Sea Island - Seaside Course - St Simons Island, GA
The Seaside course at Sea Island was designed in 1929 by legendary architects Henry S Colt and Charles Alison. It was most recently updated in 1999 by Tom Fazio. Today, the par 6,883 par 70 layout plays host to the RSM Classic, an annual PGA Tour event. The course winds its way around tidal creeks, marshes, and sand dunes on the southern tip of Sea Island.
Our twosome teed it up on a fine Masters Sunday in 2016, with fierce winds fighting us all day long, we decided it would be best to stop keeping score on about the 6th hole. The shot of the day came when on 18 when I accidentally hit into the group in front of us. Like a courteous golfer, I hustled up to the green to offer an apology. To my surprise, I was greeted by arguably the nicest couple that anybody has ever had the pleasure of hitting into. I do not recommend this as a method of meeting new and interesting people but on this occasion, I was glad that I did. After tidying things on 18, we hustled off to the clubhouse to watch the conclusion of the 2016 Masters.
