I gave up golfing, no time and even less talent. My dad built golf courses though, and the new clubhouse and lake Pinehurst and renovated the Carolina, etc. I was just on G-maps checking out the old 'hood and noticed that our lake has a name: Blue Pond. We just called it "the lake". There is a golf course now where we lived, they used our old house as the clubhouse for a few years, then tore it down. It was a 100 year old 6,000 SF 2 story log cabin with a fireplace in every room, damn shame they tore it down. Pinewild was the name of the "farm" and is now the name of the course.
I also loved the coast and spent a lot of time in Wilmington (Carolina Beach, actually).
