South/North is one of three golf courses at Fernandina Beach Golf Club. The facility is home to three distinct nines that form three different 18-hole combinations. Winding through thick forests of oaks and pines, Fernandina Beach Golf Club's South/North course offers a glimpse at native Florida wildlife. The South nine depends more on accuracy rather than distance while the north nine, the shortest in length of the three, features undulating greens. Water hazards also come into play throughout the golf course. Fernandina Beach's 27 unique holes are made even more appealing by the affordable rates and convenient proximity to Jacksonville and the beach.

Nice Course

We played this course twice while staying on the Island. Nice course and an even better price. Get out early to beat the crowds. Great new practice facility. Will definitely be back.

Fun round of golf

I was pleasantly surprised! I assume like most municipal courses that money is tight. From what I saw and experienced this staff is getting the most out of what money it receives. Not in perfect condition but very, very playable with no major issues. I think most golfers would enjoy a round here.

greens are in good shape, but tees and fairways not

every hole had 2 groups waiting on boxes while a group was in fairway and another on the green. and they wouldn't open up the south course. waited 45 minutes to tee off at the turn. greens were in great shape. but tee boxes and fairways were full of weeds and looked bad.
that being said it was still a nice play for the money.
after we checked out the toptracer driving range.
I could have spent the day in there. wow that alone is worth the money and the time.

ROBBERY

This course looks like a cow pasture with greens. Blaming the storm is not acceptable because the issues were caretaking in nature. I would not play this course again.

Worst course in America

Where do I start - first, could not make a tee time on the phone but only on Golf Now. Staff clearly not aware of policies and attending to island residents.

Upon arrival, we were directed to the South nine. There are theee 9-hole layouts and they sent everyone to the same tee?? Started almost 15 minutes late.

Pace of play was brutal…not the fault of the threesome in front of us, just packed with slow and inconsiderate players and NO Marshall anywhere.

Finally - conditions (if you could call it that) were just above pasture quality. Every tee box a weed pit, dead spots through the fairways, and the absolute worst greens I’ve ever played.

I get it - it’s a muni, money is tight. I love golf but this place deserves to be turned into more condos. Save your money and go anywhere else…or the beach.

Great course

Had a lot of fun playing his course. Great challenge without too much penalty for bad shots. Trees are in line of a couple drives that make it tough to drive the ball. Overall a great course and will definitely be back.

Decent value

Course is in ok shape. Fairways and greens could definitely be better. One thing we noticed was that the greens from the West course were at least twice as fast as the North course. Took a few holes to get used to it. Overall, we had fun and it is a good value. Will definitely play again.
