Give your dad the experience of a lifetime for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and you might find yourself at a loss for what to get Dad. Moms can be easier — flowers, chocolate, a spa day. But a dad can be tricky, because there are very few things he really wants. There are things he needs — golf clubs, tools, golf balls, a kegerator, golf shoes, etc. — but he usually already has them.

ROTARY STUDENT EXCHANGE OFFERS ‘LIFE-CHANGING’ EXPERIENCES

Rotary International is hoping to foster peace and cultural understanding, one student at a time.

HILTON HEAD, OLDFIELD HONORED FOR GREEN PRACTICES

On March 15, the Town of Hilton Head Island, the Oldfield Community Association and the Seabrook Island Property Owners Association were recognized as the state’s first Audubon International-certified sustainable communities.

More than 9,000 people voted for their favorite in our annual Facebook-based contest. Ellis Calderon came out the winner. 

Perfectly situated between Hilton Head, Savannah and Charleston, you’ll find Dataw Island, one of South Carolina’s hidden gems. Off the beaten path and surrounded by nature, yet close to the beach, shopping, history, and fine and performing arts.

Dataw Island is a gated golf, tennis and boating community where members are very active in social and sporting activity, as well as in philanthropic ventures.

THE LOWCOUNTRY’S PRIVATE PENINSULA FOR WORLD-CLASS GOLF

Lowcountry casual elegance lies at the base of Hilton Head’s bridge at Colleton River Club. This 1,500- acre private community delivers on its promise of world-class golf, pristine natural surroundings; and a thriving, active and unique membership experience.

Coastal South Carolina and coastal Georgia are home to many of the country’s top 100 private residential golf communities, as rated by Links magazine. From Sea Pines to Savannah Harbor, the area is ripe with lush greens just waiting for hackers.

Two of the most iconic and most visited historic towns in the U.S., Savannah and Charleston, draw millions of tourists, and Hilton Head Island does pretty well, too. Many play golf while visiting, and some decide they want to retire to the Lowcountry. The mild climate, dramatic marsh vistas, live oaks, palm trees and the availability of vast tracts of affordable land all favored development of high-end residential communities centered around golf.

Spring in the Lowcountry means the RBC Heritage of golf, time at the beach and making memories with friends. Comfort and style are Lowcountry traditions during the most beautiful season of the year.
