Where2Golf says: 

The Golf Club of Amelia Island: Located in the middle part of Amelia Island, this well-laid out and excellently maintained golf course is open to its members and resort guests staying at the adjacent Summer Beach and Ritz-Carlton resorts. Here is a classic parkland layout, weaving between plenty of oaks and some discreetly distanced, large villas. The very good front-nine loop is perhaps eclipsed by an even better back-nine, which exudes a slightly more open character, with some attractive wetland areas and a small hill to climb. The tree-lined front-nine is laid out on relatively flat terrain, with ponds threatening on all but two of the holes. The generally good-width fairways are attractively lined with seasoned oaks; the par-5 2nd and 6th holes both prodigiously doglegging into water protected greens. As you head down the straight, par-4 10th, you'll notice a subtle change of scene, with a more open feel to the course and a greater blend of woodland and wetland habitats. Among the strong collection of par-3s, the short but seriously water-flanked 5th is a elegant parkland hole, while the downhill, good-length 16th is played to an almost island-green, very attractively but dangerously surrounded by an encircling wetland area. The climb up to the green on the short par-5 15th and tee-shot back down again at 16, infuses a touch of elevation change (but no sea views) into this always well-presented layout.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
