The PDCA will hold its 8th Annual Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, Ocean Links Course on Wednesday, June 28, 2017. All the proceeds from this tournament go to support the PDCA’s scholarship and research program.
Designed by Bobby Weed, the Ocean Links Course features five oceanfront golf holes (# 4, #5, #6, #15 and #16) as it winds along a coastal Atlantic dune ridge. Ocean Links has 10 holes that feature lagoons with marsh wetlands, in addition to concluding with a par 3 whose green is placed strategically in the waters of Red Maple Lake. The fairways and greens are parallel to the beach on Amelia Island and meander through a unique coastal maritime hammock. The course winds through six miles of the natural sand dunes and seaside terrain that make Amelia Island so special. It can be said that this course offers as much a nature tour as a round of golf.
Omni Amelia Island Plantation was named a “Top 121 Golf Resort in the World” by Conde Nast Traveler, and was recently selected as the home of Golf Channel’s “Big Break: Florida.” Named by Golf for Women as one of the “50 Best Courses for Women,” this close proximity to the ocean and the every-changing sea breeze provide you with exhilarating views and intriguing play. At par 70, this 18-hole combination provides a challenge to golfers of all levels; so no reason not to bring the whole family for an exciting Florida golf experience.
