This is one of the best courses I have played in the Saint Augustine area. The only problem was it was cartpath only because they were seeding the fairways. I will definitely play here again.

I'll begin with the fact that the reason I played this course was a surprising Hot Deal ($30).

Got to the course and was told that it was cart path only because they had just done their fall overseeding on the fairways. As long as the greens were not aerated I was fine with that, although it was often A long walk :-).

Course was fairly deserted because of the overseeing, thus the price. Great condition. Consistent quick greens and layout.

I wish they would have more hot deals like this but will probably not happen. Too bad because a lot of people are missing out on a great course.

The course was surprisingly wet -- despite the fact that the area has not had an overabundance of rain in the past week or so. I played the day before at another JAX-area course, and there were no wet spots. The wet conditions were only half of the battle. Once I finally found the course (you would think that if World Golf Village can afford TV advertising it could afford more than two directional signs to Slammer and Squire), the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. As for the course, interesting layout, visually attractive and challenging enough (though not particularly long unless you play from the tips). Other observation was the relatively slow speed of the greens. This is the time of year when the greens all over JAX speed up. Not here though. I would like to play here again, but it will have to be during a prolonged dry spell.

This is definitely a very nice course . However, the regular price of $95 is a little too high for my tastes. With a Hotdeal from Golfnow.com, I got on for $35. The staff was friendly, the course conditions were very good, and had it not been for the wet conditions that caused us to use "cart path only", this would have been perfect. Great resort next door, too.

I have played the Slammer & Squire four times now and have enjoyed playing very much. Golf Now has made the price possible to play for an old guy on a fixed income. I hope they keep it up so I can play some more. Every golfer should enjoy playing at least once so you can play it again.

Course was well cared for and spacious giving you some room for minor errant shots. Greens were somewhat quick but adjustments will give you a better chance to make some putts. Liked the course very much. Will play again.

First, there was a great deal on Golfnow. It was 11:57 and first tee time after a tournament made turn. They were running an hour behind and starter graciously asked and strongly suggested we get out early to avoid getting stuck behind group. It was admirable the way they looked out for us. I got paired with an avid golfing couple from St. Aug, Don and Miss Vickie, that were a joy to play with.

Fairways and valleys were soft and soggy. We had lots of plugged and muddy balls. It would have been good to get an advisory from starter or golf shop. Otherwise great experience again st WGV.

This course lives up to its hype. It has all that look for in a course Fast greens, wide fairways that provide a good challenge from both tee shots and approach shots. The course was in great shape when I played and pace of play was kept up throughout the round. Staff was friendly, and very reasonable with situations presented. All in all a great course to play.
