  • Mixed golf can be fun

     Mixed golf can be a lot of fun, or it can also be a pain.

    I’ve played in a lot of mixed events and I’ve seen it all. Some golf tournaments were absolute nightmares; others were a lot of fun.

  • Golfing couple: Mark and Marilyn Greenfield of Carolina National

     Over the years, Golf Gab has featured various pros, golf course superintendents, instructors, club managers and golf course designers.

    Each fall, we run several articles about our men’s and women’s club champions in conjunction with the annual Brunswick Beacon Tournament of Champions.

    Last week I had a brainstorm: Wouldn’t it be fun to write about some of our local golfers, our amateurs, who live and play the game in Brunswick County?

  • International golf coming here

     Golf in our area is going international.    

    The Sea Trail Golf Resort was recently purchased by the Chinese and they are investing heavily into regenerating and restoring the complex. They hope to attract players from China, who will then come for vacations and perhaps later buy real estate.   

    Now, the Myrtle Beach World Amateur has scheduled an annual golf contest between China and the U.S.

  • New owner brings new vision to Sea Trail

     Sea Trail Golf Resort and its three fabulous golf courses have long been a favorite with me and my family. Twenty-five years ago, the Maples Course opened, followed by the Byrd Course, then the Jones.

    Odd names, perhaps, but not when you realize the courses were designed by three of the most pre-eminent golf course architects in the world: Dan Maples, Willard Byrd and Rees Jones. Each was a pleasure to play and they were always on our list of courses when we came down to the Grand Strand on family vacations.

  • Rivers Edge to host 2014 Tournament of Champions

      

    We’ve come a long way, baby.

    I’m referring to the Brunswick Beacon Tournament of Champions. The first event was held at Tiger’s Eye in Ocean Ridge in December of 2004. Our men’s and women’s champions from 11 local clubs competed over two days of medal play. Marie Strickler of Carolina Shores won the women’s division; Richard Curwen of St. James won the men’s.
