At Sea Island, you can stay, practice, and play where the pros do
On your next golf vacation, how exciting would it be to step onto the practice green and find major championship winners Davis Love III, Lucas Glover, or Zach Johnson practicing 10-footers?
At Sea Island, located just off the Georgia coast between Savannah and Jacksonville, that’s not a stretch. Love and Johnson live here; Glover owns a home here. They are joined by fellow PGA TOUR pros Matt Kuchar, Jonathan Byrd, Chris Kirk, and many others who either live or train at Sea Island.
Of course there’s a reason so many top pros come to train at this Golden Isles sanctuary and decide to call this luxurious, award-winning coastal resort home.
Sea Island, with its legendary setting and beautiful year-round golf weather, makes not only a great home, but also a fantastic place to hone your game. The links are masterfully designed, and afford an appealing range of choices. Sea Island features three 18-hole courses in total: Tom Fazio’s Seaside course, home to the McGladrey Classic; Rees Jones’s Plantation course, featuring the inland beauty of marsh and forest; and the Retreat course, redesigned in 2001 by Davis Love III and his brother, Mark.
In addition to Sea Island’s three courses, the Sea Island Golf Learning Center is one of the best in the nation. Led by 2010 PGA Teacher of the Year, Todd Anderson, the Center boasts four of Golf Digest’s top 50 golf instructors on staff. The Center is proud to feature a multi-disciplinary team, including distinguished sports psychologist Dr. Morris Pickens, and renowned fitness trainer Randy Myers.
If you’re considering a visit to Sea Island, you’ll be pleased to know that the same programs offered to PGA Tour pros are available to Sea Island guests. Learning Center staff will even customize a game improvement program for you or your group to match the length of your stay.
PGA Tour Fall Series at Sea Island
Don’t overlook the opportunity to catch up with Love, Glover, Johnson, Kuchar, Byrd and the rest of a strong field at the McGladrey Classic at Sea Island, to be held October 10 - 16, 2011. All of those players have committed to the official PGA TOUR Fall Series event, which won rave reviews for the inaugural Classic last year. The tournament, hosted by Love, will be held on the resort’s Seaside Course.
For a week you’ll never forget, purchase a weekly tournament ticket, rent one of the resort’s beautiful Sea Island Cottages, and get your tickets to the Darius Rucker concert that will be held on the grounds of Sea Island Golf Club after the Pro-Am on October 12. The former Hootie and the Blowfish lead singer always puts on a great show.
