The RSM Classic

RSM and the game of golf share certain core values, notably excellence, integrity, respect, teamwork and stewardship. Giving back to the community has been a part of the firm's history since its inception in 1926; it's also an integral part of golf.

The RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR tournament hosted by the Davis Love Foundation, is played on two of Sea Island Golf Club's stunning courses. Beneficial charities include Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Georgia, and other local and national charitable organizations. Team RSM members participate in the RSM Classic and related activities each year.
