SEA ISLAND, GA (September 9, 2013) – The Jones Cup Junior Invitational, an outgrowth of the annual Jones Cup Invitational, continues to boast one of junior golf’s strongest 78-player fields, hosting the nation’s top juniors.

In recent history, Sea Island hosted the 2001 Walker Cup, seven USGA Championships and eight Jones Cup Invitationals.
The Seaside Course displays a unique golf experience for amateurs and professionals alike, and plays host to the PGA TOUR’s FedXCup event, The McGladrey Classic, another growing tour stop that began in 2010. Seaside is the golf focal point at Sea Island Golf Club and the Golden Isles. Perched on the southern tip of St. Simons Island and set alongside the Atlantic Ocean, the Tom Fazio- designed links course meanders through tidal creeks and windswept fairways of the Georgia coast. Seaside offers breathtaking ocean views amidst the sweeping dunes and South Georgia salt marshes.
