You just know when Spring has sprung along the Grand Strand.
After a week of temperatures in the low to mid 60's and abundant sunshine waking up the landscape, the snapping turtles start to merge and you see dozens of them perched on the grassy slopes of ponds. The camellias have been on full display for over a month, clusters of daffodil trumpets are releasing fragrance and the azaleas are starting to blossom.
But the big "tell" is golf. It's like March 1 rolls around and hibernation is officially over.
Walking around TPC Myrtle Beach today was a breath of fresh air. The course was in great shape. The grass was lush and green. And you could not help but notice, Dustin Johnson was in town. His golf tournament that is. (Earlier in the week he was in town along with Darius Rucker and Hootie and the Blowfish band members, inducted into the Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame.)
The 4th Annual Dustin Johnson Junior World Golf Championship was underway as some of the best female and male junior golfers in the world competed in a PGA tour-like experience. The event was free to attend.
We overheard an alligator was spotted in one of the ponds on the course.
Spring has sprung, indeed!
