    MEADOWLANDS MISSFITS

  • Playing a real gem of a course at Jumping Brook in New Jersey

    There are many fabulous benefits in knowing how to play golf. The best of these benefits occurs when you are invited to play at a friend’s golf course.

    This is not true of other sports or activities. If your best friend is a bowler and he invites you to bowl with him, that’s great, but all bowling alleys are the same, measuring 41.5 inches wide by 60 feet long.

  • Handicap scores allow beginning and experienced golfers to play together

    Lots more folks are beginning to play golf in Brunswick County.

    Kids are learning golf through The First Tee or summer golf camps. Other youngsters come to visit grandma and grandpa (who own a home right on a golf course) and soon, Granny and Poppy have their grandchildren out on the practice tee and on the course.

    In addition to our junior golfers, hundreds of new retirees are moving to our coastal communities. Many of them dreamed of playing the game of golf but never had the time to get involved.
