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.

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.

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.

Quiet and peaceful day in nature on Amelia Island's Oak Marsh golf course. The hot and humid weather enabled us to play a fast paced round while giving us the time to enjoy the Ibis's, rabbits and fabulous marsh views.

We picked a fairly hot day to play but the course was certainly not crowded and I was surprised. This is a very nice course for the amount we spent on our hot deal. The cart girl called our lunch order in while we were on the 8th hole so when we made the turn it was waiting for us. Pace of play was what ever we wanted because no one in front of us but we had a 2 man team to catch us fairly quick so we let them play thru. The course was in very good shape and I just wish it wasn't an hour and 1/2 drive for me or I would play more often. We are very fortunate to live in Florida where golf is available year round. Everyone should visit the courses in the Amelia Island area as they are very well maintained. This one will bring a smile to your face. Hope you have as much fun as I did. God bless America!

My friend was on Amelia for business and we decided to play here. Fee was greatly reduced due to greens having recently been aerated (but effects were minimal). We had the course to ourselves early on Saturday afternoon. Very picturesque course with some very memorable holes. Great experience.

Other than the greens just being punched, the course was in great shape. It was almost like no one had been playing on it. The fairways were plush. Very hard to get into a lot of trouble on the course. It is fairly open for the most part.

I’ve been coming to Amelia Island for the last three years and decided to play Oak Marsh because of the great FL/GA resident discount. Wow, what a beautiful course with some very nice scenery. The course is fair but tough at the same time, this is a shot placement and accuracy type course. The greens played very well and rolled true, this will be part of my course rotation from here on out!

This was my first visit to Amelia Island. Made a deal with the family to let me play here while they visited the downtown area. I still believe I got the better deal! The aerated greens have completely healed and the fairways are perfect too. In fact I was impressed by how well the entire course was maintained. There are several areas on the course were ice and water are provided. Even the cart girl came by many times to make sure I was fine. The entire staff was nice and very friendly. In closing, just when you think it doesn’t get any better, you are presented with three picturesque finishing holes. Hope to visit again...soon!!!

I was staying at Omni Hotel. I wanted to try Long Point but found out it was Ladies club tournament. I must say I was impressed with the course conditions as it poured rain most of the night and we were off the cart path. I played saturday also. both rounds were finished in 3.5 hours. The last three holes are spectacular. What a way to finish.

I was able to store my clubs between rounds. Enjoyed lunch at the grill. Highly recommend.
