Last week we were privileged to have Councilman Matt Carlucci speak to us about the state of Jacksonville. He detailed a number of positive things the city is doing to improve, and also spoke of the difficult issues of what to do with JEA, how to handle the future of The Landing and other issues. He insisted that as a city we need to settle for nothing short of excellence for the city and its leaders.

Join us for our February golf outing at Queen's Harbor Golf Club!

Designed exclusively by Mark McCumber and bordered by the intercoastal waterway, our beautifully groomed Jacksonville golf course offers a unique blend of scenery. This Jacksonville golf club features tidal marshlands and century-old Spanish oak trees.
A premier Jacksonville golf course, Queen's Harbour hosted such prestigious events as the PGA Tour Qualifier and the Mercedes Collegiate Championships. Of all the Jacksonville golf courses, the challenge and scenery of Queen's Harbour truly sets it apart as one of the finest.
Golf amenities include a putting/chipping green and driving range. Other features of our world-class Jacksonville golf club include a full-service clubhouse with private dining areas, sweeping verandas, and 19th hole that overlooks a beautiful freshwater marina.
