  • Marlene Floyd: Famous, friendly...

    One of the things I like best about writing this column for the Brunswick Beacon is the people I meet along the way: golf professionals, superintendents, golf course architects, managers and owners. Many of the people I write about are ordinary people with extraordinary stories, like disabled golfers who keep going in the face of adversity, cancer survivors, club champions, junior golfers and, of course, The First Tee of Brunswick County.

      The West Brunswick High School baseball team lost 3-2 in eight innings to Ashley in the season opener March 1.

    West senior pitcher Trey Brown had a no-hitter through six and one-third innings before the Screaming Eagles’ Shepard homered on an 0-2 pitch. Ashley scored twice in the top of the eighth in taking a 3-1 lead. West cut the lead to 3-2 in the bottom of the inning and had two runners on base with no outs, but Ashley’s Trevor Kelly ended the game with three straight strikeouts.

     Levi Prince, the starting fullback for the South Brunswick Cougar football team, has signed a letter of intent to play football at Livingstone College in Salisbury.

    “I looked at Pembroke and Catawba colleges,” Prince said, “but chose Livingstone because they offered me a full scholarship. I’m thrilled to be going to Livingstone and plan on looking at sports therapy in the long run. But as long as I can play football for the next four years, I will be happy.”

  • Get fit for better golf longer...

    Spring has come once more and we can finally play golf without four layers of clothing, winter gloves, hand warmers, earmuffs, wool socks and a flask. 

    It’s time to tune up our game, time to take lessons and hit balls at the range, time to begin a walking, stretching or fitness program on our own, at the gym or perhaps with a personal trainer.
