This is a nice course, open to guests of Sea Island. For a period it was taken private, but I expect the bankruptcy of Sea Island Company and the overall economy opened it up to paying guests. It is somewhat expensive, but if you're staying at Sea Island, you expect to pay premium prices. Some of the homes on the course are not what you might expect for such a toney location, but by and large, it is a well maintained, well routed course with many challenging holes. The Davis Love Grill is a good option for a light lunch or post round libation.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
