Hello to All:
April is here and so is the Spring weather. The golf course is greening up and is busy with play. My staff and I are excited to see all of you each day playing golf.
Our pro-shop is full of new spring apparel. Come by and take advantage of your 20% member discount while many items are still in stock. Property owners receive 10% off all items.
Golf Super Rob Vaughan and staff have done a great job getting our course back in shape after dealing with very inclement weather conditions this winter. Thanks to them for their efforts.
Using our golf course cart paths for walking, biking, jogging, or any other type of exercise is prohibited during hours of operation. Those hours are 7:00 am to 8:00 pm from now through daylight savings. Also, traveling to and from the golf course using personal golf carts is prohibited. Please have consideration for our guests playing golf and use the roadways for traveling. This would satisfy many. Thank you for understanding.
Quick Golf Tip
How many of you struggle with fast putts? When faced with this shot you should stroke the putt using the toe of your putter. This will allow a softer strike and more control. Try it, it works!
Have Fun! And play well this spring!

Hello to All:
Spring is here and we are looking for some beautiful weather here in coastal North Carolina. My staff and I are happy to see everyone playing golf.
- Members may only make starting times in the morning the months of March and April 48 hours in advance. Afternoon times may be scheduled seven days out.
- Also, the pro-shop has been offering a 30% discount on specific items.
- The tee schedule has changed to 7:30-9:40 starting all three tees in the Morning, and 12:20-2:30 in the afternoon. We will have no availability between 9:40 and 12:20 due to the crossing over of are nines.
Late starting times will be available after 4 pm.
Thanks to Golf Course Super Rob Vaughan and his staff for their efforts throughout this unusually wet early spring.
Did you know?
Seventy percent of all your strokes during your round are played from 75 yards and in? So, what does that mean?
Answer: If you want to improve, practice your short game. Golfers spend too much time beating range balls and forget about the important parts of the game. Break your practice time up in two parts. If one practices for two hours spend 25% of your time hitting balls and the other 75% on your short game. Try this for one month and see how your scores plummet!
