Fernandina Beach Golf Club is home to three distinct nines, the North, South, and West that make up three different 18-hole combinations. This 27-hole facility boasts a unique configuration on each of the nines for a truly diverse golfing experience. The North/West course at Fernandina Beach Golf Club combines the longest nine, the West, and the shortest nine, the North. The North nine features undulating greens and water hazards but the generous, wide-open fairways of the West nine make the golf course accessible to players of all skill levels. Native foliage in addition to towering oaks and pines throughout the course allow for a scenic escape in addition to an excellent round.

Everything but the tee boxes

I had a great time, just please for the love of god fix your tee boxes. Like hitting out of a sand trap. And if you’re going to have a ranger you should actually have him speeding up slow people, especially on a Saturday.

Convenient Location

Municipal course in a great location - just needs more TLC. Turf is pretty rough in places. BUt a great place to start the season for a northerner.

Badly in need of some TLC - such disappointment

I’ve played this course in the past and was disappointed that it was in such bad shape. Tee boxes are all dirt. No ranger on site for assistance and no cart girl for drinks. Food in clubhouse was expensive (hotdog $7.50) and drinks weren’t real cold. Just disappointed overall ☹️

Terrible

Should have done more research before playing. Half the tee boxes were just dirt, literally no grass on the tee box! Greens were not impressive. Wasn’t worth the $60 bucks to play.

Interesting course

Beautiful layout, lots of dog legs and narrow tee shots. Greens were great, tees and fairways need work. Cool layout and good price.

Below average golf course

Not much to say, this course is below average. The greens are ok but the fairways and rée off, needs a lot of loving and tender care.

Weekend Getaway

We were in the area for our Grandson's 1st birthday and also a weekend getaway. We booked our round on Golf Now to ensure we got the preferred tee time. Bery pleasantly surpised with the course amd all the nice people that worked there. The course has 3 nines (North, South, and West) we played the West and South. The xourse layoit was great and the surrounding area was beautiful. Unfortunately the tee boxes and fairways were not very good. Most boxes were dirt and fairways were not very good either. However, the greens were very nice. The ball held the greens and rolled out to the hole nicely. We will play there again when we return to the area to visit our family.

Nice layout needs help

Poorly maintained public course with good infrastructure needs lots of TLC. Fairways have limited playable grass. Traps are hard-packed with little sand. Greens are decent.
Staff was friendly and clubhouse is inviting.

I do like playing the course but there are many bare spots. Would be nice to have a little more grass.

Improving as the spring rains begin.

Greens were improved compared to a couple of months ago. Tee boxes need some attention.
Great layout and long challenging holes. Not bad for a municipal course,

Horrendous conditions

Absolutely the worst condition I've ever seen. Spend a few extra dollars and play somewhere else. I wouldn't play again if it was free.
