Sea Island Golf Club Course Review
The Sea Island Golf Club is one of the best golfing resorts in the United States, being ranked number 4 out of no less than 75 Best Golf Resorts in the US, boasting its 3 exceptional eighteen hole-championship grade courses. To begin with, theres the Seaside course, which, as its name suggests, is a links golf course which sits on a magnificent piece of real estate next to the ocean, delighting its visitors by the majestic views offered by its seaside location. In the good-old tradition of St. Andrews, the Seaside course is the official host for the PGA Tours RSM Classic, together with the Plantation course, which is built through marsh and forest. Last but not least, theres the Retreat golf course, which offers a unique, challenging and dramatic design, being developed by Mark Love and Davis Love 3rd. Of the three, the Seaside can be described as the pinnacle of links-golf design, being an ocean-side course which rewards recovery, careful shot-selection and putting.
The Seaside is also Sea Island Golf Clubs most challenging layout and it hosted multiple PGA events since its inception, being designed originally in 1929 by Charles Alison and Harry S Colt and later re-designed in 1999 by the famous architect Tom Fazio, being regularly ranked high in Golf Digests Top 100 Courses in the US list. The Seaside plays fun, fast and firm, just like traditional Scottish link-courses from which it was inspired and its framed by dunes, tidal creeks and marshes. The Plantation was masterfully restored by Rees Jones and it unfolds majestically among an ancient forest of live cedar and oak, boasting its expansive fairways and its incredible views of the ocean. The Retreat was thoroughly renovated in 2000 and its greens are a complex mix of sand bunkers, slope and undulations, presenting golfers with a truly challenging experience and offering a variety of shots.
