Making News


Earlier this week, The McGladrey Classic (which will be renamed The RSM Classic later this year) received some exciting news! We are honored to have been voted the "Best Special Event" by the readers of Elegant Island Living in the Best of 2015 Edition! Thank you to all who voted. #EILBestOf2015

The Classic is an incredible experience in and of itself, but when you add the location and southern hospitality – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create wonderful memories while watching some of the game’s finest players. We hope to see all of our returning guests and to welcome many new visitors to Sea Island for the tournament this November (16-22). Tickets are on sale now so get yours soon! You’ll receive a 20-percent discount off select McGladrey Classic tickets (excluding concert tickets; performer: TBA) when you purchase online.  

Are you on Facebook? If so, check out The McGladrey Classic’s page where we’re spotlighting volunteer positions available for this year’s tournament. This week, the volunteer spotlight is a laser operator. Volunteers on this committee will be asked to assist the PGA TOUR Shot Link staff with the compilation of player statistics. Each hole will have several volunteers to track player shots using lasers. To learn more: http://bit.ly/1IRBkNp.

Wondering what’s going on with some of our McGladrey Classic “family members” this week? Well, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is all the talk at the John Deere Classic, where many – including PGA TOUR’s Fantasy Golf – are favoring Zach to win. (#DidYouKnow Zach won the John Deere Classic in 2012?) Joining Zach in Illinois are past McGladrey Classic champions Heath Slocum (2010), Ben Crane (2011) and Robert Streb (2014). Both Ben and Robert had an early start, teeing off at 7:50 a.m. CT, from tees No. 1 and 10 respectfully; Heath wasn’t too far behind when he teed at 8:30 a.m. from tee No. 10; and from tee No. 1, Zach tees off at 12:50 p.m. Check out the Twitter picture Ben posted yesterday from the John Deer Classic Pro-Am, after making a hole-in-one at the third hole! We’re pulling for you all this week, guys!
