Located in Florida’s oldest city, Royal St. Augustine Golf & Country Club offers a glimpse of the area’s lush foliage and native marshlands. The course has a visually interesting layout with elevated, sprawling greens and a variety of bunker shapes and sizes. The moguled fairways and sandy waste areas are two other distinguishing features of the course. It is a tight course with large greens and gentle undulations. The layout provides a “target-golf” experience that puts a premium on accuracy and distance control. The numerous bends in the course in combination with the blustery winds also makes proper club selection very important.

Horribke

Golf course was in terrible condition and although the price wasn’t high it did not measure up to other courses in the area for same price. Terrible experience and I would avoid this course at all costs!

Nice course.... without the photographer!

So my daughter and I came to play here for the first time. Staff was friendly, not much of a driving range (enough to warmup on), and finding the first tee was a bit of a challenge. Got there and ready to tee off when up rolls a golf cart with a man with more local knowledge than Ponce de Leon! After he stopped us from starting he talked to us for 5 solid minutes on what we should and shouldn’t do, how “difficult” the course is, and then proceeds to make us pose for a photograph??? Played golf for 35 years and NEVER had that happen. He then proceeds to pull up on the tee box right behind me to watch me tee off! Wow. Again, another first. Other than being accosted by this man at the turn to “purchase” the picture he had taken of us, the rest of the day was great. Pace of play was awesome, which is important to us. Course conditions were fine. Greens were slower than what we are used to, but very playable. Very glad the assistant pro was nice enough to give us a yardage book that had pictures of all the holes. Made it easier to play for the first time. I would definitely come back to this course, but would be VERY happy to not be photographed and accosted. Definitely dampened the experience.

Great layout

This course make you play every club in the bag. Bring your iron game because this one is narrow but relatively large greens. Greens were a little slow for me but I’m really good shape. I play this course about twice a year while on vacation. I’ll be back in a few months!

Fair Price for the Conditions

Staff is very friendly as usual. Course condition is better than it’s been in months, greens in decent shape but not quite there yet with some playing slower than others. Not much of a rough, it’s either fairway or forest. Carts are showing age and wear without signs of improvement.

Tough day.

The fairways were lush with a mix of weeds, neatly groomed. The greens were smooth running at 10.5 or so on the stint meter. Bring your best game, because the fairways are tight with plenty of undulation.
