Restaurant Review: Hooters Offers More Than a Nice View

Hooters reputation has long been secure. Attractive waitresses in tiny neon orange shorts, tight white tank tops, and the chain’s suggestive name successfully established the brand years ago.

But there is more to Hooters than a stable of hot waitresses, especially along Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand. Hooters was the forerunner for the wing craze that has swept America, the nation’s first nationally prominent restaurant that specialized in chicken wings. During Hooters

Tradition Club is a Myrtle Beach golf “sleeper.” Located on the South Strand, the layout doesn’t enjoy the high profile of some of its neighbors, but Tradition is an outstanding course, carved through the area’s native pine trees

I just realized how incredibly spoiled I am when it comes to golf.

Last week I played my first ever round of golf with rental clubs.  My clubs were swiped from my car the day before a round so I had to go with the clubs the golf course had available.
