Known by many as the U.S. Capital for Golf, more than two dozen PGA pros train and live in the Golden Isles, including World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Davis Love III, Matt Kuchar, and Zach Johnson, just to name a few. Each fall, we cheer on our hometown heroes and welcome their competitors back to the area for the annual RSM Classic. In its seventh year, the RSM Classic is a PGA TOUR event played at Sea Island Golf Club.

With some of the world’s most elite golfers and plenty of evening activities to keep you entertained off the course, this year’s tournament promises to be another signature week-long event in the Golden Isles.

Jake Owen Live in the Golden Isles

One of the most anticipated events during the RSM Classic is the live concert Saturday evening following the tournament. This year’s concert headliner is American country music singer and songwriter Jake Owen, who has had six #1 singles to date – “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Beachin’,” “Anywhere with You,” “Alone with You,” “The One That Got Away,” and “American Country Love Song.” The concert will take place on Saturday, November 18 at McKinnon St. Simons Airport.
