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.

Our foursome followed another foursome and waited 3-6 minutes on each tee. Horrible course management.

Great scenery

Pretty neat course. It meanders through some of the Marsh with those holes being totally exposed to the elements. The other holes go throughout some very nice homes and gorgeous mossy oak trees. Some holes are easy distances and very gettable while others make up for their generous distances. Bunkers positioned well surrounding the greens so make sure you pay attention of where not to miss and ponds and hazards are positioned from off the tee so again just look forward on the hole and see what’s out there for you. Here’s the funny thing though, the greens rolled great and definently held shots when hitting into them however the grass seems very thin on some of them all most bare and it’s like there’s a layer of black algae or fungus under the grass but again, it did not affect the putts, not sure how they do it but they do. Great clubhouse -and had good range and putting area. Carts have GPS and also USB charging ports. Hope this helps, enjoy and good luck!

Senior Suicide

I felt compelled to write a review. To get to the point, I understand from staff that there were rule changes after the first of the year. No more FREE range balls. This seems ridiculous considering the price for a round of golf and the balls are Recoverable! Also, my main complaint! The course is great for walking but poor for riding. Many of the fairways were Roped Off along the cart path to restrict 90 degree rule, so a walk across the fairway to evaluate, back to pick a club and back for the stroke. This not the the proper way to play! It was my second time at the course and I am an intermediate golfer. I won’t be back. But like I said, the staff were great, so maybe, you can put up with restrictions.

Florida Residents

Very disappointed that more tee times are not made available and kept only for Florida Residents
No one was ahead of us or behind. It is off season at Fernandina Beach and you should make more tee times at great rates available to promote play

Very Nice

Really beautiful course, in nice shape. It's a resort course so not the most challenging (for good golfers!) but there are several holes that have good risk/reward opportunities and you have to be fairly creative many holes. Many houses line the fairways but at least if your on a hole without homes close by you have marsh and bay to consider. If I was a better duffer I would probably enjoy it even more.
I recommend the course to average to above average golfers. Visually appealing as well.

Nice day on a Dye layout

This is a fun course. The day was cold and windy but when the sun peaked out it felt great. The course seemed to have some maintenance going on and it was not as quiet and pristine as I remember it. (They were respectful of golfers thought) Most holes are lined with homes on the course but there are some very lovely marsh views and some challenging shots. Most Dye courses I've played have more undulations in the fairway and this seems a little different but it was in good condition for this time of year and the wind made it challenging for high ball hitters on a few of the more narrow fairways. I think the interesting beauty of the layout is the water features. The way it meanders around the fairways/greens on a few holes is a very attractive natural look and adds a bit of thinking on lay-up shots. On two holes, I hit what I thought was a perfect second shot only to find I was in the marsh or water. Longer is not always better so judge your layups accurately.
Bunkers were a little firm and didn't have that plush soft feel and could use more powdery sand. About half of the holes were roped off so driving on the fairways/rough was not allowed the day I played.
The staff was very pleasant. The FL resident greens fee (35) is a very reasonable rate but you have to pay for range balls ($9/bag) and there was a $1 internet convenience fee, so add 10 bucks to whatever you paid online. All in all, it is still a reasonable rate for this resort-style course.
This was my third time playing this course and I will return again. The pro shop is reasonably well-stocked with what you would expect.
I have not eaten at the restaurant so no comment there. But it is part of the Omni so I would expect it to meet or exceed expectations.
I enjoy this course and its sister course (long point). I would not hesitate to recommend this.

Great Resort Course

Golf course was in great shape, and my group and I really enjoyed it. The course is challenging but fair, it’s a Pete Dye design the layout thru the inner costal is special. #16 -#18 is everything that you can want out of a finish. The staff is very friendly and they have a great pro shop.

Nice course but...

Course was in ok shape-it has been played a lot but that is to be expected of a resort course. We got a good price and that was good. But nowhere was it mentioned that 8 of the 9 holes on the front were cart path only. This was a challenge for some on my group. When one person had to stop after 9, she asked for a credit for 9 holes and was told no! She was also told that the holes weren’t cart path only-yet there were stakes and strings along the entire hole. The staff in the pro shop was very disrespectful and therefore we will choose another course the next time we visit. The restaurant staff and cart guys were very nice.
