Golf Club At South Hampton
Top Course in FL
South Hampton was the best course I played at while in Jacksonville Beach area. The course was is great shape. The staff was very friendly and overall price for what you get was incredible. Definitely will be playing here again.

Just to slow for premium price
Was looking forward to this course but play was to slow waiting on every shot and the Marshall did not care that there were 4 groups on tenth hole two waiting on the tee in front of them. 5+ hours is just not acceptable with cart.
I had heard a lot about this course but actually st johns
Is a far nicer course both in layout and condition. South Hampton has wide fairways to hit but is protected by large slopey greens. The greens were average at best looking a little bare in places but run fast and true.
Overall I course just ok but pace of play and lack of Marshall attention to problem drops this course down my play list. Only thankful for golf now green fee of 41. Any more is just not justify able

Was the first time in a while we played here. All I can say is what happened. This place was a cow pasture. The greens were horrible barely any grass bumpy and just plain horrible. Around the greens was no grass so chipping was a mute point. The fairways were also nothing special. They claimed they over seeded with rye but my buddy and I figured they were just a few hundred bags short on seed. I would avoid this place at all costs and go down the street to St. John's which is in excellent shape and greens that are probably the best in Jacksonville, running at least a 11 on stimp meter. South Hampton is a highly over priced goat farm.

Course was in really good condition, but the gusty winds made it more challenging. Will play this course again.

Fast Greens, narrow fairways pose a challenge
Teeshots here look very challenging. You have to take what this course gives you; that is, unless you can work the ball like Bubba! Do not try to cut too many corners or make too many other risky moves. You will be punished! The conditions were just about pristine. The greens were probably as fast as i have ever played, probably running a 12.5 on the stimp meter. Very picturesque course also. The staff was great, ranger present and we had a bit of a tee time misunderstanding so it got pushed back 15 minutes, but no biggie. Practice facilities here are great. South Hampton delights both members and visitors alike with an all around great golf experience. To put the icing on the cake it was a perfect day.

This course is fun to play at all levels
Generally this course is a little bit pricier than others of similar caliber but GolfNow got us a decent rate on that day to play. Course was in great shape, greens were fast and the layout was enjoyable to play. Round took longer than expected as there were a number of twosomes sent off ahead us and did not want to be paired up with others.

Ranger is pushy on speed of play. Back 9 has character
Better than King $ Bear at half the price. Back 9 has a lot of character. Our speed of play was "on pace" but since the 2-some ahead of us had a 2 hole gap the Ranger came by twice and said to move along. We were on pace as allotted but they feel you gotta play faster...
