  • OIFC encounters the Gulf Coast

      With Christmas quickly approaching, most folks either have their head wrapped around family gatherings or wrapping presents for the family gatherings. This eventually leads folks to forgetting about the outdoors and how much fun you can have. Whether it’s fishing for trout in the skinny backwaters or calling in a drake mallard from your duck blind, the week of Christmas is the perfect time to teach and perform these activities with your family members.

  • Baby, it’s cold outside

     Many of us who live in Brunswick County are from the north. We’re from New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, New England, even Minnesota.

    Years ago, Gene and I came down on a family vacation and we fell in love with the beaches, the golf, the fishing, restaurants —  and the weather.

    Historically, the average temperature in this area in January is a high of 55 and a low of 34. Chicago, on the other hand, has an average daily temperature of 31 (January) and New York has an average daily temperature of 39 for the same month.

  • No. 11 Harcum defeats BCC

    BOLIVIA ­— The elite remained elusive as 11th-ranked Harcum College slipped past Brunswick Community College 93-89 Friday night, Dec. 19.

    It marked the final game of the fifth annual BCC Holiday Basketball Classic in the Dinah Gore Aquatics & Fitness Center gymnasium.

    Harcum, from Bryn Mawr, Pa., finished fourth last year in the national junior college tournament and was ranked fifth in the nation last week before losing its second in 16 games this season.

    Last month I attended the annual Conference & Trade Show of the Carolinas Golf Course Superintendent’s Association. The event at the big convention center in Myrtle Beach, S.C., had three days of meetings, seminars, keynote speakers, networking and fun for the 1,800 members of the CGCSA.

  • All I want for Christmas is a...

      The Christmas cookies are being made, arrangements for family visits have been acknowledged and the last of your gift shopping keeps getting pushed farther and farther back. With all this going on, fishermen wonder why it is so hard to get a day to yourself on the water during the holidays. Fortunately, the fishing has remained consistent over the past week.

  • Pro profile: Brett Thomaswick of...

     Brett Thomaswick has been the head golf professional at Sandpiper Bay for six months and he loves his job.

    A giant of a man at 6 feet, 6 inches, Brett grew up in Ford City, Pa., just north of Pittsburgh. He played basketball and baseball in high school. When he was 17, his father (an avid golfer) took him to an exhibition match at La Trobe Country Club. Brett was standing on a slight knoll behind one of the greens when Arnold Palmer hit a shot that flew the green and rolled right to him.
