Enjoy a round of golf at one Jekyll Island’s four incredible courses. The Great Dunes 9-hole course alternates in difficulty and simplicity, creating a stimulating round on the links. The Indian Mound Course is surrounded by nature, this course is the shortest of Jekyll’s 18-hole courses, but offers plenty of challenges. The Oleander is the island’s most distinct of the three 18-hole courses, it is tightly designed, with ocean breezes and short grasses. The Pine Lakes course is one of the only courses in the nation that provides even playing ground for both adults and younger players.
