We recently finished building a house and they sowed the yard yesterday. I am hoping all of this rain doesn't wash all of the seed away!

Everyone be careful and stay dry!:thumbsup:

Yeah we are playing Byrd, Jones and Maples and get 4 rounds to play. We are thinking about staying about 10 minutes north of there and staying at the Brunswick plantation which will save us about $50 per person (but still playing Sea Trail courses).

I don't know that area at all....any advice?....and is there anything to do in the evenings during the week and offseason? We are going Mon-Thursday in December.


Yeah, that's what a big group of me and my friends do, except we go in early May... Brunswick Plantation is nice for the money. There's nothing to do right there at night, but you will be 20 minutes from North Myrtle, 30 minutes from Myrtle if you take the SC31 Bypass, and 45 from downtown Wilmington.

The Sea Trail courses are all nice. I don't care for Maples all that much, but last time I played there, all three were in good shape.
I recommend Crow Creek and Farmstead as well... they are both 5 minutes from Brunswick Plantation and are both fantastic. Farmstead has a 600+ yard par 6.

PM me if you want if you have specific questions.

Is it really that bad?

The 4 of us who are going all have a taste for the "nightlife" (ok, we are raging alcoholics who think we are still 21). A cab ride into each night into North Myrtle sounds like it might get a bit expensive.

No he's right... there's literally nothing there at BP... so it's a cab ride to NMB or stay in the room and drink.

Yea, there is nothing between ILM and Little River, JR. Just pine forest.

Well, there is that Hardees in Supply... but somehow I don't think that's the kind of night life JR was looking for.

Sh*t.....a thick burger and fries can be very comforting after an all night bender. Then from that Hardees you've only got about 30 minutes to the titty bars. :auto:

I am still not sure why we are not staying near something to do at night and driving to the golf courses during the day. That would make more sense to me.

No kidding. The way you guys are doing it is like wiping before you poop.

I seriously wanna hear the stories from this trip if who's going is who I think it is.


And JR can run over to Calabash and go to the year round Christmas store. That's minutes of excitement.

You can buy Christmas stuff year round? I have often dreamt of this type of store but have all but given up on ever finding one. You just can't beat pine scented oven mits in July.
