Where2Golf says: 

The Amelia Island Resort/Club (Oak Marsh 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).

Fabulous marshland vistas and a wonderfully testing Pete Dye layout are the hallmarks of the excellent Oak Marsh course. Often used as the resort's "competition course", the two nine-hole loops meander along a mix of good-width and some tighter fairways. Straight-away and dog-legging holes are skirted by drive-thru sandy waste areas, while moss-laden oaks, pines, palms and other tree varieties screen off the unobtrusive housing and maintain a natural feel throughout.

The very good par-4 9th gives you a taster for the scenic highlights to come on the back-nine. The stunning par-3 12th brings you out alongside expansive marshlands, which connect somewhere in the far distance to the Amelia River; the Long Point course is on your left across the reed-filled swamp.

Oak Marsh's fabulous closing trio, starts with a challenging tee-to-green carry over the edge of the marsh at the par-3 16th; its well bunkered green beautifully framed by live oaks and a lonesome pine. More marshland views and challenging carries accompany your progress down the long par-4 17th and terrific risk-reward par-5 18th. Although not Dye's most extravagant layout, the Oak Marsh provides plenty of golfing challenges and two wonderfully scenic marshside stretches to close out each of the nine-hole loops.
