Fall into Golfing

It is Fall and this post is all about Golfing.
Pretty funny since I've never even held a golf club.

Golf is really big here in Myrtle Beach.  We are said to have
over 100 golf courses in our area.  I think they make a beautiful
addition to our landscape.   People come from all over to play on our
courses.....amateurs and pros alike.

We are big on Mini-Golf.  Yep, we have one of those on almost
every block.  That is because we are a tourist town right on the beach featuring
many outdoor activities.
We even have an annual mini golf tournament here.  
It is taking place right here, right now, this weekend.

Season 7 "Bachelor" star Charlie O'Connell
This year the tournament is being held at the
Wow, this place is famous.  

Hawaiian Rumble has been featured as one of the "golfiest, must-see places" in America by Golf Magazine. It has also been featured in many national TV shows, and newspaper and magazine publications. For example, in 1992 Crook & Chase along with the Nashville Network televised their entire show from here. In l993 Dennis Hopper and Tom Derringer filmed a scene from the movie Chasers. In 1999 Home and Garden TV did a segment on their travel show. In 2002 NBC Today Show with Matt Lauer and Katie Couric covered the Masters. On May 22, 2003 the Travel Channel filmed Hawaiian Rumble for the Top Ten Miniature Golf Courses in the United States..

Golf Bag
While you are there check out the 1926 collection.
These stamps are from the original art work done in 1926 by
the owner's mother.  They are gorgeous and I have them all.
