Papa’s World – golfing with friends at Carolina National – a Fred Couples course.

Buck Cindy Sherry – getting ready to tee it off!

We journeyed North to Bolivia N.C. to meet up at CAROLINA NATIONAL GOLF COURSE!

Twenty seven holes and a signature Fred Couples course.

Our first time here -and we are golfing different courses each week.

It was a Monday afternoon with 2:12 pm. tee times.

It was a great gold day – high 70’s – slight breeze – blue skies – white and gray clouds –

lots of sunshine and very good friends!

Game on – girls vs boys!

Cindy – teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!
Sherry teeing off – note: BOTH of them always hit it straight down the middle!

They are so hard to beat – never in trouble – down the middle and hitting almost every green in regulation!

And – darn it – one will make the putt!

We really try to beat them – but the first nine – well it was not pretty!

All smiles – ready for the back nine! Time to pull it together! We got off to a good start – going up 2 after the first three holes – and then four by the fifth!
But they started coming back – we pared -they had a birdie!
Going into the last hole – we were up by one!

We got into trouble – they didn’t – they parred – we boggied!

Tied the final nine! Let this one slip through but we had a great time!

Drove to Oak Island – and found a BBQ place still open at 7 pm.

We have been doing this for years – guys vs. gals – always fun – but they are good!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Memories from the last six teen months – Ocean Keyes – S.C. – new home.

On October 1st. 2020 – this became our new home for nine months!

We had no idea we would end up in North Myrtle Neach.

My friend would ask me WHY we choose there?

Well – the best answer I can give is I came across this condo –

on a site that listed houses and condos for sale!

I expanded the search area and this picture or one like it – came into view!

I showed it to Sherry and we decided right there and then we would rent it!

First – for three months – then we extended it to five months –

all because we looked and looked and decided it was just as good to build –

as it was to buy! We could have what we wanted and not upgrade someone’s home!

So – we made our choice in Cameron Woods – across the border into N.C.

It would be a brand new build and we set about making our selections –

and at that time we extended our lease until the end of June!

Which would be a total of nine months!

We tried very hard to stay in this area – but cost and being too close to the Ocean

played a big part in where we ended up!

We are with in four miles to a beach and six miles to another beach!

We can drive one half hour back here to North Myrtle Beach.

We are in a new development – and right in the middle of a dozen golf courses!

We are in the country but a mile and one half to a gas station and a couple miles to a Publix!

In November we signed our contract and made all our selections.

We are on schedule for a early June closing!

We will walk a beach everyday – which has been our dream – we have a community of neighbors we have already met.
Our new home – roof done – siding almost done – stacked stone done – doors and windows – done – plumbing done – electrical done – insulation done – dry wall to start and by the time this is published – will be done – as will most of the inside – outside trim – almost done – utilities – connected – we are almost there!

Papa’s World – golfing Magnolia Greens – home course of friends – beautiful!

Sherry and Cindy – they decided to walk the 18 holes – Sherry got a new pull cart!

I actually believe these 27 holes compare to the best in the area including Myrtle Beach!

On this day – the flowers were in full bloom and reminded me of Augusta!

Almost every hole was like this!
A view of the driving range from the outdoor patio of the clubhouse!
Sherry Cindy and Buck – having a beverage on the outdoor patio after 18 holes!
On one of the tee boxes – everything was blooming!

We have played this course many times over the years!

They have called this home for at least twenty years.

Having bought and sold and built here many times.

This is the main reason we came South to this general area.

Our new home will be about 40 minutes away –

so daily golf is available!

Sherry on the patio of their home that overlooks one of the large waterways on the course!
Cindy on the same patio of their home looking in a different direction from Sherry!
Cindy was to the left – Sherry to my right and Buck straight across from me – looking at the course across the water!

This is the second home they have built here – both in this water area and both had like views –

only this one is downsized from the other one.

Buck and I on the tee box about to tee off!

We – Buck and I – did our usual scramble – and we had a record for us – we shot a 39 with a double boogie the last hole!

If you are ever in N.C. just South of Leland and Wilmington – this is a public course – 27 holes – stop in and make a tee time – it will surprise you and you will love it – one of the best around the area!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

HEALTH and NUTRITION fruits – vegetables – berries – omegas in a capsule.

Papa’s World – just some random thoughts and pictures of the family Krohn.

The Krohn family and Sherry – granddaughters – daughter and son in law.

They have visited for almost a week.

The weather – bearable – low 60’s to low 70’s but with chilly wind.

Marcus and I took Bode out golfing on Monday!

He has pretty good form and Marcus is getting him lessons.

He is only six years old and I think the highlight for him is driving the golf cart! LOL

I told Marcus – you need to get him lessons plus doing cross country

He almost ran the whole golf course!

Taylor Sherry ( MorMor) Bode

They walked to the beach every day.

Most days I would drive the car down as we had all the chairs and beach stuff!

Some days – as in this picture – we all walked carrying the “STUFF”!

Daddy and Taylor – she is a little daddy’s girl!
Cassidy and Daddy – independent little spitfire – but very caring – for her brother and sister.
Bode and Daddy – all boy – trucks – tools – sports – running – full of energy – barefoot – coat less – teasing – BOY!

Yesterday was a full beach day – warm – sun – and kids in the water!

Too cold for me – but in the sun – hot!

Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – notice how Cassidy takes care of Bode!

Such a protective little girl – a heart of warmth!

Carol and Mike John, neighbors for 12 1/2 years in WNY!

