Carved from a forest of pines and winding through wetlands and lagoons, St. Johns Golf & Country Club offers a scenic 18-hole round located between St. Augustine and Jacksonville. The course features tree-lined fairways and large, fast greens. There is also the occasional two-tiered green to look out for. Water hazards come into play throughout and there are several well-placed bunkers. Depending on how the wind is blowing, the course can range from being gentle to very demanding. Six sets of tees make the course accessible to players of all skill levels. In addition to the course, St. Johns Golf & Country Club also offers extensive practice facilities including a 10,000 sq. foot putting green, chipping green, and a double-sided driving range.

Course in Great shape - but very crowded

The course was in absolutely fantastic shape, the greens in superb condition. So with great weather and a course in excellent shape - you have to expect all tee times will be completely filled ... and they were. Surprisingly the round was played in 4 +35 , so kudos to the golfers for doing their best to "keep things moving".

Memorable experience

Course layout was exceptional. Construction on cart paths made navigation tougher than normal. Greens were top dressed throughout the course. Pace of play reasonable and staff friendly.
Nice driving range and practice area.
This course is worth the effort to play it.

St Johns Golf & CC great course

SJGCC has a great layout & challenging, but fair holes. Greens are very fast right now, but fairways, bunkers & rough are well maintained. Highly recommend it for above aberage golfers
