  • Ellen Gregory at the helm of The First Tee

     I’d heard about Ellen Gregory, the new executive director of the Carol S. Petrea Youth Foundation, and I even met her briefly during a photo session for the Future Generations Tournament (playing this Saturday, June 7, at St. James Plantation).

    I wanted to get to know this gal who is at the helm of four local chapters of The First Tee, plus the Carolinas Leadership Academy at Cinghiale Creek. Last week, Gregory and I had lunch, and then on Sunday night, June 1, I attended a donor reception at the Carolinas Leadership Academy and spent more time with her.

  • Golfers: Watch out for snakes, alligators and poisonous plants

     Golf has inherent dangers: back sprains, errant golf balls, clubs that fly out of sweaty hands, carts that can overturn on steep hillsides. 

    But on the Carolina Coast, other dangers lurk in the ponds, lakes, marshes and pine forests, and we need to be aware of them.

  • The playing lesson: Essential for golfers

     I am a driving range star. I can go to the practice range with a whole bucket of balls and hit them flawlessly. My drives are long and strong; my irons fly high and true. My wedges stick to the green.

    Then I go the golf course and lose it all. The ball goes right, it goes left, it bumps along the ground, killing worms and insects as it scuttles along. My driver soars like a wedge; my wedge chunks. My 7-iron shanks into the woods (ooops, I’m sorry I said the bad word).
