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 feel, 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 a strong collection of par-3s, the short but seriously water-flanked 5th is an 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.

Did you know?

Amelia Island is one of the southernmost of the "Sea Islands", a chain of barrier islands that stretch along the USA's east coast from South Carolina to Florida. The island is about 13 miles from north to south, and 4 miles wide at its widest point. It is sometimes referred to as the "Island of Eight Flags", having flown those of the following since 1562: France, Spain, Great Britain, the Patriots of Amelia Island, the Green Cross of Florida, Mexico, the Confederate States of America and the United States.

In 1998 the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, a PGA Champions Tour event, was hosted at the Golf Club of Amelia Island.
