Oak Marsh is one of the truly classic Pete Dye-designed golf courses in the world. 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.
At par 72, this 6,500-yard 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. Walking is allowed after 4:00 p.m.
Oak Marsh played host to the PGA Section Championship and Society of Seniors Championship in the past. In addition, numerous resort tournaments are played here. Oak Marsh 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.”
Read what people are saying about the "new" Oak Marsh golf course:
“Wow, the course is in the best shape and is offering all the challenges you would expect from a Pete Dye design. Better be able to move the ball around, it takes every shot in your bag to score well.”
- Scott Burgess, Enterprise Holdings
“The renovated Oak Marsh golf course played great! I had a wonderful time playing the course!”
- Greg Clack, Brown & Brown of Florida, Inc.
“Although Ocean Links is beautiful and one of my favorite courses, some people may get lost in the scenery. With the renovation of Oak Marsh the new greens are very firm and the rough is very thick which makes for a nice challenge. The closure was well worth the wait!”
- Levi Welling, Omni Amelia Island Plantation
“Oak marsh is a challenging course presenting long fairways lined with thick rough, while the majority of greens are surrounded with sand traps, marsh land, and water. The renovations look great, making this course an amazing experience accompanied with breathtaking views of the marsh.”
- Caleb Peterson, Omni Amelia Island Plantation
