IRS Scam Continues Throughout Brunswick County
Residents of Brunswick County continue to be harassed by the IRS Phone Scam.  The scammer, impersonating an IRS agent, calls an individual and claims that the individual owes money to the IRS.   Many times these calls are aggressive or threatening.  They will threaten law enforcement or court action, license revocation, and other frightening scenarios.  Scammers go so far as to alter their caller ID numbers to make it appear as though the IRS or another agency is calling. They provide fake ID badge numbers and often times will be able to provide personal information about the individual such as their name or address in order to appear official.  All of this to persuade the individual into making a bogus payment, many times via a prepaid debit card or wire transfer, and conning them out of hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
Please be vigilant in protecting yourself and loved ones against this scam.  According to the IRS’s website, the IRS will never:
•    Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
•    Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
•    Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
•    Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
•    Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

The IRS also advises not give out any information and to hang up immediately if you receive one of these calls.  They advise those who do receive a call to contact Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to report the call so that they can have a record of it in their data base.  Calls can be reported via their website at or call 800-366-4484.  The IRS also advises to report the call to the Federal Trade Commission via their website at  Residents may also contact the Sheriff’s Office at 910-253-2777 and speak to someone in our Financial Crimes division if they are unsure of what they need to do.  It is best to report the call immediately.
Again, please contact family, friends and neighbors in our community who may not be aware and help us keep others from becoming victimized by these thieves.

Golf News from the Pro 7.16 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic


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,

Hello to All:

June is here and with that brings warm temperatures with high humidity.  Be sure to drink plenty of water before you play golf and during your round.  By doing this you will prepare yourself against cramping, heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Our golf course aeration maintenance takes place this month also.  Rob 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 area’s that need attention.  The schedule is as follows:

Azalea- May 31-June 6 (Completed)

Magnolia- June 7-June 14 (Completed)

Dogwood- June 15-21(Currently Closed)


The 2016 Member/Member Tournament was held May 23rd-May 26th .  Congratulations to all the winners!

2016 Ladies Champions– Kathy Toeppner and Nancy Smyka

2nd place Alcina Davis and Denise Kantner

3rd place Moe MacDonald and Theresa Georgens

2016 Men’s Champions– Bryan Kantner and Bill Rochford

2nd Place- Rich Edwards and Roy Maday

3rd place- Larry MacDonald and Gary Abby

Golf Rules Note:

For those of you that travel the Resort using a golf cart.  I would 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 has been causing some issues.  Consider using the roads so we do not disturb our players on the course.  Thanks very much.

Also, walking, riding bikes, driving your golf cart, jogging, rollerblading or other travel are all prohibited between the hours of 7 am to 7pm.  Please help us provide a better golf experience for Member’s, Property Owners, and Resort Guests.  Thanks again.




Happy Golfing,

Coastal Living News and Events! 6.16


As the end of the school year approaches, I would like to remind parents and motorists to keep Brunswick County children safe throughout the summer. Excited about being out for the summer, kids may not be alert to safety issues as they normally would. Keep these points in mind for a safe summer:
Use extra caution during the last week of school, especially when driving through school zones. Be aware that kids may leave or arrive at school at different times throughout the day and are apt to be preoccupied with thoughts of summer fun.
Playground speed limits remain in effect year-round. Pay close attention when driving through school areas and parks. Small children are less predictable and harder to see than adults. During the summer, drive with headlights on, even during the day, and maintain a 20-second visual lead to allow time to stop suddenly.
Common sense must prevail. A bouncing ball in the road can be followed by a child. Hockey sticks, small helmets, tricycles or bicycles lying on the sidewalk mean nearby kids. When backing up, always make sure no kids are present; walk behind the vehicle to check if need be.
Parents should be particularly safety-conscious. Remind your children to stop, listen and look both ways before crossing a street. Hold their hand when walking through a parking lot; motorists may not see them between parked cars. If you’re not with them, it is best to tell them to avoid shortcuts altogether. Make sure they cross streets at crosswalks if there are any; this is critical if they’re headed for a beach on a crowded summer day. No jaywalking!
To reduce injuries resulting from bike crashes, make SURE your kids always wear helmets, which are proven to be very effective.
Our kids want to have a fun and memorable summer. It is our job to make sure they also have a safe one.
Sheriff John W. Ingram, V
Brunswick Sheriff’s Office

