Amelia Island Plantation (16-18)
February 16-17, 2008
All tournament rounds are scheduled on
the Oak Marsh Course.
Please see "Hotels" below for information on rooms at Amelia Island.
The Oak Marsh Golf Course is one of the truly classic Pete Dye designed golf courses in the world. The course, built in 1972 shortly after the completion of the Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is noted for its tight fairways and small greens, meandering along serpentine salt marsh creeks and through the moss draped heritage oaks that Amelia Island is famous for.
At par 72, this 6,580 yard course has fourteen holes with water hazards and numerous bulkheaded greens. A variety of bunkers are placed throughout the course to add to the challenge and a natural approach has been maintained as well with the use of coquina shell cart paths, native plant life and preserved habitats for the local wildlife.
