Special Club Features

Ocean Forest Golf Club: The Ocean Forest golf course (ranked #84 in the world) is located on Sea Island, GA. Although Sea Island is a resort, the Ocean Forest course is private and you must play with a member. The course was designed by the Harvard-Yale educated Rees Jones and opened in 1995. It hosted the Walker Cup matches in 2001, the youngest course to do so. Although Rees has modified or renovated many U.S. Open courses, Ocean Forest is his only course ranked among the world’s top 100 courses.

Ocean Forest is a pretty private and most people are even unaware of its existence. To get into the Sea Island resort you have to go through a main gate, which you can do if you are staying at the resort or playing one of the resort courses. Once inside the Sea Island enclave, to get into Ocean Forest you have to go through a second gate, after driving several miles down to the tip of the island. The entrance only says ‘Private’ and there are no signs that say Ocean Forest. Indeed it is a very special place.

Club is open 6 days per week, 12 months per year.
