Cheers To 50 Years! Andrea Pion's First RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing
Flyovers. Catamaran rides. Playoff rounds to determine 2018's winner. By all standards, the 50th Annual RBC Heritage, Presented by Boeing was one for the books. Heritage week is always a special time of year for Hilton Head Island. Spectators from across the country arrive each year—dressed in their best plaid!—to cheer on their favorite players and enjoy Hilton Head Island.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of our favorite week of the year, we teamed up Andrea Pion, the founder of the popular lifestyle and fashion blog a slice o’ pi to get a first-timer’s lens on the Heritage experience. Read all about Andrea’s take on the plaid-filled week below.
Tell us about your first RBC Heritage experience! Were there any highlights or standouts?
I honestly didn't realize how big of a deal this was! I have always heard of it, but being there to see it first hand was such a cool experience! And being there for the 50th anniversary made it even more special. A highlight for me was taking the catamaran to Harbour Town to get to the tournament! That was such a fun way to make an entrance. And of course seeing the Boeing 787-10 circle around was so cool!!
How would you describe RBC Heritage to someone who isn't as familiar with the tournament, or isn't a huge golf fan?
There is so much going that you don't even realize there's a golf tournament happening! It is so much fun to walk around and see everyone come together on the island! So many tents, experiences, food and drink options, and of course watching the tournament—there is so much to do!
Do you have any tips or advice for first-time Heritage goers?
Stay hydrated, don't forget your sunscreen, and bring your plaid! It was a fashion field day for me! I loved seeing all the fun outfits! Saturday is plaid day, so if you go next year—don't forget it!! ;)
