One of the many reasons The Sea Island Golf Club was named the No. 1 destination for golf and meetings by Golf Digest and USA Today in 2008 is its serene oceanside scenery. Sea Island — home to two Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotels, The Cloister and The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club — sits on the southern edge of lovely St. Simons Island in Georgia. It overlooks the beautiful and vast Atlantic Ocean. As such, its three championship golf courses also feature spectacular ocean views. Those vistas, paired with lush oak and cedar trees and still lakes, allow golfers at The Sea Island Golf Club to feel peaceful and focused. Tidal creeks and salt marshes — both of which depend on the Atlantic to exist — give the courses character, creating a tranquil oasis nestled against the briny deep.
