Pine Lakes Course

In 2002, Clyde Johnston renovated the original, 1968 design of Joe Lee. The newest and longest golf course on Jekyll Island wanders through ocean forests and migratory bird habitat.  The Johnston renovation focused on maintaining the rich environment ever present at the club.  Do not be alarmed at any wildlife observing your golf. Deer grazing beside tee boxes and ospreys high above, practice appropriate golf etiquette at all times.

The Westin Jekyll Island invites you to celebrate the beauty of the Georgia coast at their oceanfront resort. They offer travelers a spectacular location, vibrant amenities and spacious, thoughtfully appointed accommodations.  You'll be able to settle into a beachfront retreat and experience total tranquility in their modern guestrooms, which feature details like our famous Westin Heavenly Bed® and Heavenly Bath®. Spend sunny days exploring Jekyll Island's breathtaking beaches, hitting the greens at one of the island's golf courses or enjoying a wide assortment of nature-friendly activities. The resort is located in the quaint Jekyll Village which offers several restaurants and and shops that are all just a few steps from the hotel.

Our members will be in Ocean View rooms that provide fresh air and spectacular panoramic Atlantic Ocean views with its own private, furnished balcony. Sandy earth tones and clean lines help create a soothing environment for work or rest. Relax in a sitting area and stay connected with the latest technology, from a 42-inch HTDV to an iHome docking station. For those who need to work, a glass-topped desk, ergonomic leather chair, and complimentary High-Speed Internet Access help you keep up with deadlines, while a coffee maker with Starbucks® coffee and a smart mini-fridge provides refreshment. The spa-like Heavenly Bath helps stimulate circulation with its rainforest shower head and handheld wand. Double rooms offer a combination shower and bathtub, while rooms with a king-size bed feature a glass-enclosed, walk-in shower.

Indian Mound Course

 The Indian Mound course was also designed by Joe Lee in 1975.  The 18 holes wind through some of the island's most pristine woodlands.  Lee named the course Indian Mound, after the large heaps of oyster shells left by aboriginal tribes hundreds of years ago. Like Jekyll Island's other golf courses, Indian Mound is untouched by residential or commercial development.  Amateur golfers will appreciate the wide open holes.  Swing away!

Tentative Itinerary:

The Landmark Historic Trolley Tour
The Jekyll Island Club members created an exclusive gilded era island retreat for family and friends on this barrier island. Those empire builders shaped our nation’s future, now step into their past. This guided trolley tour of the entire 240-acre historic district includes entry into one cottage and provides access to Mosaic Gallery, Moss Cottage, and Faith Chapel at your leisure. The tour departs from Mosaic and lasts approximately 90 minutes. Originates in the Mosaic Building located at 100 Stable Rd., Jekyll Island, GA 31527.  Phone 912.635.4036

While our SFGA itinerary of golf will occupy each day of the trip, those with interest in Jekyll Island’s historical value may opt to extend their trip for an extra night to allow time to take in the sights of the Jekyll Island Historic District.

The earliest tourists on Jekyll Island were Native Americans who first began visiting to hunt and fish over 3,500 years ago. Centuries later, British colonists began their occupation and eventually the island became a prosperous plantation with multiple changes of ownership through the end of the Civil War. Once the dust had settled, a group of mega-wealthy millionaires purchased the island to establish a private winter retreat and hunting club in 1886.

Among the new owners were the likes of J.P. Morgan, Joseph Pulitzer, William K. Vanderbilt, and Marshall Field, to name just a few.  Not surprisingly, their immense wealth brought the construction of multiple dwellings that they called “cottages” but most others would call mansions.  Today, the 240-acres of historic structures that remain are known as, The Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark.  With 34 structures, in various stages of renovation, curious tourists from across the globe, ogle at the lifestyles of the privileged.  Numerous guided tours of the historic district are offered in a variety of different styles including, Horse Carriage Tours, Trolley and Tram tours, Segway tours, or simple walking tours with or without guides.  Tour times run from 30 minutes to half or full day.  Get started at the Mosaic Jekyll Island Museum to choose the tour experience that’s right for you.

Do you know where to find Georgia’s largest public golf resort featuring 63 holes of golf, pristine coastal landscapes and an abundance of Southern hospitality?  Would you like to discover the well-kept secret of a remote place with miles of sandy beaches, salt marshes teeming with wildlife and live oaks draped in Spanish moss along the ocean?  It’s not as far away as one might think.

Come to the Golden Isles on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, and Jacksonville, Florida.  Here you will find the four beautiful barrier islands of St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simon's Island and Jekyll Island. The southernmost of the four islands, Jekyll Island, is a 5,700 acre island that was purchased by a group of millionaires in 1886 for use as an exclusive, private retreat serving only to the ultra-wealthy of the day.  In those times, when William Vanderbilt, J.P Morgan, William Rockefeller and Joseph Pulitzer were wintering in the island, a sixth of the world's wealth was concentrated in one place.  Numerous winter homes, or “cottages” as they were called, still stand today in what became known as “Millionaires Village”.  Jekyll Island was purchased by the State of Georgia in 1947.

Today, the entire island is a state park that provides services and businesses for the fewer than 600 island residents and visitors alike.  The island is entirely managed by a state agency called, the Jekyll Island Authority, a self-supporting state entity responsible for the overall management and stewardship of Jekyll Island, including the history, and serenity of the Jekyll Island Golf Club. Our SFGA Members are invited to join us on a trip to the former playground of America's Wealthiest families.


Jekyll Island Golf Adventure

October 23 - 27, 2022

Oleander Course

Originally a 1910 Donald Ross design, Dick Wilson one of the most respected course architects in the game, redesigned the current Oleander Course in 1964 amid the inland lakes and pine forests.  Numerous doglegs require your attention while a steady breeze influences your ball flight from the ocean situated only 300 yards away.

Jekyll Island Biking &  Walking Trails
Bicycling and Walking have long been favorite activities on Jekyll Island. With more than 20 miles of picturesque paths and trails, biking and hiking offer a scenic way to see all of the island’s hallmark points of interest. Paths wind around sand dunes, beaches, and historic sites, while our ancient oaks offer ample shade.  The trail goes right past the Westin Resort and it offers park benches about every 5th of a mile, so if you get tired you can sit down, relax and enjoy the seaside.

As the term “barrier island” would suggest, you are in the untouched corridor between nature and civilization. There are very few man-made obstructions here. It’s rare to see any homes or businesses from the golf courses. Instead, a golfer’s focus turns to the natural beauty that invites the eyes and ears, presenting a stark contrast to the sights and sounds usually found on a golf course. The blending of conservation and environmental management at the golf club has allowed the Jekyll Island Golf Club to receive the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Certification at of all of the club’s courses for maintaining the delicate balance between nature and humankind.  Worldwide, only 3 other resorts hold this honor while having more holes.  Jekyll Island Golf Club has a full driving range, practice putting green and chipping area as well McCormick’s Grill, a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch with a full bar.
