Destinations-Icon-smallAnother of the Golden Isles of Georgia, Jekyll Island was once a 19th-century play­ground for American aristocracy, notably the Rockefellers, Pulitzers, Morgans, and Vanderbilts. Today, visitors can enjoy the meticulously restored Victorian Jekyll Island Clubhouse and hotel that serve as the cen­terpiece for the island’s National Historic Landmark District. Guest rooms, suites, and cottages are furnished in the most appropri­ate historically rooted décor. The Club’s three restaurants are considered to be the best on the island and offer a range of fare, from casual breakfasts in the Café Solterra to elegant fine dining in the award-winning Grand Dining Room. The full-service spa al­lows you to be pampered like an aristocrat!


Grand Dunes This historic 45-hole course is an old-school Oceanside links course that affords great play all year round.

Croquet, Trail Riding, Tennis All of the classical American leisure pastimes are at your doorstep at the Jekyll Island Club.
