Great fun.

My son was home from the Navy on leave and wanted to play a round of golf with the old man. I went with him instead and showed him how the game is supposed to be played. We had great fun and made a few good memories. The carts were clean, the course was well maintained and the staff was great. We moved along well till the last couple of holes on the back but that could not be helped. The greens were fast and in very good condition. We also ran in to some other Golf Now guys and hooked up with one on the first tee. He had a good time too.

First time

I loved this course.What a breath of fresh air to play a course that gives you room to drive the ball and doesn't have water on every hole.Loved the big old oak trees and the wildlife.The greens were in great shape and rolled true.I just wish I could afford to live right on the course.

nice layout

The tee boxes, fairways and greens were in good shape. I had an 8 am tee time and was able to tee off early but they were mowing and fertilizing the greens in front of me. July in florida at a golf course is busier in the am than the evening so perhaps they should change there maintenance times if possible. The staff was very friendly amd i would play this course again when i am in the area.

Gainesville Country Club – A Fresh New Look. A Fresh New Start

Since its opening in 1963, the mission of Gainesville Country Club has always been the same: To offer its members a lifestyle that includes high quality recreational facilities, member services and social opportunities in an open, friendly and family-oriented environment.

The golf course is a special part of the equation here at Gainesville Country Club. It was originally designed by architect George Cobb and opened in 1963. In 1992, Mark McCumber and Associates rebuilt the greens and brought them up to USGA standards. Playing anywhere between 5,163 and 6,866 yards, the course is well suited for anyone from beginner to touring professional.

While there are many outstanding holes, my favorite is the first hole, a dogleg right, par 4, that plays 399 yards from the White Tees. Number one portrays the challenge of the course and brings several elements into play: elevation changes - which are prevalent here - water and sand. You’ll need to avoid the trees on the right side of the fairway off the tee if you’re going to get off to a good start. Favoring the left side gives you a good approach to the green which sits well below the fairway. Your approach shot is played downhill, over water to a large green, well bunkered on the left. A very challenging and scenic opening hole that sets the stage for what’s in store!

Most of the members I spoke with favored Number 16, a short par 4 that plays slightly uphill to a well contoured green surrounded by bunkers. Most players will need to fly the ball onto the putting surface. The green features a lot of undulation and can be tricky depending on pin placement.

One of the more interesting features of the course is the monster moss-draped oak tree that sits between #16 green and #17 tee. Some of the members told me the tree is over 200 years old and has been hit it least twice by lightning. Its massive branches stretch down into the ground, making for some incredible photo opportunities.

Presentation is everything and the food at Gainesville Country Club is not only exceptional, it looks great when it arrives at the table. Little touches such as shaved Parmesan cheese on the French fries add a nice touch. The food is so outstanding, I saw a table of 18 women in the dining room and not one was eating a salad! Pretty impressive! The head waiter Phillip has been there for years and practically knows every patron by name. If you’re unsure of what to order, he’s a great help and will never steer you wrong.

Gainesville Country Club is pulling out all the stops when it comes to attracting new members. The grand opening of the new clubhouse is set for May 17th and beginning that day for a limited time, GCC is offering a “Summer Preview Experience” that will let non-club members +see firsthand all that this private club has to offer on an “a la carte” basis with limited restrictions. The program will run from April 24th – October 15th and prospective members will have access to all club social events, dining services, the pool facilities and tennis as well as complimentary Junior Golf and Tennis programs. This is a great opportunity for those who are thinking about joining a private club to experience Gainesville Country Club.

Bermuda rough

Nice course and great value on GolfNow. Lots of recent rain made cutting the roughs a difficult task to keep up with. Greens were slow but rolled well.

Exclusive private club in Gainesville

Played here with a longtime friend that is a member here and really thought the course was in unreal shape. I have been around some great tracks including TPC Sugarloaf, East Lake, Harbour Town, and Kiawah Island but this ranks up there with the top courses definitely in Florida. The staff is some of the best I've been around and loved the whole atmosphere.

The practice facility where great pure green grass thick rough at the chipping area and great putting green. Mark Mucumber gave this course a major facelift back in 1996 and thanks to him there is now a great Lowcountry golf course. The buetifuel mossy trees and magnificent trees put the course together.

The greens where slippery and thought the bunkers where in great condition. (Pure white sand). The fairways where great and the rough was unbelievabley thick and gobbled up all balls that missed the fairways making it a great challenge to score. I ended up shooting one my best rounds of the year and enjoyed the whole expirence.
