Apathy

This is a review of the range. Unfortunately, apathy is setting in, after significant funds were spent to double the number of hitting bays and add a fancy mobile cover.

The basics need tending to - for starters, having predictable hours, and management (care). Intermittent electrical and drainage problems are causing it to be regularly closed or limited in operation. Litter is not regularly picked up. The putting green, practice bunker and chipping area are really rough. Areas of wetlands that are clearly in hitting range are not netted, I assume causing substantial losses of range balls. The range itself has become barren mud - drainage issues, a range picker cart/machine that is too rough on the ground, lack of turf management experience? I don't know, but so many other ranges have figured out how to grow grass on and pick balls from a range, even during our wet summers.

Range mats under the cover need to be hosed off every day if not multiple times a day. Get rid of the "mats only" signs everywhere -- for all intents and purposes, this is a mats only range that that is ok. Signs on the door saying "help wanted" and "mats only" would be right at home on the ClubProGuy's twitter feed.

Or, just close the whole thing so that the private sector will have enough of a market to open a different range in the southside of Jax that caters to golfers. There can be huge crowds at times, notwithstanding the limitations of the range. Look at what Seattle's public golf ranges are like - a thousand times better. Or look at how well Jacksonville's Bent Creek is managed on a limited budget, with a lighted, all-grass range.

Sorry for the negative review and I will certainly give a more positive one if things turn around. It is such a strategic location for a nighttime golf range and I think it will have strong support if maintained.

Great practice course

This is a very good practice facility. Conditions around the greens are not great but a great way for you to practice about any kind of shot over a four hole course this is a very good practice facility. Condition are a great way for you to practice about any are shot over a four hole course. Practice putting green is great along with the practice chipping green before you go on the four hole layout .

Perfect weather

Easy and fun for the golfer in a time pinch

Took my almost 4 year old son to this course and we walked it. Short greens with no need to bring your driver but it was a fun little jaunt and a great way to get in a few holes when you're in a crunch.

Great day to golf

I had not played this course in quite some time. The course was in the best of shape. The bunkers were poorly kept. They were hard, very little sand and more like mud.

We are very lucky to have a practice facility like this. It offers beginners a chance to develop their games before venturing out on a regulation 18 hole course. The course is scenic and challenging which will give you a nice workout by walking it a few times. Greens are just like what you'd find on a decent course. Tee boxes need work, though.

Fantastic for what it is!

Not an 18 or even a 9 hole course. However, it is four practice holes that can be played in a variety of ways. Three par 3 holes that can be played very short or very long. One hole can be played as a par 4 or a par 5, with or without a dogleg right. You can play them as many times over as you want so it is easy to string together 18 holes. The course is in great shape--fairways and greens are excellent. Have to walk it though, but that is pretty enjoyable as well. Great driving range, putting green, chipping green, and bunker. Kind of hard to argue with any of that, especially when you book it as a $9 Hot Deal.

not a course

This facility should not be listed as a 9 or 18 hole track since it doesn't have 9 or 18 holes. It only has 4 holes.

Excellent for practice round

UNF GolfPlex is an excellent facility for those looking for a quiet, comfortable place to practice under real game conditions. The facilities include a driving range, putting, chipping/pitching, and sand trap practice areas. But what makes GolfPlex different to other golf facilities is that you can also practice your game under real golf conditions in the 4 holes range. You can play these 4 holes from different tee boxes set up to provide a variety of distances and angles. You can create your own golf course and play, or simply concentrate on certain areas of your game.
