    A new management team has taken the reins at Brick Landing, and it is truly a “team.”

    Trey and Jennifer Ernstes are now in charge of operations. They are a married couple with a beautiful 2-year-old daughter (Jordyn). Jennifer is the general manager and Trey is the director of golf operations.

    “Basically, I report to my wife, but I think we can handle it,” joked Trey Ernstes as I chatted with the two of them last week. “This is a great opportunity and we’re going to make it work.”

    By Thomas Ryan Paul

    The custom we follow when a great golfer dies is to cite statistics. And so it is with Arnold Palmer. Four Masters, one U.S. Open and two Open championships in seven years from 1958 through 1964. A memorable run, the likes of which few have achieved.

  • Lockwood Folly: 20 years of...

    Lockwood Folly is an exciting place these days. It is the only member-owned course in Brunswick County. The normal high level of activity has been enhanced by new greens that were installed this past summer, and by the ongoing construction of a new 16,000 square-foot clubhouse.

    This year marks the 20th year of hugely successful charity events, many of them focused on breast cancer. Other charities that have received the largess of Lockwood are Awareness of Autism, Hospice Closer to Home and Ovarian Cancer Research.

  • Fin prick causes month of pain,...

    The water temperatures have been very hot this year, staying close to 90 degrees most of the summer. The week of July 24 was the last week I have been able to do any fishing until this past week. It has taken about a month to recover from something that happens to me daily. As a charter guide, I get stuck by fish fins all the time, not to mention all the shrimp that horn me throughout the year. Well, one fish must have gotten me a little bit deeper and apparently was carrying some nasty bacteria. I knew within a few hours this incident was different.

  • How to fish deep for Spanish...

    Fishing off the Brunswick County coast was difficult last week. As I stated in my column last week, a combination of wind, scarcity of baitfish and high water temperatures have directly influenced how and when fish feed off our coast. And to put this problem in its simplest form, it’s too dang hot.

    Since 2011, the NFF has worked with Rogers Redding, the national coordinator of College Football Officiating, to help generate awareness for the rule changes in college football through a series of regular columns distributed by the NFF. The CFO functions as the national professional organization for all football officials who work games at the collegiate level, and the organization had its annual winter meeting of conference coordinators for football officials in late January for the fourth consecutive year at the NFF headquarters in Irving, Texas.
