On the northernmost barrier island in Florida, the state's greenest resort is just 29 miles from Jacksonville International Airport. This resort was selected by "GOLF Magazine" to its 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts." The fairways and greens of Amelia's fifty-four holes of golf have been carefully placed beneath an umbrella of towering oaks. There are three eighteen hole courses, known as the Oakmarsh, the Long Point and the Ocean Links. These courses are bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. The Oakmarsh Course is the longest of the three designs. There are numerous fairway and greenside bunkers that make shot accuracy essential. Oakmarsh is the most demanding course at Amelia Links. Hole #8, a 342-yard, par 4, is a narrow hole that was designed to force the golfer to play across two tidal creeks before reaching its elevated green. The Ocean Links Course has three holes that Pete Dye built atop mammoth dunes, which provide incredible ocean views. It also has dense underbrush that is subtly treacherous. Tom Fazio's Long Point Course has a combination of ocean, marsh, woods, and water hazards coming into play throughout its design. The front nine is shorter and tighter than the back nine, so getting off to a good start is very important while playing here. The signature hole is #11, a 540-yard, par 5, featuring a deep green with numerous narrow bunkers. It is located on a dramatic setting alongside Nassau Sound. Long Point is also the home for the Ron Philo Golf School, which offers various teaching programs consisting of two to four days of training instruction.
