west nine ok. south just goofy
west nine pretty playable with rough 2 to 21/2 inches. penal but you could find it. greens decent. mostly smooth with a few bumpy spots. fairways parched and thin. south nine goofy with rough 4 to 12 inches (i measured a couple spots). fairways ample but miss by a yard and tee a provisional. you won't find 1st ball. i was in middle of several fairways (and left side of one tee box) less than 160 to hole with no shot. trees blocking what looked like a fine tee shot from tee. left after 5 holes and 4 lost balls. just wasn't fun to try to hit from the fairway over trees to blocked greens. dye or hills would be proud.
Course is in very rough shape. Weeds all over the greens, and a lot of tee boxes were mostly sand.
north and west are pretty easy and forgiving. fairways are parched & thin. rough is 3 or more inches and inconsistant thickness. greens were just ok. some smooth some a bit bumpy. south nine is just goofy. hills or dye would be proud. rough was 4 to 12 inches. i lost four balls in four holes and quit. 3 just off the fairway. found a 5th ball when i stepped on it. laid up to 155 on 2nd hole. middle of fairway. had no shot around a more than 90 degree dogleg. hit a wedge over trees at corner but never found the ball in rough i measured at 12 inches. can't recommend it.
South course has a very interesting layout but fairways and approaches were in poor shape. Sad. West Course has fairways in much better condition; layout is longer, wide open and a bit uninspired. Greens on both 9s may be the worse I have ever played. They were bumpy and sparse, as if they had been plugged and not recovered. Very few golfers on course, so pace of play was great.
Greens were in very good shape but fairway rough was just that (rough). Some grass had not been cut in a good while. Driving range was closed due to recent rains. No cart service offered during the weekend. Gas powered carts were very slow.The west course is open and fairly easy to play. The south course has much tighter fairways but had shade which was nice for the 90+ degree day.
Course was in horrible shape. Needs senificate work and money
Fernandina golf club
The course was in very bad condition and greens were terrible. Would not play again without going to look at first
This was a great course fir us. Will definitely go back
Good value for the $. Played South 9 and West 9. Fairways good greens good. No rough to speak of. Not resort course but not priced as one. Staff was friendly. Nice enough I went back and played again same price as golf now. I'll go back.
We had a great time playing this course. West was long but straight. North was a bit shorter but with many doglegs. I played off the white tees and had a challenge reaching the greens in regulation. Great course for the price!
Tolerated not welcomed
I have played a lot courses with Golfnow. Many are not happy with the discounts they need to give to participate in this program but generally do a good job accommodating their customers. Here they treat you like the evil stepchild in Cinderella. This course is convenient if staying on Amelia Island but that is about all I can say about it.
We traveled from St. Augustine to go to this club we had a child with us 6 years old who we are teaching to play. When we got to the club they were not nice at the desk. They had overbooked TeeTimes and looking for an excuse to not occomodate us. We booked on golf Now and they were not friendly with that, as we were not one of their locals. Definitely not kid friendly. We will not go back to that course. A few minutes away in Jacksonville was a nice course . They were accommodating with last minute players, and with kids. The course was great.
nice senior course
open fairway, moderately long, green fairway moderately open rough on hard soil. nice greens
Great value, friendly people. Course was in OK shape, considering it was the end of January.
A fun muni
Fun and fast- a great muni course not complicated. Little water, more bunkers. Highly recommend if you visit Amelia Island.
Fun to play this early in the year. This muni course is ok for an early round. Long par 5s. Greens were ragged but that is to be expected. Fairways were fine. Good value.
Bang for your buck
This course had challenging but fair holes. Was well maintained with very friendly staff.
Negatives..very flat and some repetitive holes.
Could use some "color" around tee boxes.
Otherwise, very good course for the money.
Price was reasonable on GolfNow. Course was not maintained, for what part is concrete it has pot holes on the cart path and much of the path is not paved. Very bumpy ride throughout
Bad time at Fernandina Beach GC
Mike the manager was rude checking us in. He made us wait 25 minutes when there was hardly anyone else on the course too check us out for the twilight rate. His interaction with the public was very poor.
We played 9 holes and no one told us we were not able to play the second 9 under their policy. Mike proceeded to race onto the course and embarrass me by telling us we could not play any additional holes.
Course in good shape though, Mike ruined it for us. Unfortunately Fernandina Beach GC will not be at the top of my list to revisit. Their management needs to know.
