Amelia National’s Tom Fazio Course: Why It’s Better

Want to enjoy membership play on a Tom Fazio-designed golf course?

Follow the geese and fly south. Unless, of course, you’d like to pay the eye-popping initiation fees required by some Fazio courses in the northeast. That’ll cost you $200,000 at some New York and Maryland courses, or $210,000 at select New Jersey courses.

Wow, you say…and not in a good way.

As Florida’s Custom Home Builder, ICI Homes has the solution to your Tom Fazio golf dream. Amelia National Golf and Country Club offers privacy and luxury-home living amid the scenic beauty of Florida’s Atlantic coast, plus, with an initiation fee a mere fraction of other Fazio signature courses… couple that with a dramatically lower cost of luxury-living and it just makes sense to pack your bags.

We’ll wait while you catch your breath….

Amelia National is sited among the serene pine and palm woodlands and tidal marshes of Florida’s northeast shoreline. Five minutes east is its namesake Amelia Island, which offers pristine beaches, quaint boutiques and a lively restaurant scene in historic Fernandina Beach.

Nowhere else can you enjoy the Florida lifestyle, own a luxury home and tee up — every day — on a Tom Fazio golf course for such a smart price.

You can if you choose Amelia National. Here’s why you should make that choice.

Who is Tom Fazio? (And why you should care)

Simply, he’s one of the world’s best golf-course architects, with more than 40 years in the business. Specifically, he’s a Pennsylvania native whose company, FAZIO Design, has executed top-flight projects in 38 states and seven countries.

No living golf-course designer has more courses listed on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses and on Golfweek’s collection of America’s Best.

Why You Want to Play This: Designed by Tom Fazio®

Fazio favors a team approach toward golf-course creation. Many of his firm’s designers are FAZIO Design veterans who adore the game as much as their boss. They also respect their raw material. One of Fazio’s oft-stated mantras is that “golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments.”

This means holes that flow seamlessly into one another and use existing topography. The result usually is a golf course as individual as its surroundings. Another Fazio characteristic is a course that challenges players of all skill levels without becoming a teeth-gnashing experience. Fazio wants you to have fun on his golf courses.

It’s the 18-hole centerpiece of Amelia National Golf Club, one of Florida’s finest private golfing experiences. A French Provincial clubhouse provides casual elegance, multiple dining choices and the traditional conviviality of a 19th-hole bar and grill. Yes, there’s a sparkling pool, cut-above service and whip-out-the-camera views of the golf course and luscious landscaping. There’s also an eight-acre driving range, pro shop, practice bunker, chipping and putting greens and a resident pro to offer gentle correction.

But you want to be here to play golf, and Amelia National’s Tom Fazio golf course is one of North America’s most stunning — a salt-tinged arena very lightly sculpted into an endless challenge for duffers and pros alike, often with water birds soaring above its velvet fairways and inky ponds.

Add innumerable community amenities — luxury homes, gated entrances and such a low initiation fee...Why are you still waiting?
