Today is the second day of Spring! Can you believe it? If you are in North Myrtle Beach, you probably agree that it doesn’t feel much like Spring…well today at least. It is quite windy and chilly outside, but we sure are glad to see the sunshine!

If you are looking to spend some time outside in the sun, be sure to bundle up and enjoy a healthy kale smoothie with pineapple and banana. All you need is ½ cup of coconut milk, 2 cups stemmed and chopped kale or spinach, 1 ½ cups chopped pineapple (about ¼ medium pineapple) and 1 ripe banana, chopped! Combine the coconut milk, ½ cup water, the kale pineapple and banana in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute, adding more water to reach the desired consistency. Source:

Our students enjoy all four seasons, but they like Spring time a lot. Over the weekend they played in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour, Hilton Head Junior Shootout. All the boys played well and we are very proud of them. We would like to congratulate Carlos, on winning in his division. Way to go! The students have a little bit of time off before playing in their next tournament. This is good because it gives them time to concentrate on their schoolwork and practice on their long game, short game, putting or bunker play.

On April 16-17, they will be playing in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour; College Prep Series at Furman University in Greenville, SC. If you would like more information about this tournament, please visit

In May, they will head to Evans, Georgia to play in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour; Bartram Trail Junior Classic which will be held May 7-8. If you would like more information on this tournament, please visit
