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.

Terrific course

Greens were perfect. The course layout was challenging but not unfair. Knowledge of the course would help. Easy to get in a hazrd you didn't realize was there. Friendly staff. All around a great time.

Premium conditions but difficult

Great course. Every green was in perfect condition. The rough was consistent and the layout was fun to play. The course is very unforgiving if you miss the fairway or a green. In a group of single-digit handicaps, there were still many lost balls. The lunch menu in the clubhouse was underwhelming but not bad, just not as amazing as the course.
Would recommend if you prioritize course conditions.

Great Course

First time I played this course. Great staff, pro shop, 19th hole. The course, tee box, fairway, greens were in good to better shape. Probably the only negative was they did not have a cart girl. This is FLORABAMA in July so it was smoking hot and some water/Gatorade/beer would have been good before the turn. Next time I am in Orange Beach I would play the course again.

Fun course in excellent condition

This was my first time playing Lost Key golf club. We took an afternoon away from the beaches and went and played golf. I am happy we decided to go play golf.
The price was high for the quality of the course, but overall it was worth the spend. The practice area was
great and you got some range balls included in the greens fee price. The starter was friendly and very helpful. The greens at Lost Key are awesome.
The greens are smooth, quick and fun to putt with lots of humps and undulations.
Fairways are kept up nice, but the star of the course are the greens.
The course is challenging, but rewarding. There are several holes with forced carries off the tee box and the design of the fairways is deceptive for first time players and you have more room in the fairways than it appears from many of the tee boxes.
Take the time to go play Lost Key golf club. You will not regret it.

Nice, but challenging

Course was immaculate. Some of the purest greens I’ve ever played on. With that said super difficult. Bring plenty of balls. If you are not in the fairway your ball is gone

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
