  • Making use of Christmas gifts

     

    By Darren deMaille

    If you are a golfer, chances are you were given some gifts this year related to golf, some good and maybe some not so. I am a difficult person to shop for, as I usually have everything I need related to golf; however, this year there were a few great gifts that Santa brought to me. Now, two weeks post Christmas, it has given me time to make use of these gifts. Here are my reviews. Please feel free to share your reviews with me or stop by the DD Golf Academy to show them to me.

     

  • With the new year, begin a new you

     

    I thank Elsa Bronstein for the wonderful introduction last week and her service with the Beacon for the last several years. She left big shoes to fill and I hope I can bring the same enjoyment she has given to so many people over the years. I wish her the best of luck with her new ventures and may she continue to touch people as she has done.

  • Darren deMaille new golf columnist for the Beacon

    Exciting news for the readers of Golf Gab: You will have a new golf columnist starting in January. Darren deMaille will be taking over and I’m thrilled. 

    I met deMaille last week for lunch and we had a great visit. He is one terrific guy, a PGA pro and a teacher of the game of golf who owns the Double D Golf Academy in Little River, S.C.

    In addition to his golf credentials, he has written about golf for newspapers in Connecticut, New York and Florida. He recently published an article in Golf Digest about starting a teaching academy. 

  • New management team at Brick Landing

    A new management team has taken the reins at Brick Landing, and it is truly a “team.”

    Trey and Jennifer Ernstes are now in charge of operations. They are a married couple with a beautiful 2-year-old daughter (Jordyn). Jennifer is the general manager and Trey is the director of golf operations.

    “Basically, I report to my wife, but I think we can handle it,” joked Trey Ernstes as I chatted with the two of them last week. “This is a great opportunity and we’re going to make it work.”

  • Arnie part of a memorable foursome

    By Thomas Ryan Paul

    The custom we follow when a great golfer dies is to cite statistics. And so it is with Arnold Palmer. Four Masters, one U.S. Open and two Open championships in seven years from 1958 through 1964. A memorable run, the likes of which few have achieved.

  • Lockwood Folly: 20 years of helping others

    Lockwood Folly is an exciting place these days. It is the only member-owned course in Brunswick County. The normal high level of activity has been enhanced by new greens that were installed this past summer, and by the ongoing construction of a new 16,000 square-foot clubhouse.

    This year marks the 20th year of hugely successful charity events, many of them focused on breast cancer. Other charities that have received the largess of Lockwood are Awareness of Autism, Hospice Closer to Home and Ovarian Cancer Research.
