Amelia Island Plantation, with 45 holes of top-notch golf, is a golfer's retreat located just 20 miles from the cacophony of downtown Jacksonville. Designed by Mark McCumber, The Golf Club of Amelia Island is a difficult test that calls for a precise swing and strong nerve.

The course, which opened in 1987, looks considerably harder than it plays. Nowhere is that more evident than on No. 5, a water-laden par 3 that measures 160 yards.
