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.

Overbooked

On weekends they send groups off the front and back from 2-4. We played the front at a good pace but when we got to the turn the starter was gone and new groups were going off the back on their own backing everything g up. I am told they do this every weekend..

It’s too bad because the front was great. Greens were fast and true and course was in good shape. They are too greedy with squeezing as many rounds out of the course .

Excellent course in great condition

Very pleased with course condition and layout. A pleasure to play! Only negative was starters inability to adjust to lateness of groups. He held up play until every member of a group showed up! He should have let the next group go if they were ready. Result was we started 15 minutes after our scheduled tee time! Clear that up and everything is good!

Birthday round

The course was full as most would expect for a great course in the middle of winter in Florida. I was part of a foursome and we NEVER had to wait on any tee box or fairway! It was an awesome time. The greens was super fast and challenging. I loved every 3 putt, as I had a few. It was fair but the pin placement was for Sunday afternoon! Lol! it was a great way to spend a great day! Can’t wait to go back.

Nice course

This was the first time playing St. John’s Golf & Country Club. I have tried a few times but found it difficult to get the tee time I wanted. I’m glad that I got to play there yesterday. What a nice course and it was in good condition for January. The course is laid out nicely and is challenging but playable. The tee boxes are positioned to give players of all levels a fair challenge. It’s a pretty course. Some after, lots of traps. I played on a Sunday and the starter said that they had a full tee sheet. I didn’t doubt him since the parking lot was fairly full and lots of players around the clubhouse. We teed off right on time and played at a nice steady pace. The only slight hold up started on the 15th hole and even then we only had to wait about 5 minutes for them to clear. Overall, I liked the course, would recommend it and look forward to playing there again.

Rude Rangers

The course itself is a good course and was in good condition. However, for the price paid I expected a little more. The real downer was the rude on course staff, Mike specifically. The rangers kept trying to tell our group, with a 78 year old gentleman as part of the group, that we were two holes behind. This happened on both the front and back nines. On the back nine there was not anyone behind us and our group the teed off our round at 8:05 AM completed our round at 12:03 PM. The staff members around the cart return stated thei pace of play is 4 hours and 10 minutes. We finished in 3 hours and 58 minutes. Not sure how we were 2 holes behind, but finished in under 4 hours. The on course staff will make me go elsewhere to play in the future.

Great first time.

Overall a fun course that is challenging and approachable for newer players. A little on the pricier side, so I won’t be back often but looking forward to it when I do.

Best Value for the Money

Beautiful December day to play. Everyone at course was friendly and helpful. Biggest challenge on the course was the greens. Hold to hold greens on approach shots. Better to hit short and roll up on the greens. Putting was treacherous. .Downhill putts impossible. Better to have uphill putts. Outside of the greens, the rest of the course was nice and not very difficult. I would play this course again.
