Check the yardage book: Sea Island’s Seaside Course for the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic

·4 min read

Sea Island’s Seaside Course, site of this week’s RSM Classic on the PGA Tour, originally was laid out by famed designers Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison in 1929 and was redesigned by Tom Fazio in 1999.

The event also will be played on the resort’s Plantation Course, which was renovated by Davis Love III in 2019. The first two rounds will be split between the courses, with the final two rounds after the cut being played on Seaside.

The Seaside ranks as the No. 1 public-access layout in Georgia on Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play list for 2021, while the Plantation is No. 13 on that list. The Seaside also is No. 84 on Golfweek’s Best list of all modern courses built in or after 1960 in the U.S., with the Fazio renovation moving the layout from the ranks of classic courses built before 1960.

The Seaside will play to 7,005 yards with a par of 70 for the RSM Classic, while the Plantation will play to 7,060 yards with a par of 72.

Thanks to yardage books provided by Puttview – the maker of detailed yardage books for more than 30,000 courses around the world – we can see exactly the challenges that players face this week on the Seaside Course. Check out the maps of each hole below.
