Amelia Island Plantation is an ideal location for many of my customers. Why? Because it has 4 golf courses, a full range of housing types to choose from and access to nightlife and dining nearby. I think this fits the needs of the typical Golf Exclusives customer.
The beauty of Amelia Island Plantation is bathed in ocean-topping sunrises each morning and spectacular sunsets over green salt marshes each evening.

Attractive accommodations and superior activities for family vacations, golfers and tennis players, premier meeting facilities, and Florida’s most beautiful natural surroundings welcome every visitor to Amelia Island Plantation.
The Oak Marsh Golf Course is one of the truly classic Pete Dye designed golf courses in the world. The Amelia Island golf course was built in 1972, shortly after the completion of the Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is noted for its tight fairways and small greens, meandering along serpentine salt marsh creeks and through the moss draped heritage oaks for which Amelia Island is famous.
Long Point, a Tom Fazio creation, is an 18-hole layout designed distinctively among primal marshlands and the towering sand dunes of the Atlantic. Long Point is the Club Member’s primary course; however, resort guests may reserve tee times 24 hours in advance.
Amelia River, (formerly Royal Amelia) is open to the public and located just three miles from the resort’s main entrance. It offers a Tom Jackson- designed 18-hole layout, sculpted around a forest of majestic live oaks, sabal palms, pines and wax myrtles.
A skilled culinary team of chefs, an inventive cuisine and a variety of dining venues have earned Amelia Island Plantation a reputation for excellence in dining.
The Ocean Grill at the Amelia Inn offers the finest chops and the most recent trends in food and food preparation. Enjoy organic specialties, plus local and seasonal produce and seafood favorites.
For a casual dining experience, guests can dine outside under the covered porch at Marche Burette, all the while enjoying the Florida sunshine. After a pleasant lunch, head inside to Cooper’s Homemade Ice Cream & Desserts, for a delectable treat, sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
If you are headed toward the beach, stop poolside for a quick bite at the Beach Club Grill. If the golf course is your destination, be sure to check out the Golf Shop Restaurant. If seafood is your choice, enjoy the charmingly casual The Verandah with the day’s freshest local seafood.

Named “Silver Medal Golf Resort” by Golf Magazine, Amelia Island Plantation boasts 72 championship holes. It also has been named as one of only 10 “Green Golf Resorts” for its environmental commitment in the care of its courses.
Amelia Links, designed by Pete Dye and Bobby Weed, is a 36-hole configuration including two signature golf courses, Oak Marsh and Ocean Links.
Ocean Links has 5 holes along the ocean and concludes with a par three whose green is strategically placed in the waters of Red Maple Lake. The Amelia Island golf course winds through six miles of the natural sand dunes and seaside terrain that make this resort so special. It can be said that this is as much a nature tour as it is a round of golf. The course yardage of 6,300 yards is somewhat deceiving since small greens, narrow fairways and prevailing winds make the course play much longer. At par 70, these 18 holes provide a challenge to golfers of all levels. Named by Golf for Women as one of the “50 Best Courses for Women”, its proximity to the ocean and the ever changing sea breeze provide the golfer with exhilarating views and intriguing play.
