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.

pumpkincolonial-cookbook1framedPumpkin is easy to grow, needing only sun, water, & space. 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.’s desire is to teach golfers how the fine art of golf club fitting can make golf more Fun!  The clubs uniquely crafted to your individual swing WILL…Improve your results club to club, Increase your  Confidence  and LOWER YOUR SCORE! 

C.J. has a real Passion for the Scientific Art of making the Custom Club perfect for the individual golfer. He notes that…Having a relationship with a Golf Fitter is like having a relationship with your doctor.  It’s not just a one-time thing but something that continues for years…As your body changes through the years, your golf club can be tweaked by a club fitter to suit your needs as they are now.

wishon technologyC.J. Ebel uses Tom Wishon Golf Technology, a Leading name in Custom Club Making Design! He was trained in the Wishon method of club fitting. C. J. can rebuild a set of golf clubs Or make a new set from scratch using Tom Wishon technology only! Learn more @ www.WishonGolf.com

C.J. says he enjoys seeing how Happy people get when their game comes together because their clubs are working together in Harmony With Their Swing!  He has developed a Vision and Process that works!

A High Definition Club Maker takes a set of Clubs that are different lengths and makes them so that they require the same amount of Effort to Swing. (Moment of Inertia..Related to Effort & Physical Ability of the Individual Golfer which  Changes as you age.)

***Balance the Shaft for the Timing. Optimize the Banding of the Shaft to the Club Head for the Player’s Swing.

C J & Machines***Measure Weight, Balance, & Parameter to Golfer and Clubs to Each Other.

 Properly Fitted Golf Clubs Include:

  • Length of the Club
  • Weight of the Club
  • Loft of the Head

 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!

Golf Club Maestro…Custom Club Making, Fine Tuning & Repairs

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 www.GolfClubMaestro.com

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.

Asian Girls framed Golf text                  The Art of it All…Ladies Golf Art @ Golf Club Maestro

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.

Golf News from the Pro 9.15 by Brunswick Plantation Living

Golf News from the Pro pic

Hello to All:

With the summer season winding down and events slowly coming to an end, the golf shop would like to thank all of our members for a wonderful summer full of golf, and fun! September is Club Championship Month. Last Year’s Champions Rick Pesavento, and Sue Kenny are looking to defend their title this season.

Rob and his staff have worked countless hours trying to keep our course in the best shape possible. This task has been trying to say the least, due to the large amounts of rain we have endured recently. Thank You Rob! For your efforts, and we all pray for drier conditions for fall golf.

Thanks again to all our members for their participation in our events this year and please continue to support the all aspects of your club. Remember our club is only as strong as the members that support it!

September Events:

Men’s and Ladies Club Championships- September 14th-17th

Golf Tip of the Month

We’ve all done it: You really want to make that 10-footer for birdie (or par), so you give it a good smack. But it steams by the hole, and you’ve got a four-footer coming back, which you leave short. You turned a good hole into a three-jack. You walk off the green muttering to yourself, what an idiot!

To prevent this, think about the way great fast-green putters like Ben Crenshaw and Jack Nicklaus do it. They try to roll the ball the correct distance, which in effect makes the hole wider (so you end up sinking more putts). And it prevents three-putting. We don’t believe in trying to roll the ball at a speed that would send it a foot or two past the cup. A lot of golfers who try to do this hit it too far by the cup.

On down-hillers, it’s easy to let the first putt get away from you. Picture another hole half to two-thirds of the way to the cup. Then focus on rolling the ball the correct speed for the imaginary hole. It rolls out and often finds the real hole. On uphill putts, do the opposite, looking well past the cup. Here’s a practice drill to try. Place two tees directly in front of a hole about an inch apart. Practice hitting putts at just the right pace. Notice how some balls graze the outside of either tee or fall into the side of the hole. This shows that you don’t have to hit the cup dead center to make a putt, provided the ball is rolling at the right speed.

Wishing all of you great experiences on the golf course!

