Great Municiple Course

Actually played the Pines Course, but it defaults to the Oaks Course for some reason. The course is in great condition. The fairways are green and plush and the greens are also full, no weeds or bare spots. All in all, excellent condition.

Great Improvement!

Played 2 months ago and the construction of the new irrigation system really took it's toll on both sides, Pine and Oaks. Greens were rough as well as most of the other areas, tee box and fairways. Just played both sides and congratulations for all the hard work and effort. Wonderful conditions and the greens are superb for a municipal course. Will not disappoint!

Pace was slow because of a fivesome ahead of us. Greens were a little bumpy on some but overall a good value.

Course in great shape

Can’t remember the course (Oaks) ever being in better shape. Keep up the good work.

Certainly would have been nice to have a beverage cart available. It was 100 degrees with no beverages available.

Thank you

Summer Heat

Yes, its hot now in the FL Panhandle. But the course is in great condition. No weeds on the greens, fairways are plush and green. Always a fun course to play. Last few outings are taking a full 4 hours.

Good course

The course was very playable. I liked that me and my wife Kim play alone they didn’t Pair us up with somebody else. The course has some nice rolling hills tougher shots narrow fairways. If we ever come back to Fort Walton Beach we will play again. Staff is very friendly and the starter was funny. We had it a enjoyable experience playing here.

Bad Greens

Nice old municipal style layout. Fun to play but greens are in very poor condition. On a 4 foot put your chances of making it even with the proper line and speed are no better than 50/50. Really a shame.
