  • Golf Gab: Seeing Brunswick County with new eyes

    I have the most fun when someone who has not been here before comes to visit us. Our guests are always slack-jawed with admiration and awe at the beauty of Brunswick County. They exclaim over our golf courses, our beaches, our seafood, seabirds and salt-marches. They love the friendliness of our people, how they can go to a grocery store or dry cleaner and everyone talks to you. 

    Two weeks ago, two friends from New Jersey arrived for a visit. John Saporito and his wife, Barbara, after several years of invites, finally came to visit us.    

  • The First Tee

    The First Tee program fosters nine core values to be used in golf and which come in handy in all other areas of life. These core values have caused parents and teachers alike to embrace the First Tee program.

    In the 2009-2010 school year, The First Tee of Brunswick County initiated a character education program with the Brunswick County Schools. The School Day Program was a pilot program that included the fourth-graders of six elementary schools “local” to the home facility of the organization located in Shallotte.
