Typically, Ombres work best for brunettes, but the style can is suitable for blondes too. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, there must be a smooth transition between colors.

A prominent coastal retail center in the Charleston area is now under new ownership for the third time in its 17-year history.
Columbia-based Edens, a national retail real estate owner, operator and developer, announced June 15 it has acquired Freshfields Village between Kiawah and Seabrook islands at the south end of Betsy Kerrison Parkway.
The new owner did not disclose the financial terms, and the deed was not immediately available at the Charleston County Register of Deeds Office.
The 191,850-square-foot shopping center, anchored by Harris Teeter supermarket, last changed hands for $59.8 million in 2013, when Northwood Investors of New York City acquired the roughly 15-acre property from Kiawah Partners.
“We are honored and excited to become the stewards of Freshfields Village,” said Edens’ CEO Jodie W. McLean. “Through its thoughtful curation of programming and public space activation, this iconic property has earned its reputation as a place where lasting memories and connections are made — an ethos that very much aligns with our mission to enrich community.”
She called Freshfields a “pillar of the Lowcountry” and noted her bullishness about the shopping center business.
“I’ve never been more optimistic about brick-and-mortar retail than I am today,” McLean said. “I think we will still have some rightsizing of retail in this country, but our foot traffic is way up since pre-Covid numbers. ... Stores that are embedded in neighborhoods that are designed where people come together are in high demand. We think Freshfields fits that model to a tee.”
The shopping center, with 99 percent occupancy, is home to more than 70 retailers, restaurants and service-oriented businesses. It also is the site of more than 80 public events throughout the year.
The merchant mix at Freshfields includes national, regional and Lowcountry businesses such as Lululemon, Faherty, Bluemercury, Johnny Was, Vineyard Vines, Las Olas, GDC Home and The Co-Op. Several big banks also operate branches at the property.
Edens was founded in the Palmetto State capital in 1966 and now has a portfolio of 110 properties through the U.S. in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
Almost all of the company’s retail centers are open-air shopping destinations.
In South Carolina, Edens’ holdings include Trenholm Plaza, Crosshill Shopping Center and Columbiana Station, all in Columbia.

Welcome to the Golfweek’s Best 2022 list of the Top 200 Modern Courses built in or after 1960 in the United States.
Each year we publish many lists, with this Top 200 Modern Courses list among the premium offerings. Also extremely popular and significant are the lists for Top 200 Classic Courses, the Best Courses You Can Play State by State and Best Private Courses State by State.
The hundreds of members of our course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 criteria on a points basis of 1 through 10. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings are averaged to produce these rankings. The top handful of courses in the world have an average rating of above 9, while many excellent layouts fall into the high-6 to the 8 range.
To ensure these lists are up-to-date, Golfweek’s Best in recent years has altered how the individual ratings are compiled into the rankings. Only ratings from rounds played in the past 10 years are included in the compilations. This helps ensure that any course in the rankings still measures up.
Courses also must have a minimum of 25 votes to qualify for the Top 200 Modern or the Top 200 Classic. Other Golfweek’s Best lists, such as Best Courses You Can Play or Best Private, do not require as many votes. This makes it possible that a course can show up on other lists but not on the premium Top 200 lists.
Each course is listed with its average rating next to the name, the location, the year it opened and the designers. The list also notes in parenthesis next to the name of each course where that course ranked in 2021. Also included with many courses are links to recent stories about that layout.
After the designers are several designations that note what type of facility it is:
• p: private • d: daily fee • r: resort course • t: tour course • u: university • m: municipal • re: real estate • c: casino
* Indicates new to or returning to this list.
Editor’s note: The 2022 Golfweek’s Best Classic Courses list for the top 200 layouts built before 1960 in the U.S. was posted Wednesday, May 25. The Best Courses You Can Play lists and the Best Private Courses lists will follow over the next two weeks.