Hidden Gem 

The Vereen Memorial Park and Gardens features pathways, and wooden boardwalks that extends across several beautiful salt marshes and small islands. There is a nice gazebo that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and the distant waterfront of Little River.
Located on 114 acre of woodlands and salt marshes one mile south of the South Carolina line from Calabash, NC.
The land was part of Big Landing Plantation.In April 1972, 115 acres were deeded to Horry County Historial Commission by Jackson Hiram Vereen to be used as a botonical garden and nature trail.
Historic Vereen family Cemetery is also located there with revolutionary war graves marked.
Grab yourth (46) th (44) camera, walking shoes and enjoy a 3 mile loop around the park.Afterwards sit on the swings and enjoy the view.

*Dogs are welcomed at the park.

*Admission and parking free

*Trail maps are located at Welcome center before you enter park.

*Signs along the trails about the plants and wildlife

*Picnic tables,swings,benches in the park.

*Open during daylight hours.



Sunset Beach Sea Turtle Season has arrived.
The Sunset Beach Turtle Watch Program (SSBTWP), is a private nonprofit that solicits volunteers to help monitor nest sites,strandings, and hatchings. Volunteers record nesting sites,move nests that maybe in threatened,record turtle hatches,and help hatchlings reach the ocean safely.
Loggerhead Sea Turtles are the most common visitors to the North Carolina Beaches.
Stop by the Sunset Properties parking lot on Sundays ( during the Summer months)at 7:00 pm to enjoy a fun free educational time about Sea Turtles!They will be glad to answer any questions you have!

Enjoy your walk along the beach to see the Turtle Nests.13329577_10209439045163117_4312437651694268937_o


Avoid disturbing a turtle that is crawling to or from the ocean. DO NOT crowd or attempt to ride a turtle. DO NOT shine lights or take flash photos of the turtle. Stay off the turtle tracks. Sit quietly in the dark, at a distance, to watch her. It is against the law to disturb her and/or her nest in any way.
Stay clear of turtle nests. Avoid walking or riding vehicles near the nest. Stay off the turtle tracks. DO NOT disturb markers or screens that may be protecting the nests. Markers usually consist of wooden stakes outlined with bright tape or ribbon.
Sea Turtle – Loggerhead
LIGHTS OFF. Lights disturb nesting turtles and hatchlings. Please TURN OFF your outdoor lights and shield indoor lights from shining on the beach at night. We ask the cooperation of all beach front house renters, owners, businesses, and hotels to turn off beach lights during nesting and hatching season from May to late October. Allow hatchlings to make their way safely to the ocean. DO NOT touch the hatchlings. Keeping hatchlings is illegal.
DO NOT LITTER. Pick up and place ALL trash in barrels. Fill in sand castles, trenches, and holes before leaving the beach. DO NOT leave your canopy, umbrella, or chairs on the beach overnight. These all present dangers and can cause death to turtles and their hatchlings. Avoid using flashlights, fireworks, or flash photography while on the beach at night. It is against Federal and State Laws to touch or disturb nesting sea turtles, hatchlings, or nests. If you are a SMOKER, to avoid cigarette littering on our beach, please take a portable ash tray/butt tin with you. Don’t forget a butt bin can be as simple as an empty film canister or breath mint container!
Take time to cleanup our beaches…just 30 minutes!!!


North Carolina Lighthouse Series

Oak Island  Lighthouse is one of the 6 active North Carolina Lighthouses. There are 6 active, 2 inactive( Bald Head, “Old Baldy” and Roanoke River), 2 light towers (Diamond Shoals and Frying pan Shoals). All of which mark more than 301 miles of coast line.

