Rating 34.5

Starke Country Club is a 9-hole course that is open to the public. The layout features tree-lined fairways and water hazards come into play on seven holes in the forms of streams and small ponds. There are also strategically placed bunkers and native vegetation bordering the fairways and greensides. Although the course does feature some challenges, the layout is player-friendly with many forgiving features. It provides an excellent and affordable round for the beginning golfer. One of the mot notable holes on the course is the par-5, 5th hole. This tricky par-5 has three separate creeks running through the fairway.

The staff was friendly at least!

Course was beyond bad. Literally couldn’t put on the greens the grass was so long. The rest of the course was just as over grown and a sloppy mud fest. There were not any cart paths to speak of so you are constantly in the muck.

However, the staff was probably the friendliest staff I’ve come across!!!!!

Laid back course

My son and I played her for the first time. I really wasn't thinking it would be that great when we pulled into parking lot. I was wrong! Great 9 hole course, great people, laid back. We had a great time!

Cheap

Cheap golf. First time for my wife and grandson playing golf. Best ball players on course didn't seem to mind our slow pace which was really nice. Wife and grandson had no idea of golf etiquette and the other players probably had a good laugh watching the multiple wiffs and yelling " Did you see where my ball went " ( which was about 30 -50 yards)
The course is what it is. Good layout but the greens and tees need extensive work. Had a great time and my wife and grandson want to play golf now. Mission accomplished.

A couple of disclaimers, but give it a try

The course is first come first serve so your Golfnow tee time doesn’t really mean anything. Keep that in mind because we had to wait almost an hour because all the carts were out. The greens were overgrown, but halfway through the round they were cut and it made a world of difference. Staff was super friendly. Very laid back and a great place for the beginner golfer or anyone who wants to play a budget friendly round with family/friends. Beer is cheap and dress code is very relaxed.

Great course if you’re just looking to get in some practice.

Nice little 9 hole course if you’re just looking to get in some driver and iron practice. Greens are in rough shape. Great layout that allows you to hit a variety of clubs and shots. I was looking to get in some work with a new set of irons without spending a lot and it served its purpose well. Staff was super friendly. Will definitely go back when I’m in the area.
