Rating 74.0

Perdido Bay Golf Club has hosted several notable players including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Kite, and Curtis Strange. It also formerly served as the site to the Pensacola Open for a decade-long stretch and while it may not be host anymore it still preserves its integrity as a challenging, championship course. The golf course is long and narrow, rewarding both distance and accuracy. Although it is mostly flat there is some strategic mounding that causes tricky lies throughout. Perdido Bay Golf Club's fairways are flanked by multiple cuts of rough and the greens are large and undulating. Many of the greens, as well as the tees, are also elevated. In addition to the golf course, there are also extensive practice facilities that include a large driving range, putting green, chipping green, and greenside and fairway bunkers.

THE BEST!!!

I played terribly all throughout the round! Course is in good shape.
When I got home after driving 30 minutes, I realized I did not have my wallet! So...at 7:00 in the evening, I drove back to the course. Fortunately there were still some young guys working in the cart barn and one of them had found the wallet and secured it in the office. I returned early this morning and retrieved the wallet...many thanks to Keaton!! My faith in humanity has been re-affirmed!!!

Day with husband

We’ve been golfing here all Fall, Winter and Spring using Golfnow and today when we arrived. about 45 minutes early the starter said we couldn’t tee off till 15 minutes before tee time. Course had absolutely no one teeing off and from where we travel to get there hard to know about traffic. Anyway, we putted and killed our time, but still thought this Starter was a bit on the rude side saying we only paid $33 and if wanted to start early we’d have to go inside and pay the $65 rate. Play was fine until caught up to a group of 5 that teed off at the time we arrived. We decided to pass them and same Starter/Marshall asked if everything ok. We later saw him cleaning golf balls he found on the course. He was working with another guy in the beginning, so maybe that is why so tough on our start time. All the other Starters this past 7 months were very nice and helpful. Course is nice and we do enjoy it just felt he took his job a bit to the extreme on start time when no one around or even close to tee off time. Felt like he had an attitude towards folks booking with GOLFNOW.

Meh

Was very excited to play it for the first time after reading the reviews. Unfortunately it failed to meet expectations. Slow pace of play. 5 hour round. Greens rolled well but some where splotchy, most were dried out and turning brown. Fairways were somewhat thin and just ok. Overall not worth the 1.5 hour drive.

Nice variety of holes

Generous off the tee. Enjoyed the variety and varying difficulty of the holes. Greens were smooth but slow. Hurricane Sally wreaked havoc on some trees on the course, some of which has not been cleaned up yet. Fringe areas of the course are not maintained well. Carts are equipped with GPS which was helpful.

Nice course

Pace of play was really good! Course was in good shape. Greens were cut a little high so they were very slow. Premium for hitting the ball straight.

Staff was friendly.

Worth taking a look.

Sub par golf

Staff was great, very friendly all around. Pro shop and bar was decent and the golf carts were nice. And the greens weren't too bad. Pretty smooth rolling about an 8 maybe sold 7.

Other than that everything else was kinda bland. Obviously there was a hurricane that went through not too long ago and some trees were down that they were working on. I'm not counting that. The course design was very repetitive. Pretty much the same holes back and forth. Nothing really jumps out at you as a signature hole or anything.

The surroundings aren't much to brag about with some fairly rough looking yards and houses. Tees boxes and fairways were ok but it is still early spring and not sure the grass has had time to fill in yet. However one tee box wasn't moved.

I got a hot deal on golfnow for $33 but I wouldn't want to pay anymore than that.

Horrible shape

I haven’t seen this course in that bad of shape since I’ve been playing here. Staff was just a couple of kids kicked back with no care in the world it seemed. Just unprofessional. Most of the tee boxes were like playing in the sand.
