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.

Phenomenal place to play golf

Tee to green course conditions are great. A little wet in some areas but that’s Florida in the summer. Cart staff friendly, pro shop staff is great, and bar staff phenomenal too. I got the mahi tacos after a solid round of golf and they were beyond tasty. Can’t wait to come back already!

Great course

Only one issue with this course. There are no water coolers or ice for this course. If your reasons are pandemic related, then all rakes should be removed and the no touch mandate of the flagsticks should be part of your restrictions as well. Let’s be consistent so that it fits your narrative. There was only one beverage cart for both sides in the 94 degree heat.

Well designed course

The only negative to our round was the course was quite wet. Therefore, it was cart path only.

Assistants

Ron and Mike were very helpful. Ron met us with a cart while we were walking from the parking lot, carrying our bags. Mike did a great job making sure we had everything we needed. Ron even brought balls to the range because we couldn't get enough from the Pro Shop. Both were conversational, polite and professional.

August at Saint Johns Golf

The greens had been aerated recently but they were sanded perfect and the pots still rolled true and the greens were still fast it was absolutely wonderful that was the only bad part about the course if they weren’t sanded then it would’ve been perfect

Well worth playing

I was in St Augustine for the weekend and TPC Sawgrass Stadium course was $300 - $400+ to play so I came across this gem. This course was difficult. It had some tight fairways, plenty of water and sand. What made it more difficult was the fact there were storms rolling through around the area and the wind was a 2-3 club difference. The pace of play on the front 9 was very slow which was a surprise because the starters emphasized 2 hours max per nine and if you were not keeping pace, the ranger would move you along. That did not happen Due to the storms, the back 9 was empty! I will play this course again.

This course was set up nicely.

Really nice course but a little pricey for this time of year. Good layout and greens were in great shape. I enjoyed the round.
