Coastal Island Resort Set on 27-Hole Golf Course
Sea Palms Resort's three signature golf courses feature emerald fairways dotted with glassy lagoons and fast greens on one of Georgia's Golden Isles. The George Cobb-designed main 18 holes wind through the resort; the express west 9 stretch across 2,945 yards filled with rustling oaks. The gorgeous scenery sets a tranquil tone at the resort.
Set along an oak-trimmed road, the resort's bungalow-like reception area greets travelers with rustic, woodsy decor and a staff brimming with Southern hospitality. Guest rooms are housed in a handful of buildings set back on 800 acres of marshland. Some deluxe units feature private decks or balconies and kitchenettes.
Back at the main building, Putters Club Dining Room, run by a Michelin-starred chef, serves hearty meals all day. Blue crab eggs benedict are included in Southern-style breakfasts, Georgia shrimp wraps satisfy midday hunger pangs, and local snapper with herb crushed potatoes is on the menu come evening.
Saint Simons Island, Georgia: Coastal Marshlands and Pristine Beaches
Saint Simons Island is the largest of Georgia's Golden Isles, located off the state's southeast coast. Lauded for its verdant marshes, maritime forest, and Mediterranean Revival mansions, the 18-square-mile hideaway was named 1 of America's 10 Best Islands by AOL Travel. Take to the elaborate network of scenic biking trails (accessible from the southern end of the resort village) for up-close views of coastal marshland along East Beach.
On the southernmost tip of the island, the Victorian St. Simons Lighthouse features exhibits relating to Coast Guard history and barrier-island ecosystems. The 100-foot tower was built in 1872 on the site of a lighthouse destroyed during the Civil War. It overlooks spectacular Atlantic Ocean scenery and trades nightly winks with Ursa Minor.
