This week’s post is from PGA TOUR Professional and Team RSM Member Davis Love III, 2016 Ryder Cup Captain, host of The RSM Classic and resident of Sea Island, GA, home of The RSM Classic.
2016 has been a whirlwind year, and it’s hard to believe but in just a few short days, we’ll once again welcome thousands of golf fans from around the world to Sea Island for the seventh annual RSM Classic (Nov. 14 – 20).
This year, we are particularly grateful to welcome visitors, following Hurricane Matthew last month. While a number of our neighbors sustained storm damage, the courses and properties involved with the tournament saw relatively minimal damage. The Golden Isles as a whole, however, has done a fantastic job clearing the damage, so our guests can expect to once again experience the natural beauty and top-notch customer service for which our island is so well-known.
This year’s tournament week includes a number of activities for both avid golfers as well as casual observers of the game. Just one of the highlights: a Saturday evening concert featuring Cole Swindell following opening act Matt Rogers. One of my favorite aspects of The RSM Classic each year, however, continues to be the charitable component. Since the tournament’s inception in 2010, we’ve raised $4.8 million for local and national charitable organizations focused on helping children and families succeed – a cause that’s aligned with the Davis Love Foundation, The RSM US Foundation and title sponsor RSM US LLP (“RSM”). I’d like to personally thank everyone who capitalizes on the tournament each year by giving back to the community. Together, we truly do make a difference in the lives of those in need.
It’s an exciting time for the island as we finalize preparations for this year’s event, which will highlight some of the game’s greatest players. We’re looking forward to showcasing The RSM Classic and Sea Island on the world’s stage during this annual seaside tradition, and to celebrating RSM’s 90th anniversary of helping middle market business leaders succeed.
Can’t wait to welcome everyone to the island next week!
