Discover Charleston Kiawah 2013 : Page 47

Greetings Dear Visitor, If you woke up in Charleston this morning, you’re fortunate indeed. The rich life of the Lowcountry comes from the natural beauty of seashore and saltwater, sweetgrass, pluff mud, dunes, riverfront estuaries and wildlife. But it doesn’t stop there. Charleston’s rich architectural history is apparent in the peninsula’s shops and restaurants, residential neighborhoods and parks, as well as the plantations, forts and small towns that surround us. There’s always something going on in Charleston. Festivals are celebrated year ‘round, from the Oyster Festival in January to the Holiday Parade of Boats in December and every month in between. Arts and culture are featured in monthly art walks and 2nd Sunday on King Street; galleries and local theaters have openings almost every day and no other city can rival our internationally renowned Spoleto Festival USA of the performing arts. Food is at the center of Charleston life. Many of our restaurants are owned by skilled, imaginative chefs and restaurateurs that utilize ingredients found within a few miles and prepare them in the Lowcountry tradition. The bounty of the ocean, fertile farmlands, cultivated crops — like rice, tea and mushrooms — and strong local economy keep us winning national culinary awards and recognition. Great weather, so many options for culture and entertainment, food, beauty and quality of life… and you. See what I mean about good fortune? Sincerely, Dear Visitor, Thank you for making Kiawah Island Golf Resort your vacation destination. I’m very pleased to share with you the 17th issue of Connoisseur magazine and the stories about our great island. There was no doubt about it — Rory McIlroy came to play. The 94th PGA Championship on The Ocean Course was billed as the world’s greatest players taking on America’s Toughest Course. And even though it was set up as the longest major in history (averaging between 7,668 to 7,451 yards), Rory lapped the field, finishing at 13-under-par, a full eight shots better than his nearest competitor. There are a few new faces here at the resort. The Sanctuary’s new executive chef will bring flavors from Down Under to the Lowcountry. Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, Chef Brendan Bashford has introduced “Mod Oz” cuisine to the island. Plus, new spa director Jerilyn Kuthe has introduced treatments for golfers to help both pre-and post-round stresses. She has also introduced new natural face and body lift treatments. Last summer, we unveiled two new mini-water parks to huge acclaim, one in the Night Heron Park and another in West Beach near the West Beach Tennis Center. Needless to say, kids of all ages (including some of the PGA Tour players here for the championship) enjoyed the slides and numerous water features. We are very pleased with the turnout and feedback we’ve received from two of our big special events at the resort. Earl Klugh’s Weekend of Jazz played to sold-out audiences and the chefs at Gourmet & Grapes dazzled the crowds at the annual fundraiser for the Medical University of South Carolina’s Hollings Cancer Center. Whether you’ve visited Kiawah before or this is your first time on our barrier island, I encourage you to use our island as a backdrop for an incomparable vacation experience. I sincerely hope that you discover the many joys of our island and choose to make a visit to Kiawah a tradition for many years to come. Susan Lucas Local Editor, Discover Charleston Roger M.
