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

January on the Forgotten Coast. Stayed in one of the Villas, very comfortable and quiet. Not many people around so we had everything to ourselves. They have a great workout room with treadmills, free weights, multipurpose weight machine and aerobic equipment. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Played three rounds on a tough golf course surrounded by nature, very relaxing.... More
