“Great golf course!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The course is in great shape and is a fun course to play. We play it every opportunity that we can when we are in St. Augustine. Challenging but a good course.

“Fantastic course that keeps getting better...”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I have visited this course since it opened as my family own timeshare at World Golf Village.

I can safely say the course gets better every year as it matures and develops more character.

The condition is always very good, the service great, and although there are houses near the course you feel like you are playing a private course.

Only downside for me is the removal of the GPS from the carts, but other than that the course is very good.

I am not sure i would pay top green fee as the value would be debatable. You are paying for the names involved (Arnie and Jack) but we managed to get a deal on a tee time site to play for $65. There are deals to be had and the twilight times are good value.

Course wise, i last played in September. Course condition was very good, greens were putting true, and the rough was penalising yet fair.

A must play for me when in the area but also give its little brother Slammer and Squire a go...

“A REAL TREAT”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

about 15 minutes from The World of Golf is this well maintained and beautiful golf course. It was designed by Palmer and Nicholas and is playable for all levels. A lot of water comes into play so bring a few extra golf balls. The club house is terrific, excellent food and showers if you need them after the game

“Fun Course”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Really enjoyed the course. It was in excellent shape even though the greens had been aireated and were a bit slower than you'd expect. Would play it again.

Mother-daughter outing. Great golf course, with friendly staff. A bit long but a must play! Be sure to bring extra balls.
