Okay so this course isnt actually a golf course for starters. It is 4 practice holes amd each green has 2 pins in it. When you get there you pay your money and get a bucket of range balls that is relatively large. My advice would be to get your moneys worth out of that. Me and my brother thought this was a 9 hole course but we were wrong. If you take the complex for what it is you wont be dissappointed. It is a range with a few holes on the side. It is not a golf course.

He would not play this course again.

This is a review of the range. Unfortunately, apathy is setting in, after significant funds were spent to double the number of hitting bays and add a fancy mobile cover.

The basics need tending to - for starters, having predictable hours, and management (care). Intermittent electrical and drainage problems are causing it to be regularly closed or limited in operation. Litter is not regularly picked up. The putting green, practice bunker and chipping area are really rough. Areas of wetlands that are clearly in hitting range are not netted, I assume causing substantial losses of range balls. The range itself has become barren mud - drainage issues, a range picker cart/machine that is too rough on the ground, lack of turf management experience? I don't know, but so many other ranges have figured out how to grow grass on and pick balls from a range, even during our wet summers.

Range mats under the cover need to be hosed off every day if not multiple times a day. Get rid of the "mats only" signs everywhere -- for all intents and purposes, this is a mats only range that that is ok. Signs on the door saying "help wanted" and "mats only" would be right at home on the ClubProGuy's twitter feed.

Or, just close the whole thing so that the private sector will have enough of a market to open a different range in the southside of Jax that caters to golfers. There can be huge crowds at times, notwithstanding the limitations of the range. Look at what Seattle's public golf ranges are like - a thousand times better. Or look at how well Jacksonville's Bent Creek is managed on a limited budget, with a lighted, all-grass range.

Sorry for the negative review and I will certainly give a more positive one if things turn around. It is such a strategic location for a nighttime golf range and I think it will have strong support if maintained.

Took my almost 4 year old son to this course and we walked it. Short greens with no need to bring your driver but it was a fun little jaunt and a great way to get in a few holes when you're in a crunch.

This is a very good practice facility. Conditions around the greens are not great but a great way for you to practice about any kind of shot over a four hole course this is a very good practice facility. Condition are a great way for you to practice about any are shot over a four hole course. Practice putting green is great along with the practice chipping green before you go on the four hole layout .

I had not played this course in quite some time. The course was in the best of shape. The bunkers were poorly kept. They were hard, very little sand and more like mud.
