Lots of doglegs
None of the Jekyll Island courses have completely recovered from Irma damage, but the damage is most visible on this course. The layout is nothing outstanding, with a few interesting holes. Lot of doglegs and a fair amount of water on the course.
The only thing My son and I didn't like we look to be almost 2 holes ahead of the next group and twice we look back and out of no where it had someone behind us .
Terrific course, needs a haircut
Lovely course with plenty of nature. The grass just off the fairways was too long, struggled to find balls at times.
Played this course (Oleander) for the first time in 5 years. I usually play the other two JI courses because they are in better shape. Oleander had become tired and seemed to be the less manicured and cared for. It was a soggy mess even on days when it hadn't rained recently.
I was pleasantly surprised that the conditions were very good. Greens a bit worn but very playable. Layout is very challenging from the blue tees. Some long par 4s and 3s. Par 5s can be reachable. Good track and I hope they keep it maintained. Fun to play.
Jekyl, Oleander golf course
This a great layout the front nine is more difficult than the back, very few straight holes, always a dogleg. will play it again soon, the other Jeykl courses are good also, they seem to be taking care of them better.
Overall, Great Experience
Pace of play was perfect. Weather was perfect. Course was in the best shape I have seen it in a long time.
Pace of Play Was Unbearable
Although this was a nice enough course, I wouldn't return unless I was assured that they got a ranger on this part of the course. Oleander is adjacent to Pine Lakes and The Mounds, and I believe they might have rangers. We had such a slow foursome about 3 groups ahead of us that there were 3 empty holes by the time we reached hole #10. We gave up after 13 or 14 holes and went to the clubhouse in disgust.
The condition of this course is a shame
This is a Donald Ross design updated by Dick Wilson. I didn't realize until I started that I had played there before. The previous round, several years ago, was much more enjoyable. The starter didn't know or seem to care what pin position they were using that day. The fairways were extremely thin, with what appeared to be some sort of top-dressing that made good lies rare. The greens weren't too bad, where there was grass. It seemed to me like they just didn't care.
Wet, wet, and soggy
It rained on Monday, we played on Saturday. Course was a swamp.
We had 90 degree rule with carts, but this course is a muddy mess.
Sinkeli pelaaaja paskana draivi päivänä
Kenttä kaunis, ja greenit hienossa kunnossa, GF n18euroa sis auton. Mutta kenttä oli tosi märkä ja mutainen. Mutta silti maksetun arvoinen
Wet w/ 0% chance of rain
We played Oleander and Pine Lakes yesterday. Was surprised to hear the cart staff mention one of the courses they just started allowing 90 degree rule that day, but when we started playing we understood. Not one tee box or fairway, much less rough, has been cut in several days. grass was covered 3/4 of the ball in the middle of the fairway. The worst part to me was when I called in about a week before making our tee times the staff mentioned how great of shape the courses were in. But the most confusing part is I live about 30 mins south of the course and we haven't had hardly any rain lately, so I got home and looked it up...1.35 inches on the last 30 days.
Fairway grass is as tall as my grass in my yard. Would not recommend this course to anyone.
Great Course!!!! I have played it a few times but considering the weather it was in great shape. Early fog delayed a little but that is not the courses fault. Great time playing with family.
Good course and well maintained. Staff was friendly and it all made for a good morning of golf.
Review of Indian Mound- nice course
The pro sent me to Indian Mound instead of Oleander. I enjoyed the layout- didn't see any Indian Mounds but lots of deer. At 6450 yards from the back tees it played longer than the card as the fairways did not have much roll. The grass appeared to be old school Bermuda. Decent variety of holes and plenty of room to hit off the tee. The course is surrounded by nature and reflects well on the tidewater experience. I enjoyed my late afternoon round and played 18 holes in under 2 hours.
Great natural setting wit no homes
Pine Lakes and Indian Mound at Jekyll Island well kept from tee to green. Great value. A must play along the Georgia coast.
Oleander is a nice old time course. No houses within the confines of the golf course.Greens a bit tatchy and needed to b. Verticut. Delightful layout. Sand traps could use new sand but again a fun golf experience.
Do Not Play
We booked thru Golfnow for the Oleander course 3 days in advance. When we checked in we were told in the pro shop that we would be playing Pine Lakes. Got to hole #2 and there were temporary greens for the par 3 at 50 yards. The pro shop nor the starter told us about the temporary green at #2. We called golfnow on hole #3 and all they could do was refund our booking fee which was very nice of them. The greens were in very bad condition. We only played 9 holes and left. We were told by the pro shop that they could give us a rain check but since we were on vacation and not coming back that did not work for us. No apology from anyone. Do not play or at least confirm ahead of time that you are playing the course you booked for. Pace of play was good because not many were playing the course probably for good reason.
Course Not like the other review claimed
This is a municipal course on a beautiful island. Greens were horrible, they had been air-raided awhile back and they never recovered. Many bald and ground under repair spots on the bumpiest greens ever. The greens are unplayable if you're a real golfer. Fairways being mowed with tons of cuttings left in the fairways. If your looking for a well manicured course this is not for you. It is convenient and inexpensive.
Family reunion golf outing
Very friendly staff; course is in good condition for being a state run course.
