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 for the video on Shankz or 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
