Very nice daily fee course
Very nice layout with variety of holes and tees. Green complexes are very nice with average bunker conditions and good roll to the greens. Fairways a little thin but rolling the ball 2-3 inches usually good get acceptable lie. Great course for the money with GolfNow deal for a single at noon. Better than most of the resort courses in the area for the money. Would definitely play again if staying in the area.
I booked this course through Golf Now one day ahead. The course is in great shape and the staff from bag drop off to bartenders are wonderful! I will definitely be back! In fact, I’m going back tomorrow!
The course was in excellent shape! Enjoyed our round. Greens were excellent! We recommend this course!
Fun Course - Pro Shop staff NOT friendly at all
This was my first time playing this course.
The course is in average shape. Not great and not bad. The pro-shop staff was not too helpful. I asked for a cooler to use with water and gator aid which I purchased they told me they did not have coolers. This is the only course in the area I know of which does NOT have a cooler either on the cart or to use. This is Florida and it is summer time. Every one needs cold drinks and refreshment for a 4hr round of golf in the sun.
I liked the course and would play it again, but I would bring my own drinks and cooler. There was not a beverage cart out on the course. There was no on-course beverage cart service.
For the price I paid, there should be access to drinks and snacks on the course.
There are free range balls to hit, but the range was in rough shape (little grass and divots EVERYWHERE). Hardly a smooth surface anywhere to hit from.
This course is top notch, one of my favorite courses I have ever played.
This was a tournament that I played in and had a great time and the course conditions were really good. Greens were superb and true and layout was a challenge if playing from the back tees.
My only draw back was the head pro. He had ZERO customer service skills, never said hello or smiled and was bothered that he had to man the grill and the pro shop. He doesn’t look or act like a head pro even with a big thing of tobacco in his cheek...find a new profession sir because you are not what a golf professional resembles.
Fair with some quirks
I enjoyed playing the course. The staff were especially helpful in walking me thru the course book and highlighting hazards that aren’t visible from the fairway. The greens rolled true and were moderately quick. The 1st green had a swell, closer to a gully, running down the middle. My approach on the par 5 landed on the opposite side of this feature from the hole and it made it impossible to roll any sort of true putt. Enjoyed a nice late lunch at the ample grill. Waitstaff first rate.
Great course with wonderful staff
Course was fun to play and in great condition. Free range balls and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Pace of play a little slow, but worth playing. Definitely would recommend to all.
The course is in great shape right now. And the staff was extremely friendly. There were three golfers in my group, ranging from a bogey golfer to a guy who shot 120. But we all had a great time and enjoyed the course very much. I would definitely play it again and recommend it to a friend. I gave 4 out of 5 stars because there was no on-course beverage cart service. Personally, I feel that for the price point, there should be access to drinks and snacks on the course. For $70+, one can reasonable expect certain amenities.
Great course for the Money
Great little course and extremely friendly staff. Well kept and just tricky and tight enough for you to think about how to score. Greens held approach shots well and putted medium speed. Most tee shots made you think about what you wanted to do, but open enough you could make a mistake. Take out your 1 iron a few times but enough holes to let the big dog eat. Cant wait to come back
Loved this course
From the time we pulled in to play until the time we left. I feel in love with this facility. The staff was extremely helpful to get me and my group off to a good start. The course was not packed so we were able to start about 10 minutes earlier than our scheduled tee time. Fairways were absolutely beautiful, and even though the greens had been aerated a few weeks prior, we found the greens to be very good shape. Hole 14 and 17 were my favorites. The only down side was not cart service but we were able to get refreshments at the turn. I look forward to coming back to this course. Its to bad I live 1 1/2 hours away.
This is a well designed challenging course. It is a bit pricey, but it is located in a popular vacation destination, so that was to be expected. Some holes have wide open fairways where you can let loose, and others are tight where you have to make some strategic decisions. Water hazards abound and there are some large bunkers to be weary of. Large Oaks are all over the course which add to the lurking hazards. Greens were large and soft and rolled true.
The course is located next to the airport, so you get watch the planes take of and land which you don't see everyday. Only complaint is that there is no beverage cart. It gets hot on this island, so come pre-hydrated.
Fun course to play. Open from the tee with wide fairways.
Greens about 10- 14 days from being really good, recovering from aerification a couple weeks ago.
The fairways are in excellent shape. The greens were areated 2 weeks ago. We played automatic 2 putt once on the green. The greens are coming back quickly and they have given a discount due to the greens condition. You won't be disappointed.
Sanded and treated Greens, large punched fairways
The Staff very friendly and helpful. The greens were just treated, had very sandy conditions on top of green. Fairways were punched, with very large holes, golf ball would roll into the hole, and look like a fried egg.
This is probably a 3.5 Star review. They had just aerated the greens, but they still had A TON of sand on them. I play on aerated greens several times a year and have never seen anyone leave this much sand. We played at a discounted rate. If the greens were perfect I would not have been happy paying the full rate for this course. It is nice and has a good layout but it is not a $60-70 course. The fairways were good overall, but there were some tee boxes that needed work. Also, there is no grass on the range,had to hit off dirt. Also, just as a note, for a course named Amelia River, there isn’t a single hole on the river. You finally see the river after you finish 18. It should be named Fernandina Beach Airport Golf Course.
Tight but good
I tend to drive it a bit crooked but I managed my way around with maybe 5 or 6 balls (found 4 or 5 while looking for mine). Greens were fast but the reads were not sneaky. Pretty good shape. Very playable for my wife who drives straight. Some forced carries which are what they are for shorter hitters. I’m an 11 and shot 82 even with my 8 or ten penalty shots so not a course where missing a green means instant double bogey. I enjoyed it.
This review is to let the public know that they will be aerating the greens May 8th to 11th 2018. The course will be closed. I do highly recommend this course once the greens make their way back from grooming.
Course is in great shape. Fairways are greening up . Greens are groomed and fairly quick. Course isn't overly challenging, but is a course worth playing. Driving range,golf cart and practice green are included in price.
Nice track, quick greens.
This is a fun course with quick greens. I saw a gator on 1 and 14, so that added a little interest. The course challenges with some risk taking opportunities, but you can think your way around it. For as fast as the greens were, they held pretty well if you spun the ball. I'd play here again.
