The par 72 layout, that opened in 2000, gives the golfer a natural low country feel as the course winds through native water oaks, palmettos and southern pines. One of the most fun and enjoyable courses in Northeast Florida and always in pristine condition! Enjoy all of the convenience and value of a community golf club without the high monthly cost and long term commitment of a private club. Simply the best golf club value on Amelia Island! « less

The Amelia Island Golf Club's course is by far the most beautiful on the island. There is privacy which other courses lack, no houses edging the playing field, and quiet, serene vistas. The course is well maintained, brought back from years of neglect by a perfectionist. Alligators can be seen almost all the time as they bask in the creeks,... More

We were in Amelia Island for an annual golf trip. We played two of the local resort courses and Amelia River. I was not expecting this course to be my favorite of the three, but it hands down was. We played 36 holes. Pace was very good. Food at the club was great. Prices were very, very reasonable. Beyond that,... More

Amelia River GC offers golfers of any level the chance to enjoy a top notch round through some challenging and some forgiving holes. Players have full control over their level of pain by selecting the proper tee, each level providing distinctly different levels of difficulty. Pace of play has always been good - except when plunked in the middle of... More

Played twice in October 2013 and enjoyed the course greatly. Pace of play good - under 3 hours 30 minutes both times. Fairways and greens in good condition with enough sets of tees to make it playable for your level. Staff excellent. Good food in the club house Despite what it says in another review there is a restroom on... More

For the money I was expecting more. We played three courses on a recent trip to Amelia Island and this was the only one without gps in the carts, which made determining yardages a little difficult. The course was in pretty good shape. Only one or 2 greens I thought needed work. There were a lot of fire ants but... More

Just played our first 18 at Amelia River Golf Club and it is really nice place. The course is in great shape with good fairways and greens that hold. We were greeted by a friendly bag / cart girls who got us set up with a cart and then cleaned our clubs after the round. The clubhouse is small but... More

Semi-private course that backed up to the River, no houses anywhere on the course and well maintained! Greens were amazing. Club house small but a nice bar and delicious food menu. Well worth the price all around.

This course is next to the small airport, and the holes that are alongside it are links style, while elsewhere others are in the midst of the native vegetation. A few holes feature water; we saw an alligator by the 17th green. The starter was very friendly and helpful. Fairways were thin, but I attribute that to winter and the... More

The layout is challenging but the maintenance of the course needs attention. The fairways are in good to very good condition and the greens are in fair to good condition. For the price its the best option on Amelia Isand.
