Rating 74.8
Type Semi-Private
Hammock Creek Golf Club is the first golf course in Florida designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and Jack II. The course, which has hosted several events on the Golden Bear Tour, is said to be a formidable test from the championship tees for even the most skilled players. The challenges, though they are subtle and give a seemingly spacious appearance to the course, are a force to be reckoned with. The layout features multi-tiered greens that play fast and rolling fairways that have generous landing area, but they can be misleading. Mature pine forests and native wetlands also come into play throughout. The design incorporates several interesting risk-reward opportunities and there are also five sets of tees to make it approachable to a range of skill levels.

First timer

I was impressed by the friendliness of staff. We only played the front nine due to heat and playing partner got dizzy. The course provided rain checks without any hesitation

I will definitely go back.

Nice course and staff

For a day with rain on again/off again it was a fun round of golf. Staff was friendly and helpful. The course was in very good condition. The course is straight forward with no tricks or hidden hazards. It is a nice course to play.

Dissappointed in this visit

I will start with an overall Hammock Creek should be a go to course for anyone in the area. Usually great experiences with quality conditions and friendly staff.

However, I was Very disappointed in my last visit to an otherwise great course in the area. Tee boxes were a mess. Greens were decent.

Didn’t know rain checks were not available after 3pm. Maybe my fault for not reading if signs were available. Storms rolled in after we played 6 holes. Went to clubhouse for rain check and was told no rain checks after 3.

Not happy about level of customer service or the shape of the course at the time.

Plenty of options to play great courses off season so it will be awhile before I venture back.
