About

Par 71
Length 6692

Rating 72.2
Type Public
Located just outside of St. Augustine, St. Johns Golf Club offers three distinct nines that meander through thick pine forests and native wetlands. South/North is one of three different 18-hole combinations at the club. Numerous ponds and native wildlife make the golf course as scenic as it is entertaining. One of the golf course's most notable holes is the par-5 ninth on the North nine. It requires a cunning attempt over water in order to score well. In addition to the 27 holes, St. Johns Golf Club also offers extensive practice facilities including a driving range, a two-tiered chipping green, and a practice putting green.

Just OK

Nice layout. Mediocre conditions. Probably be the only time I visit this course. The staff was great and pace of play was good..... until I ran into 2 VERY slow back-to-back groups. They wouldn’t even look back to see about playing through, which was frustrating. Ended up just skipping a hole and going around them. $40 is a bit much for a course of this caliber, but I did like the layout. Overall I’d rate it a 2.5 out of 5.

Course needs TLC

Used Golf Now to reserve tee times and checked the online course info and no mention of any issues with the course. Arrived a bit early so took advantage of the driving range, chip area and putting green. Driving range was fine, chip area was good, putting green was not the best. When ready we were told to start. Right off the 1st tee and to the green we noticed the greens had been worked on with quite a bit of sand making putting very difficult and choppy. All greens were the same and most fairways were being worked on and sloppy. There was no rhyme or reason to course play and had groups starting on top of one another. Way to fast and not managed correctly. Made for rushed play which ultimately ruined our game play. The worst round of golf I have played and the rest of my group felt the same. The best part of the day was when lighting interrupted and we all had to stop. Since we were already disappointed with the front nine we decided to not wait for what would have made for a long back nine and did not even care to ask for a rain check, not worth it. Until they get this course right I would not recommend spending the money. Do your research, call the course a head of time and ask about any issues with the course. It was my son's birthday present and he was appreciative of the gesture but had a horrible time which made me feel even worse.

A very well maintained course at a reasonable price.

Unfortunately, we had a sudden cloud burst which continued for an hour. The course was wet, but I had it all to my self. I have played this course many times over the years and always return with hopes of shaving off a few strokes. NOT TODAY!

Great Layout but greens still need help

I love the layout and the overall course is in great condition the greens are still rough but playable. Very slow greens but I still love this course I just look forward to getting greens repaired or replaced. Ripe and Ready bar and restaurant is excellent with everything fresh and even the fries are cut fresh.

Great Public Course

This course is a well run and well maintained, with very good layout and friendly helpful staff. Need I say more? I just found out they are closing in January 2019 to totally re-work the course, so you better play it before January, as it will be closed 9 months.

Healing Course

Over the past months, the greens have looked bad, but the staff has done a wonderful job of bringing them back to life. The fairways and tee boxes have always been good. Great job and looking forward to my next round!
