Sand traps were like mud and there was plenty of Geese droppings all over the tee boxes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by u968166034 Good luck with the carts!
Having played here several times in the past, I was aware of the course conditions. At the best of times, this is a very damp course, being pretty much at sea level, it tends to get a bit swampy with any amount of rainfall. What o wasn't prepared for was having to have maintenance come rescue us twice when our cart stopped running. When I asked about what was wrong with the carts, the manager advised us that when any kind of moisture gets up under the bottom of the cart it shorts the batteries out....how safe is this? We asked for a raincheck for 9 holes due to breaking down twice on the back nine, and were told since we prepaid thru golfnow we had to get a refund from them.I don't see how this is golfnows problem.... And we didn't want a refund....just a raincheck..... Oh well...won't go back there again or recommend it to any one else.

This course was in terrible shape, no wonder nobody was on it. The greens are terribly slow and bumpy. Like others have said in previous reviews, good luck finding your ball if it goes in the rough, the grass is very long and full of weeds. The fairways aren't even cut nicely. The sand traps are mud and dirt. There are no water coolers on the course. The cart girl drives around in a regular golf cart with a cooler in the front seat, the beers were dented and covered in dirt and grass. One hole didn't even have the flag stick in the hole because it was broken for who knows how long. The course has a great layout and it's sad to see how far it has fallen from when I used to play there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by William8251629 Fun course but geens need work!
There is a lot of water and trees to avoid so it's a challenge but it's an interesting design and actually fun to play! Only bad is the greens are not very good, lots of sandy bumpy spots on greens that can affect your score. But overall I enjoy playing this course. It's reasonably priced and worth playing if you live nearby!

Rated 1 out of 5 by u000006152336 Pass on this track.
Hard to believe they allow 'Sawgrass' to be associated with this course.
Many other reviews regarding this course spot on. Greens were pretty bad. No consistency (except bad).
Miss fairway and rough will eat your ball.
Showed up 45 minutes early and no range balls. Kid was sitting in picker and didn't move until only one guy on range tees.
Only plus was playing with my buds and the pace was pretty good. Wide open.
No cart gal and no drinking water on course.
Far too many better course in Jax. I'll not return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by u000003030871 Worth the Golf Now price, but keep handle on expectations
The course is a nice design! The fairways are ok, the greens are horrible, the rough is a lot of weeds- tall weeds, and the bunkers are mud- no sand. It is a nice course design, and with Golf Now you can play for 35$ so it is worth the money. I understand that it is being bought (again), so If the new owners put some money into it, it could be a real nice course. When I went (730 am tee time), the bar wasn't open and there was no beverage cart until after 10am, I believe to cut costs.
I recommend the course for high handicappers that are trying to get better, but low handicappers may get upset by the conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by u000008221977 will not play here again
Worst condition of a golf course charging $35+ that I"ve ever played. I lost over 5 balls in the "ruff" because they hadn't mowed in weeks, I'd guess at least a month. The greens were like putting over the Sahara, there was no keeping a straight line. It was a beautife 90+ degree Sunday morning however no cart girl or water coolers/fountains, so you can imagine how the back 9 felt. Windor is the same price, maybe $5 more, and 100x in better shape!

You would think that this course would be pretty good given its proximity to PGA headquarters and the fact that it is located in a development that is able to generated decent HOA fees to maintain this corurse. However, lower your expectations because this has to be one the poorest golf courses in the area.
