Amelia River Golf Club
Amelia River Golf Club is located on Amelia Island, just north of Jacksonville and within minutes of the historic town of Fernandina Beach. Renowned as one of the best-conditioned courses in the area with incredibly smooth greens, sculpted around a forest of majestic Live Oaks, Sable Palms, Pines and Wax Myrtles.
This par 72 track, designed by Tom Jackson, plays to a yardage of 6,823 from the back tees. It's pristine condition features well manicured rolling fairways, smooth bunkers and greens that challenge all skill levels. This course is unique in character and is a treat to play.
Amelia River consists of 18 holes of challenging golf where ball control and accuracy are keys to a great game. The fairways are wide and open, giving the golfer a sense of a traditional Scottish links course on some holes and a narrow tree lined experience on others. The 13th hole is a good example of the course’s challenges. This long par five runs along the border of the Fernandina Beach Airport and is a strategic three shot hole. Too long and left at lay up and you will have to deal with a water hazard. The wind can play havoc with this hole as it reminds one of an open links style design. In contrast #9 is a tree lined par four with very little room for error and includes a forced carry over Alligator Creek.
The signature 17th hole is a par three surrounded by water demanding an accurate shot to the island green which closely resembles another very famous golf hole in our area! The final hole ends at the edge of the Amelia River and its expansive tidal marsh.

Great value! Excellent greens. I used flyover view on my phone as scorecard is Spartan at best. Course is excellent with strategically placed bunkers and water. Challenging but enjoyable. Friendly staff. I was impressed by the respect shown to me by the teens on the course who allowed me to play through. Nice driving range! I’ll be back!

Great course for the price!
Played this course with 3 buddies for the first time and had an overall great experience. Staff were very kind and the course was in great shape, lots of roll on fairways and greens unlike my local courses currently which required a little adjusting but overall a really cool format playing right against the airport, especially on #1, #5, and #13

Bang for the buck
By booking on golf now the value was fair however as a walk up the course is over priced.

Love this course, but a member and 3 of his buds were in front of us from hole 11 onward. There were 3 holes open in front of them and we were a twosome. They would not let us through and they played as if they had a $10 Nassau working. We never said or acted as if we were bothered, but they acted as if they were the only ones on the course. They were deliberate, ignorant of golf etiquette, and even within a foot of the hole, they marked their ball, then putted out after the others putted. There was also 2 groups in back of us stacked up, all due to the discourteous golfers in front of us. Please tell your members to be aware of their place and the backups they cause.

Great course, at the wrong time
I have played this course many times over the years when we vacation on Amelia Island. It is consistently in excellent condition, and has a very friendly staff. The course is playable for the 'weekend warrior', as well as challenging for the single digit handicappers. I do want to caution someone who is a non- loca,l and wanting to play to be careful when scheduling their tee time. I played the front nine in approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, but the back nine was a different matter. Evidently every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings an elderly group calling themselves 'The Rat Pack', have a 9:30 regular tee time. I was trapped behind 5 foursomes playing at snail's pace. I highly recommend this course, but you should definitely acquire about their tee times before scheduling your round.

Great course and friendly staff. There's been obvious improvement in the last few months based on previous reviews. A staffer mentioned a new super and he's doing a great job. 3 or 4th time playing here and I always enjoy it.

We love hearing about our golfers' experiences, chrismiller21. Please tell us more about what you enjoyed from your round with us. Thanks for choosing us!
Played two other local courses the past three days, and both were mediocre at best as far as shape. However, Amelia River was in awesome shape, and the greens were phenomenal. Would love to have seen them faster, but the greens were true and no bad spots anywhere. It was in best shape I have seen it and will play when back in town again. My son and I played it in 3 hours and started at 7:30 behind a couple groups!
