Golf Master Plan Report
In 2019, the Jekyll Island Authority issued a Golf Course Master Plan Request for Proposal (RFP 356). The overall objective was to create a Golf Course Master Plan that would provide direction to ensure the future success of golf on Jekyll Island. The plan was developed while taking into account a number of factors including current course conditions, modern-day trends, operational budgets, economic performance, conservation, recreation, educational opportunities, NGF assessment, as well as programs currently in place specific to Jekyll Island. The plan provides overall direction which allows Jekyll Island to identify potential options that are present in order for the Jekyll Island Golf Club to become financially sustainable. The final report of the plan in its entirety is available below.
