Love the course,,but

Wife and I play here often. We love the course, and the employees. We often get “stuck” behind a group of really slow players, who choose not to let us play through. This only happens when there is no marshal present. Please have on course presence to elevate this issue
Thank you

First Time Playing

First time playing 4/6/2021

Fairways are bad. Ground is hard as a rock with no fluff. Like trying to chip off of concrete. Club house is small. Cook slept in so no food, snacks, or drinks. Greens and Tee boxes were in decent shape. Course was very cheap for 18 holes. Course does offer a couple of nice views of the bay. If looking to have a great score, don’t come here.

Worth the drive over the bridge from Destin

Staying in Destin during spring break and looked to book a next day tee time around 8-9am. For the price and proximity to where we stay I would play this course every time I’m in Destin. Not as easy as you would think and overall was worth the price.

Good value!

Course is a bit rough in places, but greens were good, cost was low for a vacation town, and there are some nice views along the water. Don’t expect a plush course, but all things considered we felt good about our experience.

Decent greens but the rest of the course is...

Many of the fairways and surrounding areas were not only unmowed but had weeds growing up everywhere. It was basically hitting from green tee boxes to greens with wastelands in between. The course doesn’t look like it’s even been attempted to maintain. The layout is decent but in such poor shape you can find many other courses in the area that are far better for the money.

Nice Layout and Good Value

Fairways were open and greens were in decent shape. This course winds through a residential area and is likely the best value for the dollar in the Destin area

Good little course

Good little course, but needs some work on the conditions. You can tell it use to be an awesome course awhile ago. It’s like the ownership changed hands and the new owners stopped taking care of the grounds. Tee boxes were rough with tons of divers, fairways were fair, greens looked great, but haven’t been cut in about a week. It was like putting on carpet. This place has so much potential, but just needs some TLC. Staff was very friendly. Great for the price.

Routing

The course has closed its Lakes nine holes that’s understandable , so they should have rerouted the other two. After finishing #4 you should turn left and play the nine holes at what they call the Marsh and then come back and play the rest of the Bay holes. That would save time and energy and confusion and make it safer for players crossing the roadways. Finishing on #9 of the Bay for 18 holes.

Course could use some work, but the layout was great. This course sits in beautiful surroundings, the pace was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The restaurant was delicious as well.
