  • Making friends through golf: The Canadian Connection

    Canadians love Myrtle Beach, S.C., and the entire Grand Strand from Pawley’s Island to Southport. Many visit annually. Some even own vacation homes here because playing golf in February is not an option in Ontario. When the snows fall and cold winds blow, the Carolina Coast seems like a veritable paradise.
    The Grand Strand is often called the Golf Capital of the World. We have a year-round temperate climate, more than 100 great public golf courses. In addition, we have great restaurants, wonderful fishing, outstanding shopping and a fabulous beach.

  • Honoring a son: the ‘D.J.’ Dale Leo Clemmons Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament

    July 22, 2004, was the worst day of Dale Clemmons’ life. On that day, he and his wife, Rose, came face to face with the unimaginable horror that all parents fear.
    The death of a child.
    Dale Leo Clemmons Jr., affectionately known as D.J. to his friends and family, was a happy-go-lucky young man of 22 years, on the cusp of adulthood and the realization of dreams. He worked in his father’s landscaping business (Carolina Tree) in Supply. He had lots of friends. He loved kids and best of all—he would have his own child in just a few weeks.
