First Time Playing

Great Brother to the big course

Played here on my coastal Georgia golf trip in early December and the course was very pure. Played two of the courses at the resort and just unreal experience. The practice facilities where great for me to practice before and after my rounds and get used to the fast greens.

The clubhouse facilities where very respectable and the course itself was amazing hole six was the closest to the ocean but 8 was a good par 5 and I like 17. The course can get windy but bring your A game to this beast.

A great additional 18-holes at Sea Island!

The retreat course at Sea Island golf resort is the third course in the Davis Love III area and is geographically separate from the Plantation and Seaside courses. It has its own driving range/practice area/putting greens and it was an extremely impressive facility. The course itself is more inland with quite a bit of trees surrounding each hole but lots of fun to play. The layout is challenging and contains a variety of holes with water and trees being your biggest enemies here. The par-4's here stretch from as short as a drivable 290 yarder to a beastly 445 yard hole. For the most part, there is room to miss off the tee on a lot of holes but there are some strategically placed trees that block out approach shots, and being on the correct side of fairways the key to scoring well here. The greens are fast but roll true to the lay of the grain.

Some consider the Retreat course a step below the other 2 courses at Sea Island but I would respectfully disagree. Personally, the Retreat course was my second favorite of the 3 Sea Island courses, behind Seaside of course. You cant go wrong with Retreat, and you MUST add it to your list of courses to play when youre on St. Simons Island.

Must Play

With so much great golf on and around SSI, this course is easy to overlook. Don't. Great care is taken to maintain this gem of a country club. Always in fantastic shape. Very flat, perfect course to walk.
