Love This Course
Staff is friendly, conditions are great, and layout is fun and challenging. The only downside is sometimes the pace of play is a little slow, but overall this is one of our favorites.
Fairways were in great shape. Staff was very cordial and helpful. Greens were a little slow. Bugs were terrible.
I would definitely recommend this course to my friends
Greens not great
Always an interesting course to play but the greens were really bumpy and slow with way too much grass on them. I know this is the way that this muni course chooses to do their maintenance but it makes for an unreliable playing experience once you get to the green. Otherwise, just fine.
This was my first time playing this course and I was pleasantly surprised. The course is extremely playable! Wide open fairways, big greens, and great views. The greens were very slow, but they still rolled true. Very scorable course. Played on 4th of July and two of us played 18 in 3.5 hours. No beverage cart, though. I would definitely play here again.
Hottest day on record for 2019. No cart girl, no ice, no food. Not very friendly for a holiday golf round.
Best kept secret
I've worked in St Augustine for 8 years and had never played this course. I regret waiting that long now..
The fairways were in excellent condition, the greens were probably slow for some tastes but putted true and the layout, design and multiple tee options made it challenging and fair for all skill levels.
The staff did a good job of policing the 1st tee and getting groups off in the right order at the right time, which can be a real problem at many courses in North Florida.
Bring your bug spray, but its Florida so that should be a given.
This was a very pleasant surprise.
Fairways best shape ever..greens need their annual spot help
Fairways maybe The best shape they have ever been excepts for some crab grass and the greens are overall good but the normal annual problem areas are back...still love the course
1 hour to course from home. while a OK course, nothing special. Staff friendly and accommodating.
Rain delay. Restaurant closed. 15th hole closed, 4 par 3's on back side (as I recall).
While we enjoyed playing somewhere different, frankly, it was not worth the drive, many courses in my area of same quality.
If in the area and looking for a reasonable course to play, I would recommend. We did like the lay out.
Nice little public course.
Nice course when it’s dry. If it has been raining forget about it, the course does not drain well. Also, the greens are a bit sketchy in some spots but all in all a good value for the money. I enjoyed My round and the staff was very friendly. Both times I wad there The cafe was closed and no on course beverage cart is provided so bring your own.
Poor Greens and Temporary Holes.
Was told the greens were punched 2 weeks earlier, which wasn't a problem. However they were bare in spots and very shaggy making them extremely slow. Would recommend playing elsewhere until they get the greens in shape.
A great challenge
This course is open enough for the average golfer. There are many elevated greens, most protected by either sand or water. It is challenging but fun.
Best Bang for the Buck
The prudent gents at this course actually demonstrate diligence in maintaining and enjoyable atmosphere, via the condition of this course. Now, If I could get my focus and muscle memory trained to my liking, I'd be getting more pars and a few more birdies. :D
Good track needs some T L C
I loved this course. Decisions need to be made for the good of golf and it's clientele. Putting the restoration on the long finger never works. Needs a lot of tender loving care to bring it back to where it was. Yours and golf Tom
Needs work done on all greens and tee boxes. Advise on fact 15 hole out of play.
must have got there at shift change for the starters, neither one of them had a clue what was going on. the pace of play was stupid slow, saw carts going over tee boxes and within INCHES of greens....is there anyone ther that gives a Sh.. about the course or GOLF? holy sh...…....folks GET IT TOGETHER OR CLOSE...….
NIce course, Rough Greens
The greens were aerated a few weeks ago. Greens are still tough to play.
Maybe better in a few weeks.
