Little Bits of Royal Chatter

Just in case you haven’t heard, we have some great news for Royal Pines residents:  Lady’s Island Country Club is planning to undergo extensive renovations scheduled to begin in late June of this summer!

According to Jeff Fischer, the owner, the clubhouse will be totally “skinned” and the only thing that will remain the same is the center fireplace.  The kitchen will be completely remodeled and updated, and the chic new design in the bar and dining room will hopefully attract young, new members. Outdoor dining will be added where the pool is currently located and all furnishings will be replaced with a Lowcountry design.

The golf course and pro shop will remain open during the renovations. The pro shop will also double as the snack shop and serve sandwiches and drinks while the restaurant is being renovated. The pool is being moved to a new location possibly near the existing putting green, plans are to close it for the summer.

Renovations are expected to be completed by Christmas of 2013.  With new and updated facilities, the club hopes to schedule more events like weddings and business meetings.  They plan to have free WiFi, a coffee station, and other amenities to attract such events and new members.

Gary Stoeffler, of Pickens Street, and a member of “The Remnants”, will be playing at Back Porch Grill, Landing Drive, Port Royal on June 7 and July 5 from 7:30 until 10:30 p.m.

Betty Fulcher, of Rivers Court, who was the subject of my article recently, has taken a fall and will be at BMH for rehab for a few weeks.  We wish Betty a full and speedy recovery so she can get back to her walker-dancing!

The Bunco Babes of Royal Pines are in need of substitutes for our group.  We play on the second Tuesday and the third Wednesday of each month.  If you are interested in subbing and a chance to meet neighbors please call me at 322-0472 or email at buddysoma@embarqmail.com.
