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.

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.!!

Slow time at Jax Beach GC

Dunno if it’s that fall is now here but never expected Monday golf to be so busy. Seemed to be two sometimes three groups on each hole.

I appreciate a muni course and willingly deal with less than pristine conditions (although they are improving here) but I can’t deal with 5 hour golf when there are other options around at under 3.

Maintenance Needed

This could be a super course, the layout is good, but the condition has been poor for a number of years. I understand there will be major upgrades next year and I look forward to playing there after they are complete. One of the great things about this course is that it is easily walked and that is often hard to find in Florida, sadly.

Getting better

been playing here 4 months now and the course has improved - rough no longer crazy deep and fairways are acceptable

Staff is incredible as are the beer girls. Some 150 yd posts would be great.
