If you’re familiar with Pete Dye, you probably know that his designs are tough. Think TPC Sawgrass. The same can be said for the Oak Marsh Course at Amelia Plantation. Opened in 1972, the Oak Marsh Course is classic southern bayou golf.
You don’t need to be a big hitter to play this golf course as it isn’t overly long. Instead, precision both off the tee and into the green is the key to success.
As classic Dye design would dictate, 14 holes have penalty areas, and a number of greens are bulkhead designs featuring railroad ties.
The routing makes its way through live oak forests and along the edge of a salt marsh. Tranquility is the word that comes to mind when playing a round on this track.
