I went to play here a couple of times, courtesy of my friend David T, one of America’s most prominent lawyers. I wore this outfit in 2016, and received a number of comments…
There are a couple of courses you can play here. Here’s a link to the golf, https://www.seaisland.com/golf/, and here’s some blurb recognizing one of the US greatest: At Sea Island, Davis Love III learned how to play golf from his father, practiced with his brother, and introduced the game to his son. His story could easily be the story of any Sea Island guest. Because where else can you get three championship 18-hole golf courses, top instructors, and an award-winning Golf Performance Center, with everything else there is to discover at Sea Island? From juniors just starting out to PGA champions—and everyone in between—there’s no better place for a golfer to learn and grow. Technologies and facilities that reach into the future, in a setting that honors traditions of the past.
Seaside is a fabulous course: Sea Island’s Seaside course is a Tom Fazio re-design of the 1929 classic by famous golf course architects Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison. Golf great Bobby Jones described it as among the best nine holes he ever played. By tying the original Seaside with the old Marshside course, Fazio, according to Davis Love III, transformed two nines from “18 holes that didn’t match into 18 matchless holes.”Seaside is an ocean-side links course that combines its beautiful natural setting with a golf course that is both challenging and fun. The beautifully manicured fairways and greens are bordered by sweeping dunes mixed with native grasses, wildflowers, and bunkers. And the wind creates a different golf experience daily. Sea Island’s most dramatic layout, Seaside is routinely ranked among the top 100 courses in the United States. Along with the Plantation Course, it is the home of the PGA TOUR’s RSM Classic, a FedEx cup event hosted by Sea Island touring professional Davis Love III.
Plantation is not too shabby either: Sea Island’s Plantation Course is Rees Jones’s masterful combination of two 9-hole courses, one originally designed by the great Walter Travis, and its story lays the foundation of our legendary golf history. It opened for play in 1928 with the plantation’s old corn and cotton barn converted to a clubhouse. Jones saved the old live oaks on Plantation, to remind people where they are. “When you see those trees, they tell you you’re in the South—they’re spectacular,” Jones said. Plantation unfolds among a forest of ancient live oaks, cedar, and Georgia long-leaf pines. It boasts expansive fairways that give definition to the course and liberal sightlines between holes, enticing the accomplished and inviting the novice. But your favorite memory of Plantation may not have anything to do with golf. The bagpiper at sundown, an endearing Sea Island tradition, takes place on the 10th fairway, marking the closing of the courses. Along with the Seaside Course, it is the home of the PGA TOUR’s RSM Classic, a FedEx Cup event hosted by Sea Island touring professional Davis Love III.
