Ready to Get Your Plaid On?

I certainly hope everybody is ready to get your plaid on for the Heritage! Next week, some of the best golf in the world is going to be played at one of the prettiest places in the world. I’m talking about the RBC Heritage Classic presented by Boeing and hosted by Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head.

It’s hard to believe that the Heritage, one of only five invitational tournaments on the PGA Tour, has been around since 1969. Arnold Palmer won that one, playing with Jack Nicklaus on a course the Golden Bear helped design, held before Thanksgiving in those early years. The total prize money? $100,000.

Now the Heritage sports a purse approaching 6 million dollars and it’s played the week after the Masters – for many fans, the tournament of the year. Simply put, there isn’t a better time for golf in the Low Country. 100,000 fans will be here to share in the fun. The iconic course at Harbour Town will see the Golf Channel and CBS dedicating nearly 15 hours of coverage and the best part? Millions of dollars is raised for charities through the Heritage Classic Foundation.

Now, plenty of people will be coming just to see the golf greats of our time take that beautiful walk down 18 on Sunday and our visitors will have the chance to get up close and personal with these pros. Many of the players, along with their families, will stay right here in Sea Pines while the tournament is going on. I’m willing to bet that more than a few visitors will want to see that amazing view of the Harbour Town Lighthouse more often. I’m fortunate enough to make my home just minutes from the Lighthouse, and while traffic may be a little challenging – it is worth the extra time it takes because the beauty of Sea Pines and all of Hilton Head Island never fails to make me smile.

That is the best part about living here in this island paradise. Today, while some folks are still wondering when Spring will start, we are enjoying beautiful days with the temperature in the high 70s. It has been “beach” weather here for, well, months. One of my favorite things to do is to walk to the beach and get my toes in the sand every chance I get. Walking back home to watch the best sunset over the marshes here in the Low Country is a beautiful site, and I love it. The best way to stress relief anyone can prescribe.

So, when you are ready to rub elbows with the greats in the game, you know there is a place that can combine the best weather, the most beautiful beaches, and the most amazing golf courses in the country. Call me and I’ll tell you about Hilton Head, and you can call paradise home, just like me!
