The player-friendly Blackstone Golf Course boasts a reputation of being an excellent course for families. The gently undulating landscape is approachable to beginners while still providing a fair amount of challenge. The rolling terrain requires accuracy but most holes allow for short irons if you're willing to risk hitting your ball into the treetops. There is a stream that meanders through the golf course, coming into play on a number of holes. It also crosses through Blackstone's driving range. Strategically placed bunkers are also scattered throughout. The greens are in excellent condition, providing great putting surfaces. Blackstone Golf Course has garnered a local following because of its playability, which is helped by three sets of tees, and extremely reasonable rates. It's an excellent location for a casual round.

Nice course for the money

Pretty nice course for the money. My daughter and I played and really enjoyed the course.
Play was slow because there was a threesome - each driving a separate cart that played pretty slow. We caught them on the back nine on hole 11. There wasn’t anyone behind us or in front of them & they didn’t ask use to play through. We waited on every hole after catching them. We would still play again- we understand that it’s not the fault of the course.
The staff was very friendly & helpful.

Quality Course

Tight fairways; overall nice greens; undulating terrain. Don’t like how the par 5s (at least two of them) inhibit going for it in two.

Great shape

This course is a nice alternative to the crowded, overpriced courses in the Destin area. It is in great shape and has some great holes. Unfortunately, some are not as good. Maybe they just don't suit my eye or my game. Enjoyable round. Will probably play here again.

For such a good course there was hardly anyone on it. We really enjoyed the course. It was extremely tempting to venture into the brush because there were so many golf balls left unattended. Love playing this course and is the best deal for the money in the FWB area.

Different than other Florida Courses

Blackstone is GREAT for a change of pace from the typical Florida courses that rely on wind, water and bunkering to create a defense. Blackstone has elevation change on the majority of holes. There are many elevated tees and the golfer finds himself/herself hitting into both elevated greens and to lower greens from elevated fairways. We had more uphill, downhill and sidehill lies than flat lies and that was hitting the majority of the fairways. There are several tees that allow the golfer to choose the right amount of challenge for their game.
Greens were very nice and rolled true. There is bit more grain to contend with than on some of the other local courses we frequent.
Fairways had been overseeded with winter grass, but there were some significant issues near the cart paths with water erosion.
Good course. Good layout. Greens nice. Good staff. AND Very Good value for the area!

A lot of elevation changes, wouldn't know it's florida

Great deal on hot deal. They won't honor free drink deal if you go through golf now. So golf now shouldn't offer that option.
