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.

Highly recommend.

Really nice course. Play from the correct tees, and you will have fun. The course was in great shape. The only mild negative was slow greens imo. But not everyone likes fast greens.

Good Round

Greens were in good shape compared to other courses in the area, fairways also in decent condition. We had rain for part of the round a moments of back ups but overall Oak Marsh is a beautiful and challenging course.
I hope some day they open the Ocean Course back up!

Terrific course

First time playing Oak Marsh and I was not disappointed. The course layout is amazing with several marsh views. The course was flawless from the tees to the greens. Amazing deals to play here for under $50 is phenomenal.

Wife is away we can play

Great course. No. 16 from the tips, magnificent... Nice place a must play.
Course has a lot of bunker, water to navigate. Postage stamp greens on short holes with elevation. Greens have a good amount of slopes.
If you like golf you will love this course...

Really Nice Course

For the time of year, it's the best course I've played recently. The fairways and greens were in great shape. The greens rolled well. Really like the layout. If you play from the correct tees, you can have a lot of fun. Can't wait to go back.

Chamber of Commerce Day

After being closed for almost 5 weeks, Oak Marsh reopened today and I booked a tee time last night when I saw the weather was going to be 73 and sunny. I do not think I have ever played here but wow, what an absolute treat!! No divots in the fairways and no ball marks on the greens as COVID-19 has kept golfers home. The course was in superb condition and being able to walk it was a real treat. Other than no cart girl/guy coming around with refreshments, the experience could not have been better. Perfect weather, perfect course and a true treat!!

Great course with low play right now

Marsh Oak is a terrific course. The fairways are pristine. Some of the greens have some minor winter damage that is being treated. The rest of the greens are in very good shape and putt well.

Because of the COVID restrictions many of the amenities have been cut back. Also, there are no ball washers on the course and no rakes in the traps. It would be nice if people playing out of the traps smoothed out their divots.

It is always a delight to play this course.
