Golf on the Gulf by Visiting These St. George Island Golf Courses
St. James Bay Golf Club
Just a little over a half-hour from our properties on St. George Island is the beautiful St. James Bay Golf Club in Carrabelle. This 18-hole championship golf course is ideal because it offers a combination of a beautifully manicured golf course, putting greens, breathtaking scenery, and appearances from the diverse array of Florida Wildlife. St. James Bay Golf Club, designed by Robert Walker, is one of the only attractions in the area that is designated an Audubon Signature Sanctuary for cranes, hawks, eagles, and other birds.
If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a black bear or an infamous Florida gator! Plus, the wetlands and water hazards make any game a bit more challenging for an advanced player.
No matter what you need throughout the day, St. James Bay likely offers it. Their Yamaha golf carts come equipped with a GPS, Bluetooth, and phone charger. If you’re hungry after a full day of playing golf, you’ll want to try out their onsite restaurant, Crooked River Grill for delicious coastal cuisine.
St. James Bay Golf Club is open to the public, so anyone can book a tee time on their website!
St. Joseph’s Bay Country Club
Another great place to golf on the Gulf is St. Joseph Bay Golf Club in Port St. Joe, Florida. This par-72, 18-hole championship golf course offers spacious fairways that are perfect for any experience level.
There, you can take a swing at the driving range or putting range. Then, when you’re ready for a break, cool off in the pool, or enjoy lunch or dinner at the full-service restaurant, Shaggy Bay Supper Club. Make sure to gather your buddies after the game for a cold drink because the restaurant includes a fully stocked bar as well!
