Rating 71.0
Type Public
Hyde Park Golf Club, built in 1925 by Donald Ross, is one of the oldest in Florida. In 1971, the golf course was purchased by former touring professionals Billy Maxwell and Chris Blocker, who have successfully restored it. Rolling hills, gorgeous Spanish Oaks and towering Southern Pines make Hyde Park a lasting experience. A tour stop for the men's and women's professional golf tours in the 1940s and 1950s, the golf course gained a place in history during the 1947 Jacksonville Open. The great Ben Hogan took an 11 on the par-3 sixth, which became known as "Hogan's Alley." It has a deep-faced bunker to the right and water to the left. Hyde Park Golf Club measures 6,468 yards from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 71, and it has a slope rating of 124.

Leaps and bounds

Hyde Park is making great strides in rejuvenating itself. The course has great bones and the fairways and greens are greatly improved. At around $15-$20 to play, what more can you ask for.

Great affordable fun

First time playing this course and for the price you just can’t beat it. The layout is fun, and the back 9 was my favorite because of the difficult holes. Not much water or hazards, so posting a good score is definitely possible. Will play again.

Great Conditions

The course is in really good shape. I read an earlier review that said the course could be better, so I was concerned. The grounds crew has done an outstanding job, considering all the rain we have had in the past 3 months. The greens are a little slow, and the are running true, so it may not be a private course, but it is in as good a shape as any course I can play on.

It is what it is

It's a nice little Donald Ross course. You can't expect pristine conditions when you pay $17 - $30. It's a shame that it can't be made into the beautiful course it could be but not for that money

A lot of work going into the course.

Greens recently top dressed so will be great soon. Love the layout of the course. Not your typical Florida development course.

First Time Playing

Hyde Park

This was my first time playing the course. The greens were in good shape, some tee boxes were pretty beat up. Overall the course was in really good shape. The only negative I really have to say about the course conditions was the standing water in every fairway. It has rained nearly every day for the past few weeks. Maybe they could fix some drainage issue's. The staff was professional and friendly. We played 18 in 3 and a half hours. All in all it was a really fun day of golf on a nice historic golf course. The layout is old school, with wide, forgiving fairways and small elevated greens. If you live within an hour it is worth it to play at least once.

Painfilly slow play.

Satrurday and there were 2somes all over the course. We were a group of 4 and waited on every hole for 2somes that would not join together. At one point there we're 9 groups on three holes. There was a marshall on the course that just sat and watched never combining 2 groups. The course was in good shape and it's a nice track. At the turn if you want it a snack and a drink you had to go to two different spots. The snack bar did not have drinks and bar did not have snacks.

Good conditions

I have played Hyde Park in the past, and gave it a try after not playing there for at least a few years. I have to say I was quite impressed with most of the conditions on this old style course on the west side of Jacksonville. The greens were rather slow but still had a really good roll. Fairways had lots of green grass and the tee boxes look like they been worked on. It doesn’t have the conditions of some of other high value of golf courses in the area, but I strongly recommend: play this great Donald Ross design. It’ll take you back in time on many of the holes. It was wet from all the rain we have had but most areas of the course was playable.

Too many players

8 holes took 2.5 hrs, it was so tediously slow we quit course after 8 holes .... basically "hit and sit"

Way too many foursomes playing No ranger to speed things up Proshop not overly concerned, "play is slow today" And whos to blame for that?? Selling a hot deal is not a deal if the round takes 5 or 5.5 hrs, also throwing foursomes off the first tee as soon as they can hit is a recipe for inordinately long rounds. Greed on the proshop is to blame.

I will never ever go on a weekend again I have played here 25 yrs and never saw it so bad

Love to have seen it in its heyday!

Early Donald Ross design with almost all of the green complexes above the level of the fairways. They are still bumpy from recent aerification and are correspondingly long and slow. I made a nice 3 on #6 and would have made up 8 shots on Hogan in '47! If they can continue to improve the greens; the layout, challenge, and the true beauty of Hyde Parks history may bring back its greatness.
