Jekyll Island, GA

Hey Folks,

 

If you are on your way to Florida or just looking for a great vacation spot it would be worth your while to check out Jekyll Island. There are 3 18 hole courses that play out of one clubhouse and a great little 9 hole course adjacent to the ocean. Conditions are usually good and the price is fair at $45 on weekends, packages could be less. If your better half isn't in to golf there are many options including historical tours, tennis, the beach, fishing and a spa. I've been going for years and absolutely love it!

Completely agree and add St. Simons and Sea Island to the list.

Got engaged there in the old hotel.  No golf 'cause in a full leg brace from a recent motorcycle mishap, but I remember the place fondly.  Probably should go back soon, just a two hour drive.

My wife & I used to go there quite often in the early 90's when we both played. Still have their yardage books they gave out. What a wonderful place. Seen plenty of deer on the course in the late afternoons.

We flew in from Chicago to Jacksonville the night that Augusta National was damaged. I think there were 2 hurricanes both heading inland (one from the gulf side & one from the Atlantic side).  Funniest thing about it was that we were delayed in Chicago a couple hours due to fog. Scariest flight I've every been on. It took us twice as long to drive to Jeckyll Island, but the next morning there were only small puddles from the night before. We even played golf that day without cart-path only signs.

Another not so fond memory was when we pulled into the parking lot & found a parking spot near the front that was empty. After golf, we found out why. Must have been hundreds of gulls using our rental car for a rest room. A couple car washes later & it looked new again.
