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.

Golf at a Good Price

The course is improving from 1 year ago but still has a long way to go with further improvements. Unless the City of Fernandina Beach gives more money to become a better course, which would increase revenues, improvements will continue to be limited.

Staff is very helpful and friendly and they are doing what they can with limited resources.

Overall, for a lower price round of golf vs. other nearby courses, this course is worth trying.

Rough shape

West course was decent but, the south course is really in bad shape. Won’t be back. It’s been about 15 years since I have been out there. Might be forever before I go back.

Good for a turist

Relaxed course, well maintained. At the time that I played the greens were slow needing a grass cut.

Great Value

Played late morning mid week with a very good Hot Deal rate. Old growth municipal golf course in very good condition, played North then West courses. General appearance was very clean and well maintained. A few fairways a bit dry given the typical hot weather this time of year. Greens are in great shape. Played all 18 holes just under 3 hours.

Ether than expected

I have played here before and the last time I played, about 6 months ago, the fairways were not very manicured. The greens were not in good shape and the rough was mostly dirt. What a difference this time. They were all better and got in a good round. Nice clean up. Keep it up.

Fun course

It was a pretty busy course when we went. I think it took us 5 hours to play the west and south courses.

The west course was well kept. I don’t recall a tee box or green in bad condition. Most of the holes are straight shots.

Some of the holes on the south course need the tee boxes re-sodded, but most of the greens were good with some rough spots.

It’s right next to the airport so if you don’t like seeing/hearing airplanes while you you play you may want to reconsider, but we enjoyed watching them. Overall we had a great time.

Rain has helped the course conditions since a few months back.

Great hot deal pricing. Greens were in good shape. Could use some grass manicuring and trimming around the greens and traps.

Horrible conditions

The tee boxes were only dirt. The greens have weeds growing everywhere. The regulars are rude. This course needs to be shut down and renovated

Course review

This course is in terrible condition. For the money this is one of the worst courses I have ever seen. Cost over $55 to play and the fairways, roughs, and tee boxes were garage. Maybe for $20 it wouldn’t be bad.
