Jekyll Island has been a heralded golf destination since 1898, when members of the Jekyll Island Club created the Island’s first golf course. In the decades that have followed, Jekyll Island has maintained its reputation as one of the premiere golfing destinations in the nation, attracting acclaimed golf course designers such as Walter Travis and Joe Lee, among others.

The challenges of Jekyll’s 63 holes on four courses are matched by the sheer beauty of the location, set in a coastal environment of warm breezes and sunshine. Using the Island’s natural landscape as inspirations for creating classic course designs alongside spectacular scenery, the Island’s four golf courses provide users not only a challenging game, but also a striking setting for play.

You bring the clubs. We’ll bring the game.
