Eat and Play By The Calabash Waterfront…Fun For All!

BP Beach CollageFolks at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® enjoy being close to the lovely, sunny Coastal Carolina Beaches…And the Charming Village of Calabash, NC! Calabash was settled as the fishing village known as Peas Landing in the early 1800’s. Calabash-boats-framedThis picturesque village chose the name of Calabash when, at the request of villagers, it got it’s first Post Office in 1883.The name Calabash comes from the name of the gourd or tropical trees/vines that grew wild in this area. The Native Americans used this gourd to hold food and water.

Calabash Town sealThe area became known for Calabash Seafood, lightly dipped in seasonal batter & deep fried to a golden brown! This delicious style of seafood was first cooked outside when fishermen hauled their catch to the docks of Calabash. Folks then would smell the aroma of this fried seafood and flock to the docks for palatable plate of this appetizing seafood! Later “Fish Camps” moved the cooking of Calabash Seafood indoors. You can now find this quality Shrimp & Fish in local seafood restaurants that specialize in Calabash Seafood! Calabash is known as “The Seafood Capital of the World”!

Calabash Seafood

Calabash RestThe original  Calabash Seafood Restaurants were established by the local families. Beck’s, Ella’s, and Coleman’s restaurants are still favorites. Unfortunately, Coleman’s had a fire  in the past year. Fortunately, it is currently being rebuilt in it’s location…Down by the Calabash Waterfront!  The Coleman family recommends you go to their sister restaurant, The Seafood Hut…Located on the road to the Calabash Waterfront, for their style of Calabash Seafood!

Good Night, Mrs. Calabash…Wherever You Are!

Jimmy FramedYou may recall Jimmy Durante ending his performances for years with saying…”Good Night, Mrs. Calabash, Wherever You Are!” There are different versions of this story with two families claiming to be the Mrs. Calabash in Durante’s quote. Mrs. Lucy Coleman of Coleman’s Restaurant and Ella of Ella’s Restaurant both say that they are The Mrs. Calabash! The story goes that Durante was passing through Calabash and ate at their seafood restaurant. He loved it and is to have said that he would …Make You Famous! Hence, ending each performance with, “Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever You Are!” Regardless of which Mrs. Calabash he is referring to, Jimmy Durante did pass thorough Calabash and eat the famous Calabash Seafood..To his Taste Delight! A Real Tribute to the Taste Treat of Calabash Seafood!

Golf News from the Pro 7.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

Hello to All:

Summer time is here and with it is warm to hot days.


Follow these Tips to Keep your Focus:

  • Research shows that dehydration negatively impacts all of the important attributes critical to the game of golf.
  • If your strength and endurance are compromised by dehydration, perhaps your drives might not go as far.
  • If your balance and flexibility are off, your chances of slicing increases.
  • If your concentration is rendered, your putts may not fall. Instead of that coveted birdie you find yourself 3 putting for bogey.

All of these scenarios can become even worse on a hot-humid day when the risk of dehydration increases.  Staying hydrated throughout the round may be the key to improving your game on those hot days.  Start hydration the day before by drinking plenty of water throughout the day .  2 hours prior to starting your round drink at least 2 cups of water.  Then at the start of each hole drink about 1/2 a cup of water, even when not feeling thirsty. For some of us, the thirst response doesn’t kick in until we are already dehydrated.

What is a 1/2 cup?  It’s about 4 gulps of water.  Also, avoid alcohol (and this is where we lose most golfers…)  But seriously, if you are a competitive golfer and intentional about your game, you know alcohol causes dehydration even if consumed the day before your round.  Coupled with 4-5 hours of play in the heat and humidity, alcohol could really blow your game.

We have ice-cold water on the course to keep you hydrated, so play hard and hydrate wisely.

Golf Course Maintenance:

Rob and his staff have completed our summer greens aerating program.  They are doing a great job and the course condition proves it.

Swing Tip: Keep Your Hands Low

Limiting the height of the follow through will effectively reduce the height of your shots.  The lower the hands, the lower the ball-flight.  Moving the ball back in your stance or choosing a stronger club and trying to swing easy are other ways to accomplish the same thing.  However, they are less reliable and more difficult to execute.  Instead, keep your hands low in the finish and the trajectory of your shots will be lower


Happy Golfing,

Nick came to Myrtle Beach and worked as a civil servant after his military retirement. One of Nick’s golf buddies left and Paul joined the group!

