Windy Harbor Golf Club is a military golf course located at the Mayport Naval Station, it was formerly known as the Mayport Golf Club. The seaside course now takes its name from the blustery ocean breezes that sweep through the back nine. The golf course is narrow with tree-lined fairways and large, fast greens that are slightly sloped. There is also a defined cut of rough beside every fairway. Greenside bunkers and water hazards that come into play on nearly every hole make the course challenging for players of all abilities. Windy Harbor Golf Club also has practice facilities for golfers to use that include a driving range with grass and carpeted practice tees, a practice sand trap, and a large putting green.

Bad cart batteries

Our foursome required 5 different electric golf carts to finish 18 holes of golf. According to staff members, this is a growing problem.

Expired MWR Card

I was unable to play this fine course due to an expired MWR Card. Word to all, be sure to check the expiration date. The security folks would not issue a day pass. I have to go back thru the whole paper request process all over again. Obviously, there was no warning regarding expiration. I do enjoy the course. Good level of challenge and not too long. Good for average and older golfers.

Something to improve

The course is generally in great shape and fun to play. The one area of concern is bunkers. The bunkers are typically hard with little sand. This is the one area I would love to see improvement.....I'm in them often enough!

Love playing here

Great course layout. Front 9 is shorter than the back 9. Playing from tips is fairly easy on the front, alot longer on the back. No luck going out earlier than scheduled tee time if you book on GolfNow. Had to wait 30 mins for our tee time eventhough nobody else was scheduled in front of us..... I understand though. Love the course. Get your MWR card for free and get out there!

Sunday afternoon round with Dave

We flew around the course, which was in great shape (and we fixed ball marks, divots, etc. to try to keep it that way).

Course is in great shape right now!

One of the best ran government ran golf courses. You do need a MWR card to play on your he naval base. You can apply for one. Takes a few weeks. Free. And so worth it. Most expensive tee time I’ve ever seen is $28. Played it today for $10 (18 with a cart!) Right now the greens are pure and rolling smooth. Fairways and tee boxes are in excellent shape! Only thing it lacks is good bunkers. They have sand but are filled with seashells. (As you can tell it’s probably pulled from the naval harbor.) Overall this is a great little course. In great shape. And almost always a great deal.

Played here several times - but greens need recovery time

Have played here several times when the greens were in great shape! Looks as though they punched, sanded, and then cut them a little too short. Several greens were VERY thin. I think in a few weeks time they will be back up to good shape, but for now, little bumpy, fast because of thin, dirt-type areas with very little grass on many of them. Fairways and tee boxes in good shape. Fun layout, easy course ... not hugely long.
