The Golf Club at South Hampton was designed to give every golfer appropriate risk-and-reward opportunities that supply both encouragement to beginners and challenges for more advanced players. The slope and contour of the course’s landscape is its trademark with strategic mounding and over 60 contoured bunkers that emphasize the terrain’s natural undulations. The course features rolling fairways and massive greens. There are also sixteen large lakes that come into play throughout. The signature hole is the tremendous par-5, 17th, which is a scenic hole that features a lake, fairway bunkers, and a breaking green. Although the course is a challenge, there are six sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels.

NEED A STARTER TO MONITOR PACE AND COURSE MANAGEMENT

Can’t play this course anymore due to pace of play. Nothing is monitored in terms or group sizing or accurate tee times. Gave this place another shot after 5 months thinking they may have changed but left disappointed again today. It took 4 hours to play 13 holes....

Best place to play for your money

The course is wide and forgiving. Always a great option to play and the staff are always courteous and friendly. I especially enjoy Dennis the starter, he always has great jokes and makes the start of your round enjoyable!!!!

Thank you to the ladies at the bar and the cart girl , for always making sure we are taken care of. If I could give 10 stars I would!!!

South Hampton

Always fun to play here. Requires good ball striking and you will use every club in the bag. Greens were arerrated and top dressed but I knew that going in. At this time of the year this is typical for most northern Florida courses. Played in just under 3 hours from the black tees 6400+ yards which is a good distance at my age. Nice day. Recommend this course.

Aeration

Booked the course knowing that the greens were just aerated but was not informed at booking that we needed to play the front 9 twice because they were still aerating the back 9 holes. Wasn’t told this until we arrived at the Pro Shop.The cost to play this format was not reduced.

Much improved

This course has improved greatly from earlier this year. A few greens still have some spots that are rough, but getting better every week. The fairways are plush and the layout is fair with plenty of tees so you can play the length that fits your abilities. Enjoy!

Good Course - slow play

Course is in better shape. Some greens and tee boxes still need help.

Pace of play was so slow and unacceptable my cartmate left after nine. I left after 14 and 4.5 hours. Some tees and fairways we waited over 15 to hit shots

No ranger to move things along

Charged me for my 6 year old!

First and foremost, they charged me $30 dollars for my 6 year old to play!!!! Are you kidding me?! I have played multiple courses in the area, including Cimarrone right across the street, and have never been charged anything, let alone $30 for him to play. How many 6 year olds actually play a full 18 holes?! It seems to me they try to squeeze every dime they can out of you. Its apparent They aren't too worried about growing the game.

The members that play the course feel they can play at whatever pace they want. I skipped 6 holes and it still took me 3 hours to play!

The course was in good condition, minus the back nine being cart path only and the fairways being pretty darn soggy.

I will not be returning to the golf course, ever. The only reason I got the $37 green fee for myself was because I booked on golfnow. Why should we have to book online in order to get the best price? Its because they want to take advantage of the customers that don't use online booking. Had i just called and booked it would have been $55, which is way overpriced for this course. Don't waste your time going to this course. Play the much nicer St. Johns golf and country club down the road.

Only negative was the greens which were not quite back to "normal", but I believe it is only a matter of a few weeks.
We enjoyed the course.

South Hampton

nice layout, some large dog legs and a few small hills. bunkers place in optimal positions to be challenging. several risk/rewards hole. fairway were, nice tee boxs were in good shape. the only drawback was the greens had been cut. not aerated but striped about every 10 inches. still had some putting effects from that, lot of bounce and o speed. very slow. give it another 3 to 4 weeks and it will be in prime shape. 2nd cut rough was very full and made club selection more challenging. i enjoyed the course but lost 4 to 5 strokes on the greens.

Course good -shape - greens covering

The course itself is in good shape and appears well taken of for a semi-private course. The greens are definitely in recovery mode as several still had bald patches a majority were recovering from aeration. I'm assuming because of the recovery they were keeping the greens pretty long - slow putting was the order of the day.
