Rating 69.9

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.

Average Course but has 3 Nine hole layouts

The course conditions need a lot of work. I know they are trying to address it as much as a municipal course can within the City budget. Staff is very friendly, I will continue to play there as one of my course choices.

Times gone by

This place would be GREAT if there was grass on more of the tee boxes and fairways. The greens were getting a little "weedy". Check out their putting green- pretty representative of the course. I've played there a dozen times and played the North course only once. Btw... been there a dozen times ONLY under $40- it's worth that, maybe worth a little less in the condition it's in.
The layout is pretty cool and it's a thinker's game- just be ready for dirt patches to cost you yardage- play your distances with only carry in mind.
This will not be the first course in the area I'll bring visitors to when showing off local golf.
I will say the staff is nice and friendly and the golfers there are super nice as well.

Horrible condition!

Course is in horrific condition. No grass in the fairways. Told me juniors play free after 1, changed their mind because grandson looks older than he is. Wouldn't let us start 15 minutes early with no one on the tee box. Ended up getting off late because a 4some teed off 5 minutes before our time. No starter, no one managing slow play. I'll never be back.

Great municipal course

Challenging and long from the white tees. Especially the 500+ yard par 5’s.
Great value using GolfNow specials.

worst course ever!

This is the worst course we have ever played. Nothing but mud and sand on some of the tee boxes. Fairways had a LOT of bad places that were unplayable,,, hitting off packed dirt. Often, little grass to hit off from. Trees growing out over fairways and tee boxes. Some ladies tees were in the rough. This course should not even be on your list of courses to play! I play about 4 times a week, a 7-9 handicap, and couldn't wait to get off course!

Great Value for 18 holes

FBGC is a great value for golfers looking to enjoy 18. They have three nine hole courses.

The course conditions are average and there really is no Clubhouse other than a cafe.

Not the course if you are looking for great course conditions and a 19th hole.

It is the good course for average golfers or those looking to not spend a lot to play.

Fernandina Beach GC, Amelia Island FL

Reasonably good greens. Fairways are, generally, thin...bare in many spots. Lots a trees. A chainsaw would be the ideal 14th club. Many bare to totally bare tee boxes.

A very friendly place, though. They seem to be very happy to welcome a person to the course. I do not always feel that way at many courses It is what it is. I have had a nice time every time I have played here. Everyplace else in the area is $30 - $70, possibly more, per round.

Good value

Price was good, the staff was friendly but was a bit disappointed. The fairways were good, as were the greens. However, if you got off the fairway they were in very rugged shape. In addition, the tee boxes left a lot to be desired. Especially the ladies tees. We played the West course nine and the South course nine.
