Royal St. Augustine Golf and Country Club
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.

I have played this course about 30 times. Every time the course was in impeccable shape. Fairways, greens etc always were in great shape. I had not played here in about 9 months so when I suggested to a friend I did not realize what was going to happen. Weeds, crabgrass, high fairway grass unkept bunkers were routine. They put us behind what appeared to be a league of slow players and did not let us know. The carts used to have gps but now they only have a sign that says to clean your cart out after you are done with the round. On top of this I had forgotten my shoes and was wearing sandels. They did not have shoes for sale in the pro shop. I played in flip flops. I can only assume they are closing soon.
Great pace of play, interesting layout, friendly staff, will play again.
Nice course, narrow fairways.
This is a good course although with very narrow fairways.
Played from forward tees with irons instead of driver and was able to enjoy it.
It was not kept up to par maintenance wise as compared with similar priced courses in the area.
There is an inordinate amount of driving in between holes and needs better signage.
Getting better than years ago
This course is in better condition than years ago. Was able to collect my first Eagle after driving home 3 and sinking the putt.
Great staff, all of them
The course is pretty good but the staff is absolutely great from the guy in the pro shop to the bar staff to the maintenance crew... all friendly.
As mentioned, bring a few extra golf balls maybe some of those old top flights and Wilson's that have been hanging around. You will use them.
Really enjoy this course each time we play it. Perfect weather, excellent cocktails, everyone very friendly! I consider this a challenging course because some of the fairways are very narrow and if you drift off to the right or left, the rough is a Forrest! I highly recommend playing this course, it;s a tremendous value as well.
Amazing course for the price!
The course was in amazing shape! Greens were a little on the slow side but in great shape. Long drives between holes and not a lot of signage but we figured it out. Will definitely be coming back!
I’m from up north and our courses are a lot more forgiving. There is water on nearly every hole on this course. Hit an errant shot in the woods and forget about it. Rough was thick. You really get punished for errant shots on this course. Bring extra balls.
The course was in great shape and scenic. Lots of challenging and rich holes. I think I used my driver 3 times the entire round.. lots of laying up.
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.
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!
