Revitalized Course Excellent

The updated/ revitalized course is perhaps the best public course I’ve played on. Clubhouse, cart and starter Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Carts with electronic range finding touch screens for planning shots were a plus

Horse shoes, hand grenades, and putt putt Jax beach golf

Course is in great shape but really close holes and ball runs off...Still putting two people in cart not supporting states distancing requirements...They extended pvc green cups...Kind of dumb....Other courses have simply raised the bottom of cup so you can putt out...sounds like it is someone’s weird approach to support virus mandates but then they are putting 2 people in a cart...must be that in Jax Beach one person is in charge of “holes” and someone else in charge of carts....absent management is often an issue...????could it be...message is don’t put your fingers in the same hole but snuggle up in cart until next opportunity...sorry couldn’t pass it up...
good maintenance of course...

New layout is great.

If people would learn to repair their ball marks this place would be nearly perfect for a municipal. Love the new GPS enabled golf carts.

Paid for eighteen holes and only played nine. Course conditions were great. Pace of play was extremely slow. Cost 40$ to play, not worth it. Other than the good course conditions, the speed of play was slow and the biggest reason I didn’t play the other nine holes was because they pulled half the sleeve of the cups(or holes) out so you couldn’t putt the balls in the holes. COMPLETELY RUINS THE WHOLE POINT OF GOLF !!! Was a MAJOR buzzkill, lost interest in playing,. ABSOLUTELY BLEEPING STUPID. Won’t play there until they put it back the way it should be. Don’t try to use the corona virus as an excuse to ruin golf at what is usually a good place to play. Lost my business for now.

Great golf with my grandson

It's Brody's birthday. He just turned eleven. I gave Brody a round of golf at Jax for his birthday present. Many thanks to Kevin at check in. When I told him about Brody's birthday he said wait right here. He came back with two new golf towels for Brody and I. He also gave Brody a golf book and wished us well on this special day. To make things even better, we were paired with a true gentleman named Jack. We had a wonderful day together. Kevin truly was a class act. I'm from Canada, but I'll be back to Jax golf. I would recommend this track if you are in the Jacksonville area. Thank you Jax golf !!!

Definite do over

This a great course and it was in very good condition. The greens were great, fast and very tricky—undulations with significant drop offs. Just enough water to keep it interesting. They even have course layout with GPS on the carts! The staff was very friendly and so were the people I met in the course. Very relaxing round. Will definitely be back!

Loved it. It's a fair course. Definitely water on this course that can get you in trouble. Greens can be tricky. Some infinity edges that my ball rolled right off and I to water. That was no fun, but I gotta hit better shots. Now that I know that about the greens, I'd take less shots at green and more rolls onto the green. I am going to try to play it again before I leave Jacksonville.

Charged more upon arrival

I was charged more at the coarse then what was told to me upon booking. It would be nice if you all would get on the same page. Rather the the bait and switch feeling that doesn’t sit well. Is it the golf now app, the golf coarse or the attendant at the desk making sure he gets a tip?? Somethings just don’t add up. Aside that, it was a good day

Good Public Course

First time I'd played Jax Beach since the reno. Course layout changes were interesting and made sense. Greens were is pretty good shape although course gets a lot of play and there were lots of ball marks. Fairways were not as good, lots of threadbare patches and unfilled divots.

Great day

First time I’ve played this course in years and since the renovations. Course was in fantastic shape. Love what they have done and glad I played. I will be back soon. Hopefully, the wind won’t be blowing in 30 mph range like today.
