Oak Marsh is a Pete Dye-designed golf course that is one of three 18-hole courses at Omni Amelia Island Resort. The Oak Marsh course meanders alongside the Atlantic Ocean, providing sweeping views and an ever-changing sea breeze.

Appropriately named after its terrain of scenic salt marshes and moss-draped heritage oaks, the golf course has a stunning landscape that is ideal for a challenging round. Dye protected the natural beauty of the island by carefully maintaining the tidal marshes, oceanfront dunes, grassland, and savannahs. The layout features tight fairways and small, bulk-headed greens, a classic Dye element. There are a variety of bunkers strategically placed throughout and water comes into play on fourteen holes.

Get a hot deal or don’t go.

Not worth $100 by a long shot so snag a hot deal or don’t go. Greens were pretty terrible, and super slow and it felt like playing off Astro turf. Areas around the a lot greens was like hitting off dirt. Some new sodded places on the fairway and some greens. Conditions were on par with a local muni.

Besides that tough course, cool layout and great views on some holes and great staff.

Finishing the 18th hole just in time

The course and weather were great great until the rain rolled in. Was drenched trying to finish the last hole.

Staff was were very nice. The only downside was trying to find the course through the maze on the Omni resort..

Great layout

Definitely a Florida feel to this one. Mossy trees, marsh carries, etc. I loved the layout and the risk/reward. Greens were not as good as I expected, with multiple hole punches and some dead areas. Lots of sand on the greens as well. Fairways were very good. I guess Covid was affecting the amenities, as there was no restaurant open before our 7:48 time and no cart person.

Good time

The outside service staff is the first to greet you and they were great. The shop staff was very friendly and helpful. The practice facility is very good and the starter was helpful. The course was in very good shape considering we are just coming out of winter. Overall I enjoyed the day.

Beautiful Course

This course is indeed a treasure
Ancient live oaks line all of the holes
It is a challenging course and the greens are fast and undulating
Some of the pin placements were very difficult
If you go bring your own snacks because the only way you’re going to eat at the turn is order something from the restaurant
I am at Charlie at the bag drop off and he was very nice as was the people at the front counter and the starter Ron was great
If you get a chance to play this course take it you won’t regret it I highly recommend it

Great facility but wait for the back nine before getting cocky

Purchased as a single and was matched up with three terrific guys. Drew was the class of the field and as Dennis the starter warned the back nine kicked my butt. Bring plenty of balls, I thought 6 balls would be enough and ended up borrowing a couple to finish the round. Staff was quick and friendly. All was great except thought I’d offer the rest of the foursome a round as the high scorer and to my surprise the 19th hole was closed? Sorry guys....awesome facility. Final comments:
A.) open the nineteenth hole
B.) better directions and signs out on the Highway or website

This course was in great condition and really fun to play. Definitely was not easy but a fair course. Staff was also extremely nice and pleasant to talk to. Only negative was that there’s no place to eat and get a drink at after your round!

Improvements noted

Course is in better shape. New tee boxes on several holes. Pace of play was quick without feeling. Rushed. GPS on carts add value and improve course knowledge and help speed play. Greens were just sanded and played slow 9-10. Great course design and Marsh is woven in the course layout. Had a great time and enjoyed the challenge.
