Hello to All:
Spring is here and we are looking for some beautiful weather here in coastal North Carolina. My staff and I are happy to see everyone playing golf.
- Members may only make starting times in the morning the months of March and April 48 hours in advance. Afternoon times may be scheduled seven days out.
- Also, the pro-shop has been offering a 30% discount on specific items.
- The tee schedule has changed to 7:30-9:40 starting all three tees in the Morning, and 12:20-2:30 in the afternoon. We will have no availability between 9:40 and 12:20 due to the crossing over of are nines.
Late starting times will be available after 4 pm.
Thanks to Golf Course Super Rob Vaughan and his staff for their efforts throughout this unusually wet early spring.
Did you know?
Seventy percent of all your strokes during your round are played from 75 yards and in? So, what does that mean?
Answer: If you want to improve, practice your short game. Golfers spend too much time beating range balls and forget about the important parts of the game. Break your practice time up in two parts. If one practices for two hours spend 25% of your time hitting balls and the other 75% on your short game. Try this for one month and see how your scores plummet!

Beach Music…Also known as Carolina Beach Music, is very popular in North and South Carolina. It has a perfect beat for the Carolina Shag…A dance with a smooth rhythm & gliding steps. Music with a 4/4 “Blues Shuffle” rhythmic structure and moderate-to-fast Tempo is best for the ‘Shag”…”Beach Music” fits that “Beat”!
Beach Music Style
“Carolina Beach Music” combines many Music Genres:
- Rhythm & Blues
- Soul Music
- Little bit of Disco
- Southern Rock
- R & B
- Big Band
- Timeless Country
Beach Music combined with dancing the “Shag” is where people Meet to Greet…The Sand, Sea, and the Warm Southern Breeze of the Grand Strand!
“Beach Music” In the Beginning!
“Beach Music” began to develop as early as 1946! Most people agree that the Ocean Drive section of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina had the most influence with teenagers and college students vacationing at the beach! During time through the mid-1950’s…Young people flocked to the bars and pavilions of the Carolina Beaches where “The Shag” dance was becoming a very popular phenomenon! They loved the R&B along with Jazz instrumentals on the jukeboxes…And the “Beach Clubs” where R&B artists performed Live! The term “Beach Music” began to emerge in the mid-1960’s, and actually was spawned from the memorable experiences of dancing the “Shag” to this music at a variety of venues…By the Sea!
“Beach Bands” are music artists that came into prominence in the mid-1960’s to early 1970’s! They were heavily influenced by the sound of Motown and other leading R&B labels of the day. Many of the bands got their start backing the famous R&B Soul artists who played at the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, the Spanish Galleon, the Afterdeck, Fat Harold’s, and The Beach Club in Myrtle Beach. The Embers Club in Raleigh and clubs in Atlantic Beach were among other popular venues. These venues featured many of the popular regional bands. The Embers, the Tassels, the Catalinas, and the Rivieras are some examples of these popular Bands.
SOS…”Society of Stranders”
The Society of Stranders started in the 1980’s as a small social gathering of “Shag” enthusiasts , “Beach Diggers” & former lifeguards meeting yearly in the Ocean Drive Section of North Myrtle Beach. SOS quickly grew to become a major Spring event!
Around that time a Fan magazine called… “It Will Stand “(from the song of that name by “The Showmen”) began to examine the history of Shag Music. This created an enthusiasm for the Shag and younger artists began to emerge!Some became members of established groups and other formed groups of their own. Dedicated “Beach Music” charts appeared and regional radio stations playing “Beach Music” began to increase.
Jimmy Buffet cites “Beach Music” as a major influence. He paid homage to it on his CD… “Beach House on the Moon“!
Other Shaggers favorites with a “Beach Music” Feel include:
- “Some Beach” By: Blake Shelton
- “Dancin, Shagging On The Boulevard” By: Alabama
- “Need You Now” By: Lady Antebellum
- “When the Sun Goes Down” By: Kenny Chesny
National and International Pop Artists have also contributed to “Beach Music”…Including:
- Rod Stewart
- Kelly Clarkson
- Pharrell Williams
- Robin Thicke
- Justin Timberlake
“Beach Music” Awards shows were sponsored by Virginia entrepreneur , John Aragona, beginning in 1981. These shows featured 20 of Beach Music’s Stars and Groups, ten Los Angeles Based Dancers, 20 professional Shag Dancers, and a twenty-piece Back-Up Band…Performing 50 of Beach Music hits! These shows brought new awareness to the wide appeal of this music!
These “Beach Music” Awards Shows set the stage for the CAMMY Awards Show…First held in Salisbury, NC, moved to Charlotte, NC and the to Myrtle Beach, SC…Where they have an annual event under their new name, The Carolina Beach Music Awards!
The Carolina Beach Music Awards (CBMA), also known as CAMMY Awards Show is now a Five-Day Showcase and party for the Fans & Bands, with shows all along the strip in North Myrtle Beach! It culminates in a show at the Alabama Theatre! Check Out More @ www.cammy.org

