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.

Hidden Gem

One of my favorite courses. Challenging with rolling hills. Great layout and not exactly a short course. Yes, some holes are short making you want to go for the green on a par 4 but if you miss, lost ball for sure. Worth the money to play.

Great views and challenging layout

no two holes are the same. Very interesting undulating fairways and greens. Birdied the alligator hole! A must play if you like to explore the variety of courses in the area. Only negative is the bev cart was not stocked. But course was fabulous.

Challenging and well maintained course

Pro shop gent very accommodating to me for having to modify my tee time to a bit later. Professional and courteous (Robin was his name, I believe) course was in very nice shape; greens held and rolled quickly. Super friendly staff all around; beverage cart lady, food service Mgr, pro shop attendant. Everyone was cognizant and instructive as to the social distancing and sanitizing protocols.

Great bang for the buck!

No problem golf. Nice layout. Challenging but fair. The only problem was the bunkers. They were pretty much unplayable, but local downpours in this part of the country make them hard to maintain..

Fun layout

Fairways in good shape. Greens a little bumpy. Looks like they had been aerated recently. Bunkers are in bad shape. Some are good some look as though they are in the process of being repaired. Played 2 months ago same thing. Long time to repair if that is the case. Pro shop never said they should be played ground under repair. All in all a $50 course

Fairways dry to bad for such a great course

The Greens were in excellent shape but the fairways were all dry and brown in several areas. This course has always been great in the past and I was shocked on how bad the fairways were.

Course is in poor shape.

This is a nice layout, but the course is in poor shape. Greens were plugged recently and are bumpy and slow. Sprigs of poianna are in the greens and throughout the fairways. Course was fertilized today and that will help the Bermuda, but weed application is a must.

Great course and affordable

2nd time playing and totally enjoy the course. From Colorado and wish we had a hidden gem like this back home. Unfortunately today we only made it through 12 holes when the rain came in a deluge. Can’t beat the price for this challenging yet quit fun course!

Nice layout

Course is designed and laid out so each hole is very unique and you rarely see other groups. Greens are pretty brown but roll very fast. Lots of water and doglegs make it challenging from any tee box. Pace of play was less than 4 hrs.

Great Layout

Pace of play and course layout were fantastic today! Played in under 3.5 hours, but could have played even faster.. most holes are completely set apart and houses do not come into play. The recent rains have caused some issues to the tee boxes, but overall, the course was great for the price paid.

North Hampton.

Of course many Fl Courses are wide, flat and friendly.
This course did not make you feel you were in Fl.
The trees, bunkers and water were nicely placed to require you pay attention.
Greens were a C+ and I assume they had recently been aerated and were healing. There design and contours offered appropriate challenges.

Sweet and Sour

This course is sweet bc visually it’s very nice. Meandors through some nice houses and also some natural areas. In very good condition except the bunkers, they looked like they had been washed out by rain and that they haven’t been refilled with sand, it’s not all of them but all you’ve got to do is avoid them right? However the sourness comes into to play by the challenge of the course. A good bit of blind tee shots where you can’t see the ball roll out, lots of fairway bunkers and the greens......... they are large greens however they do have a lot of undulation and they will test your green reading ability. Also, the fairways are a very good size however, if you miss a fairway there isn’t much rough to keep you from getting lost. Fun course, you’ll enjoy it and lots of different tee options to choose from for your playing level. The carts do not have GPS but they do have USB ports for your devices. Have Fun!!!!