After playing golf at Brunswick Plantation, Nick bought a house in Smithfield around 2002.  Paul came from Virginia to play golf and stayed with Nick at his house.

Paul decided he wanted to get away from the traffic and hustle where he lived in Fairfax County in Virginia. His house in Virginia sold right away while he stayed in a condo in VA.

The condo he lives in now at The Lakes area of Brunswick Plantation was just being built when he was looking to live here. Paul Loved the View of the Lake! He did not want yard to take care of himself and liked it that the Beautiful Landscaping was Done For You! He also liked the Brunswick Plantation Golf Course.  Brunswick_Plantation_Golf_Resorts_-_Dogwood_375823Three Nine Holes was Perfect for him! He also found that the people were All So Nice! He enjoyed all of the men at the Men’s Golf Association though he doesn’t play now. He really enjoyed them and does miss those times with them. He still Loves Living in the Golf Community though!

He says that his friend, Barbara Dennington, is always just so good to him. She helps him out and organizes others to be there for him if he needs anything! Everyone seems to have that Southern Hospitality…Even if they are not originally from the South!

Paul says that even the people who work in the stores are So Nice! he wrote to Walmart a couple of years ago about how lovely a girl who worked there was to him. When he went back to the store, she had been promoted to managing the Baby Department! Good News for All!

Paul Moulton…Photography & Cinematography Careers

Paul was a “Photographer At Heart” from an early age! He says he Life Collagewas so amazed by the 1930’s LIFE Magazine photos…From ALL Over the World! He really got into photography in High School and made his own Dark Room to develop the photos he took. His brother-in-law gave Paul equipment…An Enlarger & Developing Trays, that he had from his own interest in photography! So, when Paul was a student at Belmont High School in Massachusetts, he and his friends would go out and take photographs related to topics being studied in class!

Paul credits his mother with encouraging him to join the Army, enlisting for for 18 months to qualify for the GI Bill for college. The hope was to go on to college after that time and study photography. However, at that time there was no GI Bill money for college…So Paul, after fruitlessly looking for work in the as a civilian,  re-enlisted within the time period to retain the rank of Staff Sergeant he had earned.

Signal Corps centerAs Fate or Luck would have it, he received outstanding…On the Job Training in Still Photography and later, Cinematography, from some of the most experienced and talented people in that field at the time!

Though Paul never got to Photogaphy School in college, he did work with WWII Veteran photographer, Harold Desonnier, learning to process film and mix chemicals. He worked under Desonnier and Joe Sheff for a year before being allowed to to go on a Still Photography assignment.

Paul also worked with Sgt. Martin “Boots” Barnes, WWII Photographer for motion pictures. In the early days, Paul went out with “Boots” shooting 16MM and 36MM Film for quality check for the 16MM.

Golf News from the Pro 6.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

Hello to All:

June is here and with it comes warm temps and higher humidity.  Be sure to drink plenty of water before you play and during your round.  By doing this you will defend yourself against cramping, heat exhaustion and dehydration.


Our golf course aeration maintenance takes place this month as well.  Superintendent Rob Vaughan and his staff will be aerating our greens, tees, and fairways….one course per week.

We will keep that course closed for the entire week allowing healing time and giving Rob’s crew time to catch up on the area’s that need attention.  The schedule is as follows:


Magnolia Course: June 2-9

Azalea Course: June 10-18

Dogwood Course: June 19-26

The Member-Member Tournament was held May 25-28.  Congrats to all the Winners!


Golf Rules Note:

For those of you that travel the Resort using a gold cart, I ask that you please use the roadways.  Driving the cart paths to and from home should be avoided.  Using the paths during the hours of operation is against rules.  Consider using the roads  so as not to disturb course players.  Thanks very much.

Also, walking,  bike riding, jogging, or other travel is only allowed before 7 am and after 7 pm.

Please help us to provide a better golf experience for Members, Property Owners, and Resort Guests alike.  Thanks again.


Happy Golfing,


Head Golf Professional
