Fundraiser at St. James Community Center STORY BY LISA STITES

I

t seems like everyone is or knows a foodie these days, and a school fundraising event coming up this month is the perfect place to dazzle those foodie tastebuds. You can graze your way through tastings from about 20 of the area’s favorite restaurants and bakeries and help support a local school at the same time.

Round up your friends and come to our Spring Open House! Everybunnies welcome!

Southport Christian School’s annual Taste of Southport/Oak Island is scheduled for Friday, March 15, at 6 p.m. at the St. James Community Center, 4136 Southport-Supply Road SE. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Call 910-457-5060 for ticket information. Lisa Kjome, the school’s principal, said typically 250 people attend the Taste of Southport/Oak Island. The school’s students and their parents help serve up the tasty treats and generally run the evening. “Our parents chair and run the entire event, collecting auction donations and restaurant and bakery donations for the tastes,” Kjome said. “There are over 40 volunteers that work the event that evening.”

NEW SPRING PRODUCTS Specials Giveaways Refreshments

The annual event is the school’s major fundraiser, and money raised helps fund the operating budget and cover annual technology equipment and upgrades. This year, the fundraiser is aimed at helping to fund a new campus security project. The evening will also include a silent auction and a live auction featuring items such as artwork, furniture, vacation getaways and spa services. “It is a vital source of revenue to enrich and enhance the education of our 150 students on campus,” Kjome said.

Spring Into Health

Embrace exercise and join the 5K race STORY BY LISA STITES

I

f you’re one of the many people who resolved to make this year a healthier one and are looking for ways to keep your resolutions, the Brunswick Wellness Coalition has an event just for you.

The Spring Into Health 5k/1 mile race on Saturday, March 23, is the perfect way to push through the winter blahs and bring on spring. The race steps off at Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport. This event is not a fundraiser - it’s a way to encourage everyone in the community to embrace a healthier lifestyle, according to a release from the Coalition. Walking 30-60 minutes a day can have tremendous health benefits and this event is meant to demonstrate that anyone can stay active. This race is open to all ages and levels

of experience, and the cost to enter is only $10 before February 25, and $20 after that. Entry is free for children younger than 13. Participants are asked to donate at least one non-perishable healthy food item to help support the “Give Healthy” campaign. Food will be donated to the pantry at Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc. A list of items that qualify are listed on the race website at www.brunswickwellness. org/springintohealth. Participants may use this same link to register or volunteer for the event.

Last year’s race had 225 racers, following a route which meanders through downtown Southport. Hamilton Realty Group and Omega Sports are race sponsors; Omega Sports is providing gift cards to the top three overall male/female race winners, best individual costume, best decorated stroller and best team costumes. Runners can wear any costume, but are encouraged to use a healthy food theme, maybe even dressing as a fruit or vegetable, according to Brunswick Wellness Coalition Executive Director

Lindsay N. Maher, MPA. The Brunswick Wellness Coalition, formed in 2017, is a united group of individuals and health-minded leaders with the mission to improve the health of our community, and the vision of becoming the healthiest county in North Carolina, according to a release from the Coalition. BWC is made possible by Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas, an initiative of The Duke Endowment, working with county-level coalitions across the state to improve health.

Band Scholarship Frank Mahoney’s legacy lives on STORY BY LISA STITES

B

runswick Bands is offering a scholarship in memory of one of the Band’s long-serving members. The Frank Mahoney Young Artist Scholarship is the group’s first annual scholarship offering. Mahoney joined Brunswick Bands shortly after he and wife Joyce retired and moved to St. James in 2002. Frank was a lifelong musician, and led and played trumpet in his own dance band before he was 20 years old. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in music education, and worked as a high school music teacher and band director in Florida and Mississippi. He resumed music leadership roles with Brunswick Bands, playing in the concert band and leading the Brunswick Big Band. He also served in leadership roles in the Sea Notes Choral Society. The $1,000 scholarship is designed to

aid a student who is continuing participation in music, either through school or with other organized ensembles. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating Brunswick County senior wind or percussion musician who has been accepted to an accredited college/university or technical school. The student must have participated in high school band or external community band program for a minimum of three years. Applications are available from the guidance departments at North, South, and West Brunswick High Schools, and Brunswick County Early College. Applications may also be downloaded from the

