Second time playing this course with my son-in-law. Every hole seems to have swampland to hit across. We play from the senior tees and seem to lose a lot of balls, very tough course. Greens seem to be in good condition because of all the rain we’ve had recently. Guess I’ll play it again but only course near where were staying on St. George Island.
This used to be a fairly decent course. Unfortunately, over the last year or two, the course has been poorly managed - both from a maintenance perspective as well as the from office. The course conditions are poor and getting worse. The pace of play is slow and uncontrolled. There is no longer GPS on the carts (now need to use an app on your phone - a must) or ice and water at the start.
Great Course...and Challenging
St. James Bay is a beautiful, well-maintained course with all the amenities. The staff are very friendly. Bring a lot of balls, though. The course has hazards to negotiate on every hole. For me, there are a couple of hazards which are impossible to get over. Nonetheless, I would play this course every day if I could.
Beautiful Interesting Golf
The course is part of a bird sanctuary, so the wildlife and plant life around the course is beautiful. It’s a tricky little course; very short, you can play irons of the tee most of the day. Very interesting layout. Staff 8/ the friendliest you will ever meet. The prices in the pro shop for apparel are amazing - I bought two shirts they were such a good deal. Also the grill had a Kentucky Derby party going on with a $10 lunch plate. All in all it was a great day
This course was the hardest course I have ever played. I am not that good to be fair.
course was fun. can’t use a driver on many holes because of hazards which was different than most places. also it rained all monday and we teed of first thing tuesday morning. course drained well and hardly any wet spots.
Not great for beginners.
We were staying on St. George Island for a few days and had brought our clubs with the expectation of playing some golf. We didn't have a little hiccup with the green fees. Their website said it was $40 at 1pm, but they told us that rate wasn't until 2pm. I showed them on my phone and they honored the price. Thank you.
The course is very challenging for beginner or less skilled players like me. You have to hit over a large area of thicket on almost every tee. Bring lots of golf balls. Not sure if I'd risk venturing too far into the bushes to look for lost balls as it's Florida and there's probably something that will eat you in there.
Overall I had an enjoyable round.
This is a very challenging course for a double bogey golfer but that's one of the reasons I like it so much. Beautiful scenery. Very well maintained course despite the heavy rains we've been having lately. Will definitely return soon.
Course is in great shape.
We play this course every year when we stay at St George Island. The course was the most crowded we have seen. The Marshall did an excellent job spacing us in the mid morning so that we had a wonderful experience.
The course is in great shape. We highly recommend you play this course.
Excellent layout. Naturally beautiful course and challenging holes. Ready to play again.
A lot to Love
Beautiful course. Challenging. We look forward to returning
Love the course layout and GPS system is excellent
Bring extra balls
Don't take out the big stick on every hole. Play smart. I played much better on the back than the front. Unless your down the middle on every tee off shot play smart and hit your second shot. Marsh will have you thinking...should I go for it.....Watch out for number 15....
Great challenging course
We loved this course.we are very keen golfers,and booked here at a really good rate with Golfnow.as we hadn’t played it before, found it very challenging as there are a many holes with a huge amount of carry .. However,we went back a few days later, with course knowledge,and throughly enjoyed it. The greens had just been treated,however,they were great.the scenery was lovely,as were all the staff. We arrived a bit early,and as the course was quiet,we were told if we wanted to,we could T -off.. driving range was included in our price as was a car that with gps,which was important to keep an eye on!
I had not played this course in a couple of years and it did not disappoint The course was wet but still
in great shape Greens were perfect
Challenging course that requires thinking before hitting shots. Lots of landing areas.
Beautiful Course Very Challenging
Great place to play. It is short and narrow. Would play again just bring a ball for each hole.
Love this course
Played here on a tip from a friend and really enjoyed the course. You can make the course as hard as you want by changing tee boxes. The 2 par 5's on the back nine are as good as anywhere. A little off the beaten path, but worth the effort.
