Country Club of Orange Park
This course has nice little setup.
I played after a storm had passed through. The course was set to have a tournament that was canceled. So i had the course just about all to myself. Even with all the rain course was in good shape. Greens were quick. It's nice course that i enjoy playing.

Consistency in presentation represents great value.
Very nice course to suit all abilities, very well maintained, excellent practice facilities and clubhouse prices that will not break the bank. A couple of greens not quite up to par but improving with weather. I would recommend this course and put it on my fav list for year round consistency and better than average practice facilities.

Good enough if you are just looking to play a round
Found a great rate on this course and I've been curious about it for awhile. First off let me say that I'm not too critical of a reviewer and for the most part today was perfect, I was playing golf! The good parts: everyone was very friendly, even other guys on the range were chatty and acted as if we were old friends. Big thank you to the starter, I was told by the proshop to wait on a last minute twosome; however, when I got ready on #1 we began to talk and I told her I was feeling anti-social becaue of a stressful week at work. She let me start and I'm not sure if the other two even made it. Course was in decent shape, some tee boxes were sandy and in need of attention, but most were fine. A few greens were sandy and missing turf which it caused a few putts to go crazy, but again, most were nice. Most fairways were a bit on the hard side with troubled spots in places, but they were playable.
Con: I was so mad at the end of my round I may not play here again. There are surprise water hazards everywhere!! I asked for a layout before leaving the clubhouse but was told they did not have one. Score cards did not show it, neither did signs at tee boxes. Some areas you can see and play them accordingly, but many you cannot. Many times I I hit a great drive and/or iron, only to find my ball sitting in the water (or never find my ball at all). I don't normally lose balls so I spend the extra money on quality one's. I may have gotten a great rate on the course, but that was negated by the water hazards. On the par-4 18th water bi-sects the fairway, but you can't see it from the tee box. Hit a long drive and thought I was in perfect position to finish strong, nope...water got it again. Didn't even want to finish at that point. Left very frustrated.
In the end I got to play a round so it was money well spent. I may not play here as a single again, but would recommend it if someone got a good deal on a round.

Great Course - a little backed up
Overall, very happy with play on 3/30. The course was well maintained and the pace of play was a little slow (took about 5 hours to complete).

couple of greens need attention but overall course is in good condition.
course over all is in good condition. Worth the trip.

Nice course, good condition.
I played Orange Park Country Club on a Twilight Golf Now time. The staff was extra friendly and hardly anyone was on the course. The distance on this course seemed much longer than what was stated. Conditions were very favorable and I found the course to be challenging. Nearly all greens were in excellent shape. Overall, great experience and I will definately play here again.

Interesting Golf Course with some challenging holes
Played on a holiday and course was packed, hence a bit slow. Staff was very friendly. The course is a mixture of easy and difficult holes (blue tees), hence golf course knowledge helps. Some greens need attention but overall in a good shape for February.

This course is challenging but fair
The course was in great shape. The pace of play was wonderful, no waiting on any tee.

Wont go back
The fairways and greens need help and the fairways are very

The senior discount price is right.
The greens are very fast even though some have been punched full and some partially and some not at all. A lot of grass and topsoil areas around tee boxes and greens washed away. It takes away from the beauty of the course.

This course is a good layout with lots of water to make it very challenging.
This was our first time to play the course. It is very challenging. Definitely a drivers course. A few of the greens were a little rough with some bare spots and the fairways need to grow in some. We had several tight lies on some of the sparse spots on the fairway. It would help first timers to have layouts of the holes to see were the trouble lies and distances from tee to water or hazards. Playing for the first we would hit what we thought were decent shots only to find they some had rolled into the water that we didn't know was there. Liked the course. Everyone was super friendly and will certainly play it again.

Great course,first timers should check with starter about water locations!
Had a great time,greens were "quick" and fairways in good shape. Very nice setting and good layout!

The greens are in terrible condition. It looks like they have been eaten by a fungus.

Greens need help
Greens are not at there best but it is winter like it or not. Play here a lot and the greens will only get better. It's a must play if you never have.

course played well
course played well. greens in good shape. fairways were hard with lots of bounce and roll. staff always friendly, always a great place to play

Course in very nice condition.
Although the course was in very nice condition, there needs to be a starter to control the start times of everyone. All people were just starting when they wanted to which caused groups to bunch up.
February 16, 2013
overall very nice course, greens a little rough
Nice course, will definitely play again. greens a little rough, but it is winter.
February 10, 2013
Good condition for winter
The course lets you use almost every club in your bag.
Difficult approach shots with plenty of lateral hazards,
rewards straight hitting with just enough difficulty on greens.

Nice course, greens need some work - bumpy, some brown spots.
Staff was nice, got out on time ... ran across several groups of five (which I DO NOT like) ended up skipping holes and coming back to finish later. No ranger on the course. Decent greens, but a few were spotty.

Not a bad deal, but nothing special
This course is not bad, but nothing special. I enjoyed my round, and must admit I played a few months ago, but the conditions were just in average shape. I would play the course again but def hoping for better conditions.

courteous staff, well maintained course, VALUE for your money

nice golf course.
The pace of play was slow for a weekday tee time. The fairways could use some water and there are a few greens that have dead spots. The layout of the course is nice and for the recreational golfer it is challenging as you want with ample tee boxes. Yardage markers are hard to find and there is no picture of the holes on the score card. This was the first time playing here so it was difficult to plan shots. For the money it is a good value.

Very nice older course
It's an older course with lots of water and a fair amount of sand. I love the layout, with a mix of being near nature, while also being around a nice development with beautiful homes.
It was not too busy the Monday afternoon I was there, so I rode by myself in around 3 hours.
The greens were slightly patchy, and slow. It looked to have been fertilized recently and is probably on it's way back. I would upgrade my rating from 3 star to 4 star if the greens improve.
I'd like to go back there and take my wife.

everything was in good shape, although greens were suffering a bit
really enjoyed playing this course. greens were suffering some, but still better than several other courses we've played recently. beautiful homes and surroundings

Good for the money.
Very fun course. The only problem( because of time of year) is that the greens are really in need of some attention. But the rest of the course is in great condition and the staff is one of the nicest groups out there. I would recommend this for anyone of any skill level.

Nice Course. Great value
Course was is good shape. The greens need some work. Overall was an enjoyable and challenging course to play.

Wet course. The greens were lacking. We had a fun time regardless. Not bad for a windy day in December.
December 30, 2012
I was hoping for so much more
The layout of the course is great but the greens were truly disappointing. Unfortunately this made me not care about the round and made the round truly forgettable.
