The RSM Classic: A Truly Welcoming Event


We have a number of RSM Birdies Fore Love representatives onsite with us at the 2016 RSM Classic at Sea Island. These individuals were invited as a result of their leadership efforts to raise funds for children- and family-based charitable organizations aligned with the RSM Foundation’s on supporting organizations committed to providing a more stable environment for youth in the areas of hunger, housing and health, which will help them excel in education. Below is a summary from Courtney Hunt, a manager in RSM’s Boston office. Read what she has to say about her first visit to The RSM Classic.

When I first received the call that my husband and I were going to have the opportunity to attend this year’s RSM Classic, I was ecstatic to say the least! So as you can imagine, I had extremely high expectations upon arriving at Sea Island. I am pleased to say, that my experience here did not disappoint and without a doubt surpassed my expectations.

Upon arriving at the airport and traveling to Sea Island, the RSM brand was out there for everyone to see. The first afternoon was spent taking in all of the beauty and hospitality that Sea Island has to offer. On the evening of our arrival, we were able attend the opening reception, in the Spanish Lounge at The Cloister. During the evening, it was clear to see how giving back to our communities’ plays such an important role in making RSM such an extraordinary firm to be a part of. I was truly inspired when I heard the speeches from RSM US Managing Partner and CEO Joe Adams and Team RSM Member and professional golfer, Zach Johnson. It was without question a night to remember.

During my second day on Sea Island, I was able to experience clay target shooting. This was a first for me! Given the fact that I had never held a gun before, Jeff, our instructor, was extremely helpful and patient! It took me a few (well maybe more than a few) tries to hit the target, but once I got the hang of it, I didn’t want to stop! Shooting a 20-gauge shotgun was something I never thought I would do in my lifetime. It was a wonderful experience.

On Tuesday evening, my husband and I were fortunate enough to attend the Pro-Am Draft Party at the home of 2016 Team USA Ryder Cup Captain and Team RSM Member Davis Love III and his wife Robin. It was wonderful to see the impact that Robin and Davis continue to make on lives of so many families in need. They truly share RSM’s core value of stewardship.

I feel so fortunate to have attended the RSM Classic at Sea Island. Everyone was so welcoming and made this experience one to remember!
