SULLIVAN’S ISLAND Traveling to Sullivan’s Island is a sea island introduction to Lowcountry history. Beautiful homes that were built nearly a century ago blend seamlessly with new family residences. Narrow streets criss-cross the island while winding past historic sites such as Fort Moultrie, where pivotal battles were fought during both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Edgar Allen Poe penned his short story “The Gold Bug” while stationed at Ft. Moultrie. The Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse signals the entrance to Charleston Harbor, where pleasure boats and cargo ships glide into the channel from the Atlantic Ocean. After a day on the beach drop in at the local cantina for some tacos + tequila, or dine al fresco with the family on Middle Street. Sullivan’s Island promises that time spent here is time well remembered. 80

African-American Influence &

GULLAH CULTURE The story of Charleston can only be fully understood by exploring African and African-American influences on the area’s history, customs, and traditions. The contributions of the enslaved population extended to every facet of colonial and antebellum life, both urban and rural. Many scholars argue that most African-Americans can trace their roots to Charleston due to the high percentage of enslaved Africans who entered this country through the port of Charleston. For more than 300 years, the Lowcountry has been profoundly influenced by the linguistic, artistic and culinary contributions of Africans and AfricanAmericans. Charleston takes great pride in preserving and sharing this fascinating heritage and eagerly anticipates the opening of the International African American Museum in 2020. While in Charleston you’re bound to hear references to “Gullah.” It’s a lyrical word used to identify sea island descendants of enslaved central and west Africans, along with the Creole language and customs that have been passed down through the generations. 126

Not surprisingly, the sport of golf also has a rich and storied history in Charleston that dates back to the Colonial period. Records show 432 balls and 96 golf clubs being shipped from the Scottish port of Leith to Charleston in 1743. In 1786 the South Carolina Golf Club was established in what is now downtown Charleston. The game was played on Harleston Green, which (if it still existed) would be located between Calhoun and Beaufain streets. Charleston’s modern golf tradition began with the infamous 1991 Ryder Cup, better known as the “War by the Shore” that was played on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. In the ensuing years the Charleston area has hosted numerous international tournaments including the 2012 PGA Championship and the 2013 US Women’s Amateur. This tradition will grow even richer when the 2019 US Women’s Open is held at the Country Club of Charleston, and the PGA Championship returns to The Ocean Course in 2021! With 20+ challenging courses available for play it’s easy to make a little golf history of your own! If tennis is more your style, you’re in luck. Charleston has been named “Best Tennis Town” in the US, and the facilities found at Wild Dunes Resort, Kiawah Island Golf Resort, and Seabrook Island leave no doubt as to why. Equally impressive is the Family Circle Tennis Center on Daniel Island, home to the Volvo Car Open, the longest running professional women’s tennis tournament. Each April the Volvo Car Open features the best players in women’s tennis, and attracts over 90,000 fans during the 10 days of the tournament. Wild Dunes Links Course #16
