Palencia Golf Club

PALENCIA DRIVE, ST AUGUSTINE

When you pull up to the clubhouse at The Palencia Club, you may think you've mistakenly arrived at a grand hotel. You walk through the high gates past the bag drop and think you've entered a Roman arena - you half expect trumpets. The layout spreads out below you like Shangri-La, green and inviting - a golfer's paradise.

Designed by the legendary Arthur Hills, this 7,071 yard, par 72 layout is one of the most exclusive courses in the area. Carved out of 200-year old oak trees, the Palencia Golf Course offers you a challenging layout as you go through your round of 18. The conditioning is immaculate and the fairways are the very definition of the word lush. 

It's a beautiful layout, winding through the low country just to the west of the Intracoastal Waterway, with elevated tee boxes and greens affording views of gnarled, centuries-old oaks and, on some holes of the waterway itself and its surrounding marshes. However, accuracy is a must, more so for the coastal winds. 

Hole three, called "Leaning Tree," features a mature live oak whose main trunk reaches across the fairway. But don't worry, it doesn't obstruct your shot, unless you hit a low line drive. Number six features a high green with a view of the tidal marshes and Intracoastal Waterway. Hole sixteen is the course's signature hole, it is framed by magnificent oak forests and offers a wide view of water behind the low, open green.
Property Location
Our Take
Overlooking the ninth and eighteenth greens is the three story, 33,000 square foot clubhouse which offers an informal and intimate café that spills out onto the Village Green and a bar and grill overlooking the ninth and 18th greens.
