    I’ve been writing this column for 13 years and each year brings wonderful surprises in the world of Brunswick County golf: new courses, renovations of older tracks; awesome green superintendents and golf pros and even a golf course designer (Tim Cate). We have hundreds of golfers and dozens of golf course communities. We have club champions and average players who have done wonderful things in their past lives, plus volunteers who make this a great community. I never run out of topics.
