Donna and Jim Stangroom…So Happy that Brunswick Plantation Picked Them!

Stangrooms framedDonna and Jim Stangroom lived in Virginia, and for a few years they came South to vacation at a Time Share in North Myrtle Beach.   In 2003 they saw a sign for Ocean Ridge and decided to take a look.  However, they did not see a lot that they liked for themselves.

BP Entrance CollageDriving down the highway, they saw something about Brunswick Plantation & Golf Resort ® and decided to check it out, also. There was a security shack as a gate at the time…A Gated Community! Donna and Jim were not sure what they were looking for when real estate agent, Don Stahl, met with them.  They said Don was very professional and knowledgeable …Not at all high pressure! Don seemed to know more of what they wanted than they did. Dogwood was a new course at that time. Donna and Jim bought a lot…That Day on Covington in the Edenton Section of Brunswick Plantation. They originally had a 5 year plan to build and move here…But that became a 2 year plan with them renting a house on Ravennside until their new home was ready. They said they felt that Brunswick Plantation had Chosen Them! They have been very Happy with the Brunswick Plantation Community and the many Friendships they have made…And continue to make at here!

Lakes CollageThough Donna and Jim sold their house in Edenton 6 months ago, they continue to live at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® with their Family Dog, Libby…In a lovely condo on “The Lakes”. They can listen to the soothing sound of the fountain in the lake and be entertained by the Mallard Ducks and Canadian Geese floating by the Carolina Room. Life is Good at Brunswick Plantation!

Donna & Jim…In The Beginning!

Jim grew up in The Bronx of New York, and was the first generation of his family to be born in the United States.

Ennis CollageJim and Donna took Babbs to Ireland for her 80th birthday. The family had a birthday party for Babbs in Ennis, Ireland. That was Jim’s first time in Ireland and chance to meet his cousins.  He found it to be very exciting…Especially Cousin Mickey Mack! Mom stayed longer in Ireland but had to return home due to poor health where the family beagle had the loving instinct to watch over her.  She then lived in a condo near Donna & Jim. What a Blessing!

Hello to All:

May brings beautiful sunny and warm days and we have had plenty of wonderful days.

Our course is starting its way back to summer shape. The cooler than average winter/spring has not allowed the Bermuda grass to really thrive just yet. Rob Vaughan, Golf Course Superintendent, and his staff are doing a great job! Thanks to Rob & Staff.

The Pro-Shop has some 30% off sales on select items. Take advantage of these deals before they’re gone.

For those Golf Members planning on playing in the 2015 Member/Member tournament it is being contested May 25-28.

Happy Golfing,

Mother’s Day…Honor Mom the Coastal Carolina Way!

Mother's Day FramedMay 10 is Mother’s Day in the USA! Folks at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ®, as well as many other Americans, are looking forward to honoring our mothers! Many other countries also celebrate mothers this month.Wilson Frame The Official Mother’s Day is always the second Sunday in May in the United States…This date made official in 1914 by proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson. Our National Mother’s Day was a result of the campaign of Anna Jarvis of West Virginia whose own mother had passed away on May 9, years earlier.

Anna Jarvis framedAnne M. Jarvis campaigned for the creation of an official Mother’s Day in remembrance of her Mother and in Honor of Peace. She began on 1908 by petitioning the superintendent of the church where her mother had taught Sunday School for 20 years.  Her request was honored and the first official Mother’s Day celebration took place on May 10, 1908 at St. 1st Mother's day ChurchAndrew’s Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia. The event had a congregation of 407 and Anna arranged for white carnations…Her Mother’s Favorite Flower…to adorn the patrons. Two carnations were given to every Mother in attendance.

Mother's collage***Today White Carnations are used to Honor deceased Mothers. Pink or Red Carnations pay tribute to Mothers who are still alive.***

Brunswick Plantation Neighbors… “Helping Hands” For YOU!

BP Helpin Hands collageBrunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® is known for being a Friendly Community of active people with a variety of groups and organizations providing opportunities to share interests and talents….Fun for Everyone! There is also a group in place to be there for you to keep up the good life when you might need a little personal attention or assistance around your house for a time when you might not be Up To Par for one reason or another. Brunswick Plantation “Helping Hands” are a group of neighbors you can call who will be there for you when you need them to help you …”Get By With a Little Help from Your Friends!”

BP Villages CallageFolks at Brunswick Plantation already have friends and neighbors in their individual neighborhoods on the Plantation who are always there for each other. It is characteristic of this friendly community. “Helping Hands” extends this kind of support in times of need to everyone in the community!

Helping Hands…How it Works

HH Heartindex framedThe idea of “Helping Hands” came to Pat Moreau when she was working as a volunteer for Hospice. Pat is still the contact for this group at Brunswick Plantation….Though she stresses that there are around 25 women and men who are active in “Helping Hands” of Brunswick Plantation.  It truly does…Take a Village! Together, they will be... There for You with Personal, Comfortable Care when you need it!

Helping Hands List & Contacts

HHLHimages3As Brunswick Plantation is a dynamic community of active people…Folks may travel at times, have visitors, or be otherwise involved in various activities. For this reason, Pat keeps a chart of “Helping Hands” names & contacts which includes when she or they might be gone or otherwise committed.

However, there are always people available to assist others when needed. There may be Short Term or Longer Term commitments to folks who need it. This is based on the need and up to the “Helping Hands” volunteer.

Pat Moreau’s Cell Phone Number: 910-523-0093. When she is away, she will have anther contact number for someone designated to take the calls. Pat points out that this is all very Private Information of the members of “Helping Hands” and people receiving assistance are personal and Not Shared with other folks. Private & Personal is important! Participants may have a list , if requested. Communication is done by personal contact or phone, but not by E-mail.

“Helping Hands” is strictly volunteer and no money is accepted by volunteers. When people want to give money, they are asked to just donate to their favorite organization.                When “Helping Hands” are contacted and made aware of a concern or need, they make a visit to the person or people to meet them and determine what they can offer…Making a plan of assistance and determining who would best fit that need from the beginning.

Ways “Helping Hands” May Help You!

Helping Hands Helps “Caregivers”

caregiver 2“Helping Hands” folks know that caregivers need to take time for themselves. Everyone needs a Break in Life & To have a Life! They help Caregivers by:

  • Staying with person in need while the caregiver does something they enjoy…Weekly Golf! One man said his weekly Golf Day made him Feel Like a Whole New Person!
  • If you have a rather independent Mom or Someone living with you & you plan a trip away for awhile…”Helping Hands” will take them to lunch and call daily while you are gone.

Golf News from the Pro 4.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

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.

Friendly Reminder:

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!


Happy Golfing,


Head Golf Professional

Pro-Shop Manager

Director of Memberships
