The Players' Club at St. James Plantation
4006 St. James Drive
Southport, NC 28461
One of the top rated golf courses along the Southeastern coastline, the Players' Club at St. James Plantation sits just minutes from the sparkling salt waters of the Intracoastal Waterway and some of the most spectacular stretches of beach along North Carolina's coast. Truly a part of the beauty and nature of this area, The Players' Club intertwines with the natural landscape of wild flowers and lush vegetation. Experience golfers enjoy the many challenges and array of bunkers and beams throughout this course. Known as a course that provides some of the most amazing views in the area, Tim Cate designed the course with a rustic beauty unparalleled by other courses in the area. "Golf Digest awarded The Players' Club 4 1/2 stars as one of the "Best Places to Play" in 2006.
All landscaped areas that are entitled to a free drop are now discernable by a white pole with a green cap. When playing on one of these courses, you may drop one club length outside of the landscaped area, but can drop no closer than this to the hole. If players are unable to find one of these white poles with a green cap around an area of mulched pine straw, then the ball is still considered in play. Also, when playing the Players course, the only drop areas approved at this time are the bridges on both hole six and hole seven. The second shot into the marsh on hole six will allow the player to proceed to the bridge and play for his or her fourth shot. And the same follows suit with hole seven. When a player hits the ball from the back tees into the marsh on hole seven he or she are able to proceed to the bridge and play a third shot.
The Players' Club at St. James Plantation also provides golfers with amazing features for before or after their golf games. After a hot day of golfing, enjoy a dip in the large indoor/outdoor swimming pool to relax and wind down the muscles. Relax and find your favorite luxury amidst the 8,000 square-foot clubhouse. Other great amenities include walking and biking trails, a waterfront park as well as a full service marina. Retreat to the bar and swap some of your best "war-stories" and whoppers with other golfers.
