When Davis Love III’s father moved his family to St. Simons Island in 1969, he had no idea it would become a haven for PGA Tour professionals for decades to come. But this tiny island community – and neighboring Sea Island — is now home to approximately a dozen PGA Tour players, including Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson, Harris English, and Brian Harman.
A confluence of factors brings players here. First, there’s “Uncle Davis,” as many of the younger golfers call Love. Then there is Sea Island Golf Club, which features three 18-hole courses and the King and Prince Golf Course with another 18 holes. There’s also the mild weather and miles of unspoiled beaches. And there’s camaraderie among the players.
