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 golf experience at Oak Marsh

Played at Oak Marsh 3 times while on vacation at the Omni Resort. Played the white tee which were about right for a senior player. The course wasn't crowded this time of year which made it fast for us.. We played one 18 hole round in 3 hours. Fairways were great, but you better watch out for the greens as they will eat your lunch!
Staff (Michael and Briana) as well as others were very helpful.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied.

Birdie on 12

Bring your camera, there are breathtaking views on this course. My favorite was on 15, walking up to the green on this par four, I noticed something on top of the flag. It was a large owl, I got to within
25 yards of the green before it took off.... On 14 the flamingos were lining the trees off to the left of the green. Some would fly by us,
I think some folks may feed them.
The course is great, generous fairways on some holes, tight on a few.
Greens are receptive, ball will stick. Some greens are small, so that works. Fairways tee boxes all in great shape. Play this course you will not be disappointed.

Excellent course but beware additional fees.

Course was in excellent shape despite a lot of recent rain. Challenging but playable for golfers of all skill levels. Carts with built in GPS.

Surprised at check-in with additional fees of "Internet Service Charge" and "Links Service Charge" so booked rate was deceptive.

Humid Sunday Morning

Course is in great condition. Some Tee boxes moved up to overseed and repair normal tees which made for some driveable par 4's. Only complaint was one group slowing the whole course, no marshall to monitor the course.
