Those of a golfing persuasion have a real treat in store with the Lodge at the Sea Island Golf Club on St Simons Island, Georgia. The Lodge is a project by Rohl – our US distributor – and features some 40 rooms with bathrooms designed around an English Edwardian-era theme, complete with nickel Perrin & Rowe showers, basin and bath taps from the Traditional Collection.
Sea Island Golf Club was founded in 1929, and the Lodges styling borrows both from this period and from the times of golfing greats such as Ben Hogan and Walter Travis. An English country house theme is also very much in evidence with features such as huge fireplaces, chandeliers and sconces, tapestries, English ice buckets and crystal glasses. The numerous English antiques that were sourced and purchased by the Lodges design team (Cole Martinez Curtis & Associates in London) have further authenticated the Lodge. Naturally, it was very pleasing that this desire for the real thing extended as far as the specification of Perrin & Rowe brassware.
