Hampton Golf - As Great as the Game Itself

Eagle HarborHampton Golf has been diligently working to give its members and guests a golf experience that’s “As Great as the Game Itself” for over a decade. The all-around golf course marketing and management outfit has expanded its stable of courses from one in 1999 to 22 currently on the strength of focus and attention to detail.

Headquartered in Jacksonville, Hampton Golf courses can be found throughout Florida. Recent additions make the first-rate Hampton Golf Experience available in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. For golfers who visit a Hampton facility, this translates into customer service and conditioning that is second to none.

The group’s mission statement reads, “We pride ourselves on maintaining the tradition of golf by bringing you the highest standards of excellence in design, service and course conditions at each of our facilities.”

The Golf Club at South Hampton

The Golf Club at South Hampton became the first course to join the Hampton Golf family in 1999. The Club is semi-private and features a layout designed by North Florida native and former PLAYERS champion Mark McCumber. Located just northwest of historic Saint Augustine, this open user-friendly track provides excellent playing conditions, plenty of risk-reward opportunities and features 16 large lakes and more than 60 well-contoured bunkers. The course has always enjoyed a tremendous reputation in the First Coast of Golf. South Hampton’s trademark is the use of naturally occurring slopes and contours in the routing – a quality that’s become synonymous with McCumberdesigned courses.

The Golf Club at North HamptonIn Fernandina Beach you’ll find a course fit for and built by a King. The Golf Club at North Hampton is an Arnold Palmer Signature Design and has been ranked as a top 10 course in the state of Florida by Golfweek and the readers of Golflink.com. This links-style course opened for business in 2001 and is known as a challenging test of shot-making ability and short game skill. Masterful routing and unbelievable conditioning have made this Northeast Florida stalwart an unquestionable “must play” and one of the most esteemed tracks in the Hampton Golf collection.

Venerable Selva Marina Country Club has a rich tradition and a bright future. The private, member-owned club was once home to the Greater Jacksonville Open – a precursor to the Players Championship. In 1966, Jack Nicklaus recorded his first-ever double eagle during the event on the 18th hole. Located in beautiful Atlantic Beach, Selva Marina is just blocks from the water. Ocean breezes can be felt on the club’s open fairways. The country club is also home to a world-class tennis program, excellent restaurants and a junior Olympic pool.

Selva MarinaHampton Golf’s trusted reputation earned the group the right to reenergize and reintroduce the wellrespected club. The group took over Sept. 1, 2010.

“We will begin making improvements at Selva Marina immediately to ensure it is a modern club with the finest amenities and facilities while maintaining its tradition and upstanding reputation as one of the city’s premier country clubs,” said MG Orender, president and CEO of Hampton Golf and former president of the PGA of America.

Located in Palm Coast, Florida, The Grand Club features some of the finest golfing opportunities available in Northeast Florida. The 54 holes of championship golf (open to the public) on property have been created by two of the game’s greatest designers and players - Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. The Grand Club earns its name with its three unforgettable courses, Pine Course, Cypress Course, and Matanzas Course, each one providing a unique and challenging golf experience.

Grand HavenDesigned by award-winning architect Clyde Johnston, Eagle Harbor has been considered one of Jacksonville’s finest layouts since opening in 1993. The semi-private course was skillfully carved from a forest of 60-foot pines and provides an exciting and challenging round of golf. Always in excellent condition, the layout features multi-tiered greens, rolling fairways, and a variety of sand and grass bunkers.
