Golf News from the Pro 11.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

Hello to All:

November is here and that means the Holidays are drawing near.

Mother nature decided to drop over twenty-five inches of rain in the month of October but, we managed to make it to the other side.

Although we are still very soggy rob and his staff have done a great job getting us back in shape. Thanks to Rob and his staff.

The 2016 member golf dues are available for your viewing. You may pick them up in the pro-shop at your convenience. We are hoping to see all of you in the return for the year 2016.


A couple of events are coming near also. Tuesday December 8, 2015 is the last Member social of the year. Shawn will have the pro-shop open offering discounts for Christmas items. Also, December 7, 2015 we are having the second annual Superintendents Revenge. A shot-gun start @ 12:00 pm. This will be a nine hole event on Magnolia. Food and spirits will follow the event at the 19th hole.

Tee-time Schedule Change

A reminder to all Members and property owners that our tee schedule changes December 1, 2015 and continues until the last day of February 2016. The Pro Shop will open at 8 am and close at 5 pm. Our first starting time will be 8:50 am. The later start helps with cold mornings in case of frost.

Happy Golfing,


Head Golf Professional

Be An Angel Christmas Party…All Are Invited

angel_aid_logo“Be An Angel” Wine and Cheese Gathering…December 5 @ the Brunswick House, 2Pm – 5Pm

Angel logo“Be An Angel” Wine and Cheese Gathering Benefits the Brunswick County Foster Children. Last year thanks to the generosity of Brunswick Plantation residents and the Toys for Tots program, we were able to provide gifts to the 148 children in foster care. We purchased 44 bicycles and a $675 Walmart gift card to be used during the year to provide emergency needs to children. Brunswick Plantation has been the largest donator to the foster children’s program in all of Brunswick County. Please let’s all get involved and keep that tradition going!

This year there are 132 children in foster care…Ages 1 thru 18 years of age. This is fewer than last year but the ones who are in care are there because of abuse, neglect, or drug abuse by their parents. There are young and older children in care, but there are more teenagers this year than in the past. The foster children of Brunswick County need your support.

Toys and games are needed for both boys and girls. Specific requests have been made for hair dryers, cosmetics, sporting goods, and Walmart gift cards for the teenagers. Monetary gifts and gift cards are also needed to purchase clothing as well as bicycles. Gifts can be either wrapped or unwrapped but should be marked for boy or girl and what age. If you cannot join us and would still like to donate to this cause, you may drop your donation at the Facilitator’s office or put gifts under the tree any time between December 1st & 19th.

Angel103790-300x190If you can, Please join us for some refreshments and mingle with your Brunswick Plantation friends and neighbors while you drop off your gifts or cards.  Thank You!

Golf News from the Pro 10.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

Hello to All:

Welcome to this month’s Golf News from the Pro.

October is here and immediately we all start to think about the holidays coming.  October also means cooler days , which makes it very pleasurable to play golf.

Brunswick Plantation & Golf Resort Superintendent Rob Vaughan and his staff are working hard to return our course back to superb conditions after the recent heavy rains.  Thanks to Rob and his staff for this.

Winter Maintenance

Also, our winter maintenance program kicks off.  It consists of the following:


  • Tee areas will be over seeded with rye grass
  • Fairways and greens will be coated with dye
  • Roughs will remain dormant

Rob was recently featured in Carolinas Green magazine and was given many compliments and was dubbed a “Master Painter” for his experience and knowledge of the dye process.


I would like to congratulate Dave Mambro and Susan Kenny for winning the Club Championships this year.  Well done both of you! Great Playing!  Also, thanks to all of you who made this year’s tournament such a success.

Wishing all of you great experiences on the golf course!

Happy Golfing,


Head Golf Professional

Pro-Shop Manager

Director of Memberships

Pumpkins and Colonists in America

Pumpkins were introduced to the European colonists in the 17th century. They gave them the name Pumpion Or Pumpkin…Originating from the Greek word, “pepon” meaning “large melon”.  Pumpkins are fruits (squash) and belong to the gourd family.  They are closely related to melons & cucumbers.

Plentiful pumpkins were a life-saving food for the colonists. They learned to cook it in a variety of ways.  They feasted on pumpkin stew, mashed pumpkin, & pumpkin beer! Pumpkin seeds were steeped in hot water to brew dark tea…a strong potion used as medicine.Colonists had a little tune about Pumpkins…“We have Pumpkin in the Morning & Pumpkin at Noon. If it were not for Pumpkin, We should be undoon!”

 C. J. Ebel…Golf News in Brunswick Beacon

The fine art of golf club fitting: C. J. Ebel was written by Elsa Bonstein, Golf Columnist for the Brunswick Beacon (Sept. 24, 2015 Edition). Ms. Bonstein says that her interview with C. J. was inspired by hearing about him from several friends that had their clubs retro-fitted or had a Custom-Fitted new Set made by the Golf Club Maestro! She noted that one friend swore that her game had improved fantastically after having her old clubs Custom-Fitted. C. J. Ebel has a growing reputation in the area!

C J Custon ClubMonday, September 30th C. J. opened his New Golf Club Maestro Shop @  6810 Beach Drive S W , Suite A in Sands Plaza at Ocean Isle

Custom Club Fitting…The Golf Club Maestro Way

  1. CJ vert, ClubBegins with…A One or Two Hour Session wherein the Club Fitter Evaluates the Golfer’s Swing & Has him try different clubs.
  2. C. J. Builds the Club, then the Golfer tries it out!
  3. The Club is Fine-Tuned & When it is Perfectly Fitted, C. J. tries to attune the Rest of the Set…So All the Clubs Feel the Same, no matter the length or loft.
  4. A 9-Iron will feel like the five iron; the 5-iron will feel like the driver because the clubs are all Fitted & Tuned to a Specific Swing & Body Type. 
  5. C. J. will often Fit One Club & The Golfer takes it home and tries it for a few days. If he likes it, C. J. moves on to fit more of his clubs.
  6. If it doesn’t work, the golfer brings it back and they start again until they have something that works for that golfer.

C. J. Ebel says it is not necessary to purchase a whole new set of clubs as we age. In most cases, a set of Clubs can be tweaked  by a club fitter so they fit the golfer as his/her body is now.
