Golf Course Information
In 1926 "Old Man" Walter Travis, the leading golf course architect of the time, was summoned by Mr. Rockefeller and the wealthy members of the Jekyll Island Club to create the "Best course money could buy". His vision did not disappoint and he had the club members golfing along Georgia's Coastal beach. Swept with oats, Great Dune's unique coastal terrain meanders through a natural sand barrier of the coastal dune system. Still mostly in its original condition, this 9-hole course highlights the alternating simplicity and difficulty that only the "Old Man" could accomplish and is a direct ancestor of all modern "American Ocean Links" courses.
