Where2Golf says: 

Amelia River Golf Club: Formerly known as Royal Amelia Golf Links, Amelia River is a well laid out, varied and always challenging design. Although located close to Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport, you would never guess that fact, given the very natural and quiet environment in which these well crafted holes unfold.

The rather open and linksy theme of the good-length opening par-5 returns from time-to-time, interspersed with more wooded stretches, where pines, oaks, palmettos, stylish bunkering and rippling earthmounds attractively frame the holes. The excellent collection of par-3s, usually with water in close attendance, culminate with a real gem at the 17th. This fabulous island-green par-3 bears an uncanny resemblance to the infamous par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass; the slightly larger green at Amelia River is set 30 yards farther back than the TPC's.

The small lakes and ponds that threaten at several holes are ably supplemented by Alligator Creek, which meanders through part of the course, most notably crossing the fairways at the closing hole on each of the two nine-hole loops. Having safely navigated your ball over the creek at the 18th, you are rewarded on the final green with expansive views over marshlands, as well as the river that gives the course its name.
