The East/South at St. Johns Golf Club is comprised of two distinct nines that feature a varied landscape of Florida wetlands, towering pines, and native foliage. The third nine, the North, allows the club to have three different 18-hole combinations. The golf courses also home to an abundance of native wildlife, further enhancing the beautiful natural setting. East/South features mounded fairways and large greens. A notable hole on the East nine is the challenging par-4 sixth, it requires a carry across a lake that stretches nearly all the way to the elevated green where there is a treacherous pot bunkers awaiting.

I have played here many times and have enjoyed it. The course is fair and fun. But the past couple of times I have played here, the greens have been trash! Most notably #15 look like someone dig up have the green and replaced it with dirt. But 15 wasn’t the only one. The course in general was ok but not in the condition you would expect for mid-late April in FL. The greens that weren’t trashed were painfully slow.

The fairways are very nicely laid out and well maintained. Some water and woods but not to much to make the round very difficult. The greens were in repair season when I played so there was a lot of sand on them.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. I will play there again when I return next year.

It was a windy day in the eighties. Tee boxes and fairways were great condition with ample landing area. There were several tempting water shots. Greens were a little thin on grass. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to playing this course again.

There is so much excess sand in the traps...really makes it a sand dune....many of the greens are beginning to fail sine the heat is starting to kill th winter cover grass...we look like we are in trouble...hopefully not....The excess sand needs to returned for a credit from the bender or taken to our beaches were it would be appropriate...

Love the layout love the peaceful atmosphere out there! Just the greens are always slow. They were very inconsistent bumpy and fury. Otherwise it’s a great track.
