Jekyll Golf

Indian Mounds course was in great shape today. Fairways were generous in width, rough was about 2-3 inches high and the greens were in good shape. The course is not too long from the tips, 6400 yds. Played early and finished in 2.5 hrs. with a cart. For a “Hot Deal” in Golfnow - it was a great round for the price. Plenty of wildlife as well. Wind can be very deceptive, trees typically block out what you feel at ground level but can eat up a ball if you get it above the tree line.

3. Puddles & small ponds on fairways & sand traps
4. Cart path only extend pace by 1 hour.

Indian Mound

All in all, a good course. It was pretty busy and we were waiting on 2 groups ahead of us on the entire back nine. Again, it was a descent course.

Overrated

Saw the course was a 4 star “golf resort” and only being an hour away I figured I’d give it a try. Pull up to the bag drop and unloaded our clubs while 2 employees sat about 10’ away watching instead of grabbing them for us. Driving range was closed so no warm up balls. Tee boxes were thin and overgrown. Fairway grass was average, although wet from rain this week but what can you do. Greens were the worst part of the whole experience. Slower than Christmas and you couldn’t differentiate them from the fairways. Pace of play was also slow for the front as we were stuck behind a couple foursomes of hacks rolling the ball from one side of the fairway to the other. Was able to book the round for $35 a person but would never pay that much again to play there. Also important to note you must pay $8 a car for a parking pass for Jekyll Island. Not saying it’s the worst I’ve ever played but there is much nicer courses available for the money.

Nothing special

None of the Jekyll Island courses have completely recovered from Irma damage, but the fairways seemed quite sticky on this course and the greens were the slowest of the 3 sets. The layout is nothing outstanding, with a few moderately interesting holes.

The course

Love the layout play from the white tees. The only thing I got rained out after the 10th hole. I hope to finish before I go back home but the staff said the rain out pass was good for a year. The staff was GREAT!!!!!!

Nice track, poor condition

This course would have been very nice had the conditions been better. The greens were very fuzzy, causing them to be slow. A couple holes had severe damage to the greens. Most tee boxes were un mown, which isn't a huge deal, but it isn't how it is supposed to be. There was no one playing on Memorial Day, so we flew around without hitch, which made the course more enjoyable. Jekyll Island is a gorgeous place and they have a gold mine if they put more money towards the conditioning the courses. Overall, it's not bad golf for $20 bucks. I wouldn't pay much more for it.

Great layout

This was the second time in 3 weeks that my fiancé and I drove 1.5 hours to golf Jekyll Island. Staff is super friendly and courses are in great condition. There were a few greens that need some work but it didn't affect the way they played. No over crowding or waiting for groups in front of us. We played Indian Mound this visit and the Pine Lakes the last. Will definitely be back again for a great round of golf.

This was my 2nd Jekyll

Will be back to play the Pines next and combo it with the Dunes. Everything was as I anticipated a beautiful somewhat challenging course amongst the trees. You would not know there was civilization around you. If you are looking for serenity and a great day out this is the place to go

bad greens

Course layout is nice but green conditions are bad. Pace of play is slow. Starter sent me off back 9 as i was a single and moved right around only to find 20 players lined up on one. I was offered to play out on Oleander but after 13 holes came to a stop ( got some extra golf but was not my goal). So i headed back over to finish my round on Indian. After 6 holes guess who? the large group i found on one.
