Winding along lagoons, dunes and featuring views of the Atlantic, Ocean Links boasts five seaside golf holes. Narrow fairways and prevailing sea winds provide exhilarating views while increasing difficulty, stretching the 6,300-yard course play longer. At par 70, the 18-hole oceanfront course challenges golfers at all levels. Recently named the No. 1 Florida course for women golfers, Ocean Links was ranked in Golf Digest’s “Top 50 Courses for Women,” June 2011.

Winding along a coastal Atlantic dune ridge, Ocean Link's #4, #5, #6, #15 and #16 provide golfers with five oceanfront golf holes. The fairways and greens are parallel to the beaches of Amelia Island and meander through a unique coastal maritime hammock. Named by Golf for Women as one of the "50 Best Courses for Women", this close proximity to the ocean and the ever changing sea breeze provide the golfer with exhilarating views and intriguing play.
Ocean Links has 10 holes that feature lagoons and marsh wetlands in addition to concluding with a par three whose green is strategically placed in the waters of Red Maple Lake. The course winds through six miles of the natural sand dunes and seaside terrain that make Amelia Island so special. It can be said that this is as much a nature tour as it is a round of golf. The course yardage of 6,300 yards is somewhat deceiving since small greens, narrow fairways and prevailing winds make the course play much longer. At par 70, this 18 hole combination provides a challenge to golfers of all levels.
