Lost Key Golf Club is conveniently situated equidistant from the historic downtown area of Pensacola and the pristine white sand beaches of Orange Beach and the Gulf Shores. The Arnold Palmer-designed layout was Florida's first golf course to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. It underwent a major renovation in 2006 that included the addition of 2,200 native trees, 13,000 wetland plantings, and the resurfacing of the tees, greens, fairways, and rough. The golf course now presents a formidable test for even the most seasoned golfers. The greens are large and undulating and the flat fairways are lined with trees. There are also doglegs fairways on six holes and sand bunkers on several others. Lost Key Golf Club's signature hole is the par-3 13th hole, which requires a tee shot over water to a partial island green that rolls across dramatic elevation changes.

Yikes!

First time to play here - VERY unforgiving, very narrow and few bailout areas. Course knowledge would be huge for precise ball placement. If you’re a 15 handicap and up, you will not enjoy this course.
Greens were in fantastic shape! Some fairways were great, others were burned up
I enjoyed my round but it’s a “play 1 time only” for me

Down a dozen

Course is in GREAT shape! Greens are just unbelievable. Lost exactly12 balls during the round. It would help if there were more sandy dunes along the fairway to “catch” your ball before it goes bye bye. Some holes have them but not enough. Played a threesome in 3 1/2 hrs. Great course but feels like 15 rounds with Ali after you’re done

Great course for your buck

Great course for the price. Fairways are kept up better than any course I’ve ever played. Greens were being aerated at the time, but the friendliness of the staff and the layout of the course made it well worth it. The course is challenging, but rewarding for those who are good with low irons. Overall 9/10.

Where's the marshal at?

Course got way backed up on the back nine, and we never saw a marshal anywhere at any time during our round. So we ended up just leaving without finishing.

Tough!

Beautiful course, tight, no room for a driver, greens absolutely the best there is, lots of wet land, it is an island after all, and I would play it again and again. If you slice one in the bushes, don’t plan to go in after it without a guide.
