The essayist Robert Lynd once said: “It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place this world is when one is playing golf.” Nowhere on earth is that more true than when playing golf on one of the beautiful golf courses of Sea Island and St Simons Island, GA. If you want a glimpse of what it is like to play golf in Paradise, then you must play golf on the Golden Isles of Georgia.
Golf has always been an important part of Sea Island life. In fact, Sea Island founder Howard Coffin opened the first golf course on Sea Island a full four months before he opened his now-famous resort, The Cloister. Guests had to stay on a floating hotel if they wished to play golf on this lovely island course.
And, of course, everyone desires to soak in the extraordinary beauty of the scenery while experiencing the meticulously designed and landscaped courses of Sea Island and St Simons Island. These award-winning courses have drawn many professional golf tournaments over the years, such as the RSM Classic, part of the PGA Tour. In 2001, the Ocean Forest Golf Club hosted the Walker Cup. And the professional players don’t just come for the tournaments or to perfect their swings – many golf pros also live in this beautiful and vibrant community.
