Enjoyable Easter Round

Nice track. Played it from the tips at 6,700+ yards. Course demands the use of every club in the bag. Overall Course condition was average. Fairways need some love and water. Some very skinny lies. Greens were above average with a lot of slope and good pace. Practice facilities are plentiful. Nice range, chipping/pitching complex and practice green. Overall, I would recommend this course for every level of player and affordable.

Great greens

The greens at Saint James are a five star. Unfortunately the rest of the course isn’t. The tee boxes need a lot of work., fairways are cut extremely tight. With lots of bare spots. The area around the greens also need a lot of work, lots of dirt and bare spots.

Bad conditions AKA Goat Hill type course

The overall condition of the tee boxes and fairways are not very good.

Greens and bikers are good.

You can do much better at other surrounding courses for the money.

I would not recommend this course.

Yep - would play this course again

Friendly staff that took pride in their work. Played this course based on reviews stating “fast & smooth” greens. Most greens at courses we played in this area were slow & bumpy. Although this course had greens that were smooth, were a bit on the slow side. Pace was fast, past the ranger a few times, 3-3/4 hrs . Fairways in good condition and not tight. Water in play on a few holes. Enjoyable round and will play again on our next trip to the area.

Not a great course

I’m happy we played here once, but it’s not a great course. Tee boxes are very sparse, sand traps are missing grass and have sand on the outside of the traps. Had to wait on every hole.

Fun course

Besides that it was really windy, the course was fun because there was roll on the fairways, greens held well and rolled fast and true. Pace was very slow at first but picked up through the back nine. The starter was awesome, with helpful hints and very friendly. Definitely will play there again.
