  • Learning golf: From intimidating...

     Golf is an intimidating game. It’s played outside in all kinds of weather on natural terrain. There are tees and greens and fairways with obstacles like sand traps and ponds, creeks, rivers, trees, shrubs and deep grass. 

    In baseball and tennis, you have a single bat or racquet. In golf you have a bag full of 14 clubs with different names and uses: irons, woods, hybrids, rescue clubs, wedges and a putter.

    It is safe to say that patience is a virtue. Whether it’s fishing in the backwaters for redfish or standing in line at your favorite eatery, patience will issue an individual more satisfaction when the opportunity finally presents itself. Patience is what near shore and offshore anglers need this time of year. The fish are making their transition from offshore to near shore and can be frustrating to catch if you don’t take a few precautionary measures before venturing out.

     I’d heard about Ellen Gregory, the new executive director of the Carol S. Petrea Youth Foundation, and I even met her briefly during a photo session for the Future Generations Tournament (playing this Saturday, June 7, at St. James Plantation).

    I wanted to get to know this gal who is at the helm of four local chapters of The First Tee, plus the Carolinas Leadership Academy at Cinghiale Creek. Last week, Gregory and I had lunch, and then on Sunday night, June 1, I attended a donor reception at the Carolinas Leadership Academy and spent more time with her.

  • Golfers: Watch out for snakes,...

     Golf has inherent dangers: back sprains, errant golf balls, clubs that fly out of sweaty hands, carts that can overturn on steep hillsides. 

    But on the Carolina Coast, other dangers lurk in the ponds, lakes, marshes and pine forests, and we need to be aware of them.

    During the Memorial Day weekend, tourists and anglers alike flocked to the Brunswick beaches to have their first big vacation. While packing the beach chairs, sunscreen and coolers, they realize their favorite fishing rod isn’t packed up. Or will they even need it this year? The answer is yes.
