Letter to the Editor: Vineyard Golf Course is Number 1

Dear Editor

I, Bobby Gooden, am a member of the Southeastern Fellowship Golf Association which has members from several counties. We play different courses from the Fayetteville area to the beaches, also Florence and Cheraw counties in South Carolina.

I will never forget what used to be Carolina Sands looked like, three years ago. There was nothing but bushes and dog fennels. It was like the land had been left untended for years.

Mr. Bill Augustine saw an investment and purchased the course. He spent a lot of money by having all of the greens redone and sand traps filled with soft sand and installed a complete new irrigation system. He also remodeled the Pro Shop and made it first class. The landscaping along with the planting of blueberry plants makes the course very beautiful.

Bill also hired who I believe to be the best superintendent and greens master available, Bobby Davis. The Pro Shop is run by Junior Nance and Pam Taylor, who are very efficient and courteous.

This is why I consider Vineyard Golf Course the best golf course in this area, bar none.

I am a Senior Salesman for Lumberton Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac in Lumberton and our dealership is proud to support Vineyard Golf Course.


An Old Golfer,


Bobby Gooden
