The tables and chairs on the veranda are the place to ogle and be ogled all week.
Even if you have access to the area which few do grabbing a table is more competitive than the tournament itself. Our tip: "Hey, everyone, Tiger and Arnie are sumo wrestling on the driving range!" When the place clears out,
you're in the money.
Order of the day
There are hundreds of clubs that have vastly tastier food (and a more diverse menu). But who cares? When you plop down on the veranda you're so whipped from walking that what you need is a cozy chair and comfortable food. Our suggestion: Sweet tea, $1.50, Hickory smoked ham and cheese, $5.50, and Peach Cobbler a la mode, $3.50.
