It’s a sport that takes a lot of time, and those who really get into it don’t mind spending all day, every day out on the links. The problem comes when the other member of the partnership feels abandoned and left out of the fun.
If you’re looking for a vacation spot where one person can golf and the other can find other things to enjoy, St Simons Island real estate has what you’re looking for.
St Simons Island is a bit of a golfer’s paradise, with two courses right on the island. The King and Prince Golf Course at the Hampton Club has won awards for its unique design, and The Sea Palms Golf and Tennis Resort offers 3, 9-hole options which offer great scenery and wildlife.
Hop across the bridge to Sea Island and you have the Sea Island Golf Club, home to the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic. Rated the fourth best course in the United States, you have the opportunity to tee off right where the pro’s do each year.
Three courses, The Seaside Course, the Plantation Course, and the Retreat Course, each offer unique challenges and advantages, and golf lovers will want to try them all.
But what will the non-golfer do while the other one is out on the greens? There are all kinds of options.
Explore the island on a bike, hike up to the top of the lighthouse, relax on the beach, or check out some of the historical features of the island. There are a variety of places to shop and dine, as well as treat yourself to a spa experience. In addition to St Simons Island, nearby Jekyll Island, and Sea Island provide their own unique attractions. And if you want to drive a little farther, there are a lot of day trip options too.
Golf widows don’t have to feel like they’re getting the short end of the stick when their mate wants to hit the links on vacation.
At St Simons Island there is plenty for non-golfers to do as well. For more information about real estate options on St Simons Island, contact DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty today.
