Forget the tall buildings, traffic, crowds, and neon signs; and have a golf vacation at Jekyll Island Golf-Indian Mound Course. Get rid of all these urban nuisances through the course’s pristine lakes, marshes, live oaks and swaying pines. Designer Joe Lee got the course’s name after the huge oyster shell middens deposited by aboriginal tribes centuries ago prior to the settlement of the Europeans. The Indian Mound Course is a very interesting place to spend the vacation in because of its rich history.
Lee opened this course in 1970 and made few improvements on some of its features in 1975 to make it more challenging due to the golfers’ demands. One of the most notable components of the renovation project was the addition of his signature bunkers. Jekyll Island Golf-Indian Mound Course features 6,596 yards of golf from the longest tees. This par-72 course has a rating of 71.3 and a slope rating of 127 on Bermuda grass. The course assures the visitors that their golf vacations here will not be wasted because of its picturesque environment and the extreme golf spirit that it offers.
Jekyll Island Golf-Indian Mound Course is devoid of commercial and residential structures. This gives the golfers room to enjoy the wonderful flora and fauna abundantly inhabiting the outskirts of the golf course. The course is the official host of the annual US Kids Golf Jekyll Island Cup. This is proof enough that golf trips hereabouts are not only made for adults, but for the kids as well. It has nothing but pure golfing goodness.
