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.

Rain, thunder

Rain and thunder stopped us from playing. Since it was a hot deal from golf now, we evidently are not able to get our money back, even though we did not get to play. Hood course, great staff, in nice weather would be great.

Disappointing Greens

I’ve played here several times and always loved the quick and true greens at the course. The last couple of weeks the greens are no longer quick and are in fact bumpy. Perhaps they are letting them grow out so they’re better in the spring.

Course Condition

Two issues
One, I came up as a single and they sent me out with a couple who played only nine holes. There was no conversation saying he could put me in with another .So I was left as a single between two foursomes and there was no starter to talk to at 3PM. The pro shop was very accommodating and charged me for 9 holes since I was not comfortable playing at a very slow pa e as a single
Two, the green conditions were not very good with a lot of new grass coming up. I would like to play it when conditions are better

St John's Golf and CC

Several of the greens were very suspect. Almost as if they had a fungus on them. They still rolled surprisingly well and were as fast as any I have played in recent memory. Gave it three stars only because of what is probably a temporary greens problem and the cost. Not the best value @$75 in my opinion considering the greens.

Greens not fair

This course always has fast greens but they are beyond fast now.. The greens dont have much grass to slow the ball down. In addition they were aerated yesterday.

Greens Disappointing

Very nice layout and design. Greens were in very poor condition. No grass on most of them and fungus evident throughout greens. There was a group of five who arrived just before our tee time and was split into two groups pushing back our tee time. It was a five hour round with waiting at each hole. May try it another time of year when greens could be in better shape.

Greens

Greens are fast but not in as good condition as they had been. It appears there may have been ponding during the rain on some of the greens that caused some rough spots.

Great layout, lousy weather

I've played SJGCC around 12 times, many of them in Monday fund raising tournaments. We played in winter, on Christmas Eve this time in an on-again/off-again drizzle that kept us on 'cart path only' which made the round a slug. I was surprised at the good condition of fairways and especially the bunkers which were all tended and full of sand. My big surprise was the greens which have always been outstanding but now are fighting invasion by poa annua and fungus, especially the practice green. I remember the first time I played SJGCC within the first week of it opening and the greens were pro. Firm, fast, and like carpet. Typically greens are at the top of the budgetary ledger and greens keeper's priority list, but here the greens do not match the rest of the course in conditioning. The layout is great with many memorable holes and the employees have always been top notch. Would join SJGCC if I lived closer as its a great track, highly recommended!

Rained out after 6 holes. Cart path only---way toooo wet

We enjoy this course, but unfortunately today was not good. Cart path only created a problem, followed by more rain, wind and cool temperatures. We had to leave after 6 holes.
