    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.”

    The 33rd year of Wayne Smith’s dove hunt, on fields just outside Shallotte, begins like any other.

    Well, almost like any other.

  • 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.
