Meredith Kirk: Hey guys, it’s Meredith and I’m out here at the beautiful Grande Dunes, having a lot of fun with a special group from Texas today, so come on out and join us.
Meredith: What’s your name?
Cayetano Silva: My name’s Cayetano Silva, I am president of TXAPA.
Meredith: You brought this entire group out here to Grande Dunes today?
Cayetano: I did, I did. There’s almost 70 of us, 70 plus of us today.
Meredith: I bet that everybody is loving you being president right now, bringing them out here.
Cayetano: Absolutely. It’s a beautiful place. Me and my wife have been out to Myrtle Beach and I actually have played several courses out here and so when it was my choice to come out to any location, I said, “Let’s do Myrtle Beach.”
Meredith: Awesome. Tell me about some of the other courses you’ve played in Myrtle Beach.
Cayetano: Caledonia, Dunes Golf & Beach Club, I guess it is. We’ve played Thistle. We’ve played Tidewater.
Meredith: Beautiful courses. Out of those that you mentioned, which one is your favorite?
Cayetano: My wife’s favorite is Caledonia, that’s it. Mine, I like them all, I’m a golfer, I love all of them. I love the Founders Group courses. I’ve tried play as many of those as I can too. The last time we were here, we did that.
Meredith: Right, well, they certainly have some of the best courses here on the beach.
Cayetano: That’s absolutely right.
Meredith: Here today, is this your first time playing Grande Dunes?
Cayetano: This is my second time. I came out in September and did a, let’s say a practice round, or a trial run and I loved it so I said, “This is what we’re doing.”
Meredith: You just had the best shot out of all the guys out here.
Speaker 3: Did you all get that on camera?
Meredith: Tell me a little bit, who are you down here with? What group are you in today?
Speaker 3: This is the Texas Hot Mix Asphalt Pavement Association and there’s a big group of us guys that we travel every summer.
Speaker 3: We’re glad to be here and had a great week so far.
Meredith: Yeah? What have you done here in Myrtle Beach?
Speaker 3: A lot of golf, good eating.
Meredith: Some restaurants, what were-
Speaker 3: Thoroughbreds is on top of my list right now.
Meredith: You got some money on the table? I mean, you’re from Texas. I know you all got some money on the table.
Speaker 3: That’s right, that’s right. I’m about 20 bucks ahead right now.
Speaker 3: Anytime, with this bunch, you can get a little bit of money in your pocket, be happy and go forward with it.
Meredith: Is this your first visit to Myrtle Beach?
Speaker 4: Yes.
