Course Facts

The Origins Golf Course is available for The Clubs by JOE Members, their Guests and the Public. The Golf Shop is located in the Watersound Café in the Village Commons.

The course was designed and built with the "short course” concept at its core. The mission: make golf more fun, accessible and attractive to families, beginners and casual golfers. Via its non-penal design and manageable distance (approximately 1,800 yards) the Origins Course both appeals and caters to novices. Yet its regulation-length holes and greens dimensions provide enough challenge and strategy to retain the interest of avid and experienced players. Consistent with the Scottish origins of the game, in which six, nine and 12-hole courses were commonplace.
The name, derived from the course’s eminently walkable routing, is an overt nod to the traditional origins of the game. The course was designed by Love Golf Design, founded by PGA Tour player and PGA Champion Davis Love III in the late 90s. Known for designing traditional golf courses with classical elements, Love Design and St. Joe share a commitment to creating golf experiences that are interesting, enjoyable and challenging.
