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 and in equal playing condition. The greens were rolling fast and true...thankfully...so I could get more comfortable as the round progressed. Challenging layout that was a good test. The staff is friendly and organized. Play here and you won't be disappointed.

The pace of play was pretty good but we did have to wait on a few holes. The greens were very fast and incredibly difficult to read. I would say it was just me but none of our foursome putted well. Maybe the time of year but it was almost impossible to stop a putt. Great Course.

Wintering in the St Augustine area now for the past five years and this venue has never let me down. Every year this course matures, greens are excellent for the time of Jan, Feb and Mar. Fairways came in early based on early heat streak in Feb. The staff is most excellent and friendly and very very accommodating. In all my travels this year this was the most played by me and most rewarding. Facilities for practice are very good, starter has things organized and there is presence on the course to keep things moving along.

Hats off to this group and again when I return in January 19' you will be getting my loyalty and playing time

Play here frequently. Weather was cool and winds on back nine were 20mph but with higher gusts.

Interestingly that day the course was also hosting an USGA qualifier

Very tough pin positions and their usual fast greens

Traps were prepared for event

Have never eaten in clubhouse by choice

Cart girls always polite as are the guys manning starter shack and cleaning clubs

Always worth a round if you are in town

I’ve heard how good this course is from local players. It had to be good to live up to the hype... and it did! Very welcoming staff (they tightened a club head for me),nice practice area and everything is quality and well maintained. The course is well designed with a great balance of sand, moguls,and water hazards coupled with really fast and true greens and generous fairways. I will play this course every chance I can.

5 Star all the way. The conditions were great and it’s a great layout. Just an awesome golf course without any resort feel. Best bang for your buck course I’ve ever played. It was $45 or so and I preferred it over TPC Sawgrass Dye’s Valley and Slammer and Squire. It’s a must when you’re golfing in St. Augustine. You won’t regret it.
