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.

Change of pace from flat land courses

Ok this course very challenging but fun to play. The greens are in great shape and the rest of the course is coming along. The tee boxes set up with all the red fill in dirt was a pain but manageable.

This course is a hidden gem away from the busy beaches. I love the layout of the holes. You need to hit it straight or you will be in pine trees. The greens are in good shape and are a fair test. This my third time to play this course my way home from a beach vacation. Well worth the stop.

Pure Golf

Pure Golf....Not one house on this course...plays challenging if you don't hit it straight. Cross a creek severalties so calculating yardage and carry are a must,......Greens are very nice and oversewed currently so there will be a transition going soon.....The staff is super friendly and inviting.....we'll be returning this summer......

3 TIMES IS 2 WEEKS

GREAT price on GOLFNOW. Course is a little out of the way but s worth the trip. Good greens and a nice layout.
Around 4 hours to play. Usually teed off early. $3.50 for small bucket. The grass for this and all courses is mainly still dormant and a bit of a challenge. Fairways seem a little narrow.

Quality and Value

Played 5 rounds in 3 days and walked three rounds. Greens were "A-" , only because they were just a little thin - probably because of a cold snap earlier. Really like that they apparently smooth out, with sand, the unrepaired ball marks on the greens. Bill and his staff (Jamey, Riley, and everyone, in fact) were very helpful and nice. Third year I've played there because of my two fundamentals I look for in a course - quality and value.

A Excellent Course

Greens and fairways were in excellent shape. Staff were wonderful as was the pace of play. Worth the 45 minute drive from Destin. The course could charge more and I would still recommend

No disrespect, but if you want to pay more, go ahead - just don't encourage Blackstone to raise prices for the rest of us. A decent, fair price is one of the main reasons why so many folks play there.
