Amelia River Golf Club
4477 Buccaneer Trail
Amelia Island, FL 32034, United States

Royal Amelia is renowned as one of the best-conditioned courses in the area with incredibly smooth TifEagle greens, sculpted around a forest of majestic live oaks, sabal palms, pines and wax myrtles. This par 72 track, designed by Tom Jackson, which plays to a yardage of 6,823 from the back tees, is always in pristine shape with well-manicured rolling fairways, smooth bunkers and greens that challenge all skill levels. This course is unique in character and is a treat to play.

Royal Amelia consists of 18-holes of challenging golf where ball control and accuracy are keys to a great game. The first hole at Royal Amelia is located along the border of the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport, as are #5 and #13. These fairways are wide and open giving the golfer a sense of a traditional Scottish links course. Enjoy these holes while you can because the rest contain individual and groups of trees that, while adding beauty to the course, require cautious ball placement.

The 6th hole is a good example of the course’s challenges. The landing area off the tee is very wide, however, an uphill fairway requires a blind shot. At the top of this hill, a group of trees on the left calls for a high and long shot to reach the green. To add to the challenge there are four bunkers along the front and left of the green.

Large greens and rolling fairways are a trademark of Royal Amelia. The par five 13th hole is remarkable for its tranquil beauty. The par four 14th hole presents the more skilled golfer with a tantalizing risk-reward proposition; there is water all the way from the tee box to the green requiring either a long shot to the green or a conservative shot to the right on the open fairway and then there are three bunkers protecting the green. Our signature 17th hole is a par three surrounded by water demanding an accurate shot to the island green. The final hole ends at the edge of the Amelia River and its expansive tidal marsh.

We played during the time that the Okeefenokee Swamp was on fire, and the smoke blowing into the area made for a less than stellar weather day. The course has a great layout, and provides a very scenic view of this great coastal area.
