Winding along the Atlantic Ocean, the Golf Club of Amelia Island at Summer Beach showcases the natural beauty of the Island. The golf course boasts a varied terrain that provides spectacular views throughout. Towering palms, pines, and oaks blanket the landscape and blustery ocean breezes sweep through the course, providing plenty of natural challenges.

The front nine holes of the golf course make their way through heavily forested parkland covered in shimmering lakes while the oceanfront back nine features scenic salt marshes and wide fairways. Although it is demanding at times, the Golf Club of Amelia Island at Summer Beach is forgiving enough to accommodate all levels of play.

Not Long but a Good Test

This McCumber/Littler design is not long but has plenty of trouble with water, trees, bunkers, and marsh to catch any errant shots. It gets off to a tough start with a tight par 4 and and sharp and long dogleg left par 5. Water is in play on much of the front nine and the marsh features on the back side. The wind off the Atlantic adds to the challenges. Carts feature GPS, and the staff are all helpful and friendly. While private if you stay at the Ritz you get access.

Superbly conditioned layout

The conditions of this course are impeccable. The Ritz Carlton is right on site, so the golf course is only playable as a guest at the hotel, or as a member. I was able to play it through a one-day event hosted by the FSGA. The golf course is not very long, and based on the tees for this tournament, I was hitting 4 iron off of the tee for most of the par 4s, which for me is about a 200 yard shot. Still, I enjoyed this course, and it would be nice to return and play this course again some time. If you are visiting here, it's definitely worth your time to play a round here.

Relaxing round of golf personifies all that's good about the Amelia Island lifestyle

The only way to access this private club is through a stay-and-play at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
The 6,696-yard course used to be long enough and strong enough to host a major event, the 1998 Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf. It's still kept in tournament condition with pure greens and a beautiful setting within the marshlands of the island.
A career day can be had from the short 6,156-yard blues if guests can stay out of the wetlands, especially on the back nine. The Mark McCumber/Gene Littler design is so roomy and comfortable that losing a ball is more pilot error than architectural cruelty.

This course was a great experience

This was the first time playing this course, and as expected, the experience was a great one. The course was in great condition; the layout was formidable; and couldn't ask for a better experience.

Great

An excellent layout. Spacious, but not a pushover by any means. Very well maintained. I really like this course.
