Type Public
The newly revamped Jacksonville Beach Golf Club, built in 1959, is one of the only public access courses on Jacksonville's Beaches. The golf course was originally designed by Sam Snead. The changes at Jacksonville Beach Golf Club began with the rebuilding and modernizing of more than half the greens on the golf course, along with some new bunkers and bulkheads to add to the already beautiful look. The 18-hole golf course measures 6,510 yards from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 71.9, with a slope rating of 126.

Best Greens I’ve ever seen at a public course hands down! Everything was great! The cart attendants provided me with the best service possible. 10 out of 10.

Not as good as last time

I enjoyed playing here today however the fairways seem to have taken a step back from a few weeks ago. They are very dry and a bit difficult to hit from. The greens are still rolling fast and true and the bunkers are fluffy and easy to hit out of. The putting and chipping practice areas are nice. And the cart girl is very friendly.

Fantastic

We played there about 3 years ago and said we would never go back. The course was in such rough shape. 3 years forward and a complete renovation. Ranks as one of the best courses I’ve played. Hats off to the golf maintenance staff

very nice golf experience

if we could slow down the greens and speed up the rounds I'd give a perfect 10 !

To the reviewer who blamed the walkers - that's just not so. I played on a cold day when the crowds were down and I swear I got in 9 holes in 65 minutes - walking !

Its the crowds that keep things slow and one round we got stuck behind a foursome who were taking their sweet time lining up every putt for so long you'd think it was for big $$$ - they were in carts and we finished in 4:15

Fantastic improvements. Very slow pace

The course is beautiful! They did a fantastic job!! Pace is very slow!! Lots of walkers. 4 hours and 40 min two players, 18 holes. I think we’ll wait for the newness to wear off before playing there again. Too crowded! Too slow! They need the rangers out there making sure everyone is playing at a good pace

Redesigned and top notch

Worth the 9 mo wait - Tee boxes, fairways and greens are pristine. Even the carts are better! Greens are very fast but fair. Only neg is that with the popularity the pace of play has slowed - pretty much knew that’d be the case when I arrived to a packed parking lot.

Updated Course

This course is really nice, great improvement!

1st week open. Love the GPS carts but all the flags are white and there was no pin placement chart, so it was hard to know where the pin was on the green. Also don't plan on using your own GPS watch the new lay out is not updated yet.

Overall I was super happy with this course, Great work!!

Getting Better All the Time

The course is constantly improving from where it was just a couple years ago. Currently it is closed until September of 2018 for what they say will be a major renovation.

great little course

I played this course in the freezing rain, and it didnt matter! The greens rolled true, and the fairways allowed the ball to roll as it should. enough water and sand traps to keep it entertaining, but not frustrate. Precise shot placement will be rewarded, but it is a bit forgiving as well. This is a great course and better than most that charge higher. Staff was super nice! will definately play again if i am in the area, especially if the weather is sunny

Hard To Believe !

The course is in the best condition it's been in for several years so they're going to spend millions closing the course, tearing it up and redesigning the holes. All they need is a new irrigation system and some minor alterations to existing holes.

Changes to come

Enjoyed my round on a perfect day. Greens are much improved though It won't matter because according to most, they will be replaced starting in January.. Staff was friendly and helpful as usual. Nice layout and being so near the beach is always a bonus. BTW, I'm still looking for that course one reviewer said he could play in less than 3 hours.!!
