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.

"Not advised about heavily sanded greens"

We were disappointed to find each and every green - including the practice green - covered with a thick layer of sand. Putting was very frustrating and there was lots of sand stuck to the ball and our hands after every hole. Other courses seem to rotate their sanding so only a portion of the greens are being worked on at any time and the sand is certainly not anywhere near this deep.

We were not advised about this course condition when booking and it doesn’t appear that we were given any kind of discount. We visit this area for a month every year and were looking forward to a nice outing at North Hampton, a course we had yet to play. Unfortunately it did not turn out that way.

The course layout is great but the current condition of the Greens and some of the sand traps are in bad shape. The greens are bumpy and spotty with fungi infestation. A number of the sandtraps are under repair and have some gravel laid at the bottom of the trap.

Will not recommend the course in its current condition.

You need to have the gravel at the bottom for drainage. The bunkers being repaired are currently Ground Under Repair, so there is free relief from any ball coming to rest in them.

My group has been playing this course for about 4-5 years now, and right now it's in the poorest condition I've seen it in. This is still a great layout and fun course, but the greens are almost unputtable. The issue my playing partners had the most trouble with was the price, if you know you're having course condition issues the rate should reflect that, paying full price and seeing those greens was tough to handle.

I've been playing this course with a group since September. The greens have never been right and often they are terrible. Putting is one-third of the game. What's the point if the greens are blotched, pitted and diseased? This is not worth what they charge.

Challenging lay out and very tough when windy. Greens were a little slow but very playable. Well worth a play at $40. Pace of play was great due to the weather fore cast scaring people away.

North Hampton is not far from the Greater Jacksonville . The course Layout is challenging and a bit windy mostly. The green were a bit bumpy, and sand trap were not in good shape. But overall experience was rewarding and we’ll come and play again!
