Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club offers a quality of life that is unparalleled. This 600-acre private golf community prides itself in excellence and its central location offers residents easy access to major roads like Butler Boulevard and Beach Boulevard. This location provides business professionals and beach-goers alike with a ten to fifteen minute drive to major Jacksonville areas.
Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club offers 260 acres of open playing area in comparison to most 180 acre courses. Because of this generous amount of land set aside, home sites are able to be more distant from the 18-hole course. This helps to create better playing characteristics and a nicer overall aesthetic not typically found in other golf and country club communities.
The impressive golfing experience at Glen Kernan is no accident. Home sites are built around 40 feet above sea level while lakes are only 23 feet in elevation. This allows for land to be sculpted into existing terrain and display hills, rolls and other features more similar to land in North Carolina rather than Florida’s typical flat landscape. Because of the high standards that have been established by its developer, only the best grasses are used in order to provide Glen Kernan’s superior playing surfaces. In addition, the carefully designed golf course appeals to players of all skill levels. Large trees, greens, and landing areas appeal to the average golfer while strategically placed bunkers, water features and grassy areas challenge even the most skilled of players. Tactical risk takers are rewarded while beginners can choose to play it safe and enjoy the full extent of each hole.
Glen Kernan’s developer, George Hodges Jr., not only set high standards for this unique golf community, but also committed time and resources to make sure quality and beauty were the end results. The design and construction concept required the excavation of more than 1.3 million cubic yards of earth. While a typical golf course requires about four times less than that, the commitment resulted in a golf course that is filled with character, beauty, flowing fairway movements and overall high quality.
