Beachside Resorts on Florida’s First Coast of Golf

When you visit one -- or more -- of our legendary golf courses, don’t forget to spend some time on our warm sands. Staying at a beachside resort or hotel offers guests the added bonus of getting a room with an ocean view. Best of all, if you’re traveling with guests who prefer surf to turf, they are mere steps away from the sand.

For your convenience we have organized the properties by regions in Northeast Florida.  Let’s look at some options we have waiting for you! 

Amelia Island

Omni Amelia Island Resort

 

By just looking at the photos, it’s easy to imagine yourself spending time at the Omni Resort Amelia Island’s ocean facing pools after an exciting day spent on their private courses. They offer the Oak Marsh Course designed by Pete Dye, and the Long Point Course laid out by Tom Fazio. Junior golf coaching classes, onsite spa, a selection of 10 gourmet culinary venues, tennis courts, and beach rentals complement your escape to Amelia Island.

These Amelia Island properties are only minutes away from all the dining, shops, and attractions of Amelia Island. Of course if you opt to spend most of your time on the beach or at the pool that’s up to you! The properties are under the same ownership and share some amenities and features. The Courtyard Amelia and SpringHill Suites are adjacent and connected properties located only one block from the beach across from Fort Clinch State Park. Guests have access to amenities at both resorts such as meeting and event space, a pool and pool deck, full bars, and some terrific dining options such as the Tides Pool Bar and Grill.

With a variety of accommodation options such as ground floor, pool view, and oceanfront suites as well as more modestly-sized studio units you should be able to find ideal lodging. As this is a smaller, beachfront property, make sure to book in advance. Of course, we can’t forget the golf!
