    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.

  • Tough fishing with tougher...

    Every fisherman has his idea of what a perfect day on the water would be like. Whether it be catching mahi mahi and wahoo in the Gulf Stream on a warm spring day or catching king mackerel along the beach on a cool, crisp October morning, we all have our dream trip. And unfortunately, no matter how hard we have tried this year, the days where these dream trips have been fulfilled were few and far between.

    Staff Report

    Caroline Cahill shot a 33 and teammate Jayla Rogers shot a 36 in leading Class 4A Laney to a first-place finish Sept. 12 in a Mideastern 3A/4A conference golf match on the Heron Course at Carolina National.

    The course was 2,338 yards. This was the fourth match of the conference season.

    “The greens were in great shape,” said Laney assistant coach Kathy Murchison, “which yielded a couple of low scores today. It was too bad that we couldn't play all 18 holes.”
