Oak Marsh is a Pete Dye-designed golf course that is one of three 18-hole courses at Omni Amelia Island Resort. 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.

Always enjoyable

Played both 17 & 18 September 2020. Pace of play was good... but not as good as previous rounds. Course was in good shape, even after some heaver rains the couple of days before we played. Always enjoyable venue... staff was very helpful and friendly. On site restaurant was average, at best.

Worth playing

It’s been raining heavy the last couple weeks so it was cart path only. Played on weekday in the am so only saw a few other golfers. Beautiful views and very positional type of course. Greens were immaculate although slower due to the rain, almost zero ball marks on them. Highly recommend

Great course and golf experience

Oak Marsh is a great course and definitely worth a stop. Played while staying on the island from out of town. Paid about $100 per person for a morning tee time on a Tuesday. A bit difficult to find on Google Maps. You just enter the main gate of the Omni resort and then cross the bridge to get to the public entrance.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Course is professionally run but laid back. Check in was easy. Range is small but serviceable and range balls were good quality. No beverage cart but the grill was easy to order from at the start and the turn. Layout of the course is challenging but fun and classic Pete Dye. Holes 7, 8, 9, 16, 17, and 18 are beautifully set on the marsh. Overall a great value and worth a visit if you are in the area.

Great track and great views

Course is in great condition from fairways to greens. Some difficult and some easy holes. Par 3 16 over the water is the signature hole for sure. Overall, enjoyed the day!
