About Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club - North Course

South Course 7153-74.4-140 6690-72.2-136 6206-69.9-123 North Course 7226-74.9-134 6863-72.9-131 6299-70.2-124 Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club is a semi-private, 36-hole golf facility, with two superb golf courses unique to Florida's natural topography. Both the North and South course proudly hold a Golf Digest 4 ½-star ranking. The spectacular layout of both courses and the grandfather oak trees lead you to believe the courses have been here for decades. Rated #16 Best in the State of Florida, Lake Jovita truly is unique. The South course, designed by PGA Tour star Tom Lehman, boasts the largest elevation change of any hole in Florida (hole #11). The course features tight fairways lined with majestic oak trees and many natural water hazards. Due to the South course's challenging play and natural beauty, it has hosted The PGA Tour Qualifying School since 2000. In addition, each year the South course is a US Open and US Women's Open qualifying site and is also home to the University of South Florida Division One Spring Invitational. The North course is the perfect complement to its sister South course. Designed by renowned golf course architect, Kurt Sandness, the North course has a longer layout that features bunker-lined, undulating fairways surrounded by natural Florida fauna and wildlife. It is ranked as the 16th best course in Florida by Golfweek magazine. The North course is a favorite host site to several Florida State Golf Association championships.

    Great course, both north and south. One of our must play courses on our trip.
    Richard(Palm Coast, Florida0) 3/24/2017
    The course was not in the excellent shape it usually is. We may have been earlier this year, so fairways have not grown in. Greens were ok, but nothing special.
    SCOTT REITH(BURLINGTON - MA) 3/6/2017
    Great starter course for a golf trip, greens were fast more elevation change than i would have thought in Florida. We had a twosome and groups ahead of us let us play through so pace of play was never a problem, finished in 3 1/2 hrs

    Always a must play. Great course and in great shape, plays fair but definitely not easy.
    Richard(Palm Coast) 4/14/2016
    We played the North course this year for the first time. South course was in use because of rain out the day before. The north course was in very good shape and much more playable for higher handicaps. We ranged from 12 to24

    Drove 25 miles to play 36 holes and loved it. Nice staff, two nice courses with excellent, smooth, fast greens. Quick, good food at the turn. Considering staying in a condo there next year and just playing these two courses for a week.
    Mark(Palm Harbor) 12/4/2015
    We were more than disappointed with this facility. We paid over 90.00 to play. On the day when we showed up it was 60.00. I questioned the girl and did not get a response. That said we started our round. The greens were in terrible shape with large dead spots and even weed growing. I will admit the back none greens were better but not even close to what you would expect form a course that we paid 90.00 for. Crescent Oaks was in much better condition for a fraction of the cost. THEN the cart girl shows up on the third hole to inform us that it is last call. As no one is on this course she will not be coming by anymore. Is that what one expects from a so called first class facility. Along with this we had received rain the night before and the bunkers were full of water. Some were unplayable. Not just a bit of water fully flooded. For the amount paid I would expect the grounds crew to have been out and pumped the water out of the traps. We questioned the pro shop after the round and did not get an answer. I would be embarrassed to be a member of this facility in the condition it was in. I feel that we should not have paid anymore that what we paid for Crescent Oaks which was $42.00. We do not normally complain but the condition of this course and the treatment we received warranted this. Let me know if there is anything you can do about this.
    Ralph() 4/27/2015
    The course was not what I expected. Greens was slow and the fairways a little rough. The staff made you fill unwanted.
    Art(Downer's Grove, IL) 4/25/2015
    Great course and nice amenities. Unfortunately we played this course on the day of departure and haven't had the luxury of hanging around for lunch or a second round. So next year we will be playing this course earlier on our trip
    Allen(Clinton NY) 4/23/2015
    an ok course. not the elevation changes we thought there would be. Nice area. very slow play the day we were there.
    () 3/31/2015
    Always a good course. Other courses may be more challenging but this one is always nice. North is better than the south.

    Jack(Columbus, Ohio) 3/20/2015
    Played the South course. Was the fourth course played on a buddy trip. Though an acceptable and pleasant course it was rated number 4 by each member of our group. Would appear that Jovita was probably quite nice at some point in past, but had that overall look of recent neglect. It was definitely overpriced for the conditions. Was 105 dollars on a Friday in high season. Feel 70 dollars would have been appropriate.
    MICHAEL RANDA(WAUKESHA - WI) 3/9/2015
    the course was in great shape & so were the greens, they were only rolling about 9-10 wish they were faster-- the Pro Shop & the starter don't seem to communicate too well-- otherwise no complaints---would play it again

    Glenn(NULL) 11/7/2014
    Overall the course had some memorable holes and others that were ho-hum. Not a very memorable track compared to what we played in the Orlando area.
    Frank(NULL) 7/21/2014
    Great value. Both the courses were outstanding. And of all the courses in Florida these were the best rolling greens
    John(NULL) 6/13/2014
    Not the time of year to visit LJ. We were basically ignored. Nobody at bag drop. No starter (at either course). Range balls in package, but range was closed. Voucher to play South Course, but South Course was closed. Girl in Pro Shop neglected to mention t

    Bruce(Brossard - QC CANADA) 12/7/2012
    A little way north of Tampa but well worth it. Very nice golf courses in a gated community. Two 18 holes of love - trust me. One of the best courses we played. Expensive in the pro shop and replays are not cheap either. Overall - a must for any golf nut
    Geoffrey(Barnstaple Ex314sy - UNITED KINGDOM) 5/29/2012
    We played the north course expecting the fastest greens of our trip. They came up to our expectation. Generally in very good condition although becoming affected by water shortage. Should be included when in the area.
    Robert(Silver Spring - MD) 4/26/2012
    Lake Jovita is always a wonderful place to play golf. We go every year for 36 holes and wouldn't miss it. The Northand South course are both beautiful - challenging - and fun. Andthey are different enough from each other that you don't tire ofthe cour

    This is not an enjoyable course for a group like ours that shoots around 100. Greens are incredibly fast and too many holes required extremely long drives for anyone who can't consistently hit 200 yard drives. Course was wonderful,but only for low handicappers.
