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.

Review course description carefully

Went to course and was basically a par 3 course. Staff was friendly But 1st tee box was 4 deep with families and kids. Due to Pandemic, did not feel faster and left without playing. Would have taken forever to play.

A great place to loosen up your golf body or to sharpen your Golf skills. Easy walking some roots in pathways, see you next snowbird season.

Nice par 3 course

Fun to play. Fairways and greens in nice shape, especially the greens. Gets a lot of play and pace is slow. A lot of senior players and most walking. Has a nice practice area but driving range is off mats.

Great 9 Hole course

Played as a single at 7:45 with cart and had the entire place to myself. Course is in excellent condition....tee boxes to greens.
This course has 7 par 3s and 2 par 4s and water on 7 holes...narrow track.
A great course for the new player and intermediate with nice practice facilities and friendly staff.

Nice par 3 - operationally disorganized

The course is nice, water hazards, lots of grass. They double booked our tee time - asked us to arrive an hour later. It was a busy day - showed up 45 minutes before tee time but only able to hit balls for 5min because of staff shortage- no balls and no cart.

Pleasant surprise

The course was in excellent shape. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in the best shape I have ever seen them. Will be playing there again this week.
