WARRIOR RIDE 10.17-21.17

WARRIOR RIDE at Brunswick Plantation 10.17-21.17
Brunswick Plantation will host this years WARRIOR RIDE which will be the largest group of Veterans ever to participate in the event. Sixty Wounded Warriors have registered and come from NC and SC, Florida, Virginia, and Puerto Rico. These Veterans are fitted out for racing bikes and participate in rides each day, to locations like Southport, Supply, Ocean Isle, and Calabash.
Our residents have a WARRIOR RIDE staff, which runs fundraisers to be able to provide the Warriors with a hearty breakfast each morning and a Gala Dinner, where residents and Veterans sit together. The local VFWs and American Legion also provide dinners.
The RIDE provides the opportunity for the Veteran to get back into life and the community and feel good about themselves, still being able to accomplish physical goals, even with a lifetime physical handicap. WE SALUTE THESE VALIENT VETS!

May-June 2017 Brunswick Plantation Living

BRUNSWICK PLANTATION LIVING
MAY-JUNE 2017
RED, WHITE & BLUE EDITION
Welcome to our Red, White, & Blue Brunswick Plantation Community Charities activities. With both Memorial Day and the 4th of July coming up, homeowners here are in full swing to honor both our active and former military personnel. We are kicking off with patriotic bows and flags on every mailbox and lamp post in the Plantation, as well as lines of American flags. On Memorial Day, there will be a special ceremony around the flagpole and names will be read in tribute to their service to the country. The Brunswick Co Sheriff’s Quartet will perform and there will be readings by Plantation residents who have served in the military. Also, there will be a “Memory Circle of Flags” around the fountain for the 4th of July. They will bear the names of loved ones homeowners wish to remember.
To celebrate the 4th of July, a barbeque is planned, and a Parade of Golf Carts decked out in red, white, and blue. Several additional activities are planned to include all our homeowners. These fund-raising activities will allow us to support many charitable programs in Brunswick County.
FUN IN THE SUN
Summer is here and we have broken out the sun screen and are enjoying the three outdoor pools here on Brunswick Plantation. Our Full Moon Parties have started. For many years residents and their friends have gathered at Sunset Beach to celebrate the arrival of a full moon. The next full moon is June 9 and is the Strawberry Moon. Pack your coolers and enjoy a beach evening.
The Tennis Group plays every Sunday and Thursday mornings, and is open to anyone interested in the game—no dues or commitment. We have all abilities, beginner to advanced.
The Pickleball Group invites all residents to join—it is one of the area’s fastest growing sports. They play Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If you would be interested in a golf exercise class, it meets every Tuesday, and Yoga is offered on Thursdays. We are lucky to have Brunswick House, our Property Owners’ clubhouse for all our various activities, including card clubs and game nights. We have a number of different activities organized to “keep us in shape.”
BEACH BEAT
The Summer Concert Series is starting up. Sunset Beach concerts are Wednesdays 7-9 pm thru Sept 6 in the gazebo in Village Park on Queen Anne Street. Hickman Crossroads Library continues to host first run movies and is featuring “beach books” for light reading this summer. Library cards are free for all Brunswick Co residents. Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach is celebrating 15 years of stargazing, and is featuring programs on loggerhead turtles—more about these famous turtles in a future edition.
Seashell of the Month: The Key Hole Sand Dollar – This is the treasure we all hope to find while walking Sunset Beach. They are a flat round shell with a felt-like coating and have five radiating slots and a central set of flowerlike gills.
NOTES FROM BRUNSWICK PLANTATION HOMES REAL ESTATE

If you would like to speak with one of our Brunswick Plantation Homes Sales Agents, call us at 910.845.6928. Mark, David, and Kate await your call.
GARDENING IN THE SOUTH
Hydrangeas: Speaking of summer, Endless Summer Hydrangeas are all the rage as they have a long blooming life, starting in May. Most garden centers have a wide variety of hydrangeas, and now they have even taken the work of making them “blue” or “pink.” Alkaline soil turns the flowers pink, while acid soil turns them blue. You can now buy a pellet product to turn your hydrangeas just the color you want. They do like to be watered regularly. Other sure bets for hot weather color include sweet potato vine (bright lime), impatiens, and lantana.
GOLF YOUR WAY
Magnolia, Azalea, Dogwood: Think these are just flowers?—no, no, these are our three 9-hole championship golf courses. Our summer COUPLES/PARTNERS GOLF has started. Homeowners play with their neighbors on Wednesdays thru October. All residents of BP are eligible to play in this event and golf is followed by dinner at the 19th Hole Restaurant and Lounge, located in the Plantation House.
Our Member/Member Championship is in May. Starting in July our yearly maintenance will take place which will include tees, fairways, and greens. This is necessary to ensure good greens and healthy grass in the years ahead. Happy Golfing from the Pro, Shawn Hicken. Remember, you can obtain accommodations and golf packages at www.brunswickvillas.com.
19th HOLE RESTAURANT & LOUNGE: Our on-site restaurant in the Plantation House is currently running Friday night buffets and Tuesday night specials. Everyone looks forward to our chef’s great fried chicken and southern sides.

Hello to All:

 

We are heading into the last weeks of summer and Mother Nature has played a huge role in our golf course conditions.  After withstanding a period without rain this summer, leaving us very dry and short of much needed water for irrigation, Rob and his staff are working diligently to keep our course in excellent shape.

Hopefully, (keeping our fingers crossed) we will get the much needed rainfall required to soften our course and remove many of the dry areas.  Thank you to Rob and staff for their hard work!

 Upcoming Events:

2016 Men’s and Ladies Club Championship

September 26-29

The Ladies will play the 26th and 28th

Men will play the 27th and 29th

$25 Registration Fee to enter.  Forms will be Available after August 15, 2016

The Champions dinner will be held Thursday September 29th at 6 pm.

Spouses of participants not playing in the event may attend the dinner for a $20 fee (Sign at the Pro Shop)

 Wishing all of you great experiences on the course!

Happy Golfing,

Golf News from the Pro 7.16 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Hello to All:

Summer time is here and with it brings extreme heat and very humid 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,
