RIGHT NOW IS NOT A GOOD TIME TO PLAY THIS COURSE

I have played this course plenty times over the years and today was the worst I ever seen it. First of all you cannot pity ur ball in the hole because they have the hole cover because of CO-VID 19. Second, they are seeding. Third, some holes are in bad shape regardless. The staff is very friendly but they did not give us a heads up about none of the above. I drove 35 miles for this. One of my friends took pictures I sure hope he post them, so you can decide for yourself. It will be awhile until I come back.

Course and staff real good as usual, especially considering the worldwide pandemic. About to lose a few of the greens though if not careful, especially #7.

At least they’re open

The course is open despite the health scare going on. It’s a fun course but the greens are not up to par with other courses in the area.

Can I give a negative score? Worst place I can imagine in JAX

This is the worst course I have experienced,
1. A guy yelled at me,other players told me he is always playing there. Horrible experience,need a serious apology from the manager.
2. Their employee is hiding every truth about what I experienced,and after I wrote my review they taged me "you will have no business",this is not what I wish to hear.
3. I don't really feel any warm service,unlike other golf course that everyone is warm and polite.
4. Some other players comes to me and tell me this course is always like this.
5. I tried hard to be as polite as possible.

This is the first time I write a review,hope everyone just got a full picture about this golf course.

We are here for fun, not for being unhappy.

Still needs work.

There are some rough spots around the course for sure. A few of the greens are nearly unputtable. But a great layout and great value. Give it a few more years and hopefully they’ll have it in prime condition.

The course overall is in fairly good shape. There are some greens that need some TLC but overall fun. The pace of play is pretty good but don’t spend a long time looking for your ball. The natives can be a bit pushy, especially the big groups. Other than that I would recommend this place.

Greens are bad

Front nine greens were terrible — could hardy put them, they were so bouncy—they need to visit some other courses to see what greens should look and play like

Excellent experience, good value

I was allowed to tee off prior to my booked time which is a major benefit for me. The course is in good shape. However, the greens are sketchy. That said, I enjoyed my round.

Slow but manageable

We played today and with the cancellation of the Players at Sawgrass , the course was probably fuller than a typical Friday causing some slow play . Everybody was on there best behavior so no jerks running up our back .
We had a new golfer and group behind us was very gracious .
I attribute this to a savvy starter and good course management . Greens need some work but all in all , had a great day and plan to put this course on my “ go to “ list.
