  • Ty (Grrrrrrrr) prowls at Brick Landing

    I’d heard rumors about him, whispers in the locker room, hushed conversations in the 19th Hole Grill. Was he really as good as they said he was? Did he really have that perfect swing? Could he hit 75 balls in a row without a miss? Did he possess the stamina to pound ball after ball in the 90-degree heat?

    The answer is a resounding, Yes!

    Ty Walker is the 2-year-old son of Brian and Crystal Walker of Brick Landing Plantation. I met him and his parents at the practice area last Thursday.

  • Sandpiper Bay continues renovations

    I like to hear about positive actions taken by our golf communities in the face of a down economy. It shows a belief in the long-term viability and profitability of the golf industry in Brunswick County.

    Sandpiper Bay Golf and Country Club is in the second phase of renovating it course. Last year, it installed new MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermudagrass on the Sand Nine. This summer, the process is continuing on the Piper Nine.

    Tim Tilma, the general manager of Sandpiper Bay, is delighted the ownership of the golf course complex is continuing with the renovation.
