Seaside Course

The historic ocean-side links course that combines its beautiful natural setting to make a golf course that is both challenging and fun. The beautifully manicured fairways and greens are bordered by sweeping dunes mixed with native grasses, wildflowers, and bunkers. And the wind creates a different golf experience daily. Sea Island’s most dramatic layout, Seaside is routinely ranked among the top 100 courses in the United States.

Plantation Course

Inspired by the traditional profile of Walter Travis’ 1928 original nine-hole course and reflecting Rees Jones’ 1998 update, Plantation Course has reopened after a masterful redesign by Davis and Mark Love of Love Golf Design. The brothers have reintroduced some of Plantation’s historical elements, bringing into play some of the ideas they have had since they were youngsters, when they grew up playing the course with their dad. Now it’s your turn.

Retreat Course

Sea Island Touring Professional Davis Love III and his brother Mark redesigned Retreat in 2001. Carefully blending players’ preferences (including their own) from the earlier design, as well as devoting a lot of close personal attention, the brothers created an original design that while dramatic is very playable and interesting. The Love brothers added 300 yards of length to give Retreat an open feeling with a lower profile. The course is defined by pine trees and bunkers but allows players to swing freely for the target. Davis Love III changed the way the course plays so that everyone might enjoy the game as much as he does.
