Rating 74.7
Carved from a forest of pines and winding through wetlands and lagoons, St. Johns Golf & Country Club offers a scenic 18-hole round located between St. Augustine and Jacksonville. The course features tree-lined fairways and large, fast greens. There is also the occasional two-tiered green to look out for. Water hazards come into play throughout and there are several well-placed bunkers. Depending on how the wind is blowing, the course can range from being gentle to very demanding. Six sets of tees make the course accessible to players of all skill levels. In addition to the course, St. Johns Golf & Country Club also offers extensive practice facilities including a 10,000 sq. foot putting green, chipping green, and a double-sided driving range.

Great Course

Beautiful challenging layout. Good test of golf. The greens as fast. Real fast. But they roll true. I’ll be spending less time on the range and more on the putting green there next time. 8-)

One of the Best in Jax-St Augustine

Course is in good shape. Conditions will improve rapidly as weather warms up. Greens were rolling good & fast. Fairways in good shape despite being February. Staff is always friendly and make non-members feel welcome. This is a great layout that all skill levels can enjoy playing - and challenging enough when played from the proper set of tees. I make sure to book this course every time I am in the Jax-St Augustine area.

Good weather sluggish round.

Had a great weather day. 80 degrees and partly sunny. Staff friendly and helpful. Course was in great condition. The pace of play was slow. Due to the terrific weather they may have overbooked the course. We started 10. Mins prior to our tee time but had to quit at hole 15 due to lack of light.Otherwise we enjoyed our round and will play there again.

Fast Fast Greens!

The course and the layout is very nice. The staff Is very supportive and friendly and we really enjoyed our round of golf. The pace of play was slow, at the Teebox we could see a foursome in the fairway, foursome on the greens and a group would be pulling up to the Teebox as we teed off. Pace was around 4hrs and 50min. I would recommend playing the course, just don’t be in a hurry! Make a day of it! O yea, greens are fast was told about a 13 or 14! A few more rounds and I might be ready for the Masters!

Xmas Golf

Played Xmas day on split tees off the back 9. Greens were very fast and bumpy making putting quite difficult. Played the back 9 in under 2 hours, it was great pace.

When we made the turn for the first tee it was backed with 2 groups on tee. One in fairway and one on green. After waiting for 20 minutes we left. They gave me a rain check for 9. They were understanding of situation

Beautiful course

The course was in great condition. A little sand on the greens was not enough to hurt play.

Very nice people who work there.
