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.

Horrendous Conditions

There was no practice range, the turf conditions from tee to green are the worse I’ve experienced anywhere. The cart path had large chunks of asphalt missing every few feet. Signage was missing. Folks in the ProShop were very nice and friendly.
Given those conditions, it was way overpriced despite being the cheapest course on the Island.

Horrible service

No range, no tee times, no toppings for hotdogs, one 9 closed, waited 20 min behind 4 groups of singles and doubles! Get a starter and make people golf together instead of saying all tee times are booked! The pro or golf club manager is extremely rude and acted like he didn’t care what you thought. You should listen to your customers and not talk when they are giving you advice! Fairways and rough are horrible and the greens are way too fast for a city course.
This could be a really nice place but you gotta treat your paying customers with respect! I’d much rather drive to ga and play on the navy base where everything works and is available to use!

Nice winter treat

Bright sunny day with a bit of chill. Nice smooth round 3.5 hours. Greens were fast but got a tip from grounds crew to watch for speed.

Getting there, but not yet

The entire course is getting there, but still has a way to go. Driving range and putting practice area still closed, but you can see progress of renovations. The North course is still closed, and their traffic is too much for number of daily golfers. It is SLOW PLAY!! The staff is nice and atmosphere teaches some patience. I plan to try it again in a few months.

Well, at least GolfNow saved us on the greens fees.

First time I was glad a round was rained out after 11 holes. Lost more than one ball within 10-15 feet of the fairway in the very rough rough.. First three holes or so were in decent shape. From there, the rough got more overgrown, there were more bare patches in the fairway, and the tee boxes became more bare and chewed up. Greens were relatively true and the only part of the course I felt was at least consistently playable.

To be fair. the. North 9 was closed for repairs, so there is hope for the future. The course needs some TLC.

Not the Florida course I expected or hoped for.

Average course with basic layout. Needs a lot of care and money poured into it to improve it, but being owned by the city...that likely won’t happen. North 9 holes were closed for construction, but by the sounds of it their plans are to really revamp that 9.

Staff was friendly and food/drink options were plentiful and not super expansive, so that was a plus.

Would’ve liked more water or an island green or something to make you think you were playing on an island in Florida.
