Take the good with the bad
The course is in decent shape. The greens are ugly in spots, but they roll well and hold shots well. The carts are very nice with great yardage and scoring technology. Tee boxes are not in very good condition. Regardless, there is a lot to like about the setting of Jekyll Island and the staff is very nice and helpful.
Great course for the money! But they could sure use a ranger or two! Got behind a foursome and they would not let us through! Pace of play was terrible! But course was good! Loved the layout!
Tough course - tight fairways, very thick rough. Love the design of the course. A few greens had some damage, but overall did not cause any problems. There are multiple courses at this facility - hope to play the others soon.
Run by idiots,,,,so what would you expect
No carts after noon!!. When asked why, the troll in the pro shop said....and I quote,,,,,"it's our policy".
So I guess these jerks feel that elderly golfers like my father should walk the course in 90 degree weather or come early and play on a packed course. What a bunch of bs.
By the way....their website is a lie....there is no longer 63 holes since some genius made the Dunes course the Oleander back nine and closed the original back nine........idiots.
A fine golf complex ruined by stupid state employees.
Indian Mound Jekyl Island
We had scheduled our tee time on Oleander which was closed the day we played so we were moved to Indian Mound. The course is not in very good condition. The greens have tufts of invasive grass and the fairways are spotty. However, the layout is nice and the environment very pretty.
Very nice course. Seems to be wet quite a lot of the time. We had Cart Path Only and that was a real drawback. I would almost not even play when it is Cart Path Only.
It was cart path only, so it was a little wet and played a bit slower. But the greens were good and it was pretty wide open.
Oleander, Jekyll Island
Nice layout, but virtually no grass in the fairways. Overseed has not grown in. Greens are painfully slow..
Great course for the price! Nice course, low traffic, and great value for a course on Jekyll Island. Will play again!
The past three years in a row there has always been some issue regarding play. This time, after prepaying and driving 200 miles for a weekend trip, we were told day of that no carts would be allowed due to recent rain. Not only would any other course just do cart path only, but there were carts driving all over the other courses for spectators during a tournament. The posted signs said no carts on any course, and our prepay said it included carts. Walking would not be an option for two members of our group for health reasons, and again, there were carts all over the other courses. On top of the the range was closed for the whole day. The last straw was the staff, who was incredibly rude when we asked them about it. I would strongly suggest looking elsewhere.
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.
