  • New medical procedure puts local...

     John Mills started playing golf when he was a kid growing up in Scotch Plains, N.J. As he caddied at local courses, he learned to play the game and to love it.   

    John worked hard, got married and raised a family. During those busy, active years, John dreamed about the day he could retire, relax and play golf to his heart’s content. 

    As the years passed, the focus of his dreams became Brunswick County, and eventually the dream materialized into a beautiful home on the seventh hole of the Irwin Course at St. James Plantation.  

  • Chopper bluefish now out there...

     Big chopper bluefish continue to be a big story, as many of these feisty, fierce gamefish up to 10 pounds are being landed on Brunswick County piers or from the surf of our barrier islands. Some are caught by king mackerel fishermen using live bait and others are falling to cut bait or pluggers using Gotcha-style plugs. Anything alive or shiny in the water will get the attention of bluefish now.
