One of my favorite courses to play of all time. Open, yet challenging, beautiful picture opportunities, maintained to perfection every year.

Excellent track but don't go on a hot sunny day as there's little coverage from the blazing hot southern sun. Great employees including the starter who was a NYC police officer named Nicky.

I really enjoyed the round at this course! They have some very good golf holes and the houses are not on top of the course so you can actually enjoy the beauty of trees. Not one of my best rounds this year, but it was certainly an enjoyable day on the course. The staff (with the exception of the starter)... More

It was a fantastic course that had a nice balance between easy and challenging holes. The layout of the course was very unique and was in very good shape. They do offer the use of a Segway instead of a golf cart if you so choose for a $50 extra charge. As an 18 year old, 5 handicapper I took... More

This course is well designed, well taken care of. Nothing bad to say. Played it on a Saturday so it played fast. Palmetto dunes golf courses seem to always be in good shape on the island which is not to be said for all of them. Nice fairways, bunkers and average speed greens. Not much of a rough but course...

The course was very well kept, but it was disappointing to only see the ocean on two holes when "oceanfront" is in the name. It was a little over priced, but overall I would recommend you play this course. Good amenities with GPS in the golf carts but the service from staff was a little lax.

Hi Charles - we regret that you had a less than satisfactory experience at the Jones Course. As we mentioned in our message to you, the Jones Course has brand new GPS carts with built-in handicap flagging that designates the cart as handicapped to the proshop and the rangers, and also allows you to travel most anywhere on the course...

I highly recommend Doug Weaver as a golf instructor. I took a golf lesson from Doug and asked him to help me hit my driver better. I am middle-aged and hadn't played much golf in the last two years. After about 5 minutes he took me through a series of simple drills and within 30 minutes I was hitting my... More

Played golf with my son earlier today. We're both pretty good players, so this is based on a better players review. Would have been 4 1/2 to 5 but the conditions would not warrant a higher rating. Fairways and tees are a bit spotty. Greens were about 85%. Find a discount or wait until later in the day for better... More

I took a lesson from Doug W last week. He sized me up quickly and told me exactly what I needed to know to move my game forward. I have been playing for many years, but not very seriously, and this was my first lesson. Nevertheless, before my lesson I had never gotten a birdie, or a par on a... More
