Pebble Beach of the East

By Linda Tancs

Sea Island is a resort along the southeast coast of Georgia sporting ocean-view villas, a football field-sized spa, and a seaside golf course.  Sounds like the perfect spot for a golf tournament.  The PGA folks think so, too; that’s why the resort’s course will host a new PGA Tour event called the McGladrey Classic.  Gates open tomorrow through 10 October.  Proceeds from the event benefit Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia and Safe Harbor.  Free parking is located at McKinnon Airport on St. Simons Island, where a shuttle to the course will be provided.  Need a place to stay?  The resort’s centerpiece, The Cloister Hotel, awaits you with five miles of private beach to keep you busy while the pros square off.
