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.

5 Years Ago

Last played here 5 years ago. Prior to that, played this course for 10+ years. It is now, no where near the prior conditions. While I realize Dorian may have put them behind in course management, the rough needed mowing, cut grass in the fairways was piled high. Also looked like their mowers need adjustment. Not a level cut. Some sandtraps were hard packed while others were ok. This use to be one of the finest maintained courses around. Would only rate it as average now.

Cartpaths & Course condition

No paved or cemented pathways - dirt, rough, bumpy horrible cartpaths.
Fairways were mowed but not swept or mowings blown.
Teeboxes and greens in poor condition.
First & last time we would ever play this Course.
The two men in the Pro Shop were not friendly!

The design of the course is that of a classic links, and our cart paths are made of coquina shell to go along with the aesthetics of that. Concrete paths would not fit in with the style of the course. Also, when a tee time is booked for 12:50pm and you show up to play at 11:00am, there is an additional fee to play. The staff explained that and you were not satisfied with the explanation. This 1 star rating is nothing more than a retaliation for us holding to our and GolfNow's policy regarding Hot Deals.

Tough place to play

This is one of the best places to play in Jacksonville area. It's in Yule, about a 40 minute ride from downtown Jacksonville. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are in magnificent condition. Greens are not as fast as they usually are, but I think it's that way at most courses.
Course layout is challenging., par fives give you a lot to think about.
Par threes shot is difficult to stick on the greens. You will probably be best served to play it twice, to get the best round, which may not help some. Staff is friendly and accommodating, which is a improvement from years past. Play it it's worth it

North Hampton

North Hampton remains a great course requiring your best. A good mix of holes, with difficult and challenging ones followed up by another one and then perhaps one a bit easier but still exacting. Large and undulating greens offer variety of pin placements. The greens held all shots but were a bit on the slow side so you had to make solid contact in order to get it inside your comfort range. Recommend this course but bring your A game or at least your B+ game.

Course is in great shape.

Mid Summer conditions. Lush greens (slow). Course is in great shape with all the new sand.
Course has policy that all golf now customers adhere to tee time. Rather puzzling on an empty course.

Great course but super slow

Played on a Tuesday morning. A member foursome started 20 minutes before us and played a 5 hour money round in 93 degree heat. Would not let our twosome play through. No help from marshal. Waited 15 minutes on 15 for them to summon marshall to report 3 teenagers fishing in the pond. Great course but zero course management

Course in Great Shape!!!

Course was in great shape. The course was really empty maybe due to holiday.

Starter would not allow my group of 4 to go our 20 min because we book on Golf Now. No one even showed up so tee times were empty, but didn't get to start our round early with storm coming in... other than that good day spent with friends.

Great Golf Course

My son and I played yesterday and the course was in perfect shape and the pace of play could not have been better. I enjoy playing this course because it is very challenging, especially from the tips which is where we played. I need to put it on my rotation more often!

First Time @ NH

No one answered when I called late in the afternoon so I left my number. Tried to get a time on TeeOff, but didn't think it went thru. Course called me back & said to come on out. I paid the twi-light rate & was able to finish before dark (in 3 hours!). Loved the course! Beautiful & in great shape. Lots of water, sand, vegetation & elevation changes cut thru the wetlands. Found out the next day that TeeOff charged me too. Course said they'd give me the difference if I came back.

Late Round

It was my last day on vakay & I wanted to play after spending the day on the beach with spouse. It was late (5pm) so I didn't know if they'd allow me to finish 18. Called, but no answer. Left a message. Tried to book online, but no success. Golf shop called me back & said to come on out. Didn't catch up to anyone until 15 so finished with ease. Wonderful course! Great layout! It was in fantastic shape! It was as nice as the Omni for half the price. It's not on the ocean, but the scenery is very beautiful. Lots of water, trees, bunkers, elevation changes & vegetation to contend with. It was a little difficult to know where to hit on some holes & I got a little lost between a couple holes since it was my first time playing. Lost a couple balls in hidden hazards so playing with someone with some course knowledge would be a plus, but I really enjoyed the round.

Slow Greens, but would recommend course.

This was my first time playing the course. Add to this that I was having a hard time finding my swing. These two factors added to the challenge of the course. I liked the layout and would like to play the course again. The greens were very slow, but in nice shape. This is an overall nice course that looks a little neglected.
