COMMUNITY NEWS AND UPDATES
Garden Club Events at Callawassie
Callawassie Island, SC: Garden club shares techniques.
> Callawassie Island, SC looks toward its fall calendar of member events with a number of new initiatives, including detailed planting and tending guidance from its Garden Club leadership. For residents who have spent most of their lives in Northern climates, the emphasis on autumn planting in the Lowcountry takes some getting used to.
Recommendations from the Garden Club include October planting of snapdragons and dianthus, which will bloom all year long. Also in the region, fall is the best time to plant shrubs, ferns, and shade plants, as well as such perennials as cone flowers, coreopsis, asters and cenna.

Quail Ridge Co-Hosts Championship
Quail Ridge, FL: Hosts event on redesigned course.
> Quail Ridge Golf & Country Club, Boynton Beach FL recently co–hosted the 74th Florida Open Championship on its prestigious South Course, which was redesigned by architect Bobby Weed. The new South Course was in pristine condition for the event, which was won by J.C. Deacon with a 54-hole total of 206.
Central to the South Course redesign project was a reduction in irrigated, maintained turf, which was replaced with coquina-like screenings and pine straw. The striking visual contrast orients golfers on each tee as they contemplate the ribbons of emerald turf winding through the lighter screenings areas. Send me more information about Quail Ridge!
