River Course Has Surprise Eagles
Ed Zupko likes the type of bird that resided on the River Course: "I have always blamed the maintenance people for my bad golf scores because they put the holes in the wrong spots. Well, today (1/20/15), they did something great for me. They were working on the 7th hole on the River course so they moved up the tee boxes. I had my first eagle ever on that hole today. I know it probably deserves an asterisk next to it, but it was still my first and we know you never forget your first."
Trip to North Shore Golf Club
Thursday (1-22-15) the gang of four (Henry B, Frank D R, Bob F, and Gary W) headed to check out the North Shore Golf Course by playing 18 Holes. The day was great and course a good challenge with unexpected water obstacles popping up when least expected. The greens were like River Landing with plenty of challenges to hold the green when getting on and putting (fast is a good term). Certain holes presented senic views of the coastal inlet. The round cost $29 for green fee, cart and sandwich. The drive time was 50 - 55 minutes from the River Landing Front Gate. Check it out.
Planning for THIS summer:
Near Holden Beach. Intercoastal views. 1hr. 25 min
Timberlake was our most attended outing last year.
Our members always seem to like this course

Vandiver says he likes this course
Local. Offers chance to come back to Pizza Corner afterwards as group.
Recently reopened. Has anyone played and could give us a report?
Two courses. We have played both.
Nearby toward Jacksonville. Pretty good course.
Ocean Ridge Plantation
Carolina National in Bolivia:
Mikee has a son at a course in Raleigh. Mikee thinks we could set up a time to play there and then they come here...any interest?
Would you go on an overnight with golf in the PM and then AM?
