Hi Joyce - I can understand Florida's appeal to golfers. I have a friend from NY who moved there full time, and another from Toronto Canada now with a vacation home. Hawaii draws many of us from California.

'Sun is served daily' - I love it! I have friends who travel to FL to golf several times each year - they love that the weather always seems to cooperate with their tee-times!

Hi Joyce... no doubt your weather helps the golfers. Charlotte is a big golfing area, as well, but I've never looked up the statistics. Maybe I will now because you have me curious.

Lottie Kendall I can see why Hawaii would be a draw for California residents. Golfers love the fact that they can golf year round here in Florida.
