At the Helm

anuska aprilDear reader... 

It is time once again for the Lowcountry to get its plaid on. 

We are excited for the return of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing golf tournament, which has been played annually at Harbour Town Golf Links since 1969. 

This year the tournament has made health a priority, with strict safety protocols in place. 

But unlike last year, a limited number of spectators will be able to enjoy the action. We can’t wait to see the sport’s best view for the prestigious crown — and we look forward to seeing the community reveling in one of the state’s prime events. 

Planning to watch the tournament? Don’t miss our RBC Heritage guide, which looks at the top players, offers a full schedule of events and details the ways the event is keeping fans and staff safe. 

Bluffton native Bryson Nimmer earned an invitation to the tournament. Read how he starred in high school, excelled at Clemson University and will fulfill a dream by competing at the RBC Heritage. 

Learn about Hilton Head-based SwingFit, which is embracing the science of the sport, and read about James and Calay Swift, a fun and exuberant husband-and-wife golf-pro duo. 

Make sure to check out our descriptions of the Lowcountry’s top golf course communities. 

Local women throughout the Lowcountry continue to impact the community. We shine a spotlight on their efforts with profiles in our Leading Ladies special section. And we learn how three sisters decided to take their passion for living off the land by operating their own certified organic farm. 

You’ll also find the best of colorful spring fashion from top local boutiques. 

Looking to take a day trip? Ridgeland is a small town in Jasper County, but the Morris Center for Lowcountry Heritage is one of the biggest promoters of preserving history. Read about its programs, cooking and arts-and-crafts classes and history lessons. 

If you are looking to relax and enjoy a good book, we offer suggestions from authors that you won’t want to put down. 

Thank you for making Monthly a part of your spring and for continuing to inspire us.
