They're not always easy to spot because they look and talk a lot like us, so we must be vigilant. Look for unnaturally pale skin, colorful, flowered shirts – usually Hawaiian – and affable personalities.

And of course, they will occasionally give themselves completely away with their signature "eh?" at the end of a sentence.
 
Club Link, Canada's largest owners and operator of golf clubs, has continued its recent buying spree in Florida with the acquisition of the 54-hole Palm-Aire Country Club in Pompano Beach
 
The company now has 11 18-hole equivalent golf courses in Florida with a combined membership of more than 4,500 members. 
 
It is spreading the word to all those Canadian golfers: Come on down!
 
"This acquisition furthers our promise of offering our more than 20,000 Canadian members the opportunity to golf 365 days a year," Club Link CEO Rai Sahi said in a press release."
 
That's great for Florida golf clubs, obviously. It's also a good chance for Florida golfers to experience Canadian golf; the company offers reciprocal play with "preferred pricing" to its members, good for all its courses in all locations.
 
In the Fort Lauderdale area, Club Link now owns Palm-Aire, the 36-hole Woodlands Country Club and Heron Bay. Its first foray into Florida was in September of last year when it bought five 18-hole equivalent courses and two academy courses in Sun City Center.
 
The company owns 60 courses in 44 locations primarily in Ontario and Florida.