Happy Golfing,


Head Golf Professional

Barbara and Ron…”A Sunny New Life” At Brunswick Plantation

Better Life Collage Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort ® is Blessed with a community of remarkable people that make Brunswick Plantation  perfect place for “A Better Way of Life”! The fascinating folks come here from a variety of places and offer a range of interests and talents to share with friends and neighbors! They say that “Variety is the Spice of Life” that gives it all it’s Flavor! Life at Brunswick Plantation has lots of Spice and Fun for All!

B&Bframed20150824_214026Barbara Dennington and Ron Ellecamp are one of the couples that make Brunswick Plantation the dynamic community we Love! SunflowerloveframedThey have a fascinating story of how they found their Sunny New Life together! sunflower tableBarb has Sunflowers all throughout their home as a tribute to the Sunny Side of Life…Always looking Up and Facing the SUN!

Plenty of Fish

Plenty of FishBarbara and Ron have an enchanting and unique story to tell about first meeting “On Line” through a dating site called  “Plenty of Fish”! How they both entered this website is through their children…Barb’s Son, Jeffrey…Put her on the website & Ron’s son, Dan…Entered Ron on the same website.

At the time, Ron did not even own a computer, so his son, Dan, living in California…Kept up with it for him and kept him posted. Ron, whose wife, Sue, had passed away, was living in The Village of Calabash in North Carolina. He and Sue had moved there from their family home in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, years earlier.

Ron told Dan that he was not going further away than between Shallotte and Little River to meet anyone! After being on the website for his dad awhile…He told Ron that most of the women he saw were all midgets! Ron is 6’5” tall! Then he saw Barbara’s posting and said…”I found someone, Dad! She is 5′ 10” with blonde, curly hair.  She is local and Jewish.” Ron is Methodist and said that didn’t matter, so they connected through Ron’s son!

Barbara, who had raised her three sons largely alone, after divorcing years ago when the boys were ages 6, 7, and 9…Was posted on “Plenty of Fish” by her son, Jeffrey. Barbara had been living in a condo at “The Lakes” of Brunswick Plantation and was not really interested in on-line dating.  She felt she had enough dates. She said, “Don’t put me on the website! I’m not going to do it, and I don’t like it!  I’ll just read what you put on to know what you think of your mother! Jeffery posted Barbara’s Internet name for “Plenty of Fish” as Calabash Babs!

One day a friend of Barbara’s came over and asked about the website. She said, “While I’m here, I’ll tweek it for you! After she looked, she said, “Now, Barbara, Look at this!  Five men want to meet you! Come look at this one…Local, 6’5” tall with a shirtless photo of himself!”

Ron’s son had posted a picture of him shirtless…Which Ron did not even realize! Barbara thought…”Well, any man that age who is willing to post a photo of himself shirtless Must be OK!”

First Date

Bar & Ron 1+ framedBarbara and Ron first met “Face to Face” for lunch at the Boundary House on October 16 in 2010! They say it was one of the longest Lunch Dates in History…Starting with 2 1/2 hours in the restaurant. In the middle of lunch Ron confessed to Barbara…”I don’t even have a computer.  You’ve been corresponding with my son.”  Stunned…Barbara said, “If we meet again, I don’t want to meet your son!” Ron assured her it was all OK!

After eating lunch, Ron asked Barbara if she would like a drink or coffee…Clearly enjoying their time together! Barbara declined the offer but suggested, “Let’s walk down to the Waterfront!”  After their walk, Ron asked, “Would you like that drink now? I have something in the car for you!” He had flowers for Barbara! She was impressed with his 6’5″ & Looks…Plus Flowers! Barbara was also charmed by Ron’s quick wit and spontaneous sense of humor!

BP Lakes CollageBarbara had a meeting with the Landscaping committee at her condo at “The Lakes” of Brunswick Plantation. Barbara told Ron he could come back to the condo…Where he waited quietly while Barbara had her meeting.

Seaside Choir FramedRon then had to go to choir practice at Seaside Methodist.  He asked Barbara when he could see her next.

