Seaside: Home of the RSM Classic
This week, TruGolf is headed to Sea Island, Georgia, to visit one of its many PGA Tour stop courses. The Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort is home to the RSM Classic, and is a must-play for any serious golfer. Seaside is a links style course that features ocean views and complex greens. This challenging course rewards players who carefully select their shots and who have the ability to recover as they wind through the marsh and forest.
