excellent practice golf course

It's a nice golf course, except it's only 9 holes.
I would be playing more golf here if it has 18 holes.
However, everything was super, especially the staff behind the pro shop counter, he was very helpful on explaining how the golf course lay out and etc...

Good but not worth its High price for a par 3 course

I golfed today with a buddy. This course is in pretty good shape and it was a very enjoyable round. It’s a par 3 course with 2 par 4 holes mixed in there. I like working on my short game but I should’ve done more research into this course. When looking over this course on the Golfnow app I saw that the price was kinda pricey but I was thinking for a regular golf course in Destin it won’t be a terrible price. But when I got to the course and got the scorecard I saw that it’s a pretty short course distance wise and had 7 par 3 holes and only 2 par 4 holes. For the price I cannot recommend the course only if you are willing to pay around $62 for a 9 hole par 3 course. If I come back here again I’ll have to take advantage of the hot deals that are shown on the Golfnow app. I guess that going to another course like Emerald Bay or Raven Golf Club is definitely worth spending a little extra money on to play a round at a great course.

Fun day

Had a great day here swinging the clubs with friends. I thought it was a great to do just that and still have time to get to the beach and continue my vacation. Great price and I hope to visit in the evening my next trip back. I sure would like to experience night golf!

Not worth the night golf

We played this course because it had good reviews for a cool 9 hole night golf course. It was not what we thought. Course was in very poor condition for the price and was barely lit up to even be considered night golf.

Great place for us non yuppie players

I appreciated this course being a fun short course.
Great for someone who just wants to play at their own pace.
Great for people who are new, don't get to play much, and/or just don't want the hassle of a upscale course.
Prepare to lose balls on the 8th hole.
I'd love to play this course every day.

Fun little executive course

this is a well kept and nicely manicured short course. A great break when you don't have a ton of time. The greens were super and the fairways nice.
