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

We would greatly appreciate the public’s help in finding photos showing the rock revetment — also known as the Johnson Rocks — under construction (or newly built) northward from Captain Wylly Road through Villas By The Sea / Driftwood Beach / Old North Picnic Area. Our archival research indicates this work was carried out in two phases working northward from Captain Wylly to Tallu Fish Lane in 1967, and extending northward through Villas by the Sea in 1975. If you have photos, please share! ...

Kit Millay Fullenlove Barry?

If you have checked with the people who operate the Environmental Education program to the JI 4-H Center, do so. They have a lot of really old photographs of the island.

Wasn't the Johnson Rocks put down because of a Hurricane that came threw and caused damage ?

The infamous "Johnson" rocks!

Oh those were the days , I wish I could have been there back then .its getting way too busy for me ! Still one of my favourite places .

I remember climbing on those as a kid.

Was probaly the reason for the decline in the turtle population all of a sudden.

Since I can't recognize ANYTHING now at Jekyll Island, I'll just have to decline. You've completely destroyed the island that it was.

Johnson rocks were placed up and down the east coast

Love the people that come to a peaceful post and crap on it.

I think we should limit this discussion to Ben’s intent; looking for photos...........

#HistoricalHighlight: In 1910, Karl Keffer, the professional golf champion of Canada, was hired as a golf pro for the Jekyll Island Club. In 1913, he oversaw an expansion of the island’s Donald Ross Course, resulting in a golf house and new holes overlooking the ocean. In 1924, Keffer’s work culminated in the opening of a new 18-hole course. Celebrations consisted of a week of golf and shooting. ...

#WildlifeWednesday: THINK FAST! The Eastern Six-Lined Racerunner (Aspidocelis sexlineata sexlineata) is running by! This is a common, yet elusive species that is well distributed throughout the Southeastern region while holding some native territory in Illinois and Indiana. They can range from 6-10.5 inches in length (head-tail) and have some incredbile coloration on their scales like brown, white, black, yellow, bright green, and pale gray!

To differentiate between the sexes males hold a coloration of blue underneath their bodies and juveniles have a bright blue tail. Optimal habitat consists of open areas with sand or loose soil, fields, grasslands, sand dunes, and floodplains. Racerunners are incredibly fast animals making them the most difficult lizards to capture! Do you think you could catch one?

Jason Rose Bailey could catch one!

Beautiful critter ♥️

My cat Maggie caught one on our screen porch. One day she caught a lime green lizard that was at least as big around as my thumb and about 6 inches long. I had not seen one of those before.
