First time playing Grand Haven, course was recommended by another Golfnow Customer that I had the privileged of playing with at LPGA. He informed me the course use to be private and is now open to the public. I enjoyed the course and found it some what moderate to play. They have one interesting par 3 that is very deceiving, because it is surrounded by a horseshoe of water. You don't realize their is water on the backside of the green until you reach the green. The course is in great shape and slower groups are very courteous to let you play through. Topography of the course is nice because on one of the holes it looks like you are right next to the Intercoastal waterway. I will be playing Grand Haven again, and I've already recommended it to several other golphers.

Must play, terrific course.........usually afternoon tee times and the bar closes early like 5 or so. So no 19th hole storytelling. But it is worth a trip to play.

I had been looking forward to playing this Nicklaus Signature course for quite some time, I was not disappointed. I rate the course as maintained-plus, not quite pristine but very nice. as expected the greens were very quick and had very subtle breaks. From the tee to the green it was moderately challenging, as long as you hit your ball in the short grass. around the greens the challenge builds. very well placed traps, great sand, and a little wind makes this a very good choice for any player level. The island green par 3 is exceptionally nice. Some forced carry over wetlands. The course has enough yardage for even the biggest bomber. But length does not assure a good score, important to hit it in the right approach location. If you are in this area, go try Grand Haven.

Very well maintained. Holes give you a variety of looks. Lets you play all the clubs and shots you have. Challenging layout, very fair in that it's open but has plenty of trouble to get into with errant shots. Traps, water...etc. Very nice green complexes that make for fun hole locations. Greens make you work. No let up. Roll extremely well. Saw wild turkeys, 4 or 5 deer snooping the rough and woods. And saw the largest cottonmouth I'd ever want to see. Adds to the flavor of the day. Should be on any ones list if there in the neighborhood. I have played a lot of well known places and don't mind saying, you won't be sorry to spend a few hours at Grand Haven.

I hate that I lived within a couple of miles of this course for over a year without playing it. With a limited number of tee times available to the general public, I was excited to be able to get on with just an hour's notice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course itself was in very nice shape in spite of recent rainy weather. Forced carries were not overwhelming from the silver tees. I look forward to returning.

While I do not reside in Florida on a permanent basis, I belong to another local, private course in the Palm Coast area when I visit my second home. After playing Grand Haven, I wouldn't mind switching over. I play my home course and the LPGA courses frequently, and really like their greens; however, Grand Haven beats them all. I can't say enough about the pristine conditions. Staff were also nice and cordial. 5 stars!

Very enjoyable.Well maintained. Front nine more recently<br/> aerated (2 wks?) made it more difficult to judge speed. Water and wet lands demand some carry on tee shots, but not insurmountable. Lots of choices on tee boxes to get the right distance from the tees.

Jack has several interesting holes here. The landing areas are fair off the tee. Approach shots require thought. Greens are Bermuda and putts must be firm.

We play here often and it is always a treat. Had a little snaffu getting started today with cargo pockets on some shorts but overcame it and had a nice time. This is a must play when in the Palm Coast, very well maintained course with a cordial staff.

Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were avg speed. Played it on a busy Sat. afternoon so play was slower than I like, but I like playing quickly.<br/> Sure can't complain for a good Golfnow price. I'll probably play there again.

My wife and I played at 1:00 on a Saturday and we never saw anyone in front or behind us till the 16th hole. We played in 3 1/2 hours. The course has a lot of hidden hazards of the tee and after playing the course just once you could figure out where to hit your drives. The greens were in good shape and were challenging. We really enjoyed our round and look forward to playing Grand Haven again.

Course was in great condition; however customer service was terrible. We got through 7 holes and had a rain storm move through so decided to wait. We were 29 minutes ahead of schedule at the time. We decided to finish the nine as lighting went away. As we began 10th hole, we had a cart guy show us the radar and said we can do what we want. I asked if we could get a rain check, but he said he didn't have the authority. So we played on. On the 10th fairway, he chased us down and I quote said "Guys this is ridiculous, I don't want to wait another two hours and my wife wants to cook me dinner. This was at 5:35pm. He said he would vouch for us to play nine after 3. So he handed me a handwritten letter for 2 to play 9 after 3pm. He even misspelled my name after he asked me to spell it. I would expect. This course director to give me a call and say he is sorry. I live out of town. The rain check would have been fine without the explanation of the cart guy needing to get home because his wife wanted to cook him dinner. This coming from some one who was a cart guy for 5 years in Amelia Island, Florida.
