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.

Whoever designed this course probably didn't put all those cart paths winding through the middle of this thing, but simply that element turned me off. The back nine was infinitely better, but even at $20 a round, I will go to NAS JAX or Kings Bay well in advance before hitting that course again.

This little course (only about 6,500 from the tips) is a favorite. Wind can make it all you want. The conditions are almost always excellent. Usually during weekday afternoons the course is pretty wide open. On this day, once we got through the first 4 holes we felt like we owned it!

Thankfully the normal wind was down since the temp was only about 55-57. Course was in its usual very nice condition and due to weather we cruised around in about 3 1/2 hours.

I have mixed feelings - these are by far the nicest course conditions I've played in Florida. Sweet, fair greens and fairways although the layout isn't very interesting.

The negative is that as others noted - if you landed a HotDeal you're not as welcomed. You're going to be grouped with others who made that deal and expect a slow 4 hour round.

Thats lessening my rating a bit on an otherwise great golfing experience

After a full day of rain on Thanksgiving the course was fully soaked, cart paths only. It also lived up to it's name, Windy Harbor. As the round was being played the weather became sunny and perfect. Had it not been so wet the course would have been a great play. The course conditions are in good shape. I will play again and again.
