About

Type Semi-Private
Style Links
Par 72
Length 7080 yards
Slope 144
Rating 75.0

The Golf Club at North Hampton offers a traditional Scottish links-style course right in northeast Florida. Designed by Arnold Palmer, the layout meanders through dramatic elevation changes of over 40 feet and ten spring-fed lakes lined with coquina boulders. Sprawled across rolling hills and wild grasses, the golf course is sculpted from beautiful Florida woodlands, offering a round that is as scenic as it is challenging. The Golf Club at North Hampton's hard-to-read greens are massive and move very quickly. There are also tight fairways, many of which feature blind approaches. To make it even trickier, strong winds often sweep through the course, some even reaching a speed of 30 miles an hour.

Nice Layout Terrible Condition!

The layout is appealing but the overall terrible condition of the course ruins the experience! They are redoing the bunkers which is nice to see but spend some time and money on the tee boxes, fairways and greens! Second time here and both times the conditions were terrible. Will NOT make the mistake of returning again!

First Time

Wow. Looks quite open from the tees, but plenty of challenges all the way to the greens. Greens were large, undulating and some tough pin placements. Slicing will get you into trouble.

greens were in great condition

Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the greens for February. Paired up with great guys, we had fun on a cold day. Staff were very friendly. Layout is very challenging. Was told it was actually more punitive in years past. Will come back, a very good course.

Great Course and Greens

I've played NH about 150 times in the past 10 years and its gone through ups and downs. My friend and I got out before the Super Bowl and after the morning rain cleared and were able to buzz around 18 holes in 3 hours. The greens were immaculate, fast, firm and amazing! Many of the bunkers are getting drainage installed currently and due to the morning weather, were going to be wet anyhow. They have cut back much of the gorse/scrub/sawgrass that borders each hole and gives it the links feel. I miss the golf cart GPS systems that they used to have and they have not marked enough sprinkler heads w/ yardages, so if you dont have a laser range finder, you may be frustrated w/ getting accurate yardages. The clubhouse had a face lift and the staff is always fantastic! The rates have increased but its worth it as they have put money and care into the course!

This is a big reason the ownership has committed to updates, such as painting the dining room and adding new flooring in the last 3 weeks. A bunker renovation is currently underway with even more good stuff on the horizon.

Great Golf Course

North Hampton is an absolute must play course if you’re in Jacksonville area. This was the 6th course I played this week and it was the best. Queens Harbor was a close second, but North Hampton is number one. Every other course winds through houses on every hole. This course makes you feel like you’re out on a golf course. Not someone’s back yard. The layout is awesome and the conditions were great. You can miss off tee and still score well. Challenging, but forgiving.
Play it !!

OUCH!!! Challenging course that I could not rise up for the occasion. Greens fast and true. Course layout is good and accuracy rather than distance is critical for decent scoring and avoid 3-putts!!!

Excellent condition with fast greens

The overall course conditions were excellent except for the cart paths, which need some attention. The greens were fast and true if you pay attention to the features of the greens.

Great layout

Course was very challenging. Fairways were tight for a medium handicap golfer. Staff was great, explained the pin placements and gave a guide book with it. Will play again when I return to Jacksonville.

Wonderful fall day

My group of 4 absolutely loved the day of golf. The weather was a great break to have 75 degrees after a long hot summer of 90 plus temps. The course was breath taking with the elevated tee boxes and sloping hills. Fairway to green was in excellent shape. One of my partners had this course on is bucket list and he was very pleased with his outing. Numerous comments throughout the day about how we should come back and play this course again. We drove a little over an hour to play this course and it was well worth the drive. Sunday's during football season can sometimes be a difficult choice for golf but considering the Jaguars suck this year and they played a horrible game early in the morning in England we were able to salvage the day with some beautiful weather and good fellowship on a wonderful course.
