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 Devil's Walking Stick tree, capable of reaching heights up to 30 feet, can be found growing in disturbed areas and along forest edges throughout a large swath of eastern North America, including Jekyll Island. When young, it is a rather spiny looking specimen. These are not true spines, but rather prickles, which arise from extensions of the cortex or epidermis. A tree in full bloom comes alive with bees and butterflies alike. Flowers soon give way to clusters of berries, which are a favorite food among birds. ... See MoreSee Less
