Just the worst!

So this place is just horrible. We went a week before and got rained out. So they gave us rain checks.... kinda. They said since only one person made the tee time they had to put all three on his account. We re scheduled and confirmed that we could use out rain checks for the tee time we requested. SEVERAL times. We show up and they wanted 50 EXTRA to play and super rude about it. We played the course it it was just garbage. Greens have large patches of grass just eaten up and bunkers were hard. Fairways were ok. I just can’t believe they wanted so much to play here. I’m local and play a lot and won’t be back!

Can’t believe their thinking!

Have been playing here for many years including post BSky era. Was tickled when Hampton group bought it and renovated it. Been playing there regularly, couple times a week, including weekend. But recently found out , to my surprise while checking in that the prices on weekend mornings have gone up almost $20 a round, they call it flex-pricing. Over $60 dollars have priced them off my list to play as well as everyone in our regular group. It’s sad that they have done this, I’m sure I’m not the only one whom have sworn off this place due to their insistence of try to make a few more $$$ at the expense of many longtime loyal customers!
For this kind of $$$ I expect a whole lot more! There are to many other courses for $40-$50 that I will be play to play regularly!

Overpriced

I have played Blue Sky a handful of times. The renovated clubhouse and new practice facilities are a nice addition. It’s a shame that golfers have to hit off of mats.
It has never been a well manicured golf course tee to green, but today was better than what it has been in the past. Green were punched about 2 weeks ago. They were still pretty bumpy. Fairways are much better than what they used to be. There are still some spots that are undesirable, but not a ton. I did not find a bunker today, so comments on them. For $65 I would have wanted a bit more. Even for a Sunday morning tee time, that’s about $20-30 too much for this golf course in my opinion. I’d love to come back when the greens are smoother, but would still not want to pay $65.

With all that said, pace of play was great. Played in 3 1/2 hours. Staff was friendly. Fun layout.

Bad greens for $72

Worst greens I have ever played on. I can understand punching holes in the greens, but don't charge $72. The only good thing was pace of play.

Greens and maintenance

The greens were in atrocious shape and the maintenance crew was spray and working on the greens and fairways while we were taking shots and showed no courtesy to players in the fairway or tee box. Tried to speak to management and I was informed that they were not on site. Left my phone number and it’s 6:30 pm and still haven’t received a call. This used to be a nice course but has taken a turn for the worse.

Up and coming course

This course is a great layout and great fun. The only downside is the conditions of some of the greens. Patchwork like crazy. I feel like a quality greens keeping staff and a little elbow grease would make this course a true gem.

Would love to play this course when it’s at its finest.

I really liked the design of this course. Challenging but fun! The biggest issue, however, was that there were tons of patches of sod all over the course (including a few greens) and they honestly could patch up a few more areas. Obviously I just caught this course at the wrong time, but I’d like to play this course again once the grass is repaired.

Something needs to be done

The course is starting to look like it did before it closed. No grass in the fairways no grass on the tee boxes greens slow bumpy and inconsistent from green to green. It looked great when it first reopned and has gone done hill over the past two years to the point that i really dont want to play there even though i live really close to blue sky. There are a dozen courses in Jacksonville you can play for the same price or less that are in way better shape.

Problem group

Moved along well for 13 holes, then got stuck behind a rowdy group. There was 6-7 people. They were yelling, driving carts in circles, taking multiple shots including running starts, hitting at the same time off the tee box and hitting while there friends we’re driving cats in the path of their shots. Disruptive, dangerous and really put a damper on the end of our round.

Great course overall

Blue Sky is a fun layout. Not particularly difficult. Fair test of golf. Greens looked good. Tee boxes and fairways are looking a little rough. Dead patches. Staff is always great. A little overpriced to me for the course conditions but not too bad. If you want a solid, fun round of golf you can’t go wrong here. My group plays there once a month.

Good Local Course

Play here pretty often and always nice to get out to play 9 holes. Greens were extra sandy today and pace of play a bit slow. Seems there was a bit of a back up compared to normal. I still recommend this course as i have played it several times and this is the first time I have encountered a slower pace and very sandy greens. I'll be back there in another week or two.
