     We live in a diverse area as far as golf is concerned. Some of our residents have played golf their whole lives; some have never touched a club. Others played years ago, then gave up the game for their careers and family and now want to start again.

    Brunswick County has a temperate climate and more than a 100 golf courses within an easy drive. Why not learn to play the sport? If you played years ago, why not take it up again?
