We had really almost given up on nice courses around the area and then we went to St. James Bay. The staff was so friendly and the course was beautiful!!! We will definately be returning! Thank you!!!

The restaurant here is really nice. Nice view and pleasant surroundings. The specials are always "interesting" and priced reasonable. They have a good brunch on Sundays also. The service does tend to be slow so don't come if you are in a hurry. They just don't have enough help on busy days.

We have stayed here several times and always enjoyed it ! We also buy a pool pass in the summer so when we don't stay here we can use the pool for the kids. Place is clean and never really busy. The restaurant is nice,clean and good food !

Even very good golfers should bring two boxes of golf balls, as nearly every single hole has a forced carry of 150-250 yards, depending on your tee choice. Without GPS, the course would truly be unplayable, as you need to know things like 185 yards to clear the swamp, but don't hit driver because 230 yards is the next swamp.... More

Beautiful and challenging course. Every hole has water or marsh to contend with. Couple that with substantial bunkering and quick greens and you have an idea of what St. James is about. Typically the course is not crowded. It is amazing that such a treat has gone mostly undiscovered.

The course is stunning and well maintained. Staff was accommodating for our charity events. This is the fourth year we've had Rock By The Tee there and we'll be going back!

This course is very challenging. I'm a member of a well-known club in Ponte Vedra Beach and this course needs far more thought than just a tee shot and a mid-iron. You will use nearly every club in your bag. My recommendation is to get a yardage book, speak with Rob (head pro) and have fun. Perhaps a stop at... More

A great course for golfers that shoot under 90. Very challenging. When I played in June the greens had just been top dressed with sand so we didn't get a good feel for the greens. The greens are probably great in July. I lost so many balls on my outing that at the turn I had to get some more.... More

If it weren't for the houses all along it it would be one of the nicest places left on this environmentally ravaged Earth.

This is an exciting golf course in the Florida Panhandle just outside Carrabelle. It is in excellent condition and is very challenging. It's over the marsh/hazards and then some target golf so it keeps golfers on their toes. A lot of holes have hazards to carry on the drive and several also have hazards requiring placement of shots/laying up while... More
