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. Good fairways and fast greens. Rough was very thin, probably due to the season. Needed a ranger on the back nine, two hours on the front 2.5 hours on the back. A foursome of older golfers slowed down significantly on the back.

Connected to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, Oak Marsh is user friendly and a decent value for the visiting player. We like the layout and look forward to the last three holes which are challenging. Our only complaints are pace of play and food availability at the turn. Seems like they should have a system for arranging a sandwich at the turn, rather than having to run in, order, wait and then go....slows down everybody . Also no ranger on a Sunday with a full tee sheet, so it got slow. We finally saw a ranger on the 18th (4:30) and he asked if we were having a good day. Nice older guy, but not getting the ranger part straight. Round finished in 4:45, which seems long to us.

From the bag staff, to Krystal in the Pro Shop, to starter ol' Charles, weather too, it was a magnificent Saturday. I've played around Amelia Island and this is the best of GolfNow. Pete Dye always bring a tough course, which I enjoy. Play the right tees and you will be thrilled with the layout. Course was generous off the tee, narrowed to the green. Then, a good short game was needed. Greens, today, were fast, true, with some grain. The asst pro warned me about shifting grain. But I sunk the 20 footer on 18, so all was good. Couple from VA and Irish fellow from Boston were a treat to play with.

Course was in great condition for February. Greens were slow due to the very damp weather but perfect otherwise. Make sure you play the correct tees for your game. Generous fairways but interesting second shots.

Two groups ahead of our twosome, group of three slow played the whole back nine and twosome ahead of us didn’t hit any second shot until the green was open, even on the par 5’s, after hitting a 100 yard drive they wouldn’t hit a second stroke until the green was open. Course needs a ranger to keep things moving and after two warnings should pull slow players off the course.
