The year was 1457, the place: Scotland. A brand new game had been invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden'- and so, the word GOLF entered the English language. The first round of women's golf was played in the year 1811 in Musselburgh, Scotland.     Golf was banned three times for years after it was invented because the Scottish government believed it interfered with military training. The first golf balls were made of feathers wrapped in leather. They flew much further than the balls that came after and were used until the mid-1800s. After feathers, golf balls were made from wood.

 Sea Pines Founder Charles Fraser uncovered a ship manifest from1786 that noted that "golf sticks" and "featheries" had been shipped to residents in

It would be great to have an unlimited budget for a kitchen renovation. But the fact is most of us do not. And that’s OK. Compromises of one form or another are part of the process, even for the rare homeowner who enjoys a bottomless budget and expansive square footage. 


But how, exactly, do you decide between two compelling options with different pros and cons? The most critical tool to have on hand to help you make tough choices is a clear picture of your remodel goals.

How Will You Use Your Kitchen?

When I think of horses and equestrian facilities, I think Sea Pines, Oldfield but mainly Rose Hill. We had a wonderful opportunity as Realtors to attend an open house presenting their new clubhouse. It was not renovated but a brand new building. Gorgeous back porch and inviting entryway, spacious bar and rooms that can be separate for different meetings. The 18-hole is a public course with daily fees. No mandatory membership for Rose Hill property owners. Rose Hill has a POA of $2200 which may seem high for some BUT consider all the amenities: Tennis with clay and hard surface courts, pickle ball, Equestrian Center with 50 fenced acres including a polo field. Colleton Point Pavillon with breathtaking views of the Colleton River, fishing dock, kayak racks,

While you shouldn't panic if the house doesn't sell the moment you list it, you should begin to worry if the months start flying by without any real offers. If this is the case, here are 10 reasons why your house may not be selling.

  • You overvalued your property. If your house is overpriced, it's simply not going to sell. Compare your property to similar properties that recently sold within your area to get a better idea of its true value. An experienced real estate agent can give you an accurate value of