Brunswick Bands’ website, www.brunswickbands.org. The completed application and school transcript must be submitted to the students Guidance Office by March 15, 2019 and the scholarship winner will be announced at the Brunswick Bands spring concerts on April 6 and 11. Brunswick Concert and Big Bands perform throughout Brunswick County. Currently the Brunswick Concert Band has

approximately 60 members ranging in age from 15 to 80. The Music Student Assistance Program encourages and supports band participation. The group accepts donations of instruments from the community, has them refurbished and loans them to students who cannot afford to purchase or rent instruments. For more information, please contact Dan Corsi at 412-580-6501.

Sandy Soil Solutions Tips for successful crops on the coast STORY BY AMI BROWN

B

eing on the coast provides gardeners with quite a few challenges. Since water drains quickly through sandy soil, washing away plant nutrients makes growing conditions harsh for many vegetables and fruits. However, root crops often grow well in the loose texture that sand provides, and other crops may thrive with a little extra attention. For the best results, add plenty of compost, leaf mold, mushroom compost or other organic matter to improve water retention, and fertilize.

Growing Root Vegetables in Sandy Soil Carrots, radishes and potatoes are some vegetables that shrug off the challenges that other crops face when growing in sandy soil. Carrots and radishes are tap-rooted vegetables that grow best when their roots can penetrate the ground easily. Clods of soil can distort the root development of

carrots, and the longer radishes. Potatoes also flourish in sandy soil, though this is partly due to the fact that it’s acidic. Leafy Vegetables - For success with growing leafy vegetables in sandy soil, plant lettuce and collard greens. Both of these plants are hardy, and they tolerate the dryness of sandy soils better than oth-

er green vegetables. Remember to water regularly, especially on hot or windy days, so that the ground around the plants’ roots never dries out. Collard greens grow best in spring, when sandy soils warm up more quickly than clayey or loamy soils. Tomatoes, Zucchini and Corn - are summer crops that flourish in the warmth and good drainage of sandy soil. Tomatoes are perennial plants that are hardy, but they’re usually grown as annuals in summer. Zucchini and corn are annual summer crops that are hungry feeders, so don’t neglect

their fertilizer requirements when growing them in sandy soil or they may not produce a heavy crop. Herbs - Many herbs grow best in the good drainage and slightly acidic conditions that sandy soil provides. Thyme thrives in rocky, sandy and loose soils. Rosemary and oregano are two more sand lovers. Grow all three herbs in full sun, except for oregano varieties that have golden or variegated foliage, which require some shade during the hottest part of the day. Source: HomeGuides.com

rom the pristine fairways to the smooth putting greens, Eagle Point Golf Club is a dream come true for any golfer.

Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, adjacent to Figure Eight Island, Eagle Point gives golfers plenty of remarkable scenery to take in as they play. Eagle Point is the home to the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra’s 22nd An-

and surrounding counties. “Our mission is to provide performance opportunities to local instrumentalists,” says Breana Aldrich, development director for the WSO. “We also offer seven education programs, two of which are the Wilm-

CURRENTS ington Symphony Youth Orchestra and the Junior Strings.” The Junior Strings is a program suited for middle school students, while the Youth Orchestra is for high school students. Each year, students in both programs can compete in the Richard R. Deas Student Concerto Competition. The winner from the junior division will get the chance to perform amongst the Youth Orchestra, and the two winners from the high school division will be able to perform amongst the Wilmington Symphony in the Wilson Center at a concert to be determined. The proceeds from the Golf Classic will help provide financial support for these programs and many others. “If not for these programs, not all kids would have the opportunity to play in an orchestra,” explains Nicole Thompson, marketing and operations director. “The WSO wants to bring like-minded individuals together and help them grow. Kids of various ages, coming from six different counties, all get a chance to participate.” More information about these youth programs can be acquired at their

