Around Town

Colleton River Plantation Club’s Pete Dye Course will be hosting this year’s 2015 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, where unknown young men could become golf icons in a few short years. The same tournament that Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth played and won multiple times is returning to South Carolina.

It has been 36 years since the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship has been hosted in South Carolina. The last time the tournament was held in South Carolina was in 1979 at Moss Creek Golf Club on Hilton Head Island; before that, the tournament’s was last held in South Carolina in 1963, when it was held at the Florence Country Club. Each club that is chosen takes pride in knowing that the best junior golfers will take on their challenging course.

Founded in 1956, this year marks the 60th anniversary of the Beaufort Water Festival, which celebrates good, old-fashioned Southern summer traditions. The 10-day festival starts on July 17 and ends on July 26, with most events held at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.

More than 100,000 people attend the festival each year and enjoy the beautiful town of Beaufort, spend time watching the air and water shows, and participate in the expos, balls, concerts, and sport tournaments. The festival has something for every age, which makes it a great way to spend time with your family in the sun.

USA Syncope Trust and Reflex anoxic Seizures (STARS) says early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using an Automated External defibrillator (AED) can make a dramatic difference to survival after a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) — bringing the chance of survival from just 5 percent (no intervention) to 50 percent (with CPR and AED).

The charity is raising awareness leading up to Atrial Fibrillation Month, which is in September.

One island. One community.

On the most superficial levels, Central Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church and Grace Community Church are very different churches. Central Oak Grove, a low-slung brick building on Mathews Drive with a traditionally black congregation and an old-time religion vibe, and Grace Community, with its sprawling facility off of Spanish Wells Road, show how the message of the church can be translated into so many unique languages.

Hilton Head Island’s long history holds endless fascination, whether you’re a curious visitor or a long-time local for whom the ancient ruins and historic sites are just another part of the day-to-day beauty of the island.

Discover who’s buried around the landmark on the corner of William Hilton Parkway and Mathews Drive, in the Zion Cemetery and Banyard Mausoleum, or explore historic Fort Mitchel in Hilton Head Plantation — the many reminders that Hilton Head predates the golf course era are all around us, and visitors and locals are hungry to learn more.

Also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, Juneteenth commemorates the issuance and first reading of General Order Number 3 by Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865. The holiday celebrates African-Americans’ freedom and achievements and encourages respect for all cultures.
