Sea Island Golf Club, Seaside Course – The Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club is a par-70 links-style track that plays fairly short at only 7,005 yards. The fairways are relatively wide but have numerous bunkers in play off the tee, and due to the shortened length, many players will be clubbing down off the tee. The greens here will be tricky to read this week and the wind may play a factor if it picks up. However, scores should get really low. Key stats that I will be focusing on are SG: Approach and Birdie or Better Percentage.
Keep in mind that a number of PGA Tour Pros live in the area and train here. For example, J.T. Poston is a member at Sea Island. Other names that live and train nearby are: Stewart Cink, Harris English, Brian Harman, Zach Johnson, Kevin Kisner, Patton Kizzire, Davis Love III, Trey Mullinax, Seamus Power, Hudson Swafford, and Nick Watney.
