THE GOLF CLUB AT SOUTH HAMPTON (904-287-7529)
Florida Golf Course Review
The Golf Club at South Hampton is known for high quality and affordable rates. This Mark McCumber design features a wooded terrain with manicured fairways that are flanked by
mature oaks and pines. Contoured bunkering and scenic lakes and wetlands provide plentiful hazards on this fair yet challenging layout.
Golfers can choose from 5 sets of tees that play to 6952 yards/134 slope, 6479 yards/131 slope, 6005 yards/121 slope, 5462 yards/111 slope, and 4784 yards with a slope of 105.
On course yardage markers are provided at 100, 150 and 200 yards and sprinkler heads are measured to the center of the green. Scorecards post information on the front, middle
or back pin placements.
On property are complete practice facilities that include a grass range, putting green and short game area. Instruction of all kinds is available through the Hampton Golf Academy.
The clubhouse features a pro shop, restaurant/lounge plus banquet and outing facilities. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. The course is a Mark McCumber
championship links style design that meanders through an upscale residential community, in a rather secluded golf environment.
The fairways are quite generous, but sand bunkers sculpted into fairway mounding can create some challenging recovery situations. Raised green complexes are large and
contoured, with deep sand traps often situated on one or both side. During our late February visit, the course was in fine condition, and the landscaping with pampas and tropical
foliage around the cart paths, tees and green complexes, made our experience all the more enjoyable. Like many north Florida golf courses, South Hampton allows the Bermuda
rough to go dormant during the winter months.
This property is located on County Road 210, west of I-95 and minutes from downtown Jacksonville, Baymeadows, Ponte Vedra and from the World Golf Village in St Augustine.
