About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6607 yards
Slope 134
Rating 72.4
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.

Holiday Round

I was looking for an early round on a holiday Monday and found a 7:48 at Oak Marsh at a great price. No one was pair with me so I played as a single in just under 3 hours. Course was in fabulous shape, greens were smooth and fast. Every staff member was friendly and courteous. The starter was chatty and helpful and even let me go off a little early. No cart person, but there was water and ice on the course. Great value for the price and I'll definitely be back.

More of a dog park, than golf course.

There were more people walking their dogs on the course and people trying to find balls in the marshes, than golfers. Super frustration waiting for a dog to do its thing before you can tee off. Happened multiple times. Not something you would expect from a Omni resort course. Homeowners must run the course. Not a very good time.

Great course but marshals could have helped pace

We played on New Year’s Day and teed off mid morning. Course was well laid out and fun for all player levels.

Only complaint was pace of play. We played the front 9 in 1.5 hours and had the course all to ourselves. The marshal said there were only three groups on the course. We caught up with them at 14 and play ground to a halt. The first group was painfully slow and all suffered. With only three groups you’d have thought they could have asked the first group to pick up the pace or let the only other groups play through

OAK MARSH FOR THE 10TH TIME

THERE ARE VERY FEW COURSES IN NORTH FLORIDA THAT ARE THE EQUAL TO OAK MARSH.

I AM A MEMBER OF SAWGRASS BUT RATES ARE TOO PROHIBITIVE OVER THE HOLIDAYS TO BRING MY 3 SONS TO SAWGRASS TO PLAY( SAD) SO WE HIKED UP TO OAK MARSH.

THERE IS NO EQUAL TO THIS GOLF COURSE AND THE STAFF , THE AMENITIES and the Scenery.

THE STAFF IS GREAT, THE STARTER IS GREAT, THEY DON'T HOSE YOU WTH PAYING FOR GOLF BALLS AND THE COURSE IS AS DIFFICULT AS YOU PLAY IT.

I AM A 3 HCP AND MY SONS ARE 18 TO 22 HCP'S. (But can Hit it when their swings are in Sync)

WE PLAYED THE GOLD'S AT 6600 Because the Blues were only 6000 but its a great test from the Golds with some Long Forced carries.

I have played their now closed "OCEAN COURSE" and it doesn't hold a candle to the Marsh and the fact that it's closed is a non event to me.

This course is - by far- the best course on Golf Now and if you make the hour drive, you will NOT be disappointed. I promise.

The GREENS were excellent, the fairways good and the traps were well maintained. They DON"T Cut CORNERS on Maintaining the area of Play. People need to Fix their ballmarks and drop sand n their divots BUT thats the Golfer's fault.

There are some great Holes, as well. # 9 is Superior. A Long PAr 5 along the Marsh.

# 16 Par 3 is one of the best par 3's you'll ever play and 17 from the GOLD's is a 200 yard forced carry playing at about 425 yards and the #1 HCP hole.

18 is a slight dogleg PAr 5 with a Possibility of getting home in 2 IF you can carry the Marsh n front of the Green... These are the 3 best holes in a ROW and a great way to Finish with the Sun to your back and the Low Country Intracoastal open to the West.

Miss it at your peril.... This course needs to stay OPen and operating at the highest standards and make the DRIVE. It is SO WORTH IT!!!

The BAR is great and the Restaurant and the BAck porch area that overlook the 9th Green is a sweet spot.

This is a PRIVATE COURSE level facility. Not some Chincy, Low end Course with a dreadful facility and a negative Vibe from the staff.....Even the Cart Employees are upbeat and Kind....

I absolutely LOVE this place and would play it over ANY Course listed on GOLF NOW!

It is the Equal of Sawgrass and Marsh Landing better than the Valley Course and friendlier than the Stadium Course. Nothing else on Golf Now is even close....
