Colson Hillier
Colson Hillier, new director of marketing at Amelia River Golf Club

Is there anyone on Amelia Island who does not know Colson Hillier? If you do not know Colson that you’re obviously not an involved member of this island community and if you’ve never heard of Colson Hillier and his charming wife Pat…well, then I guess you have been hiding somewhere in the dungeons of Fort Clinch for the past 10 years or so.

Ever since we opened the doors of SearchAmelia about three and a half years ago, Colson and our roads have crossed on many occasions, mostly because he was until recently the face of the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce. Whether it’s the Blues or Jazz Festival, a Chamber event, the Concours d’Elégance or next weekend’s International Pétanque America Tournament (he is a tournament player) in Fernandina Beach, you will find Colson there. If there are volunteers needed for a charity or festival, Colson will be there. He is the epitome of networking for the benefit of all.

It is often said that if you really want something done, you need to find someone who is already busy. And that someone would be Colson. So it came as no surprise to us last week, to learn that  George Sheffield, the new Owner of Amelia River Golf Club recently appointed Colson Hillier as his new Director of Marketing at the Club, responsible for individual and corporate memberships and in charge of working with local businesses and non-profits.

The Amelia River Golf Club, built in 2000, features a Tom Jackson designed golf course and offers a full-service facility with clubhouse, pro shop, practice areas, locker rooms, dining facilities with full bar and is open to the public for lunch.
We are happy to add this exciting venue for golf outings/weddings and meetings to our list of places to frequent, especially now that Colson is a member of the team.

As an introduction special for a limited time only The Amelia River Golf Club has individual & corporate memberships available with no initiation fees.
