Known for its incredibly smooth TifEagle greens, manicured fairways and challenging pin positions, Amelia River is one of the most prestigious courses in all of North Florida. Sculpted around a forest of live Oaks, Sabal Palms, Pines and Wax Myrtles, this Tom Jackson designed track plays to 6,808 yards from the back tees, Amelia River Golf Club offers a challenge to all skill levels. Whether a true beginner or a single digit handicapper, our par 72 course is a challenge golfers of all skill levels. Amelia River consists of 18 holes of challenging golf where ball control and accuracy are keys to a great game. The first hole at Amelia River is located along the border of the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport, as are #5, and #13. These fairways are wide and open, giving the golfer a sense of a traditional Scottish links course. Enjoy these holes while you can because the rest of the course contains individual and groups of trees that, while adding beauty, require cautious ball placement. Amelia Island Jr. Challenge
