Par: 72
Designer: Robert Walker

Located just a half-mile off I-95 outside St. Augustine, St. Johns Golf Club is a cut above the traditional county-operated golf course. Beginning with its scenic Robert Walker layout that enhances and flows with the surrounding natural landscape, St. Johns is atypical of many First Coast golf operations.

The front nine weaves its way through a series of wetlands, pine groves and waterways. Both the third and eighth hole best represent the challenge of this layout. The 3rd hole is a dogleg left over a pond requiring an accurate tee shot followed by a quality approach as the green has water both to its left and behind it. On the par 3 8th hole, tee shots must be solidly struck as the green is bulk headed almost completely around, with bunkers front and back, testing a players commitment and resolve.

Water hazards are even more prevalent on the back nine with water on all but one hole. Despite this, most of the water runs on either side of the holes with only one true forced carry required. The par 5 7th hole is reachable in two shots if a player is willing to cut off distance by challenging the water off the tee. Approach shots are uphill to a multi-tiered green testing a player’s distance control whether it is their 2nd or 3rd shot. The finishing hole is 430 yards long and requires a tee shot to split a fairway bounded by wetlands and pine groves. With a drivable par 4 over water as well, the back nine has the potential to be a career low or an extremely frustrating nine holes. Many a good player has shot a 32 one day and a 42 the next while trying to navigate the risk/reward options.

Attesting to the quality of the well-manicured layout is its annual hosting of the St. Augustine Amateur, which attracts amateurs of all ages, especially the region’s top junior players, in search of national ranking points.

Small and large group outings are always welcome at St. Johns. The friendly and professional staff and on-site restaurant can cater to your particular golf-party needs as well as banquets and other gatherings. St. Johns has held many events including the St. Augustine Amateur which benefits the First Tee of St. Johns County, Ernie’s Tool fundraiser, Cancer research benefits, Baseball fundraisers, High School Sports Booster events, USGA and FSGA qualifiers and many others.

Hero’s 19th Hole restaurant serves breakfasts and afternoon grill fare daily and can cater to everything from golf outings to wedding receptions. The restaurant has an extensive menu and opens everyday at the same time the golf shop opens.

Wes Tucker, Director of Golf and Teaching Pro Tom Stecker, both PGA professionals, offer insights into improving your game that go beyond the latest video instruction techniques available to the best ideas in course management, all on the huge all-grass practice facility with putting and chipping greens. Group and student lessons packages as well as gift lessons are all available.

The fully-stocked golf-shop is one of the few in the area that does its own club repairing and is always offering shop specials through St. Johns Website, www.sjgc.com. St. Johns is also on Twitter and Facebook as well, so log on or call 904.209.0350 to make tee time or learn more about the facility.
