oct 3. But here in South Carolina, we're still playing golf in shorts. I write a blog that shares golf courses deals in Myrtle Beach, as well as other deals on the Carolina coast. You might find it interesting.

  2. Just a little plug for a website I recently relaunched,, to promote San Luis Obispo (California Central Coast) Golf. Great golf, perfect weather, affordable, and uncrowded!! Volunteer, non-Commercial website.
