There are a number of accommodation options, from a Ritz-Carlton to lakeside condos, plus access to five outstanding courses, including Great Waters by Jack Nicklaus, ranked among America's 100 Greatest Public Courses.
SEA ISLAND (GA.) RESORT
Choose from The Cloister, seemingly transported from Italy's Mediterranean coast, or The Lodge at Sea Island, with its 24-hour butler service. Both offer rounds at the Seaside, Plantation and Retreat courses.
