Just a half-mile from the beach, Atlantic Beach Country Club (formerly known as Selve Marina Country Club) offers scenic seaside views but that also means every hole is subject to gusty ocean winds. The golf course has a traditional links-style layout with wide fairways and small, rolling greens. There are also some elevated greens. This player-friendly golf course provides excellent short game practice. Atlantic Beach C. C's signature hole is the famous, par-5 18th where Jack Nicklaus recorded his first "double eagle" at the Greater Jacksonville Open in 1966. In addition to the golf course, Atlantic Beach Country Club also offers a driving range as well as practice, pitching, and putting greens for golfers to use.

greens good, fairways all brown

The greens were in very good shape, however the fairways and rough must have been sprayed with Roundup. The course was very soggy and muddy.

Extremely poor shape

This course is in terrible shape. Yes, it is inexpensive to play here, but even for the price we paid, I woud not recommend this course to anyone in the current condition. It is just awful. I am afraid that, if no money is invested to improve the quality, management will find herself unable to escape the downward spiral of this course and it will end up bankrupt and closed.

Invest in a sprinkler SERIOUSLY!!!

The layout of the course is nice. Thats about the only positive thing I can say. They dont know what a sprinkler is. Course was dried out...even burned in areas. They could do a better job at mowing the course as well. Driving range is a joke! Spend a few extra dollars and go somewhere else until they renovate.

Beautiful layout sadly neglected

The layout of this course is fabulous and would be a great course if maintained well. It was sad to see such a beautiful course being neglected and run down. I guess the economics can't justify full maintenance. A real shame in this case. Would play again though because was fun to play in spite of the poor condition.

A lot of potential

Excellent layout and overall good value for the price. Book on golf now for the best rates. The course needs work and more yardage markers. The rough is patchy at best and the fairways are okay. The greens have been renovated and have a good feel to them. The only course in Jacksonville that you never get backed up on. It's almost always wide open. Again, if the course had more attention it could be a fantastic experience.
