The Cloister At Sea Island is an eight-kilometer coastal vacation spot in Georgia. Sea Island is known for its golf course, which, after recent improvements, is now better than ever.
There are a total of 54 holes, including the 18-hole Planting Course, opened in 1998 and designed by Rees Jones.
The 18-hole Seaside Course was renovated by Tom Fazio and reopened again in 1999. You can learn to play golf on this course or just play and perfect your game. The Sea Island resort also offers a spa with several fitness facilities.
You can participate in special classes, as well as personalized fitness and wellness programs. Other activities around the resort include tennis, horseback riding, sunset cruises, boat trips, fishing, shooting school, canoeing, swimming, and even diving lessons.
Sea Island also offers a family destination, where children can choose from a variety of different vacation activities.
Children can play tennis in the afternoon for free and even attend complimentary golf and tennis clinics. During the summer, spring break, and even holidays, the resort is pleased to offer a program for children aged 3 to 11 years.
