Where2Golf says: 

The Amelia Island Club: Located at the southern end of Amelia Island, the Long Point course combines some of the best attributes to be found on the other three courses at Amelia Island Plantation (Oak Marsh, Ocean Links and Amelia River). This probably explains why it is the members' favourite, and can be slightly more difficult for resort guests to secure a tee-time.

Wrapped into Tom Fazio's excellent layout are two testing, back-to-back oceanside par-3s (a combination also found on the Ocean Links course). 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. Also in common with its stablemates, 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, and want to sample the full array of tree-lined, lakeside, ocean-side and wetland golf that Amelia Island Plantation offers, then, like its members, Long Point may well be your preferred option.
