Weekday afternoon round

I was by myself and zipped around until running into a couple of groups, but just replayed a couple of holes to give them time to get ahead. Greens in great shape, as was the rest of the course.

Overpriced

I can play a nicer course at Eagle Landing for a lot less. For a public course it is nice but way overpriced for the value.

Thank Goodness

The course has finally softened up after the renovations and you're able to hold the greens. Plenty of attackable holes, but you will still be penalized for errant shots. Now a Par 71, btw, for the folks administering the site.

JAX Beach Golf Club

The course is in great shape and the greens are Awesome. Despite some significant rain today the course was mostly firm and fast. At the twilight rate it’s a real bargain.

Awesome course

I’ve played this course a few times since the remodel and it’s always been in great shape. It recovered well from the recent aerification. Greens rolled smooth they are still firm but that’s due to the greens being new. Overall this is a great course that was in great shape. As a local I’m glad they renovated this course.

Excellent conditions

I strongly recommend any local golfers in the Jacksonville area to give Jax Beach golf club a try.. The greens roll really well, lots of grass around the greens along with the fairways tee boxes. You will not be disappointed in a really good round for good value of the money. If you played Jax Beach prior to the renovation, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Great Value, Terrible Booking Process

Course was in great shape. Luckily they were able to squeeze us in between groups because, despite my confirming through GolfNow booking, the club did not have me in their booking system. There was another couple that had the same Golf Now issue. I won’t be using GolfNow anytime soon - especially when booking this course - since it could happen again and it DEFINITELY will at this course. Call this club directly if you want to make sure you’re on their tee sheet!

Father’s Day Golf

The course is in good shape!
The GPS system on my cart never worked!
I didn’t notice until heading down the 1st fairway.
I didn’t go back as I did not want to cause a big delay.
I suggest having the starter ask each group as they arrive on the 1st tee box if their GPS system is functioning properly.
Also I never saw a “beer cart” selling on course beverages.

Lush course with great layout and challenging greens

Love this course. Fairways are lush and green. Greens recently punched but they are not bumpy and roll true, though a bit slow. Greens are hard. You will rarely see a ball mark. Challenging to land on the green and stay on the green unless you approach from the right spot.