Oak Island Lighthouse

*Completed in 1958

*Actual structure is 153 feet tall, but it stands on a slight rise which brings it to a height of 169 feet above the water.

*No spiral staircase, instead a series of ship ladders steps with a total of 131 steps to the lantern gallery.

*Summer tours Memorial Day- Labor Day.. Information on tours at

  • * The Oak Island Lighthouse is located on property that has been in use as a U.S. Coast    Guard Station since 1930
  • *There is a boardwalk and observation deck across the street.
  • *the characteristic flashing pattern for the light is four one-second flashes every 10 seconds.
  • Call and make a reservation and enjoy the view!th (28)


                                         Summer Heat is Here! 

• Watch the weather channel or sign up for weather alerts with your local security service to stay
informed of rising temperatures and potentially dangerous conditions.
• Drink plenty of fluids; water and sports drinks are the best source of hydration. Avoid alcohol
and sugary beverages, as they can actually lead to dehydration.
• Try to stay inside an air-conditioned building. If your home does not have air conditioning, go
to a public building (e.g., library, recreation center, or shopping mall), or contact your local
security company to find a nearby heat-relief shelter.
• When temperatures soar, wear light, ventilated clothing;
moisture-wicking shorts and short-sleeved t-shirts are ideal. Also, avoid dark clothing. Clothes
in light colors won’t attract sunlight like darker colors will.
• Avoid spending time in a closed, parked car. If you observe someone who appears to be
unconscious inside a closed vehicle, alert the nearest emergency worker or security officer
• When exercising outdoors, take 15-minute breaks every so often in an air-conditioned location,
or rest in a shaded spot while you rehydrate and cool down.
• Use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and reapply every two hours during extended
activities outdoors and after sweating or swimming. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses
for extra protection.
Identify Symptoms of Overheating
• Overheating is the cause of many illnesses and conditions. Learn to recognize the signs that
you or someone around you may be overheating, and take action immediately.
• Heat cramps – intense cramps in the legs or abdomen – and substantial sweating are common
symptoms of overheating.
• Heat exhaustion may be present when a person has cool, clammy skin and feels lightheaded,
weak, or nauseous.
• Heat stroke is the most serious of heat illnesses. Signs of heatstroke include headache, high
body temperature (106º F or higher), rapid pulse, or even unconsciousness. Seek medical
help as soon as possible – when the symptoms are severe, any delays can be fatal.
Treat Someone Who Is Overheated
• Take the victim inside to recline and relax in a cooler environment.
• Remove or loosen clothing for more ventilation, and fan the victim to create increased air flow.
• Use a cool, wet washcloth, sponge, or ice pack to dab the victim’s neck, face, and joints.
• Encourage the victim to drink small sips of water, a sports hydration drink, or juice.
• Call 9-1-1 or alert a nearby security officer if you see no improvement.
• It is important to remember that young children and the elderly are most at risk from heat
illness and should be regularly

Golf News from the Pro 5.16 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

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. You might not be aware of this but, Bermuda grass, when dormant (brown in color), requires a night-time temperature in the low 60’s to really thrive.  Due to the unusually cold and wet weather pattern this spring we are just starting to see fairway and rough mowers cutting grass. 

Rob Vaughan, Golf Course Superintendent, and his staff are doing a great job!  Thanks to Rob & Staff.

 Starting May 30th our yearly maintenance will take place; which will include tees, fairways, and greens.  Although this is not our favorite time of year it is a necessary evil in order to ensure good greens and healthy grass in the years ahead.  We will close one nine for a week at a time to allow for better healing and for our superintendent to address other issues for that particular course.

 Here is our 2016 maintenance schedule, with cooperation from the weather. Courses TBA.

May 30 thru June 5

 June 6 thru June 12

  June 13 thru June 19

Happy Golfing,
