Very lovely accommodations and the instructors really were wonderful. A shorter walk to the ocean would have been nice, but overall, I would recommend this trip to everyone.

The Golf instruction was outstanding, great job by Spencer and Kevin! Our coordinator Rod was great fun, and very knowledgable regarding Jekyll Island. Met some very interesting people, and really enjoyed learning about the ecology of the island, and all about sea turtles . I would highly recommend this program,
