St. James golf communities…81 holes of sheer golf perfection

Four championship golf courses spread across our coastal landscape. Designed by golf legends, Nicklaus Design, P.B. Dye, Hale Irwin & Tim Cate, our elite private courses are highly acclaimed. And one easy membership gives you full access.
Inspired by the grand old game, reserved for you & your guests.

Golf is really big in our community. And our residents enjoy it year round thanks to our amazingly mild Carolina climate. Four impressive courses make up 81 holes. But that’s just the start…

Practice greens, driving range, friendly golf pros, fully stocked Pro Shops and a healthy schedule of clinics and tournaments (big and small) throughout the year keep our golf-loving residents on the swing.

And like our courses, membership here is elegantly designed: one simple membership gives you full access to all of our amazing courses. Really.