website, under the WSO Youth tab. If this isn’t enough incentive for playing a round of golf, would it help to know that Eagle Point was the location for one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world? Yes, In 2017 the PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship was hosted here. Golf legend Phil Mickelson even went on record saying, “This place is really special and is a great place for our tournament.” If you want to get registered to play on a team, feel free to give the WSO a call, or visit their website for more information; seize this opportunity while you can, there are a limited number of team slots. If, unfortunately, you get to the registration too late, no worries! There’s always next year! For those of us who aren’t golf fanatics, but are interested in contributing, donations and volunteers are greatly appreciated. In addition, the Orchestra offers a couple of other noteworthy fundraising events, such as a luncheon, and the 6th annual Beethoven 15K/5K. It takes a multitude of people, all working diligently to orchestrate these events but for them, it’s

a pleasure. With the population of our region growing at an exponential rate, the Orchestra has also grown rapidly in recent years. It now showcases seven concerts a year, and performs in the Wilson Center to accommodate bigger audiences. Dr. Steven Errantes, conductor of the Orchestra, reminisced upon the orchestra’s humble beginnings, “I remember when I started in 1986, the Symphony’s main office was literally just a phone on someone’s front porch; now we employ many people.” When asked, what the WSO means to him, Dr. Errantes had this to say: “I love orchestra music, being a conductor allows me to share this love. I used to drive my friends crazy by playing orchestra CD’s around them, now I get to conduct this beautifully profound music in front of an auditorium full of people. But what’s really special is that every Thursday I get to teach in front of eighty-five high schoolers. They are the music lovers of tomorrow.” When it comes to the WSO there is a lot to look forward to, such as, Sto-

HEALTH Swing Into Spring Preparing your body for the round STORY BY BRIAN TULLY, MS, EP-C

S

pring is just around the corner, which means beautiful weather and rounds of golf are also on the way. Below are a few things to help you be better prepared to hit the links for your upcoming round and each round after that one.

WARM-UP (PRE-ROUND)

A good warm-up is probably one of your most important steps before playing a round of golf. A good warm-up will decrease your chance of injury and improve performance. It does this by increasing the elasticity of the muscles, moving synovial fluid to the joints (think lubrication), brings blood (fuel and energy) to the muscles, and prepares the body to move more smoothly through the needed range of motion of a swing.

Think of the elasticity of a rubber band coming out of a freezer…not very elastic right? Your muscles are in a similar state prior to warm-up. Not the best state to be in before you wind up and swing for the green with your driver. When warming up, focus on increasing your overall body temperature, warm muscles are more pliable and ready for action. Gentle movement of the joints is also key to a good warm-up; focus on neck, shoulders, wrists, hips, and ankles…even if you are short on time, this

practice will help your game tremendously, as well as limit injury.

HYDRATION (BEFORE, DURING, & AFTER)

Even mild dehydration can impair distance, accuracy, and distance judgment during your round of golf. Proper hydration is a daily requirement and if you stay

HEALTH with in the proper guidelines each day you are more likely to prevent the ill effects from it on the course. Your goal (ballpark) should be about half your bodyweight in ounces each day. For example, a 200 lbs male should aim for 100 ounces of water per day. This is your baseline. However, you will want to consume additional ounces to account for any alcohol or caffeinated drinks you consume; as well as for sweat lost during hot weather or physical activity. And it is also important to spread the intake out over the course of the day. Which means start your round hydrated, replenish during the round as you are sweating out fluids, and continue after the round to insure recovery. A good indicator of proper hydration is your urine color, it should be light yellow.

