Jekyll Island

Sixty-three holes. Four breathtaking courses. Georgia’s largest public golf resort – known for true Southern hospitality and legendary landscapes.

In 1898, members of the Jekyll Island Club created the island’s first golf course. Our island has been a heralded golf destination ever since, attracting such acclaimed designers as Donald Ross, Walter Travis and Joe Lee – as well as players from around the world.

Each course is a masterpiece. Imagine playing through some of Jekyll Island’s most pristine lakes, marshes and forests. There are very few man-made obstructions here. But you will have to navigate the island’s alligators, osprey and deer.

Great Dunes Course This historic 9-hole course alternates in difficulty and simplicity, creating a stimulating round on the links.

Indian Mound Course Surrounded by nature, this course is the shortest of Jekyll’s 18-hole courses, but offers plenty of challenges.

Oleander Course The most distinct of the three 18-hole courses, it is tightly designed, with ocean breezes and short grasses.

Pine Lakes Course One of the only courses in the nation that provides even playing ground for both adults and younger players.

Jekyll Island

#WildlifeWednesday: The Atlantic Croaker ranges from south Florida to Massachusetts and in the Gulf of Mexico. Young fish are found in estuaries, usually over mud or sandy bottoms; older fish (2 to 3 years) inhabit deep offshore waters during the winter months and move into bays and estuaries during the spring, summer and fall.
Their "croaking" sounds are used for courting by the male fish but both male and female have that capability; females and young use sound as a fright response.
Have you caught one of these before?

Have caught many.

Do they croak when you put a huge hook through their mouths?

My grandkids love surf fishing for them with shrimp. They are plentiful around the Jekyll beaches in August!

Yes it sounds like a toad my first time i fished the brige in pincsacola bay long ago

#HistoricalHighlight: Did you know, the Jekyll Island Club had its very own pair of devoted lovebirds?

The Struthers, Savannah and William, were known to always be seen on the island together. The pair were childhood friends and spent the rest of their days deeply in love. You can still see their vacation home called Moss cottage on Jekyll Island today.

Stephen Mihopulos fun fact. We should go to historic side!

They’re all beautiful, but this one is my favorite!

Does anyone else remember a haunted house being done in Moss cottage or was that a different one?

Is it open to the public?

#WildlifeWednesday: The Lettered Olive is abundant from North Carolina to Florida, Texas, and Brazil. It lives just below the surface with only its siphon extended above the sand. Have you seen one of these before? ...

Been fortunate enough to have seen hundreds in a day!

We found two empty shells a few years back ❤️

Yes!

Yes, I remember these as particularly more abundant, along with Moon Snails (Shark’s Eyes) and Sand Dollars on Jekyll Island in particular.

Is this one? I took it @ Jekyll Island a few years ago...
