Best greens in Destin

Great condition, even in the off-season. Great driving range with no mats.

Good Course

It was a windy, cold day. I don't think the temperature got above 45*. And I bet the wind chill was about 40*. That said the course was really enjoyable. I was allowed to walk because the course was kind of empty. That helped. It is a good layout in my opinion. The greens were in great shape for this time if the year and true. The fairways were in decent shape but very playable. I'll be back.

Dont Miss This One!

Best track in the Destin area by far! The greens are FAST and true. Treat yourself to some fantastic golf and dont miss this one if you're within 50 miles. You'll thank yourself for doing so. Enjoy and keep it below the hole.

Excellent course

I played with a couple of other fellows from TN by chance we were paired. The course was very nice and in great shape. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. The only draw back was the cost compared to other courses in the area it was a bit much but I enjoyed the round with new friends. If you get the chance definitely worth playing one time.
