About

Par 72
Length 7001
Slope 118
Rating 72.6
Type Public/Municipal
Just north of the Jacksonville Airport, Fernandina Beach Golf Club offers three 18-hole courses that are conveniently located within distance of both Jacksonville and the beach. There are three distinct nines at the club that create three different 18-hole combinations. The West/South combination is the tournament course at Fernandina Beach Golf Club. The West nine is long and there is a challenging par-5 that is one of the most difficult on the golf course. The South nine features an abundance of trees and water hazards, putting a heavier emphasis on accuracy rather than distance in scoring well. The golf course is also considered a perfect example of scenic Florida golf with native foliage and wildlife throughout.

Bumpy greens

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.

Not impressed

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.

Good deal

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.

Great course

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.

Not friendly

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.
