  • Golfer wows local crowd

    On June 16, Dennis Walters came to the Reserve Club at St. James Plantation and delighted a large crowd of kids, parents and retirees. There were gasps of amazement, chuckles of amusement and even a tear or two as the paraplegic golfer worked his magic with precision golf shots, humor and a personal story of hope. His famous dog Bucky was an integral part of the performance.

  • Isley finishes second in N.C. Open

    The 46th Toshiba North Carolina Open had everything a major championship should have in the Carolinas: a dynamic group of competitors, a challenging course and a dramatic finish. 

    David Rogers, an apprentice out of Berkeley Hall Club in Bluffton, S.C., caused the drama.  

    Although he’d scored consistently throughout the three-day tournament, Rogers was still flying under the radar coming into the final round June 10 at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis.

  • New medical procedure puts local golfer back on the course

     John Mills started playing golf when he was a kid growing up in Scotch Plains, N.J. As he caddied at local courses, he learned to play the game and to love it.   

    John worked hard, got married and raised a family. During those busy, active years, John dreamed about the day he could retire, relax and play golf to his heart’s content. 

    As the years passed, the focus of his dreams became Brunswick County, and eventually the dream materialized into a beautiful home on the seventh hole of the Irwin Course at St. James Plantation.
