Florida's First Coast

  Like: Share:  
Florida's First Coast boasts over 60 golf courses including the 24 large residential golf course communities listed here. Some of these are private (only members and guests may play), but quite a few are semi-private (non-members may play).  A few exclusive communities only allow residents to be members. The green flags to the left mark the locations of some of these golf course communities. Position your mouse over a flag for more information. There are roughly 1,000 homes for sale in the golf course communities in the First Coast at any point in time, although the actual number varies by season and market conditions.

Below are the two dozen most popular golf course communities in the First Coast area, in alphabetic order. The descriptions sometimes mention "true" country clubs; these are the traditional social and sports clubs, and outsiders may generally join. Some other communities are "country clubs" in name only. If you want additional information, simply contact Dennis or Steve.
