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.

Terrible staff and customer service. Pro shop turned me away saying the course was closed at 5pm. Usually liked this course but will not come back nor will I recommend it to anybody.

Greens are great and the rest seems to be coming...

Great greens and they were working on the fairways so the course should be a+ in a few months. Great value, on phenomenal greens.

Great upgrades to the course

I played there about 2 years ago and it was avow pasture but with the new greens and bunkers it is a really good course can’t wait for the next phase of upgrades when they redo fairways and other areas that should be grass and not dirt...

A local gem at the beach

This course is newly renovated, and I was told that some of the holes were changed. I mention this because my Garmin GPS GolfWatch was frequently wrong with the yardage- so beware!

The course is in nice shape - lots of sand in the traps, and I saw today that the greens were recently aerated. I had the pleasure of joining two players who had played here before, and their course knowledge kept me on track all day.

There is quite a bit of water (of course, this is FL!) and a few crazy birds, but the greens are the real challenge.

Overall, I found the course an enjoyable challenge and will certainly visit again.

Great changes to course layout.

Really enjoyed playing the course with the new layout changes. The only problem I had was when the carts shut down when you were in a restricted area. I dont mean to say that this is not a great idea to keep the carts where they should be, but when the cart paths are not designated, it's frustrating when the driver has no idea which way to go to stay in the correct area.

9am foursome

As recent reviews have stated the course has been completely redone and it’s in great shape.

It was a gusty Sunday and four of us still played in about 4 hours. It rained the night before but the greens were firm and roll very true (the undulations in them make it comparable to pv inn nearby)

I think it is now the best public course to play in the Jax / beaches area. Highly recommended

Well done upgrade

Excellent value for the money got an 810 T time on a Friday and was paired with 2 gentlemen were very friendly and gracious . we got around in 3 hours in spite of my errant shots the course itself had excellent greens and was a pleasure to play. A bit wet in spots. staff was very pleasant from the cart personnel to the snack bar and pro shop. I shot above my handicap because of the challenges of dormant Bermuda rough.

Too slow to even finish 18

great improvements on the course - any overall negatives on the review is due to the 4 1/2 hour pace.

$20 on a nice course is a deal but when you only squeeze in 14-15 holes it becomes less so....

There were usually 3 groups on each hole - one on the green, one waiting in the fairway and us sitting on the tee.

Management needs to make 10 minute increments between tee times at least during peak days

Worth the wait

I swore off this course a couple of years ago but now I can’t wait to get back out there, great job! The new greens and improved course layout make this a fun and player friendly destination course. I love the new and improved putting and chipping greens the imulate the course greens to a tee also!

Nice redo of this course

The round was going great until we got behind a playing lesson with Mary and some kid and 2 other guys on hole 7 and we waited on them for every hole. There was a slow group in front of them and no ranger on course to move the pace of play along. Why would you give a playing lesson in mid afternoon on a Monday? Very disappointing

Course looks great!

Kudos to Jacksonville Beach residents for investing in the municipal golf course and making what are so many very positive changes. I recently played the course for the first time after the renovations and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Top of the list is of course the greens and all I can say is Wow! Also, while some holes have been shortened, the revised holes still pose a challenge and require some strategy. I will strongly recommend this course to fellow golfers.

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.
