Type Resort
Oak Marsh is a Pete Dye-designed golf course that is one of three 18-hole courses at Amelia Island Plantation. The Oak Marsh course meanders alongside the Atlantic Ocean, providing sweeping views and an ever-changing sea breeze. Appropriately named after its terrain of scenic salt marshes and moss-draped heritage oaks, the golf course has a stunning landscape that is ideal for a challenging round. Dye protected the natural beauty of the island by carefully maintaining the tidal marshes, oceanfront dunes, grassland, and savannahs. The layout features tight fairways and small, bulk-headed greens, a classic Dye element. There are a variety of bunkers strategically placed throughout and water comes into play on fourteen holes.

Great course

Beautiful course with gorgeous moss covers trees. Course in very good condition. Staff friendly and helpful. Lucky it was a very slow day so we basically had the course to ourselves. Imagine it could get very crowded if there was a conference at the Omni who were playing golf as a bonus.

Highly recommend.

Always a pretty course, short but narrow- plenty of challenges.

Course conditions were excellent!

Regular price too high for me, but Golf Now came through!

One of my FAVORITES!

Oak Marsh continues to be one of the best courses overall to play in North Florida. Rates are definitely commensurate with the quality of the course and the condition never disappoints. It is challenging with beautiful marsh views that are just an additional amenity to the overall great experience. I will be BACK!

A slice (pardon the expression) of golf heaven

A lovely course in an idyllic setting. A few forced carries and intimidating greens, but overall not too much of the Pete Dye-ishness that elsewhere causes railroad-tie-a phobia. Friendly staff, great practice facilities, and overall well kept but not too fussy. Put it together with a great Golf Now price and it made for a pretty near perfect morning.

Great course!!

The course was in great shape and very green from all the rain. Everything from the Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Pace of play was good for a busy course. No long waits and no one was pushing up on us.

This course is a great value and well worth the drive! Will definitely be back to play again!!!

Awesome for the price

If you are staying at the Omni Resort and can score a $50 round from Golfnow, you are winning! The course is fun and extremely well kept. I played two rounds and never encountered dinged up greens.

Didn't have my A Game

The tips are a beast. I had problems with the narrow fairways, 2 and 17 ate my lunch today. Next time I come out I will move up to the blue tees, Grreen are prefect but the 12 downgrade and 6 agaist the grain had me guessing. Pete Dye is a master! Course could not be in better shape. Played on a $50 hot deal

Great place until the 7th hole

Course was fair at Best

staff was good

got into an argument with the Ranger and he threw us off the course and told us not to come back over the fact They had four groups on one hole and I wanted to play through but they didn’t allow it

Response from Oak Marsh Golf Course on 07/10/2018:
Thank you for playing Oak Marsh Golf Course. We’re sorry to hear your experience was anything short of 5 stars. Thursday was a busy day for us but the pace of play was still moving along smoothly. We understand you may have had a conversation with the ranger but I can assure you that you were not thrown off the course. On a busy day like Thursday, we just ask that golfers don’t take it upon themselves to skip multiple groups during the round. Again, we apologize if you didn’t enjoy your round as much as we’d hope for but we definitely would like you to come back and give us another try in the near future.
