Hosted by Davis Love III, The McGladrey Classic is an official PGA TOUR golf tournament held on the Seaside golf course at Sea Island Golf Club on St. Simons Island, Georgia. The McGladrey Classic tournament will be entering its fourth year in 2013. The 2013 tournament will be held November 4-10. Just like the previous three events, the upcoming 2013 tournament promises to be a fantastic display for spectators and players alike as they experience the area's rich history, culture, and extraordinary hospitality. New to the tournament next year, the PGA TOUR has decided to count the fall series tournaments toward the FedEx Cup standings.
With the help of tournament host and chairman Davis Love III, his foundation and title sponsor McGladrey, the 2013 event is expected to draw top players from the Tour including the numerous players who live and train on St. Simons and Sea Island. "We're thrilled to be the host organization of The McGladrey Classic," said Mark Love, the tournament's Executive Director. "The economic benefit to Georgia's Golden Isles is significant. We look forward to continuing to provide a rich experience to all those playing, working and watching the tournament."
Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia, Tix 4 Kids charities and Birdies Fore Love charities will receive the proceeds from this event. In just two years, The McGladrey Classic has raised nearly $500,000 for charity.
