A great way to get to know a new place is to sample the food—and Greenwood has plenty of options. Greenwood has a tasty tradition of locally owned restaurants, serving everything from traditional Southern comfort food to a variety of international cuisine, so you’re sure to find something you love. And there are several comfortable hotels if you decide to extend your stay.
Sunburn is never in style, so stay safe on the lake and on the golf course with the right protection for your skin and your eyes. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Apply at least 15 minutes before going outside, reapply every two hours, and take along a hat and sunglasses. Pack a windshield sun shade to help keep your car's interior cool.
Get your car travel-ready with a few quick checkups. Test your lights, wipers, brake fluid and oil life. Be sure your transmission fluid, coolant and windshield washer fluid levels are at the full mark. If you’re due an oil change, take care of it before you hit the road. Clean out your car and add a trash receptacle. Make sure you know how to jump off a dead battery; add instructions to keep in the glove box.
Sometimes a simple life hack can make all the difference between a good trip and a great one. Clip a tablet to a sun visor or the back of a headrest for backseat riders’ entertainment. Pack napkins, plastic utensils, wipes, over-the-counter medications, a few resealable sandwich bags, and snacks stored in reusable, spill-proof containers. Invest in a multi-port charger to keep everyone’s devices ready to use.
The obvious essentials of golf balls, tees, ball markers and pencil, aside, there are other items that can make your day on the links easier. Be sure to take rain gear, water and snacks, sunscreen and bug spray. A towel is handy for cleaning mud off a ball, or your hands. Extra shoelaces have saved many a golf game; a carpenter’s nail is perfect for cleaning the mud out of grooves; and a bungee cord is perfect to replace that broken cart strap.
