Best golf in the area

My family and I have been coming to the Fort Walton Beach area for the past five years now. During those five years we have played multiple courses in the immediate Fort Walton area. I have to say that Fort Walton Beach (Public) Golf Course is an amazing, well maintained, and phenomenal course to play. In my opinion it’s hands down the best course that we have played in the five years coming here. We look forward to many more rounds of golf on these two courses (Pine, Oaks).

Course in good shape

Greens are slow. Holes are worn at the edges and are due to be re-cut.

Really for the Pines

Actually played the Pines course. Pace of play was outstanding. The Greens had been top-dressed with sand - so their speed was VERY inconsistent - some decent - some super slow. Should have told us about the greens before we paid for the round.

Great course

I normally play the Pines Course but really enjoyed the Oaks. Rewards good drives and plays tough if you miss the fairway. Pines is a lot more forgiving. Oaks is the shorter of the two course but I think more interesting. Either way FWB Golf Course is well worth the reasonable rates the charge. Great courses to bring visitors.

Great value

Had a lot of fun playing this course. Drove roughly 45 minutes based on previous reviews and perceived value for the price. The reviews were spot on. My son who is 7 had a lot of fun playing this layout. We chose the pines track because of its flat nature and little water. A couple of spots on this course were a little confusing based on twists and turns Of the cart path but it was a great day. Wish it was closer so I could play it again. Seems like an older course. Only complaint was I wish there would’ve been a beverage/snack cart. We didn’t bring a cooler and it was hot! There were coolers of water every 5-6 holes. Luckily we had a bottle water to refill.

Playable course; great condition.

I have played this course three times on trips from Ohio. The course has always been in good shape. The staff is always been friendly. The bloody Mary’s are probably the best in the world. Drink the bloody Mary’s after play :-)

Good course for the money

I played the Oaks Course. It was challenging with a lot of dog legs but not a lot of places to lose your ball. The greens were healthy but slow. The fairways were fair condition. The clubhouse had bare bones minimum to purchase. The people were nice.
