Walkers Rejoice! Sun Mountain Has Your Back

I won’t get into the debate on economics of golf cart rentals and health benefits of walking, but it’s estimated that roughly 70% of golf rounds in the USA are played in golf carts, and that number seems to be growing. Part of the reason is that many courses are forcing people to rent a […]

Experience the Daytona Beach Double Feature

The Daytona Beach area has been home for me since 1997, and one of the reasons I’ve been here for 20 years is because I love the combination of small town feel with big city amenities that are unique to Volusia County and its 500,000 residents.
