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.

Another Great Round

Had another great round/experience at SH. The course is always in good, if not great shape and that's the tees, fairways, traps, and greens. Greens roll true, hold the balls, and are manicured and there's actual sand in the traps. The layout of the course is always conducive to a good pace regardless of how busy it may be. My only complaint, albeit a minor one, is to please start filling the water barrels on the course. It's been a hot summer and still is, but I'd like to be able to get some water every few holes and not have to always wait for the bev cart. This issue seems to be ongoing at many courses and I can't understand why this practice has gone to the wayside. If you're going to pair singles on carts, which I have no issue with, then you can certainly fill the water jugs.

Thanks and keep up the great job!

Nice course

First time golfing here and enjoyed my round! Fairways were in great shape and the greens rolled pretty good too! Don't have a bad thing to say about my round.

Very Bad Course Policy will ruin a good golf course

I've been playing this course for at least 12 years and always considered it a fun and nice round of golf. However Golf Now players need to be concerned. On August24, 2021 the weather was brutally hot with a forecast of afternoon T-storms. My teetime was a hot deal at 12:51. Because of the brutal heat no one had teed off for over an hour and half. I asked the starter if we could tee off earlier because of the forecast. The starter was ok but the woman in the pro shop said no unless we paid the difference between the rack rate and the hot deal rate, Furthermore I was a single and was told that I would have to share a cart with a total stranger with the Covid Variant raging in Florida. The course's greens were recently aerated as well and there was no aeration warning. As it turned out I was only able to play 9 holes beccause of the T-storms. All in all a rotten day of golf but more policy related than golf course related.

Punched Greens/Full price

We played on 8/22/21. No mention of recent aerification. Paid 79 bucks to play. I totally understand the need for course maintenance. But the customer should be advised at time of booking.
We are blessed with many golf course options in Jacksonville. If we would have known in advance, we would have gone elsewhere. Especially for the price! I do like the track and have played it many times. But very disappointed this time around. Greens atleast need 2 to 3 weeks of healing.
There should be some communication between the course and GolfNow as well.

Staff

Starters are confusing. Gave our threesome 2 carts then added a single to us and put a twosome behind us. They then had us consolidate to two carts. Upon making the turn at a hour and 50 minute pace we got hot dogs. The staff inside is amazing but a bit slow as they are training some new people. We make it to 10 tee and are then confronted about our pace of play being 10 minutes slower than the group in front (also a twosome). Really couldn’t believe this. Explained getting pre made wraps and hot dogs took 20 minutes and they just wouldn’t leave us alone about it. Wasn’t impressed especially when setting up two 3 somes to start with would have solved this

No notice of greens under maintenance.

I would of played somewhere else if I had know they were aerating the greens. Like putting on sand dunes.
Fairways are in decent shape and that's about it.

Except for aeration

The course is very well maintained and easy to follow for first time play. The greens were aerated and except for the poor timing of playing was the only disappointment of play. Would highly recommend course and look forward to playing again in the future

Great conditions

I played yesterday. The greens are fast and in great shape. The fairways are great even though we have gotten tons of rain. I was very surprised with the coarse conditions with all the recent rain.
