He is. Went to high school at Bartram Trail.

Wife’s work will have me in Duuuval the night of the 12th thru the 15th. Definitely trying to play a round at Jax beach on the 13th while im down there. Anyone interested in linking up?

I went ahead and booked a foursome for 11:39 on Friday the 13th (freddy krueger music plays). Ill cancel if I can’t fill it.

Looking for another this afternoon at 1:15 at Jax Beach - anyone want to join?

After management at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation resort sneakily demolished the Bobby Weed x Pete Dye Ocean Links course, drawing the ire of equity members and a judge, a compromise was struck and a new 10-hole Little Sandy Short Course has opened in its place.

Little Sandy features 10 holes nestled around Red Maple Lake, ranging from 70 to 125 yards, and an 18-hole putting green. Playing through a picturesque lowland oak marsh habitat, Omni Amelia Island Resort’s new short course provides a traditional, yet fun-focused golf experience for all ages and abilities.

The course offers an idyllic setting as nearly all holes are played along Red Maple Lake’s water that contrast sandy native grass areas, dunes, and diverse wildlife habitat.

The Beau Welling design for Little Sandy was intentional to create an environment that promotes camaraderie and community. Playability and a fun atmosphere are emphasized to cater to families and those new to the game, but the course also offers strategic tests of golf and bold and contoured greens that will challenge more experienced golfers. One notable feature is the 10th hole that plays to an island green presenting a dramatic close to the round, even featuring a “hole-in-one” pin.

Little Sandy is open exclusively to registered Omni resort guests and members of The Amelia Island Club.

This is a walking course (no golf carts). Walk-ins only, no reservations.

Pricing
$50 per round (Adults)
$35 per round (Juniors 17 years of age or younger)
$15 Sunday bag rental

Hours of Operation
8 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Saw this in the JAGA newsletter:

Concert Golf Partners, a Lake Mary company, will take over management at Marsh Landing this summer. Details are still being worked out. Concert also manages the Golf Club of Amelia as well as six other clubs in Florida.

From what I understand, Concert Golf Partners buys private clubs. It’s not a third-party management company.

If the deal goes through, I’m curious to see how that affects things here.

maybe they’ll change that awful range/concrete mats. One can only hope!

Weather is turning for the worst today so might get rained out at Jax Beach. Anyone got a game going tomorrow they need a fourth on? Shoot me a DM if so!

You might be able to sneak it in - looks ok at the beach for the next few hours.

If your really needing to hit a few balls go to coastal indoor golf around the corner from Jax Beach - great indoor sim set up.

And if all that fails, forget golf, go to Sun Deli - order a sandwich and ask what soups are available today. Don’t forget a side of their chipotle ranch sauce!
