Comments In 1926 "Old Man" Walter Travis, the leading golf course architect of the time (and winner of the 1919 US Open), 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 and designed BEFORE cars or carts were invented, the Great Dunes golf course highlights the alternating simplicity and difficulty that only the "Old Man" could accomplish - a direct descendent of all modern American Ocean Links courses. Don't be surprised by the smallness of the greens, for that is a remnant of the old style of golf, and gives real meaning to having a good "up and down" game. Bring your persimmon woods and hickory shafts and see how you match up to the "Old Man."
