     Greg Hensley, charter member of The First Tee of Brunswick County and now a Professional Golf Management student at Campbell University, is living the dream. He is on a six–month internship at Bandon Dunes Resort in Oregon.

    How cool is that?

    If you’ve never heard of Bandon Dunes, you’re probably not a golfer. This is a golf course resort on the coast of Oregon that has grown into a world-class golf experience. Folks travel to Oregon from all parts of the world to play the five Bandon Dunes courses.

     The fall fishing has finally fired off. King mackerel, Spanish mackerel, redfish and large schools of false albacore have resided off our coast, providing near shore anglers with some of the best fishing they have had all year.

    Can you hear that?

    Let us ease around the bend to investigate what is causing all that commotion.

    In Shallotte, the course flows through old pine forests and small lakes and creeks, with lots of waterfowl and one huge alligator named Charlie. Built in 1967 by Dr. Ben Ward, Brierwood is the oldest golf course community in Brunswick County. 

  • Decisions about when to go on...

     If fishing runs in your veins, now is the time to be planning that fishing trip. The availability of baitfish is unbelievable right now. Mullet and menhaden are thick from the waterways to the beachfront. Several of the shallow creeks are full of shrimp, too. The predator fish are lurking and the action should get stronger as more cold fronts pass through out area. We just experienced our first good cool down and the fish are starting to stack up.

     The is an awesome place to live. Brunswick County is filled with the most generous, caring people in the world. There is a real sense of community service and patriotism here.

    Two weeks ago, 10 of our area golf pros played 100 holes of golf in one day to raise money for Folds of Honor. Each week there are charity golf events for every cause from breast cancer, to Communities in Schools to hospice care. It’s impossible for me to cover them all, but I try to single out a few each year to showcase the length and breadth of our charity golf tournaments.
