Featured Golf Course Review:
Abbey Course At St. Leo University, The -- needs work, and lots of it
Review by: Joel Panabaker The course is little more than a cleared patch of grass mowed on occasion. The course has very few redeeming features and even fewer memorable holes (#'s 5 - 8 are the best stretch and would be average on any other course). It is what you'd expect if you and a group of guys owned a little farm land and decided to build a golf course. Trees form the majority of the hazards on this course and even they are sparse, used mostly to line the borders between the zillion fairways that run parallel to each other. Undoubtably the worst greens I have every played on. Ever. Anywhere. And these were mowed! Last time the greens had two inch grass on them. I don't rememeber a single sand trap. What do you expect for $16 primetime and $10 off season? The worst part is, there is potential here - all's it would take is a little money and a lot of work...

San Jose Country Club -- Delightful Donald Ross Challange
Review by: J.F. Fannin This private course was designed by Donald Ross to be a resort course in the early twentieth century. It was purchased after World War II by locals and formed into a club known as San Jose Golf and Country Club and has been sucessfully maintained as the private club since. It is the home course to many prominent Jacksonville residents. One must be a member or guest to play. It is a par 72. The greens are all adjacent to the tees, so that it can be walked easily. There are water hazards sprinkled throughout the course, which make it a dangerous layout for errant shots. The moderately fast greens are well maintained Burmuda and are sometimes puzzling with rolling configuration. A mature course--kept in excellent shape year-round.
