|Some April traditions are unlike any other!!|
April 10 - 13 marks the return of Charleston Race Week - perhaps the largest regatta on the East Coast and always a top notch sailing event.
The Masters is the premiere event in men’s pro golf, and after the first major of the year is concluded at the hallowed grounds of Augusta National, the tour players converge on Hilton Head Island. The RBC Heritage golf tournament runs April 17 – 20 and is as much a social affair as it is a golf tournament. The boats at Harbour Town marina add a coastal flair to the Sea Pines golf course the finishes with Hole No. 18 along Caliboque Sound. The short game is important on this short and narrow golf course, so players with dramatic shot-making skills will always have a chance to slip on the plaid jacket.
The Edisto Island Open Land Trust (EIOLT) will hold their annual Spring Migratory Bird Watch, the same day the pro golfers and making birdies down at Hilton Head. EIOLT members will meet at 8 a.m. and join ornithologist Dr. Sid Gauthreaux and biologist Carol Belser to seek out neotropical migratory songbirds. With the daylight cycle lengthening it is a great time to kick the winter blues and get outside!