So the Sunny Relationship Blossomed into Walks with Ron’s arm around Barbara! They went to movies and dinner! Finally, Barbara kissed Ron & They are Together Today…Enjoying Their “Sunny New Life”!

Cruising Into The Sunshine

Barbara & Her Boys…The Move to Brunswick

B&B FramedBarbara had raised her three sons…Mainly by Herself in Long Island, New York.  She was employed as nurse and also worked two other jobs…One in the printing business & for the Board of Elections.   However, she said the boys had set rules and regulations.  She kept up with all of the their interests and activities with her love and support. Barbara also taught them to…”Work Hard…Like Mom!

Barb’s sons finished college, the service, whatever apprenticeships they chose.  They then got jobs and moved away though 2 of the 3 still call her every day or every other day. Twelve years ago her son, Jeffrey called and asked Barbara to set extra plates for their Hanukkah Dinner. After dinner he said, “Let’s Give Mom her present!” Then Barbara’s sons…David , Marc, and Jeffery took the serving tray and slid the glass out with pictures of Mom and her Boys. There was a poem by Jeffrey And a Letter from All of Her Boys/Young Men!The letter said, “We realize how hard you’ve worked! It’s time for you to retire. We’ll make sure it happens!”

BP Flower CollageBarbara decided that she wanted to go where it is warm. She checked out Georgia and then Florida. Jeffrey said concerning Florida, “Does Mom look like an Early Bird Special?” So, they decided on looking at North and South Carolina. After getting information from Brunswick Plantation for $25 a night with a two hour tour…Jefferey called David, told him about this “Great Special” and David came with Mom to Brunswick Plantation! They rented 2 condos to stay in with the family. They had looked at 10 other places in North & South Carolina. As soon as they drove through the gate at Brunswick Plantation, Barbara said she knew this is where she wanted to live! Everything was in bloom! People here were the most outgoing and Friendly!

Barbara had her choice of 3 our of the 4 condos in the new Lakes Buildings. Her sons convinced her to get a downstairs unit.  She was the only permanent one in that building in the first three years but people were so neighborly! People in the next building…Welcomed them with a drink!

So, Barbara retired in May of 2005, sold her house in June of that year and moved to Brunswick Plantation in July of 2005! Her sons helped her buy her condo that she has now rented and put in their names. Barbara’s family now includes her sons and their families. Marc & Marie live in Long Island, NY with their son Marc (15) & Daughter,  Ashely (18). David and Leeza live in Michigan with their son, Graeme (8).  Jeffrey and Meli live in San Diego, California.

Framedsunlaughl_03a76080-999d-11e1-8d93-159808400004Barbara said that when she put the key into the condo door, she went into a funk & cried. At first she had little furniture, but her sons called every day. Finally, one day Barbara woke and said…”You can put your feet in the water anytime of year!” Her plants & books became her children, and she got involved in activities and met a variety of interesting people at her new home! She has Loved it ever since! She says …Her Heart is Always at Brunswick Plantation! Though Barbara and Ron lived in Spring Mill when they were first together, they have recently bought a house in the Georgetown area….Their Sunny new Home for Their Sunny New Life Together!

Loving Living at Brunswick Plantation

KindnessThere are several things Barbara & Ron Love about Living Brunswick Plantation.  It is such a Beautiful and Friendly Community!Years ago, on a trip to Italy, Barbara had a serious leg injury from a fall. She had to have serious surgery to replace a broken femur that was replaced by a rod in her leg. She could not even sit in a car! She was living in her Lakes condo at the time. She said that everyone was So Helpful.  They did everything they could for her and her family! This included feeding folks, rides to and from the airport for her family…Sons, Sister Elyane and Brother-in-law.  They were wonderful to Barbara and her family! Inspired by that kindness, in 2005 Barbara started a Widows & Orphans Thanksgiving.  She provided the turkey and house, drink & paper goods and Everybody brought something to celebrate! Kindness begets Kindness!
