Host Club Information

The dedication to golf at Sea Island Golf Club began in 1928, with the development of four 9-hole courses. In 1998, the resort began a significant golf redesign, resulting in the 18-hole Plantation Course by Rees Jones, followed by the 18-hole Seaside Course by Tom Fazio in 1999, and finally the 18-hole Retreat Course in 2001 by Davis and Mark Love. Davis and Mark redesigned the Plantation Course in 2019, the same year that the resort opened the all-new, 17,000 square-foot Golf Performance Center, with the latest cutting-edge technology, exceptional facilities and instruction, and the 18-hole Speedway Putting Course.

Since 2001, the Jones Cup Invitational has been played at Ocean Forest Golf Club on Sea Island, an annual amateur tournament that brings together the finest amateurs from the U.S. and abroad. In addition, the Sea Island Golf Club now hosts the Sea Island Women's Amateur, the Jones Cup Junior and Senior Invitationals. 

Over the years, the Sea Island Golf Club has hosted multiple GSGA Championships, including the Georgia Amateur Championship (1931, 1939, 1989, 1998, 2015), Georgia Women's Amateur Championship (1931), Georgia Mid-Amateur Championship (1993), Georgia Senior Four-Ball Championship (1994), Georgia Super Senior Four-Ball Championship (2018), Georgia Top 60 Women's Classic (2003), Georgia Junior Championship (2009), Georgia Mixed Team Championship (2021), Georgia-South Carolina Girls' Junior Challenge Match (2008, 2020) and the Georgia-South Carolina Junior Challenge Match (2004).

The club has hosted the Southeastern Conference Championship each year since 2001, and since 2010 has welcomed the world's best at the RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR FedEx Cup event.
