Check the yardage book: Sea Island’s Seaside Course for the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic

Sea Island’s Seaside Course is one of the two courses in play for this week’s RSM Classic on the PGA Tour. The first two rounds also include the popular resort’s Plantation course – each player competes one round on each course – before all weekend play moves solely to the Seaside Course in St. Simons Island, Georgia.

The Seaside Course originally was laid out by famed designers Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison in 1929 and was redesigned by Tom Fazio in 1999. It will play to 7,005 yards with a par of 70 for the RSM Classic. The Plantation Course – renovated by tournament host Davis Love III and his brother, Mark, in 2019 – will play to 7,060 yards with a par of 72.

The Seaside Course ranks as the No. 1 public-access layout in Georgia and also is No. 83 on Golfweek’s Best list of modern courses since 1960 in the U.S. The Plantation Course is the No. 7 public-access track in Georgia.
