Recently renovated, this beautiful Florida course, built in 1972, is noted for its tight fairways and small greens, meandering along serpentine salt marsh creeks and through the moss-draped heritage oaks for which Amelia Island is famous. This course has 14 holes with water hazards and numerous bulk-headed greens. A variety of bunkers are placed throughout the course to add to the challenge and a natural approach has been maintained as well with the use of coquina shell cart paths, native plant life and preserved habitats for the local wildlife. It has been included in Golf Digest's prestigious list of the “Top 75 Resort Courses in the U.S.” and selected by Travel & Leisure Golf as one of “Florida's 50 Finest Courses.”