FUEL (BEFORE, DURING, & AFTER)

During a typical round of 18 holes the average male golfer will burn approximately 600-700 calories. To keep body fueled for maximum power and control, it is best to consume a balanced meal about 1 hour prior to your round. It should be a balanced meal, meaning it includes protein, carbohydrate, and healthy fats. A good example would be eggs, and a slice

SOLD $307,000

of whole grain toast with smashed avocado. To keep your fuel steady during the round, you will want a snack or two. Nothing huge, just enough to keep your blood sugar stable and your muscles primed. Here would be a good spot for a piece of fruit (banana or apple…which are easy to transport) and a handful of almonds or a small meal replacement bar. Post round is the perfect time to reload the body with another balanced meal. This will help your muscles be ready to repair and re-energize for whatever the rest of your day has in store…and of course make sure you are ready for your next round.

HAVE FUN

Enjoy the time bonding with your fellow golfers, appreciate being outdoors in the fresh air surrounded by nature, embrace the amazing abilities of a properly warmed up, hydrated, and fueled human body as you smack that little white ball long and straight at the pin.

SAVOR Oh My, Oysters

Business booming on Moore Street STORY BY KASS FINCHER

F

ew restaurant openings in downtown Southport have been more highly anticipated than that of the Moore Street Oyster Bar. After months of renovations, owner Suzanne Landis opened the doors in November last year, and business has been nonstop.

The building downtown was erected in late 1887 and was the home of Dr. D. I. Watson’s Pharmacy until 1960. Over the next almost-six decades, the space was occupied by various shops and restaurants, the last being The Pharmacy restaurant. Oliver and Suzanne Landis, owners of Olivers on the Cape Fear, had a dream of opening an oyster bar downtown. Although Oliver passed away before they could complete their dream, Suzanne persisted in making it happen. With beautifully renovated exposed brick and a classy ambiance, the space has surpassed expecations, and with an upscale bar menu, the restaurant has become an instant success. Though it claims to be a sports bar, the Oyster Bar is much more. General manager Steve Esakov and chef Dustin Garrett are dedicated to providing an exciting menu in a fun, informal atmosphere. Chef Garrett began his career at age 16 as a prep cook under a Frenchtrained executive chef. Now, ten years later, he draws on those French influences to prepare the creative offerings at the Oyster Bar. Of course, oysters and steamer pots are at the heart of the bar’s menu. Around four or five oyster choices change regularly, with the blackboard describing your

options. A couple of very popular choices are the Blue Points and the James River oysters. The Blue Points come from Long Island, New York and Connecticut and have a satiny, mild flavor with a fresh, firm texture. The James River oysters are wild caught, available year-round. They are mild and meaty, making them perfect for stuffing, grilling or baking. Once you make your oyster choice, you have more choices for toppings on those delectables. There’s pimento (classic southern), casino (bacon, peppers and onions), drago (parmesan, garlic, butter), southern rock (collards, ham, bacon) and Sriracha (garlic, parmesan and sriracha sauce). Of course chef Garrett makes your decision even tougher by introducing an oyster du jour, a daily creation promised to delight. If you prefer other shellfish choices, steamer pots are fun to share. You can choose from clams, mussels, crab, lobster, shrimp and crawfish. Once again, you make it your own by selecting seasonings like cajun, lemon pepper, creole or old bay, and add sides such as corn on the cob, sausage or potatoes. While you make up your mind, you can catch the sports on one of the many TVs, or watch real-time food preparation by the

oyster shucker deftly working at the bar. Or you can choose to forego oysters and go a different route. The lobster grilled cheese and the cioppino – with succulent shellfish, tomatoes and crostinis – are local favorites. Popular appetizers include the ahi tuna and lobster rangoons. For the non-seafood lovers, there are salads, wings, burgers and chicken sandwiches. The staff at the Oyster Bar works well as a team; many worked together at Oliver’s and came here after that restaurant had to shut down temporarily due to hurricane damage. Since Oliver’s will be re-opening in mid-April and some of those employees will be going back there, the Oyster Bar will be hiring some new employees to fill in, to get ready for the new peak season. Recognizing they have challenges with limited space – capacity is 50 people – management at the Oyster Bar is working to improve service. They don’t take reservations, but if you arrive and the restaurant is full, they will take your number and text you when you can be seated. So you can shop or wander the riverfront while you wait! The bar is also looking for ways to

