The Heritage champion who declined winner's jacket

The Low Country Golf Hall of Fame has changed locations. Still in the Shoppes at Sea Pines, it's now next door to Legacy of Golf. During a tour of the new digs on Dec. 5, 2016, executive director Bob Collar explained that the man who won the second Heritage in 1970 (Arnold Palmer won the inaugural event) politely declined to take his winner's jacket home after his host, Bill Carson, told him he'd forgotten it. Bob Goalby's sartorial sensibilities at the time became the Hall's gain.

Harbour Town Golf Links brings in full-size replacements for trees lost during Hurricane Matthew

Sea Pines Resort tree consultant Gary Mullane describes the process, on Nov. 15, 2016, as a crew from Huntsman Tree Suppliers, of Lake City, Fla., places a 45-foot-tall, 10-ton live oak tree along the 10th fairway of Harbour Town Golf Links. The tree is one of 19 mature live oaks and loblolly pines being planted around the golf course to replace those lost in Hurricane Matthew. Mullane estimated that, in total, Harbour Town Golf Links -- which reopened for play on Nov. 9 -- lost nearly 300 trees to the storm.
