Excellent layout. Naturally beautiful course and challenging holes. Ready to play again.
Course was great, maintained perfectly. Not sure how it’s empty all the time but that is part of what makes it so great, hidden gem. Staff was helpful and extra friendly which is alway a huge plus
Great layout for experienced golfers.... several holes that require carrying natural areas off the tee, Some other areas require carry on approach shots to green, and a few holes that require both. Course in good shape and fun to plsy
Bring extra balls
Don't take out the big stick on every hole. Play smart. I played much better on the back than the front. Unless your down the middle on every tee off shot play smart and hit your second shot. Marsh will have you thinking...should I go for it.....Watch out for number 15....
Great challenging course
We loved this course.we are very keen golfers,and booked here at a really good rate with Golfnow.as we hadn’t played it before, found it very challenging as there are a many holes with a huge amount of carry .. However,we went back a few days later, with course knowledge,and throughly enjoyed it. The greens had just been treated,however,they were great.the scenery was lovely,as were all the staff. We arrived a bit early,and as the course was quiet,we were told if we wanted to,we could T -off.. driving range was included in our price as was a car that with gps,which was important to keep an eye on!
I had not played this course in a couple of years and it did not disappoint The course was wet but still
in great shape Greens were perfect
Challenging course that requires thinking before hitting shots. Lots of landing areas.
Beautiful Course Very Challenging
Great place to play. It is short and narrow. Would play again just bring a ball for each hole.
Love this course
Played here on a tip from a friend and really enjoyed the course. You can make the course as hard as you want by changing tee boxes. The 2 par 5's on the back nine are as good as anywhere. A little off the beaten path, but worth the effort.
Gem in the middle of nowhere
This course is truly remarkable. I can’t believe it still exists because of such little amount of play. It is in the middle of nowhere but is totally worth the drive. We come here every time we visit St. George Island. The course conditions are fantastic and the layout is very challenging. It is not long, but you better hit it straight. Great value. Great course.
Fun, Tough course
This was the 4th time playing this course and it is just as tough as the 3 previous rounds. You must use course management to the fullest extent all while needing pin-point accuracy. The course is beautiful itself and the staff is very attentitive while also laid back and definitely want their customers to feel welcome and want to return. I will be returning to this course as long as I keep vacationing in the area.
Target Golf - Aim Well!
SJB weaves its way through nature on the Forgotten Coast. Nice not to have homes lining the fairways. Holes though are bordered by that same nature. If you're off, you're gone. Many holes also have nature areas in front of the tee box, then again in front of the green. So hit the target! Greens were just okay; lush but not particularly smooth. Typical water and sand for a FLA course. But like any good course, if you hit it straight you will score.
Green fees drop $10 every 2 hours from 11 AM on. Weekdays should be open, so you may want to get a tee time directly. Well maintained course with all expected amenities.
Would play again.
Staff needs customer relation training
Staff was upset we used Golfnow instead of paying them directly. They would not let us tee off early even though they had many empty tee times. They treated us like second class citizens because we used Golfnow. All the staff, even cart guys knew to shun the 11:30 tee time!
Humbling but natural beauty course
Bring plenty of your inexpensive “water” balls. Challenging off the tees to clear the native vegetation. Natural beauty and wildlife Course well maintained. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Full size range and nice rentals clubs.
Great Layout, beautiful scenery, well manicured. Only negative was the greens being a little rough, but could be due to time of year and a recent aerification.
