Palatka Golf Club - Where Past & Present Meet

Palatka Golf ClubGolfers on the First Coast want to play more, not pay more.

Just over the expansive waters of the St. Johns River and through the quaint downtown of Palatka, you’ll find a course that provides an authentic golf experience at a reasonable cost.

Palatka Golf Club is where the past and present meet. In a natural, clutter-free atmosphere, the holes tumble gently over the sandy ridges and wrap the tranquil woods of Ravine Gardens State Park. Professional management and staff ensure a top-flight customer experience.

This 1925 Donald Ross-designed layout still challenges the best, too: Palatka Golf Club serves as the exclusive host of the Florida Azalea Amateur, the state’s longest running amateur tournament and a gateway event to the PGA Tour. Past winners and Tour players include Tommy Aaron, Dan Sikes, Bob Murphy, Sean Pacetti, Ryuji Imada, Philip Worthington, and Jeff Klauk.

The course re-emerged to prominence earlier this year, when a team led by renowned golf designer Bobby Weed assumed management and began a long term renovation of the layout. The work will focus on rebuilding the bunkers, expanding tees and greens, and introducing sandy out-of-play areas. As Bobby himself commented, the project will emphasize the facility’s traditional roots:

“At Palatka Golf Club, we are intent on offering golf as it should be. Our focus will be on the game’s original cornerstones: good course conditions for a reasonable price, interesting holes thatare fun to play, and a pleasant staff that loves golf as much as you do.”

Palatka Golf ClubThe course can be played quickly and enjoyably, offering golfers the best thrills of the game without taking up the day. After the round, relax in the full-service clubhouse with our new menu. Then, if you don’t want to tee it up for another 18, spend time rediscovering the riverfront downtown of Palatka, take a paddle along the St. Johns on Florida’s first official “blueway”, or check out a concert at the City’s “Live at the Larimer” series.

If you are looking for a course that’s big on fun, light on your wallet, and leaves you time to explore, come see our progress at Palatka Golf Club.
