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.

Natchez

Perdido Bay Golf Club was a great course with a beautiful layout and deer and ducks to enjoy. The greens were in excellent shape and rather fast. I would encourage anyone to play.

Golf Marshall

This was the second time I’ve been to this course. My buddy and I had a special 2:20 tee time on Golf Now. We got there an hour early, ate lunch at the bar, then warmed up by hitting a large bucket of balls. The old man Marshall came up and asked if we were 2:20 tee time. We said yes and he threw his hands up saying we’re ready for you. I wondered if I lost track of time but looked at my watch; it wasn’t even 2:10pm. We went over to the first hole an he was trying to pack us in with another GolfNow twosome. The fire Marshall acted like a pompous jerk with his other Golf Marshall buddy. We usually play around 3 1/2 hour golf but were bottlenecked the whole time. Won’t be coming back to this course but they probably don’t care. I’m 41 years old and a teacher and coach. I haven’t been treated like this since I was 16. Be professional and treat people with respect whether they use GolfNow or not.

OK at best

The ratings / reviews I read to select playing this course were too high. The greens were fuzzy and extremely slow. The rough was solid weeds, the fairways were OK. Hard to believe this course hosted a PGA event for 10 years and went very much downhill in the next 30.
