About Sea Island Golf Club
The Host Venue for The RSM Classic is Sea Island. The tournament is played on the Seaside and Plantation courses at Sea Island Golf Club, situated on the southern tip of St. Simons Island. The courses flank either side of The Lodge at Sea Island, which recently debuted a state-of-the-art 17,000-square-foot Golf Performance Center, oceanfront cottages, pool, and pool house
Seaside is the pinnacle of links golf. This oceanside course places a premium on careful shot selection, recovery, and putting.
Originally designed in 1929 by famed architects Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison, the Seaside Course was updated in 1999 by Tom Fazio – earning it a prominent place on Golf Digest’s list of “Top 100 Courses in the United States.” Tidal creeks, dunes, salt marshes and the St. Simons Sound frame the course, which plays fast, firm, and fun in the tradition of legendary Scottish links.
A vision. A labor of love. An on-going conversation between brothers about the course they grew up playing more times than they can count. Inspired by the traditional profile of Walter Travis’ 1928 original nine-hole course, our beloved Plantation Course was completely redesigned by Davis and Mark Love of Love Golf Design in 2019. The result? A course you’ll want to play again and again.
A historic course for a historic resort, Plantation is a classic design that brings back some traditional features and character: bulkheads, railroad ties, the Principal’s Nose on #10 green, a punch bowl green on #13. And a few of Travis’ chocolate drops here and there. Fewer bunkers, a more open feel. Strategically interesting, with a challenging finishing hole. But since this is a course that keeps playability top of mind for all levels, there’s always a way.
