St. James Bay Golf Resort

The area’s only Audubon Signature Sanctuary golf course, St. James Bay offers an eco-friendly layout, outstanding course conditioning, GPS carts, hard court tennis, aerobics center, The Crooked River Grill restaurant, and is open to the public with surprisingly affordable rates.

Robert Walker worked closely with Audubon International to create a course in complete harmony with nature. This perfectly manicured 18-hole championship course gives golfers the ability to play a more strategic game of golf. Wetlands and water hazards are present on every hole with bunkering perfectly fashioned to define the layout. St. James Bay creates a challenge for even the most skillful golfer, yet it’s still a course golfers of all abilities will love. All golf carts are equipped with GPS systems. The practice facility features a full driving range, chipping green, bunker, and two putting greens. The pro shop includes apparel, accessories and rental clubs. Golf instruction is available from our resident PGA Golf Pro. New Ticket Pricing-Effective 2/1/15.  Two levels of ticket offerings. Please inquire in the Golf Shop.