reach out beyond those they can actually serve at the restaurant. Under development is an online ordering process, aimed at providing steamer pots or other choices to wedding parties and other groups who come to town and want take-out or delivery. Sunday brunch is another potentially new addition this spring. While perusing your meal options at the Oyster Bar, one can choose from the wide selection of libations, including the required oyster shooter. And you know what they say about oysters. As the Moore Street Oyster Bar menu warns us: “Consuming oysters and alcohol may cause pregnancy!” Or, if not, it will most likely produce a warm, fuzzy feeling for your companion.

CHEERS

What’s in Your Beer? Boiling it down to the simple truth STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEFF STITES

B

ud Light’s recent ad campaign, launched during the Superbowl in commercials featuring their medieval characters, has me thinking about why they thought it would work. Say what you want about Anheiser Busch’s beers, they know advertising as well an anyone. So I trust that this ad campaign touting the fact that they don’t use corn syrup and boldly listing ingredients on their packaging will appeal to consumers. The trouble is, it’s all a bunch of silliness if you know how beer is brewed. I think the Bud Light folks are assuming the average beer drinker really does not know much about the brewing process. I just can’t let that stand, at least not among faithful Southport Magazine Cheers column

readers. I will be using the Bud Light ads as a reference point, not to criticize the ads or the beer. There is nothing blatantly false in the ads and there is nothing inherently wrong with the way they brew their beer.

36 Southport Magazine / MARCH 2019 / www.SouthportMag.com

Southport Magazine 2016-2017 SOI Chamber Small Business of the Year Winner


CHEERS It’s just that what they leave out means a lot if you want to appreciate the wide variety of beers in the world and the differences that may make you enjoy one variety more than another. Let’s start with beer’s ingredients. Beer is, at its most basic, water, a malted grain (traditionally barley), hops and yeast. The first attempt to legislate a beer standard was the Rheinheitsgeboot beer purity law of 1500s Bavaria that mandated beer contain nothing but water, barley, yeast and hops. The Bud Light package lists barley, rice, hops and water. I can’t imagine why they omit yeast, except that it kind of ties into the corn syrup angle they use to compare themselves to competitors Miller Lite and Coors Light. More about this later in the brewing process. The old German lawmakers would scoff at the rice, which is used to make the beer taste less, well sorry to say it, but less like beer. Rice gives you a much lighter, less robust flavor and color and has become a hallmark of mass-

produced American light lagers. But how do we turn this small combination of ingredients into delicious beer? First the barley (and/or other grains) is heated, dried and cracked open. It is then soaked in very hot, but not boiling, water where the sugars in the grain are dissolved into the liquid, now called wort. The entire thing is strained and the wort is now boiled with hops, which adds flavor and acts as a preservative. This ends the brewing process and now we move onto fermentation. Yeast is added and the new beer is left to sit at room temperature for a couple weeks if one is making an ale, or refrigerated and left for many weeks if one is making a lager. During this time the yeast eats the sugars and releases alcohol and carbon dioxide as waste products. Yep, beer is full of yeast poo. The beer is then filtered (or sometimes not), packaged and left to age while the carbon dioxide develops into bubbles. That’s it, ready to drink! But wait, you say, where does the corn

syrup controversy come into this? And why isn’t yeast listed as a Bud Light ingredient? I think the two are related. Corn syrup is basically sugar. It is used by brewers in some beers at the fermenting stage to give the yeast a little shot in the arm, something more to munch on, if you will. Thing is, when the beer is finished, the corn syrup no longer exists. It’s been eaten by the yeast and turned into alcohol and bubbles. So, while it is used in the creation of some beers, is it really an ingredient if it isn’t present in the final product? I suspect this is why yeast doesn’t make the cut on the Bud Light list of ingredients. It too is gone, and its remains filtered out, by the time that cold Bud Light hits your glass. I think that if the AB guys are going to imply that their competitors’ beers contain corn syrup, they don’t want to talk about yeast’s role in the beer brewing process. Maybe I’m over-thinking this, but I believe it’s good to know why advertisers

