Come to Georgia to master your bridge skills and to experience the fascinating nature and history of beautiful Jekyll Island. Each morning, learn from our bridge expert who provides practical instruction on leads, defense, signals and more for intermediate players. Spend your afternoons practicing what you’ve learned during round-robin play, and learn about Jekyll Island’s Gilded Age history and ecology on field trips. Then in the evenings, continue to refine your bridge skills in sessions of “no agenda” play, with the instructor on-hand to answer questions and give pointers.
