There are three 18-hole courses available at Jekyll Island Golf Club, making it the largest public golf facility in Georgia. The Oleander Course is the club's original layout and still remains the most difficult. It is the local favorite of the three courses as well. Don't be fooled by its seemingly modest yardage, there are plenty of challenges in store. The course features tight-, tree-lined fairways and an abundance of water in play throughout. The layout doesn't seem too tough from the fairways but you'll find keeping your ball in the short grass to be no easy feat and the ability to shape shots will definitely come in handy. The Oleander's 12th hole is the longest and one of the trickiest. This par 4 is completely exposed to blustery winds coming off the ocean and there is also quite a bit of water with which to contend.

    Of the three tracks at Jekyll stay away from Oleander. The tee boxes are in need of attention, the fairways are always wet (damp at best) and there is not a smooth roll on any green. Now that being said Indian Mound and Pine Lake are two gems with Pine Lake being crown jewel. As always the staff is top notch in every way.
    When my group goes back to Jekyll we will avoid Oleander.

    We have held our annual tournament on Jekyll Island for over a decade. On more than one occasion the week long tournament has been decided on the 18th green. Oleander will find your weak spots. If you want to score, play her in the morning because when the afternoon winds are up this course is tough! Down side is that due to it's elevation it is often closed due to flooding following a heavy rain and some of the tee boxes are in need of TLC. Another upside is the entire staff at the Jekyll Island Golf Resort, pure class.
