Plantation Course


Great views. Challenging play. Any level.

Parkland by the sea. The best parkland features with the windswept beauty of a links course.


Sea Island’s Plantation Course is Rees Jones’s masterful combination of two 9-hole courses, one originally designed by the great Walter Travis, and its story lays the foundation of our legendary golf history. It opened for play in 1928 with the plantation’s old corn and cotton barn converted to a clubhouse. Jones saved the old live oaks on Plantation, to remind people where they are. “When you see those trees, they tell you you’re in the South—they’re spectacular,” Jones said.

Plantation unfolds among a forest of ancient live oaks, cedar, and Georgia long-leaf pines. It boasts expansive fairways that give definition to the course and liberal sightlines between holes, enticing the accomplished and inviting the novice. But your favorite memory of Plantation may not have anything to do with golf. The bagpiper at sundown, an endearing Sea Island tradition, takes place on the 10th fairway, marking the closing of the courses. Along with the Seaside Course, it is the home of the PGA TOUR’s RSM Classic, a FedEx Cup event hosted by Sea Island touring professional Davis Love III.