make the choices they do, and it is always a good idea to understand what you are drinking. There is no right or wrong way to brew beer as long as you enjoy the end product. That’s one of the joys of beer. You can use just those four ingredients and produce anything from a super-light, effervescent, hoppy ale to the deepest, darkest, smoothest malty stout. It’s simply a matter of proportions and the length of time you roast your grains. And there’s no reason to stop there. Rice, wheat and rye all make great additions to barley. Fruits can be added along with the hops. Or chocolate. Or coffee. Or chili peppers. Just take a trip to your favorite bottle shop and you’ll see that brewers’ imaginations have no limits. They aren’t all my favorites or even things I’ll drink more than once, but I truly appreciate all the diversity in today’s beer options, and I hope knowing a little bit about the process encourages you to open your palette to some of this variety.

ART BEAT Beauty in the Details Local photographer, Terrah Hewett spectacularly captures nature STORY BY CARLA EDSTROM

A

couple months ago, one of my friends posted a photo on Facebook by a local photographer featuring a sunrise over Holden Beach, and it took my breath away. Living so close to the beach I’ve seen a lot of beach sunrises and sunsets, but there was just something special about this one. The vibrant colors, the birds, the waves crashing-it all made me more relaxed and I swear I could hear the seagulls sing and see the grasses sway. “I come from a very artistic family. My uncle was a professional photographer,” said Hewett. “When I was growing up, I used to follow him around thinking he had some sort of magic powers. Looking back it’s so funny,” she laughed. “I think what I learned most from my uncle is to never stop learning. I can remember him saying if you think you know everything there is to know about photography, you need to lay your camera down and walk away, and that’s always in the back of my mind.” Every day, Hewett posts a ‘wake up call’ picture on her Facebook page that she has taken that day, weather permitting. “Photography has always been my passion and also my career but to call it a job would seem impassionate. I think photography is an art and you need an artist eye and heart to draw people to you and to feel emotions when they see your work,” she said. “I have had people comment on my photos on Facebook that has brought me to tears many times and as long as that keeps happening, I’ll keep sharing a ‘wake up call’ every morning,” said Hewett.

Photo by Terrah Hewett

It was like a painting in a gallery that you just stand and stare at momentarily getting caught inside the frame. I was simply amazed that she somehow captured one moment in time where all the elements of this photo may never come into play ever again. So, of course I had to look up this amazing artist and see more of her work and try to find out what makes her tick. Her name is Terrah Hewett, and her natural ability to know exactly when and where to take the perfect shot is a gift she has nurtured and grown into over her lifetime. “I can remember as a child while looking out the car window I always said ‘that would make a pretty picture’,” she explained. “I attended Brunswick Technical College, but have never attended an art school nor had formal training. My knowledge has been through online courses but mostly has come through in the field shooting using my innate artistic talent and abilities, something in my opinion, that cannot be taught.” Growing up in a creative family, Hewett has spent a lot of time mastering her gifts.

Her lifelong admiration of nature and the wild has directed her work mainly outside. “I love nature; I’ve been that way since I was old enough to walk,” she said. “I’ve always been drawn to animals and they to me. There are stories from my childhood of animals following me home. I even had a turtle follow me home from a pond near my home and there was a neighbor’s horse that would wake me up standing by my bedroom window in the early morning a couple times a week,” said Hewett. “There’s absolutely nothing like waking up with nature; watching and listening to all the wildlife coming alive and the colors exploding all around. Watching Great Egrets floating down from the trees to start hunting for breakfast.” These are the things that influence Hewett’s work and create her once in a lifetime photographs. Hewett’s passion and love for the area are evident in her work and has helped her win many awards. “One of my proudest moments was being published in Our State Magazine in Nov 2017. I love shooting the shrimp boats coming and going on the Lockwood Folly river and one morning I captured one going out for the day, it was a foggy morning and I got

her just as she crossed in front of the sun,” said Hewitt. Hewett offers her expertise and advice to budding artists and photographers. “Find what you’re passionate about and put your heart and soul into it. You have to feel it. If you don’t, then those looking at your work won’t either.” Great advice! You can reach Hewett by email terrah@ atmc.net, and find her work available for purchase at terrah-hewett.fineartamerica.com.