Saint Patrick’s Day is on March 17th each year with Celebrations on that day and more! Folks at Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort® have a variety of choices…On the Plantation and beyond it’s gates in Coastal Carolina! It’s our time to honor Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland…As well as celebrating the wit and charm of the Irish!
Saint Patrick…Patron Saint of Ireland
Saint Patrick was born in Britain when it was a part of the Roman Empire. (His birth name was Maewyn and his time was AD 385 – 461) He was from a Roman family in high standing, living in Britain where his father was an army officer in charge of the colonies. His father was also a deacon of the Christian Church. Patrick’s grandfather was a member of the clergy. Though he was from a Christian family, Patrick was not particularly religious as a boy. Patrick was kidnapped around at the age of 16 and served as a slave in Ireland for 6 years before escaping to a monastery in Gaul (France) where he converted to Christianity. According to his own writings in Patrick’s “Declaration”, while he was a slave, he served as a shepherd. It was during that time that he says he personally “Found God”. After leaving the convent and returning to his family in Britain, he later went to Ireland for mission work. Patrick found a a place as a cleric and later a Bishop in the Christian Faith.
While Christianity had already taken hold in Ireland, tradition has it that as Bishop, Patrick confronted the Druids at Tara and abolished their pagan rites. His action made Christianity more widespread. It was after his death that Patrick was named the Patron Saint of Ireland. Celebrations were understated in Ireland at the time. It was when the Irish emigrated to the United States, that they crated bigger celebrations and parades. It was a way for the Irish to connect with their roots after they moved to America…Lucky for us!
Saint Patrick Day Traditions
March 17…Saint Patrick’s Day
The date that Saint Patrick died was March 17, hence the day we celebrate his life! Saint Patrick is buried in Ireland at the Village of Downpatrick. Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for Saint Patrick’s Day! Though it began as a religious holiday, through the years it has become more cultural with numerous celebrations!
Saint Patrick’s Day is now celebrated in many countries including Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, Japan, South Korea, Russia…To name a few! It has also been honored by astronauts in the International Space Station:
- March 17, 2011 by Catherine Coleman with the Irish Flute
- March 17, 2013 by Chris Hatfield dressed in Green!
As they say, on March 17th…Everyone is Irish!
According to Legend…Saint Patrick used The Three Leaf Clover (Shamrock) to explain the Holy-Trinity.
Green for Saint Patrick’s Day
Saint Patrick was originally known for the color blue…Known as Saint Patrick’s Blue. It was in the 17th Century that the color of Saint Patrick’s Day was green for a variety of reasons. There is green in the tri-colored flag of Ireland as well as in the flag of Irish revolutionary groups through history. Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle! Also, the Shamrock, related to the legend of Saint Patrick, is green. The pinching of those not wearing green became an American tradition. It was to be a reminder that the leprechauns might sneak up and pinch anyone not wearing green!
***Dyeing the river Green in Chicago*** This became a Chicago tradition beginning in 1962 and is still honored every Saint Patrick’s Day!

Corn beef and cabbage is an Irish American dish. The early Irish Americans were very poor and could not afford certain meals. The best meal they could afford on that special day was corn beef and cabbage which became a staple for the holiday!
Saint Patrick’s Day Parades
Eighteenth Century Irish soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War held the first Saint Patrick’s Day Parades. These parades took on a different meaning and influence when Irish immigrants came to America. They reminded them of their roots and culture of the Irish!
Now their are Saint Patrick’s day parades in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Savannah, and other cities worldwide! ***We have a Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach on Saturday, March 14, 2015!*** More detail to come in this article!

Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ®, the Two State Solution to Fun welcomes you to Celebrate Saint Patrick’s day with us in Coastal Carolina! Begorrah…May the”Luck of the Irish be With You!
Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® in Calabash, N.C. and minutes from Little River & N. Myrtle Beach, S.C. is Truly the Two State Solution to Fun! Mark and Lou Redrick moved to this lovely, gated golf community in 2005 and feel this is the best moving decision they ever made. They moved here from Chicago and feel like they “Landed on another Planet” With… Great Beaches, Friendly People and Flowers blooming in the Spring!
Discovering Brunswick Plantation
Lou and Mark lived in Chicago and were ready to get out of the snow! They went to Chicago Live South Shows…Now known as Ideal Living Shows. They checked out many other areas and states…Georgia and Tennessee, as well as places in North and South Carolina. They connected with Bob Layding who was there to represent Brunswick Plantation. Bob was from Sommerset, PA. originally, and Lou and Mark had once lived near there in Greensburg, PA.
They liked what was being presented and booked a few days at Commons I to see how they enjoyed the area. They said they felt no pressure and were impressed with what they saw, especially the entrance and beautiful drive the elegant, southern style Plantation House! They said they rang a doorbell to ask a couple living here how they like it, and the couple invited them in to chat. They visited with couple and shared a glass of wine. True Southern Hospitality sold them on living in this beautiful, friendly community!
Lou and Mark say that you buy a Lifestyle! They loved the Southern Architecture and Lifestyle design of Brunswick Plantation! Home prices were low, as well as the taxes! They bought a lot and worked with Todd Helf to design the home where they still live. They felt Todd was easy to work with, and they liked the fact that there are many models and all of the houses don’t look alike. Everything is different…A real southern community! They were able to have the inside design that they wanted with the Carolina room on the other side of the house than the models. It suited them there better and looks bright and cozy! They were also very happy with their construction, even though they were not here all of the time it was being built. They could really trust the builder! Mark and Lou say that they are so Happy living at Brunswick Plantation that “They just pinch themselves” that they should be so Fortunate!
Lou and Mark Redrick have a son, Randy, and a daughter, Renee. Both Randy and Renee live in Asheville, N.C. with their families. Randy lived in Alaska for 10 years before moving to Asheville, NC 2 years ago! Actually, Renee moved to Asheville first and was married there a week after Lou and Mark moved to Brunswick Plantation in 2005! They moved in on a Tuesday and went to Asheville for Renee’s wedding at the Botanical Gardens in Asheville the following Saturday! Carolina is on the mind for this family!
Randy and his wife, Alice, have four children…3 boys and 1 girl: 13 year old Harbin, Milly Lou (10), Quinn (6), and Adler (4)! Renee and her husband, Geoff Jiles, have a six year old daughter, Aria, and a two year old son, Simon. Since they all live in Asheville, North Carolina, Lou and Mark get to see them often…Either in Asheville or at Brunswick Plantation. The grandchildren enjoy visiting their grandparents during the Summer, Spring break and Christmas! There are a lot of Fun things to do in the area…Swimming, Beaches, Driving Range, mini-golf, Alligator Alley, Fort Fisher, children’s museums, and Ripley’s Aquarium, just to name a few!

Lou & Mark…Life Before Brunswick
Mark was originally from Miamisburg, Ohio…A little town South of Dayton. He graduated from the University of Dayton. Lou grew up in Oelwein, Iowa… near Cedar Rapids. After business school, Lou worked for the Wohl Shoe Company and was transferred to Dayton, Ohio as a manager. She was the first woman in the company to be sent to manage the business for them.
Mark had a high school buddy, Denny, who invited him to a Polo match in the area one day. As good luck would have it, another high school friend of Mark’s went to the match and invited Lou, her boss, to go to the match with her. That is how Mark and Lou met for the first time…At their very first Polo match! Seems like they made a Goal Score together that changed their life that day! They have only been to one other polo match years later, but the marriage has lasted much longer. They will celebrate their 42nd Wedding Anniversary on April 14, 2015! “Happy Anniversary” to our Favorite Brunswick Polo Pair!
Lou and Mark had a lovely home in Libertyville, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago, before moving to North Carolina. Moving from the snow was their goal for a new Southern Lifestyle. Brunswick Plantation filled the bill! They still enjoy traveling and Mark is quite a photographer! Some of his photos are displayed in their lovely home on Chatham Court.
Lou is a photographer, also. She works for Lori’s Golf Shop in Calabash…Taking photos of ladies golf, tennis, and other sports clothing that is For Sale online.
