William Deck shows off the conceptional master plan for Carolina Hills at Meadowbrook Golf Clubs new project. Two homes have already been built on the course.
One of the golfers who comes often to Meadowbrook Golf Club seems to describe the club best when he says “it’s one of the best in this part of the country, hands down! All the people here are just wonderful.”
This golf club is celebrating 50 years and has come a long way since 1963. At that time, Kenneth Deck told his brother, Carson that he thought that establishing a golf club on the family farm and pastures, “just wouldn’t work”. Finally, when Carson told his brother he’d buy him out because be believed it would work, Kenneth said “well, alright I’ll go in with you.”

Are you making memories of today?
I coach a lot of people who think of themselves as human doings, not human beings; folks whose spirits are dry, who’ve run out of energy and excitement. I coach them to listen to their lives and make a positive life, not just a living, and that yes, they can do that and no, their business is probably not going to help them do it. I coach them to make memories of today.
Here’s an example. I received an email from a friend recently who graduated from high school about 50 years ago. There was a young man from Finland, an exchange student, in her graduating class. The two of them had written and talked over the years, but not seen each other since graduation…
…until the previous month. She and her husband left their business in good hands and went to Finland to visit her classmate. They had a great time, enjoying being with him and seeing the gorgeous Baltic Sea and other Finnish wonders.
Life is way too short for you to sell your soul to the company store. Starting now, listen to your life and make a positive life, not just a living.

The government gives us statistics on the participation of hunting and fishing. The numbers that come from the federal government only include those sixteen and older while each state will refine the number down to every license sold. In 2006, those over sixteen years of age who fished or hunted (or both), totaled over 42 million. There is no doubt this group of men and women are important to our country and our economy. Those same statistics tell us this faction spent over 76 million dollars toward their outdoor activity.
