The course has some of the best greens I've seen, but the number of forced carries were excessive. Most holes had a forced carry off the tee and many had a second forced carry before the green. If you are a long hitter this would probably not bother you but for me it detracted from the enjoyment of the game... More

While staying on St. George Island we took some time to get back on the links. A challenging course in great shape. Be sure to take bug spray as this course winds around in many mosquito friendly areas. After golf a great lunch with unbelievable service. One woman tended bar, took and served meals, all with great efficiency and attitude.... More

Beautiful golf course, kept in immaculate condition. Great Staff! Rob, Zack and the lady behind the bar were all super friendly. I'm hoping to get back soon!

My husband played a round of golf here on a Tuesday afternoon and I rode along. He played with a cart for $40! The course was very well maintained, GPS carts. We only saw two other players on the entire 18 holes, we nearly had the entire course to ourselves. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend playing here.

Played twice this week, only planned to play once but had to come back to enjoy it one more time. Never took my driver out of my bag, used every other club I had. GPS in the carts will help you make good decisions, but over confidence will cost you here. Can't wait to come back and play again. The... More

We went and played twice. No wait and almost no one on the course. The course is in pristine condition and one of nicest around. You won't find a nicer course in the area. Be ready for fun and one heck of a challenge. Water or marsh every hole with tight fairways. Bring extra golf balls...you will need them. We... More

Close by to where we are staying is the St. James Bay golf course. Got a deal through GolfNow and am glad I did. The course greens were aeriated the week before and were terrible to land on and putt on. The carts have GPS which is a must. But, you must study the map closely on each hole, because... More

This "forgotten coast" part of Florida does not have many choices for golf but don't worry. Pick this course and enjoy one of the most dramatic and special experiences anywhere. This course is carved from pure wilderness and every hole reminds you of why you play golf. Be aware it can be tough if you cannot clear 200 yards of... More

We recently returned from a weeklong stay at St. James Bay Golf Club. We were in town for a state baseball tournament and were delighted to find this great place. We've stayed at golf clubs in other areas and paid double to triple what we paid at St. James. Our family of five was perfectly comfortable in our three bedroom... More
