Help make them returning fans

Speaking of the Masters,
something we who live in and around Greenwood can and should keep in
mind is that there will indeed be an increase in traffic, larger crowds
seeking a meal after a long day on the greens and more than a handful of
people who are not quite as familiar with every intersection and road
In short, be a bit more alert and keep your Southern charm at
its highest. Be a little more forgiving of the driver who does not seem
to know where he’s going. After all, he’s helping fill the city and
county coffers by spending money here.
Mainly, just keep a big smile
on your face, be polite to strangers and when you see someone with a
tell-tale sunburn or wearing a tell-tale Masters logo shirt or hat
welcome them to town and tell them how much you hope they’re enjoying
their time here as well as in Augusta.
Remember, you’re as much an
ambassador for this area as anyone else. We’d all do well to keep that
in mind if we want to continue reaping the benefits of the annual golf
fan who comes to stay with us a few days.
