The Golf Club at South Hampton was designed to give every golfer appropriate risk-and-reward opportunities that supply both encouragement to beginners and challenges for more advanced players. The slope and contour of the course’s landscape is its trademark with strategic mounding and over 60 contoured bunkers that emphasize the terrain’s natural undulations. The course features rolling fairways and massive greens. There are also sixteen large lakes that come into play throughout. The signature hole is the tremendous par-5, 17th, which is a scenic hole that features a lake, fairway bunkers, and a breaking green. Although the course is a challenge, there are six sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels.

Quick Green/Tight lies in the fairway

Some of the quickest greens I’ve ever played on! Excellent condition! The fairway are very close and not much grass on them! This can really get into your head and cause thin hits or chunking.. overall a great course!

Stop Here if You are in St. Augustine

Very nice course. Pace was slow due to a cold frost that morning, so I can't hold that against them. The course has a good mix of short and long holes, links-style opportunity to bump and run, water, traps. It's a good challenge. I will go back.

Challenging Course

Wonderful golfing experience. Challenging layout, wide fairways lined with trees, water and homes, large and deep bunkers and traps, fresh sand, sloped greens and variety of tee boxes.

Be careful here..No respect for virus..take your life into your own hands

Course is ok.No grass on fairways.My friend loves it because it is an easy short course...Greens are fast with many bare spots not as good as St. John’s CC...just be careful here.The virus is out of control in St Johns’s county We are must respect each other even those that want to die...

Playable but needs improved maintenance

It appears that the course is not being maintained to acceptable standards. The greens are okay but the fairways seem to be underwatered and need additional seeding,

Good day overall

Ranger made us skip 10 and play 11 because we were apparently playing slow but then we had to wait at 3 tee boxes on the back 9. Should’ve just played 10. Solid day overall. Course was in good shape, can’t say the same for my putter. Greens are really fast
