Where2Golf says: 

The Amelia Island Resort/Club (Long Point course): Located at the southern end of Amelia Island, the Amelia Island Resort (and members Club) is home to the Long Point and Oak Marsh courses. Previously the stable also included the Ocean Links course (now closed) and the Amelia River course (now a separate club).

Wrapped into Tom Fazio's excellent Long Point layout are two testing, back-to-back oceanside par-3s. This testing par-3 duo starts with the 15th, played to a nicely elevated, pudding bowl green. The 16th requires a tee-shot to a sunken green, and provides a chance to admire one of the Island's best beach and coastal views. In keeping with the Oak Marsh course, Long Point also boasts several challenging holes played beside open, expansive marshland. This scenic wetland habitat eventually connects with the Amelia River, somewhere in the distance.

Long Point has a wonderful mix of straight and dog-legging holes, some quite tight, others more forgiving, and many played through tree-lined corridors of oak, pine and palm. Water also enters the mix, not least at the excellent par-5 6th which skirts a good-sized pond en route to a well bunkered green.

If you're limited to one round on Amelia Island, but tempted to sample the full array of tree-lined, lakeside, ocean-side and wetland golf that the island offers, then Long Point may be your preferred option. But worth noting, it's also much favoured by the Club's members ... and tee-times are harder to arrange than on the Oak Marsh course.
