In 1926 the "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 purchase". His vision did not disappoint and had the club members golfing along Coastal Georgia's beach, swept with oats, natural sand barrier of the coastal dune system and the unique coastal terrain. Still in its original condition, this 9-hole golf course highlights the alternating simplicity and difficulty that only the "Old Man" could accomplish and a direct descendent of all modern American Ocean Links courses. Jekyll Island, Georgia's largest public golf resort, offers 63 holes of golf on the historic Great Dunes 9-hole course, as well as on three 18-hole courses - Oleander, Pine Lakes, and Indian Mound.
