Seaside Course Sea Island, Ga. 2010-present
This week's Kodak Challenge hole
HOLE: The par-4, 408-yard 13th at Sea Island Golf Club
DESCRIPTION: Golfers need to take steady aim off the tee as this dog leg left has bunkers along the entire right side of the fairway and a marsh along the left. Depending on the wind, a driver will still leave golfers with a middle iron in to the green, which is protected by a front-side bunker. (Click here for Sea Island tour)

The PGA TOUR heads to Sea Island, Ga. for this year's McGladrey Classic at the Seaside Course. Learn more about this course:
