The RSM Classic is just around the corner! Since 2010, this tournament has been the most anticipated Golden Isles event of the season. Hosted by local pro golfer Davis Love III, this week is more than just a tournament, but is a celebration of culture, community, and exceptional hospitality.

Held during the peak of the fall season, the weather is ideal for a few rounds of golf. With cooler temperatures in the mornings, followed by warm afternoons, it truly is one of the best times of the year to enjoy the Golden Isles. Stroll under the centuries-old live oaks while watching your favorite TOUR players compete at the Sea Island Golf Club.

This annual PGA Tour event is played at Sea Island Golf Club

Where and When is the RSM Classic?

This year’s tournament will be November 15-21, 2021 at the Sea Island Golf Club. The courses played are beautifully placed and carefully designed. Sea Island’s Seaside course is bordered with sweeping dunes and ocean views that make it a golfer’s dream setting. The second course played on is the recently redesigned Plantation Course. Redesigned by brothers Mark and Davis Love, this course was completely transformed and is now better than ever. Both courses will feature tournament play during Thursday and Friday rounds. Following Friday’s cuts, Seaside will be the sole course for the remainder of the tournament.

Regular tournament play will begin Thursday and finish on Sunday with a Trophy Presentation on the 18th green immediately following completion of play.

Tickets can be found here.

Charitable Contributions

Besides regular tournament play, The RSM Classic, The Davis Love Foundation and the Golden Isles community have banded together to create events intended to raise funds for charitable causes.

Birdies Fore Love

The RSM Birdies Fore Love program is a giving platform tied to The RSM Classic, focused on supporting organizations that help build the middle market leaders of tomorrow. Through an employee giving challenge with title sponsor RSM and a PGA TOUR on-course competition during the tournament, the Birdies Fore Love program has raised over $22 million donated through 11 years of the tournament. 

The Youth Zone at the RSM Classic is the perfect kid-friendly event during this annual golf tournament.
