Comments: Located just a scant 2 miles south of 44, St. James Golf Club is a 9 hole course that provides a challenge for golfers at every level. The course provides 2 separate tees to give you a different look if you want to play 18. Even though the slope rating is 119 it is a pretty tough course, primarily because of the elevated and sloped greens. Every green is relatively small with minimal undulation, but the elevation and slope make them reasonably difficult, so . . . your approach shots need to be very accurate. And, because of the slope, the greens are very fast moving downhill and very slow going uphill. Besides the difficult greens the course is fairly open and there were not a lot of hazards with which to contend. Uncharacteristically, I missed the only bunker on the course. The general manager, Shay Abel, is as nice as you will find and wears many hats at the Club. For more pictures of the course go to:
