The Second McGladrey Classic is Almost a Reality!




The PGA TOUR Fall Series is underway, which means that The McGladrey Classic is right around the corner, and course set-up is in high gear. We’re looking forward to returning to Sea Island Oct. 10 – 16, and are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will be as spectacular as it was during last year’s inaugural event.

In the meantime, the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas is this week. After Vegas, things move to the CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, California, for the Frys.com Open. From there, it’s back to the East Coast with The McGladrey Classic! (The Series will close out with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.)

If you’re planning to join us at Sea Island, you might want to check out what Scott McQuade, new president and CEO of the Golden Isles Convention and Visitors Bureau, has to say about his “Top 9 activities to experience in the Golden Isles” during tournament week for The McGladrey Classic. From shopping to paddle boarding to enjoying The Lodge’s famous “back-door lemonade,” Scott shares his favorites about the island.

Only 10 more days until The McGladrey Classic… Player commitments to date include Jonathan Byrd, Ricky Barnes, Angel Cabrera, Stewart Cink, David Duval, Jim Furyk, Lucas Glover, David Toms, Boo Weekley, Team McGladrey members Chris DiMarco, Zach Johnson and Davis Love III, Heath Slocum (winner of the inaugural McGladrey Classic) and many other PGA TOUR players. View the complete roster here.

Go here for a schedule of events.

Look forward to seeing you at Sea Island!