We were neighbors and they were Buck and Cindy’s friends.

We lived beside them for 12 1/2 years

We would play jokes on each other.

It was a great time in our lives and the McBrides and us left the hood

shortly after they left and moved South.

We will spend a long weekend with them at the lake house in WNY!

There are times we try to bring us all together to golf.

Wish it would happen more often.

But when it does – it is fun and guys vs. gals!

If we are not on our game – they will beat us! LOL

Papa’s World – ringing in the New Year – Friends and golf – catch phrase!

Cindy Sherry Dottie

Once again we celebrated a new year with friends.

Making sure we all were social distancing

before we met up – and the game was on!

THE GAME – golf – four strokes on the highest handicapped holes per side for the ladies.

Jim and I play from the yellows – Buck and ladies from the reds.

Front nine – with the handicap – 38 – 39 ladies! Par 36.

Jim and Buck

The second nine – 39 to 41 – guys! par 36.

When they are on – they are tough to beat – always down the middle.

Sherry – par three drive – putt for birdie – they all missed the putt! But – you can see – they are tough to beat!
The group of us have been friends for years and years – playing golf is part of that friendship.
Buck Papa Jim – getting ready to tee off.

The second day – same rules – front nine – 39 to 41 – guys!

Different course – and this was a day after playing a game called CATCH PHRASE!

Now – we just not seem to win at this! LOL!

Or the card game which Cindy overtook me on the last hand! LOL

Cindy practice swings before teeing it up!

The second nine – 40 to 44 – guys!

Finally – we were able to beat them after 18 holes the second day –

it had rained all night – course was so wet – you had to have a ball retriever

for the middle of the fairway!

Cindy – getting ready to line up the shot!

Papa’s World – Golfing Leopards Chase – Gold!

Good morning – a cloudy start to our day of golf with friends!

Leopards Chase – Gold course – situated in Ocean Ridge Plantation

Along with THREE other courses – all named after

Big Cats of Prey!

Cindy Sherry Buck on the green – now to select where we are putting from

We have decided to build a house – in the long run –

it will work out the same or cheaper than buying!

The market keeps going up for resales on houses

and we can build and have brand new for the same!

Cindy and Sherry – down the middle is normal for them – Cindy getting yardage to the pin!

And we will build right across the road from this and three other courses

in what is called Cameron Woods!

In fact within a 5 mile radius –

20 golf courses and two beaches

Ocean Isle beach and Sunset beach.

We had searched and searched – condos – houses- apartments

and by chance we found this – and the model –

Sherry once again had her dream home!

And it knocked off about 45 minutes for the drive back to NVA!

Sherry hitting off the middle to the green – water to the left!

All we are waiting for now is the plans to be final

and then a meeting with the construction manager

to go over those plans

and then a start and probable finish date

4 to 6 months start to finish!

By the time you are reading this

we will have already done that!

Buck and me – it was a great time to golf with friends on a very good course – to think there are three more in here and it is a mile from where we will live!
Cindy hitting fro the fairway to the green!

We love this area – the drive to both beaches is less than 15 minutes

Shopping is 6 minutes

Calabash is 15 minutes

and Route 17 is ten minutes.

Our friends house is about 30 to 40 minutes

And a lot of places to dine out on the I.C.W.!

We have extended our stay where we are until the end of June

hoping that the build will be done

We have to buy furniture and move what we have in storage

down here.

Cindy – Buck – Papa – Sherry we are golfing regular now – mostly with our friends – whom we have golfed with for about 30 years!
A lot of the golf cart paths run through the sand – we saw no gators but not sure if they are here or not – but saw signs for snakes!
Cindy and Sherry discussing their next shot as we let a twosome play through – these ladies are serious and hard to tie!

We did not want to go farther South –

we wanted a temperate climate

and still be 7 hours to home!

Bridge to number 18 – the final hole with waterfall!

We have found that place here – among the golf courses and beaches

but still only a 30 minute drive to North Myrtle Beach

which we have become fond of!

Number 18 – Leopards Chase – Gold Course!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

YES THEY BEAT US!

Papa’s World – Walking the streets to beach golf cart parking lot!

The view back toward the community of Ocean Keyes where our leased Condo is.

We have two ways to do our WALK each day.

First – we can take the car – with our chairs and beach stuff

Drive the half mile to the parking lot access.

Where it costs $2.00 a hour to park.

Or – we can walk with or with out the chairs and beach stuff.

The beach and Ocean are just beyond the horizon

This day we decided to walk – leave the chairs and beach stuff behind

and walk the streets – explore a little more

and cross the main street to another beach access.

We walked about a mile North on a side road and then crossed the main street to a beach access we had never been to before

The walk took us along a less traveled street that runs

along side the main street.

Then after 15 minutes of walking we turned toward the Ocean.

And to our surprise –

this parking lot was restricted to GOLF CARTS ONLY!

Seems like there are hundreds of golf carts here.

You are allowed to drive them on any street

that has a speed limit of 35 MPH and under.

You are allowed to cross the streets

that are above that 35 MPH and I assume at red lights only.

Except at the beach access parking lots.

The parking lot – this one did not have bathrooms

or a place to wash the sand off your feet.

We try to find the ones that have both.

Rather than sit inside – we walk – explore –

drive to other areas

and enjoy our new found area.

Usually after dark we watch Netflix for a hour or so.

And once again walking back another route

upon arriving back at the gate to our community

we are greeted with the new Whie Swans and the ducks and Mallards.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
