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.

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.

Always enjoyable and challenging!

Omni Amelia is an outstanding golf course! Everything from the tee boxes to the greens and fairways are immaculately kept up. The greens roll true and are fast. Top notch course, I love that Florida residents get it at a reduced rate. Makes it affordable for most. Come play here!!!

Good not great

190 to play this course, will not do it again. Would play again for something between 90-110 bucks. For 190 I was expecting much better conditions. The bunkers/sand seem to be of pretty cheaper quality, greens are fine but not great.

Views were certainly beautiful on a few holes, but you see most of the water views on the website.

This is a challenging course too, it’s a Pete Dye so you should know what your getting into, but would not advise to a higher handicapper (over 20 index).

Staff was fantastic other than our lunch waitress, who had some serious attitude. (We were being as nice and gracious as possible).

Great time and course

I got together with my college friends and we truly enjoyed the Oak Marsh Golf Course. We played from the Blue tees on the Pete Dye course that winds through the salt marsh creeks and Spanish-moss draped oaks. The course is beautiful, teaming with wildlife to add to the championship experience. The course is challenging but fair to the higher handicap cap golfers. You have to play strategically because of the water, marsh and sand. The clubhouse is well stocked and the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a practice driving,chipping, sand and putting area to provide ample warmup. Overall the course was is very good condition.

Great Golf Course

We really enjoyed our round of golf. Half our group played from the Gold tees and the others played from the Blues. The course was in great shape, pace of play was excellent, and the course was challenging. The layout along the marsh creates some great views. Highly recommend this course and you won't be disappointed.

My return to Oak Marsh

Haven't played the oak marsh course in 10 years. Had a fantastic day here starting at the driving range and continuing to the great par 5 closing hole. Course was in great shape and I love the layout, bunkering and undulating small greens. Staff was extremely friendly and hooked us up with two great guys. Currently am a 15 handicapper and played from the white tees. Just love the location and the way it winds through the manicured properties bordering some of the course.before moving to the wide open marsh areas on the back nine. A fantastic golf experience.

Wonderful golf course. Played several times in February and enjoyed every round. Every hole is
a challenge with sand traps and many with water in play. Staff is accomodating and helpful.
Course is in great shape and very scenic as well. A must play if in the area.

Iconic Dye course

Pete Dye did it right in many ways on this course. This course is a Gem and the staff from the moment you turn in gives you first class service. Micheal you and your staff are a cut above everyone else! If you looking for a course to play with scenic marsh views and iconic Pete Dye challenges then the Oak Marsh course is a must play. It was well worth the 2 hour drive from Hilton Head area. Will definitely be back soon!

Oak Marsh

Very good condition, most fairways like carpet and greens are fast and true. Only complaint is that on some holes they had cart path only, and they were on par 5 holes with no apparent reason for this. Made it difficult for club selection and wasted a lot of time walking back and forth to the cart.
