ok course

1 hour to course from home. while a OK course, nothing special. Staff friendly and accommodating.
Rain delay. Restaurant closed. 15th hole closed, 4 par 3's on back side (as I recall).
While we enjoyed playing somewhere different, frankly, it was not worth the drive, many courses in my area of same quality.
If in the area and looking for a reasonable course to play, I would recommend. We did like the lay out.

Nice little public course.

Nice course when it’s dry. If it has been raining forget about it, the course does not drain well. Also, the greens are a bit sketchy in some spots but all in all a good value for the money. I enjoyed My round and the staff was very friendly. Both times I wad there The cafe was closed and no on course beverage cart is provided so bring your own.

Poor Greens and Temporary Holes.

Was told the greens were punched 2 weeks earlier, which wasn't a problem. However they were bare in spots and very shaggy making them extremely slow. Would recommend playing elsewhere until they get the greens in shape.

A great challenge

This course is open enough for the average golfer. There are many elevated greens, most protected by either sand or water. It is challenging but fun.

Best Bang for the Buck

The prudent gents at this course actually demonstrate diligence in maintaining and enjoyable atmosphere, via the condition of this course. Now, If I could get my focus and muscle memory trained to my liking, I'd be getting more pars and a few more birdies. :D

Good track needs some T L C

I loved this course. Decisions need to be made for the good of golf and it's clientele. Putting the restoration on the long finger never works. Needs a lot of tender loving care to bring it back to where it was. Yours and golf Tom

NIce course, Rough Greens

The greens were aerated a few weeks ago. Greens are still tough to play.
Maybe better in a few weeks.

Saint Johns Golf Course

We’ve played this course many times. It’s a wonderful layout but conditions are unsatisfactory. The tees and fairways are below average but the greens are atrocious. Too bad. The course could be so much better.

Rough day at the office

Just aerated, but greens were still smooth and true. Best course for the money in the area. Going to sadden me when they have to close for about 8 months for a makeover, then probably double the price.

This course has a nice layout

Enough trouble without being overwhelming. They had just aerated the course, so conditions were not ideal, but I would definitely recommend this course.

This course is usually very well maintained.

Unfortunately, TODAY WAS ONE OF THOSE MAINTENANCE DAYS and the entire course was aerated before the course opened at 1 PM. Had I known that, I would have waited two weeks before booking my first round at St. John's.
It will be beautiful in a few weeks.

The course is in rough shape

Very little grass on a lot of the greens. Overall the course looks very worn out.

Nice course a little unsettled right now

Played this course on numerous occasions and it’s always fun. Course overall is nice but greens always seem really slow and hairy. Miss the restaurant as food was really good. Tommy has helped my game when needed. Really like this course

Greens, Greens, Greens

Great layout. Many interesting holes. Fairways are terrific for the most part. This could be a home run but the greens are not even average. Many dead ,brown, bare areas. If they ever decide to spend money on the greens and get a bar in the clubhouse, this place will be 5 star

Needs work

Course could really use some TLC. Greens are really bumpy and very slow as usual but even slower. The boxes are pretty poor. No food or beverage cart or cafe. Rype up and left a few weeks ago. Hopefully it gets in better condition soon cause I love the track!
