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.

Beautiful views

Loved the course layout even the easy holes made me think about how to play it. Greens were perfect. They were fast and smooth! Keep the ball below the hole. Fairways were excellent! The last three holes coming home are so picturesque and could be featured in any magazine. I can’t wait to play this course again!

Beautiful course

Great layout, greens in good shape but a bit slow for my liking. Fairways were okay for January. Sand traps were excellent. Par threes on the back nine were very difficult with the 48 MPH gusts that we encountered the day we played. Would like to come back for another round on a less windy day

Enjoyable experience

Fun resort course. Staff were friendly and pace of play was great. While my wife and I teed off behind a foursome we were finished in 3 hours and fifteen minutes. Greens and bunkers in fine condition and fairways were generally good. If I had a complaint it’s trying to figure out why so many holes were cart path only. Some that weren’t were wet while some cart path only holes seemed quite dry and firm. That said besides it being very chilly it was a fun day and would return

Pace of Play

The pace of play was horrible.

Regardless of the holidays, foursomes showing disregard for other golfers on the course should be addressed by having adequate staff to monitor the course.

People hitting multiple shots, searching for golf balls and lingering on the fairways and greens is inexcusable.

As a two-some, we had 2 foursomes playing painfully slow and therefore we played the front 9 holes in 2 1/2 hours on a Tuesday.

The green fees were steep enough to expect better course supervision and enforced pace of play..

Short par 4s, tricky greens, great layout!

Loved it so much I played it 2 days in a row. Staff is great as is pace of play. There are at least 5 short par 4s where you really just need to place it 160-200 out and hit a wedge in. You will double at least 1 hole under 300 yards as they all have their own challenges. Only downside for the course, please don't paint the greens. It's winter and people understand the grass is a bit brown, you don't need to make it so we get green/blue paint on our balls

Beautiful course.

Great layout tough Dye course. Short enough though can play from the tips if you’re a longer hitter and not need driver every hole. Was a little patchy in areas on the fairway. Definitely need to go back again.

worth the extra effort to get there

Oak Marsh to me is amazing. The setting is special, a combination of old oak trees as well as marsh views creates a relaxed vibe, that regardless of how I play, I enjoy the experience. I found the course staff great, including a great starter, Dennis. Conditions were very good. Layout is fun and scenic, especially holes 9, 16,17,18. I drive more than an hour to play here, it's well worth the effort!
