Nice Value

Had not played in three years. Wanted to play a course without a lot of water hazards, and wide fairways.
Greens need to be cut, as they were very high and slow.
Typical Military course. Below average condition, but exactly as expected, and a good $ value, and close to home.
If you want a quick round, or either just starting, or have not played for awhile, I would recommend as you can work your way around the course without to much problem.

Frisbee Course. Not A Golf Course

Had To Wait On A Cart Because All The Carts Were Out. Once We Received Our Cart And Playing Hole Number 1 A Single Lady Golfer Goes To Hole #2 as We Where Leaving The First Green And Jumps In Front Of Us. Now We Are Waiting On Number 2 tee Box To Hit The Ball No More Than 50 Yards At A Time Down The Fairway. As We Finally Start To Tee Off There Is A Group Of Frisbee Players On The Right Side Of Fairway About 6 Carts Full With Foul Music And Foul Language screaming Out And Danceing On The Right Side Of Fairway. This Was Sickening As Well As My Friend Had His Little 4 Year Old Daughter With Him. This Is Suppose To Be A Golf Course Not A Vulgar Dance Club. Encounter This Several Times From Different Frisbee Groups Through The Whole Round. I Mean vulgar Danceing And Very Loud Music. Will Never Ever Go Back To This Frisbee Throwing Night Club. This Is Not A Golf Course Any More. Terrible Price For A Terrible Course That Allows This From Its Frisbee Players. Guess When You Dont Keep Your Course Under Control Your Golfers Dont Come And You Rely On This Kinda Trash. Worst Round Ever.

Hands down worst course in north florida

It used to be playable.but too many bad experiences..this one was by far the worst..no fairways..an not exagerating.its lawn grass an dirt..used to have ok greens.those now are gone.i kept telling myself as i paid 30 bucks an was 1st out gate at 7am to just play thru at least ur by urself an no one in front.nice peacefull morning.meanwhile hole by hole on front nine impossible to use a wedge as every lie,either buried in lawn grass(middle fairway i mind you)or on hard pan......then this is the kicker.i get to #10 an 2 groups teeing off going down the hole..r u kidding me.its 8am.an u let people go off 10th tee..i completly wasted 30 bucks to go play non crowded golf an cdnt even get that let alone playable golf.an clubhouse response was uhhh duhhhh

City of Jacksonville should be Ashamed

The grass around this National Guard installation was very well maintained but the same can't be true about the golf course. The greens were spongy. This course reminded me of the field i used to practice on as a kid. This course has so much potential if the City would just put some money into it along with the seventies facilities. If you were in the military in the 70's and 80's you know what i am talking about. The fairways and rough were indistinguishable for the most part.

Come on City of Jacksonville where are the mowers??

When i started to play golf in the 70's i would go to an abandoned hole off the real course and practice for hours on end. This course needs tremendous money and personnel to bring this course up to par or in the vicinity. Just cutting the fairways would help tremendously. The facility are poor at best; it reminds me of some of the dumps overseas when i was there; gosh i hope i didnt get COVID19 or typhoid going to the restroom. The older man in the club house was very nice and had a tremendously nice demeanor about him. In closing, Jacksonville, Mayor, City Council put more resources into this course because it would be financially to your benefit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People will come if you just cut the grass and fertilize!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rough

If you can double bogey each hole on this course, you can par any other course you choose. Good "out of trouble" practice course.

Getting Better. Recommend

This course is getting a lot better. The greens are in great condition. Fairways still need some work, but overall they are putting in a lot of good work to maintain.

Fair course

If you want to just practice on cheap course on day this is ok.
You have to stick to the fairway, still high grass. You don’t get any help if you hit a low level ball it stops in the high grass. Green are slow.
After all for 12$ and a nice day it’s good exercise and good for your health.

Poor customer service

The lady was very short and unwilling to answer our questions. The course was not worth the money I was charged but the greens were fair. I will not be playing this course in the future.

It needs some major changes

For the price, this course is definitely not worth the value. Not when Bent Creek is in the same price range only a few miles away. I want to like this course. I enjoy the layout, the greens are extremely slow but they are good. The biggest issue is the fairways. Between big patches of sand and the terrible grass/weeds, it's not fun playing here. Good staff, solid practice facility but I can't pay for another round here.
