Terms & Conditions

Jekyll Island Golf Courses

Pack your golf clubs when you retreat to The Westin Jekyll Island and play one of three 18-hole golf courses or the 9-hole Great Dunes course. The Jekyll Island Golf Club is located just 1.2 miles from the Westin or a short 3 minute drive, and available via a complimentary hotel shuttle. The absence of any homes or development on Jekyll Island's courses offers a unique experience for today's golfer.

Immerse yourself in nature, and focus on every shot with only an occasional disruption from deer, alligator, osprey or other wildlife.


Indian Mound

Indian Mound is the shortest of the 18-hole trio at 6,469 from the back tees, but is comparable length-wise from the next set at 6,221. The par 5s are more difficult than the modest yardage might suggest and only one of the par 3s can be considered a soft touch, with the par 4s offering a number of scoring opportunities to those able to take advantage of short shots into the greens.

Westin Jekyll Island | Pine Lakes

Pine Lakes

Pine Lakes is quite similar to the Indian Mound course since they sit side by side. Due to the fact that golf course architect Joe Lee had a hand in both layouts, sand will be a serious factor. Lee mixes up his green side bunker pattern on both designs increasing the need for accurate approach shots. Fairway bunkers are generally a modest concern off the tee, with Clyde Johnston’s renovations making them more in play for the longer hitters.

Part of Johnston’s renovations involved installing several kid-friendly tees, making it a great course for families to play together.

Oleander

Oleander is the oldest of the three courses and generally considered the most difficult. Designed by Dick Wilson, one of golf’s most respected architects, Oleander has served as a host course several times for the Georgia Open. With its tight tree-lined fairways and the abundance of water in play, Oleander is the testiest of the three layouts.

Westin Jekyll Island | Great Dunes

Great Dunes

A stop in at the Great Dunes nine is not something to be missed. The course features several holes with some of the smallest greens you will ever encounter. It contains one of the most unique par 5s in existence, and one of the most difficult par 3s without water you’ll ever play. Great Dunes represents what is left of Jekyll’s original layout from over 100 years ago, providing a treasured experience and glimpse into a bygone era.
