  • The Beachcombers: Year-round fun and friendly competition

    There are a couple dozen golf groups in Brunswick County. Some are the LGA’s and the MGA’s of local golf clubs. Some are aligned with particular organizations like the VFW or the Elks Clubs. 

    Still others are ad hoc groups that formed years ago because of friendships and/or proximity. Many of these golf groups have been around for 10-20 years or longer. 

    One such group that plays year-round (Brrrrrrrr) is the Beachcombers. They have a fascinating and often hilarious history and a story that begs to be told.

  • Golf is not a contact sport, so learn the rules

    After watching the Pittsburgh Steelers play a less-than-sterling game Sunday, I am ready to concentrate on golf once more. Our Steelers’ flags, signs, plaques, shirts, plates and napkins are packed away in the attic waiting for the next football season. My Terrible Towel and my Steelers’ earrings are in the bottom drawer of my dresser.
