August is…

August is National Golf Month. While I don’t want to encourage anyone to get heat stroke, you can find a few, slightly cooler options Close-up of Golf Club and Golf Ballaround town. I would encourage you to check out Shankz Black Light Mini Golf or Top Golf in Spring. We have OnLocation videos of both spots that you can check out to get a flavor for what these places are all about. You can visit http://woodlandsrelogroup.com/on_location/view/22 for the video on Shankz or http://woodlandsrelogroup.com/on_location/view/5 to see about Top Golf!

imagesAugust is also National Water Quality Month. Water is a precious resource in Texas, especially in these hot months of summer. If you hadn’t already noticed, it is also hard to get a cool shower in the summer! Around here, the WJPA, or The Woodlands Joint Powers Agency  reports on water quality in The Woodlands – and set watering restrictions. For more information, visit http://wjpa.net/waterworks-news-blog/.

Some other days that are worth noting this month include:
