About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6887 yards
Slope 135
Rating 73.7

St. James Plantation in Southport boasts 81 holes of championship golf. There are four 18-hole golf courses and one, the Members Club, has a nine-hole extension. Hale Irwin, a three-time U.S. Open winner, designed the 27-hole layout. The original 18 holes of the course present a challenging test even for advanced players, which is why a more playable nine-hole layout was added. No matter what skill level, golfers can find a combination that suits them on the Members Club course. Multiple tee boxes make the course even more accommodating. Water hazards come into play on a few holes and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout. The golf course is in good company too, it is joined by a Nicklaus design layout as well as one designed by P.B. Dye.

Big fairways and greens

If you like wide fairways, big level greens and layout variety, play the Members Course at St James. Had a little mix up with tee times, after I made a change. But got with a group of residents/members that we so very nice and helpful on the course. The golf course was in excellent condition, some bunkers and ponds along the fairways. They had placed red&white flags at the beginning of each water feature. Never seen that before, but was helpful. Houses line every hole but sit back far enough so there is room for the errant tee shot. The third cut rough did swallow the ball, but you can play out. Just we real good 9 and scored quite well. Multiple multiple tee boxes for any level player.