Q: How can I successfully engage my customers? —Jennifer T., Southport

A: Throughout the buyer’s journey, your business has opportunities to emotionally engage with your prospects and customers. To succeed at it, you must be cognizant of those occasions to shine, and guide your team in what they can do to make the most of those moments. Here are the 3 keys to delivering a winning customer experience: • Listen to your customer - really listen. Take the time to fully understand what your prospects and customers need.

• Make your brand relatable. Your marketing and branding efforts offer many channels for demonstrating that there are people - real people - behind your logo. When you make your website content, blog posts, and social media posts conversational rather than stiff and impersonal, people will find your brand more human and relatable. • Learn to tell a great story. Consider creating case studies and success stories of how your products and services have made a difference in your customers’ lives. Video testimonials can be particularly effective, as they show real people expressing their experience with your company. And don’t forget about your business’ behind-thescenes stories. Consider crafting write-ups, photos, and videos of your team members. Call SCORE Cape Fear at 910-452-5395 for more information and to set up a free mentoring session.

HISTORY Behind the “Fore!”

Golfing Terms Uncovered; Thank You Scots STORY BY KASS FINCHER

L

ike many sports, golf has some unusual terminology. If you play a round or two, you may encounter (or use) some or all of these terms. But you may not know where they came from. The website Scottish Golf History gives us a glimpse of how golf vernacular originated.

Most historians agree that the sport of golf originated in 1457 in Scotland. It was first mentioned in documents written by King James, who actually banned the sport in favor of archery. The word “golf” itself is derived from various Scottish words mean-

ing “club.” The sport was played on land referred to as “links,” which was any rough, grassy area between the sea and the land. Since the land was not suitable for agriculture, it proved to be a good choice for the sport. Over time, as the grassy areas were

groomed to provide better conditions for the golfer, the natural rivers and sandy areas in the links were transformed into what golfers now know – and fear – as water and sand hazards. If you’re on the PGA tour, which most of us are not, you benefit from the help of a personal caddy. The term caddie derives from the French word “le cadet,” meaning the boy or the youngest of the family. In 18th century Scotland, the caddie was an errand boy for hire who carried water or other items. By 1857, the caddie was strictly one who carried clubs. Much later in history, the term “birdie” for one stroke under par apparently came into use in this country in the early 20th century. At the time, the word “bird” was slang for something that’s excellent. It was only natural that the word for an even more excellent shot of two under par – “eagle”– would be named after the premier symbol of our country. Not many have heard of it, but the “albatross” shot of three under par, a rare event indeed, is named for that rare bird. Speaking for those of us who play the sport badly, we may not get to use the terms birdie, eagle, or even par very often. But we may find ourselves shouting “fore!” to clear the way for a poorly driven ball off the tee, hoping the pronouncement will clear us of a personal injury lawsuit in the future. Not sure about that, but the term has a bit of a debate over its origins. One theory is that the word arose from

a shortened form of “forecaddie,” the person who stood where the ball was supposed to land. In the 19th century, balls were expensive and this person prevented golfers from losing their balls. Another theory is that musket fire in war in those days was often shot over the heads of the men in front lines, so the shout warned those men to keep their heads down. “Beware before” could have been shortened over time to “fore!” As the game has evolved and technological improvements have produced equipment that bears no resemblance to the sticks and balls of golf’s early days, many of these golfing terms have shown staying power. And so does the sport; it is highly unlikely that golf-lovers would allow anyone to ban it in favor of archery these days.
