Seaside Golf Course

Sea Island Seaside Course

The Seaside Golf Course, the highest-ranked championship course of the three at Sea Island, is considered a top 100 golf course in America by most golf publications and is a former host of the PGA Tour RSM Classic. 

Re-designed by Tom Fazio in 1999, Seaside is designed to be an oceanside links golf course. 

The golf course molds into the surrounding landscape and provides a fun and challenging 18 holes for more experienced golfers. Tom Fazio is renowned for this style of course design. A tee time here means a low handicapper can have tons of fun and be challenged. For the less experienced golfer, the course can get a little tricky if the wind is blowing. The tee for guests measures about 6600 yards, so the course is not long but is still very difficult with many green run offs and strategic bunkering.

The seaside course is stunning with immaculate fairways, smooth greens, soft bunkers, and picturesque landscapes. A few tips for playing Seaside for the first time would be to keep the ball in the fairway and miss in the correct spots.

Plantation Course

Sea Island Plantation Course

Sea Islands Plantation Course, one of 2 Sea Island courses used during the RSM Classic, has been redesigned by Davis Love III and his brother Mike and the course reopened in 2019. The Davis brothers grew up playing the golf course and did a great job putting their mark on the original design. The redesign pays homage to the original layout of the course designed by Walter Travis.

The Principal’s Nose bunker is now on #10 and it is one of the best short par 4’s in America. With water all along the left, bunkers in the middle of the fairway and right of the green make this drivable par 4 so interesting on the tee box giving the golfer multiple options. Plantation is the course at Sea Island people will want to play over and over. Not as challenging as Seaside, but every bit as beautiful and playable for golfers of all skill levels.

When playing the Plantation Course, it is crucial to keep your golf ball in play. There is plenty of water and out of bounds on the course, so if you don’t lose many balls on this seaside course you can shoot a good score here. 

Retreat Course

Sea Island Retreat Course

The Retreat Course was also redesigned by the Davis Love III and his brother in 2001. The Davis boys added about 300 yards of length to the golf course and made it more open and forgiving to allow low, mid, and high handicap golfers to enjoy a nice round on a great course.

The Retreat course at Sea Island Golf Club is the most playable golf course of the three at Sea Island and it is defined by pine trees along the fairways and strategic bunkering. The land at the Retreat is flatter with some water hazards and rewards good shot making without harshly punishing the mishits.

Much like the Plantation Course, first time golfers will need to keep the course in front of them at Retreat. Pine trees and water are aplenty, and they should be avoided. With the wide fairways and large greens, Retreat is a fun golf course to play. 

For those who want to get the most out of their tee time, in between playing golf you can head to Golf Performance Center to brush up on your skills. This consists of a state of the art driving range where you can use leading technology to improve your game.
