Great golf—and golf specials—meet spectacular oceanside settings at Georgia’s Golden Isles, home of the McGladrey Classic

Four beautiful barrier islands, midway between Savannah, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida, make up one of the most spectacular and acclaimed golf getaways on the East Coast.

Astonishing beauty, mild weather, and a natural radiance greeted Spanish explorers in search of gold four centuries ago and inspired the area’s name, the Golden Isles.

Individually, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, and Little St. Simons Island stand on their own as worthy and enchanting destinations. But taken together, they offer 198 holes on some of the country’s most widely acclaimed and legendary courses. Add in luxurious accommodations and the neighboring historic port city of Brunswick, and you’ve got as rich a golf vacation as you can imagine.

Avid golf fans already know the Golden Isles as home to the McGladrey Classic, to be held this year from October 15–21 at Sea Island Golf Club’s Seaside course on St. Simons Island. And also as home to Tour players Davis Love III, Zach Johnson, Jonathan Byrd, Matt Kuchar, Charles Howell III, Lucas Glover, and Chris Kirk.

Now you can discover its pristine beauty, genuine Southern hospitality, and award-winning golf courses at unbeatable prices. Here are just a few to whet your golf appetite:
