Unspoiled, uncrowded and undiscovered, Osprey Cove offers a tremendous value in private club community living.
“The community’s best features are the natural ones–water, marsh and natural views surrounding, and throughout, the community,” says Paul Larner, a principal in Bald Eagle Partners, the owner of Osprey Cove.
Stretching across 1,059 acres of lush coastal Georgia terrain, Osprey Cove is only a few miles from unspoiled sandy beaches and is just minutes from Jacksonville, Amelia Island and historic St. Marys. Famed Cumberland Island is just a ferry ride away.
Shopping, dining and the many varied opportunities of northeast Florida give Osprey Cove residents quick access to shops, restaurants and a major international airport.
The River Club
The community’s 18-hole Mark McCumber golf course is a nationally ranked gem. The River Club is the place to be for many of the residents and complete access is available through a Social Membership (golf can be added separately).
Whether you want to play tennis on the Har-Tru clay courts, exercise in the state-of-the-art fitness center, relax at the pool (open year-round), take in a fitness class such as Zumba or Yoga, or attend one of the many interest-club meetings, such as the Garden Club or Bridge Club, you’ll find plenty of fun things today. And the social calendar is always filled with events and happenings.
Great Dining at Osprey Cove
Great food is an important part of life at Osprey Cove. Whether it’s a casual poolside lunch or fine dining, meals are prepared fresh daily in-house, using recipes that vary based on the season and local ingredients. Two restaurants, the Clubhouse’s Grill Room and River Club’s Tiki Hut provide the ideal venue for celebratory occasions–a wedding, a milestone birthday or just dining out.
The course is embraced by marshes & tidal inlets.
Championship Golf by Mark McCumber
The year-round Osprey Cove course is set against a backdrop of sweeping marshes, tidal inlets and nature conservation areas. At every turn, the breathtaking panorama of the Lowcountry envelops you. The newly renovated clubhouse offers sweeping views of the course and the marsh beyond.
Designed by Mark McCumber & Associates, the layout is a testament to McCumber’s commitment to establishing a course that is defined by the natural characteristics of the land and river.
Raves from Golf Digest
Osprey Cove has earned numerous accolades and been listed among Golfweek’s “Top 5 in Georgia” and Golf and Travel’s “Top 100 Modern Courses.” Golf Digest rated the course five stars and designated it: “A gem…must play if you’re within 100 miles.”
With social membership, you will enjoy tennis, fine dining, fitness facilities and classes, access to the private boat dock, RV/boat storage and clubs to satisfy every interest. Add a golf membership and a nationally-acclaimed course is at your disposal.
Enjoy privacy with top amenities nearby.
Life on the Water
Water is integral to life at Osprey Cove. With the St. Marys River running through the spectacular marshes that cozy up to the community, and the ocean within easy reach.
Members love kayaking the river, meandering down the boardwalk along the river’s edge, taking a sunset cruise, grabbing a drink with friends at the marshfront Tiki Hut, or fishing for tarpon, Spanish and king mackerel, cobia and reds.
Club members have two easy means of access to the Intracoastal Waterway–they can venture out from their home via their own private dock or by way of the community’s dock.
Just minutes away is the Cumberland Island National Seashore, the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia. Here you’ll find 18 miles of white-sand beaches perfect for beachcombing. You’ll also catch a glimpse of wild horses, dolphins, sea turtles, shore birds and much more. And, of course, for those who choose a marsh or riverfront home or homesite, the joys of life on the water are never-ending.