Owning a piece of sweet Southern pie is sweet. Especially if you put in the money to make it sweeter. Following last year’s sale of Palmetto Bluff, the Lowcountry vacation destination in the heart of South Carolina is upping its game under the new ownership.
The charming community is rolling out even more luxury experiences, private home real estate offerings and new amenities. Already known for its picturesque setting and Southern hospitality, Palmetto Bluff has long stood out as a top luxury retreat land.
In addition to dreamy vacation homes with screened-in porches and rocking chairs, there are extensive nature trails, two vibrant village centers complete with river access, boat storage, a canoe club, a topnotch food and beverage program, the Forbes’ Five Star rated Montage Palmetto Bluff resort and a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.
The popular resort gained even more buzz after Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin held their wedding there with a grand property takeover complete with hundreds of high-profile celebrity guests.
Last summer, South Street Partners (also the brains behind South Carolina’s Kiawah Island) along with Henderson Park Capital Partners took ownership of the 20,000-acre property surrounded by 32 miles of riverfront.
The development duo has kicked off a rollout of updates and additions that will be exclusive to homeowners of Palmetto Bluff, including new food and beverage offerings, activity options and new luxury homes with access to a large waterfront and the Southern Intracoastal Waterway.
In addition to the new homes, which range from quaint village cottages to spacious open lots overlooking the river, a new enclave of available homesites dubbed Moreland Forest debuted in November 2021. The response was more than impressive. An unprecedented 13 homesites were bought for $12.8M on the first day of pre-release sales.
Strategically designed to include homesites that overlook preserved areas of Palmetto Bluff and built around wildlife corridors, this new collection of homesites is all about being immersed in nature. They are located along the inland water trail and lagoons.
To refresh the dining experiences, South Street tapped Australian chef Rhy Waddington to be the new culinary director of the Palmetto Bluff Club. Waddington gained food fame in his previous role at Winged Foot Club and has been invited to cook for the James Beard House. Known for his devotion to the freshest ingredients from local sources, Waddington plans to enhance Palmetto Bluff’s food by relying on the natural bounty of the vast property’s nature land and the surrounding country.
The expansion of Palmetto Bluff Farm is underway, geared around lifting the farm to table food experience to a whole new level. New facilities will include a reimagined greenhouse structure with its own showcase kitchen. Palmetto Bluff homeowners can even get fresh produce delivered to their doorsteps.
The first major development from the South Street shift happened this month with the the $4.5 million renovation of the River House, a steakhouse in a classically cool dining space overlooking the May River that is surrounded by the sweeping oak trees Palmetto Bluff is so known for.
The pandemic only drove home the benefits of Palmetto Bluff’s spacious scenery and nature surroundings even more for many. There was a record-breaking spike in home sales. Now, South Street has ambitious plans to bring even more magic to his one of a kind Southern getaway.
Palmetto Bluff now boasts at least 800 homes, with about 400 more under construction. The ownership change hasn’t come without controversy with a group of homeowners filing a lawsuit over dues and other complaints, including the developers’ allegedly trying to curtail short-term rentals.
This Southern retreat is certainly changing as it looks to the future of a special piece of South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Kiawah Island. Three of the most famous places to play golf in the United States, and the only three "19th holes" better than the magnificence at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club.
Golfweek, part of the USA TODAY Network, on Friday continued its annual "best of" series with the top 10 19th holes in America, and "The patio and Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs" in Arcadia came in tied for fourth.
Also fourth was "McKee’s Pub and firepit at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort" at the acclaimed golf destination in Bandon, Oregon.
Arcadia Bluffs, whose Bluffs Course again was named the top public-access golf course in Michigan by Golfweek and No. 26 in the country, was founded in 1999 and is about 250 miles northwest of Detroit. It also boasts the acclaimed geometrical South Course one mile down the road, which opened for play in 2018 and ranks sixth in the state and No. 94 among publics in the U.S.
The famed Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs allow visitors to sit on the lawn overlooking the 18th green, offering unlimited views of 3,100 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline.
Servers take drink and dessert orders from the lawn, so all you have to do is sit back, sip and enjoy the sprawling beauty before you.
"Wonderful post-round atmosphere," rater Chris in Canton wrote the Free Press.
At the stately, tasteful lodge and clubhouse — which is open everyday from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. — numerous seating options on patios or indoors also offer comfort and spectacular views of the course and lake. And yes, the food matches the scenery.
More than 400 votes were cast from 800-plus "Golfweek’s Best" raters to determine the top 10 golf course bars and restaurants, which above all else, was based on vibes. Views, food, drink menu and service were all a part of the conversation. But Golfweek wanted to find the best places to relax and hang out after a round.
"Enjoy a sip, the conversation, the golf and the heritage," Golfweek wrote. "It can be difficult to describe what makes one space a better hangout than others, but you know it when you see it. And then you never want to leave."
Forest Dunes in Roscommon also received a plethora of votes, but did not crack the top 10.
The ranking includes seven public-access courses and three private clubs.
1. The Tap Room at Pebble Beach Resort in Pebble Beach, California.
2. The Deuce at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
3. The Ryder Cup Bar at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
T4. The patio and Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs in Arcadia.
T4. McKee’s Pub and firepit at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon.
T6. The first-tee patio at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
T6. The porch at Secession Golf Club in Beaufort, South Carolina.
T6. Sticks at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, California.
T6. The patio and Heckle Deck at Sweetens Cove in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.

On Saturday, May 21, volunteers gathered at Mingo Point to conduct a litter sweep on Kiawah Island. This sweep was the fifth in a new effort by the Kiawah Conservancy to help maintain clean and safe habitats for wildlife in and around Kiawah. The Conservancy’s litter sweeps are held on the third Saturday of every month from 9-11 a.m.
They target high traffic areas like the Kiawah Island Parkway, Beachwalker Park, The Sanctuary, and The Sandcastle. The volunteers were split into four small groups and focused their efforts on the Kiawah Island Parkway between Mingo Point and Freshfields Village. The group of seven collected 1,101 pieces of litter. Since the litter sweeps’ inception in January, volunteers have collected and logged more than 6,800 pieces of litter.
The most abundant litter items are cigarette butts with 323 collected and 2,071 collected over all five sweeps. The high quantity of litter speaks to a larger littering problem than the Conservancy was anticipating. The South Carolina Aquarium is the Conservancy’s partner in this ecosystem clean up effort. Aquarium representatives have helped run each sweep and provided bags, extended grabbers, and visibility vests for volunteers working close to the roads. The Aquarium also helps run litter sweeps in other areas around Charleston such as Folly Beach and the Isle of Palms. At each location, the different types of litter are logged and uploaded to the South Carolina Aquarium’s Citizen Science App (and recorded on anecdata. com) to inform data driven solutions to large-scale pollution. The Kiawah Conservancy is fortunate to have the South Carolina Aquarium as our partner in this effort.
The partnership allows us to keep Kiawah clean and support research efforts at the same time. However, the significance of the partnership can still be enhanced by increased volunteer activity. Over the past five litter sweeps, there has been an average of seven volunteers. These small volunteer groups have proven tenacious and efficient, but they are still limited to certain areas due to their overall low numbers. With more volunteers, the Conservancy and Aquarium would be far more successful in improving the quality of the ecosystems in and around Kiawah Island.
Therefore, the Kiawah Conservancy urges people to come out to the next litter sweep on June 18 and help keep Kiawah clean. The sweep will begin at 9 a.m. at Mingo Point and participants will be eligible for a raffle prize when the sweep ends.
