Shifting gears to The RSM Classic, the PGA TOUR event sponsored by RSM US LLP (“RSM”): Since The tournament’s concert event, sponsored by Southeast Georgia Health System began in 2011, it has showcased some of the most recognizable names in the music industry, including country music superstars Cole Swindell, Martina McBride, Darius Rucker, Toby Keith, and Gary Allan. While this year’s concert performer has not yet been announced, we’re sure it’ll be another incredible performer, and a special experience for golf enthusiasts and Sea Island locals.
