The Saint James Golf Program has enjoyed much success since its inception in 1982. The Trojans were 4A State Champions in 2015, they have finished Runner-Up in the State Championship six times (94, 98, 02, 03, 11, 13) and finished third in the tournament twice (01, 08). The program has reached the State Tournament (top eight teams) 13 times; won the Sub-State Tournament once; won the Sectional Tournament seven times, and won the Capital City Conference seven times.
The 2014 Saint James Golf Program consists of three teams; a Varsity, Junior Varsity, and a Middle School Team. They practice at Wynlakes, Arrowhead, and Lagoon Park. The Varsity plays a full schedule which includes 14 playing dates. They have been invited to participate in the top tournaments in the state this season; The Bradley Johnson Memorial at Greystone CC; The Tom Bell Memorial Tournament at Limestone Springs; The Azalea City Challenge in Mobile, AL; The Battle at the Beach in Gulf Shores; The Joe King Memorial in Auburn; and the program hosts the Blue Grey Invitational at Wynlakes and Lagoon in Montgomery. The Varsity Golf team not only participates in the AHSAA spring season, but also competes as individuals in the SJGT (Southeastern Junior Golf Tour) and AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) Golf Associations in the Fall and Summer.
The Junior Varsity and Middle School Golf Teams play a nine date season and host the River Region Junior Varsity/Middle School Golf League. Teams all across the region come in a play at Lagoon Park every Tuesday afternoon in March and April. They also participate in individual matches at Arrowhead Country Club.
This past off-season, the Saint James Golf Program hosted a BCS Championship Travel Package Raffle Fundraiser that raised $10,000 for the benefit of the program. The winner of the raffle was awarded two tickets to the BCS National Championship along with two airplane tickets and transportation to and from Pasadena through Total Sports Travel Agency. The money they raised purchased new golf bags and apparel, and helped pay for the travel costs of the many tournaments in which they will participate this year. The fundraiser helped raised program awareness throughout the community and the region as several local businesses pinched in to help the team sell tickets.
The Saint James Golf Team is led by Head Coach, Nigel Card and Head Junior VarsityMiddle School Coach, Jeff Corley. For any questions concerning Saint James Golf, please feel free to contact Coach Card at email@example.com.
