    Here is my quote for North Carolina: “First in flight and last in everything else.”

  • Ladybirds: Fantastic golfing fun

    Brunswick County is a great place for golf. We have 21 golf course communities. Some have 18 holes of golf, others have 27, 36 or 54 holes. St. James Plantation has a whopping 81.

    That’s a lot of courses, but what really makes everything click are the activities that center around golf. Each weekend there are several charity golf events. I can only write about a few because if I didn’t limit their coverage, that’s all I would ever write about.

  • Golfers, be aware of the sun

    We’re all used to watching the PGA Tour on weekends. Almost all PGA events are contested in medal (stroke) play. That means the score accumulates hole-by-hole until four days of play are completed. The lowest score at the end of 72 holes wins.

  • Warm temperatures bring tough...

    As we enter the first week of August, most Brunswick County residents are more concerned about staying cool instead of their next fishing trip. This time of year brings unbearably hot temperatures to our region that give most of our predatory fish a bad case of lockjaw. These species, such as king mackerel, Spanish mackerel and mahi mahi, refuse to eat. Every year different bait presentations are tried, yet the fish do not bite as well as they do in the fall and spring. This leaves charter fishermen like myself with the question, “Will they decide to bite today?”
