This was my first time at the property. You enter the property via a closed gate and the security officer was friendly and helpful. Upon approaching the clubhouse I was impressed with the cleanliness of the practice area and parking lot. My greeting in the pro shop was professional and friendly. I booked my tee time via Golfnow, which I know can be looked down on at some golf clubs but not here, I was treated like a club member. The range is large and complimentary balls are in abundance. A large chipping and putting green are adjacent to the range where Bill the starter was extremely helpful and friendly as well as getting us started on time. I was paired up with another single and a pair to make our foursome. The pace of play was 1:50 for the first nine and about 2 hours for the back nine. I understand that the grass is dormant this time of year so it was not as lush and green as I'm used to so the beauty aspect was not visually appealing. Once on the green I was surprised at how well and true the ball rolled as they did not look as good as you would expect. The fairways were in very good shape for the winter and the rough was short. They have numerous tee boxes for your level of play. There is enough water and bunkers to make it fun. The carts appear to be fairly new with modern and accurate GPS. Overall my experience was a very good one and will definitely be back. I can only imagine how beautiful this course is in the summer. I have played other courses in Destin, not to be critical of the others but this is a very superior course.
Excellent course. Challenging and fair for all levels. The staff was very friendly and informative. The cart staff drove the cart right up to my car and loaded my bag and came with me to the parking lot after the round to drop my bag off. The range was first class with brand new balls and in great condition. The course was in excellent shape. The greens were under some new seeding in some areas but were still quick and true. Overall a great course.
Good value using Golfnow
Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were slower than expected. Got a good deal on GolfNow but not worth the full price they were asking compared to other courses in the area. We played early so pace of play wasn’t an issue. Apples in the barrel at the turn were a nice touch. Overall good course and would recommend it.
Fine Course/Poor Green Conditions
Regatta Bay is an excellent facility. The Practice area is excellent. Course design is superb. The tee blocks provide a good challenge for every level of golfer.
Unfortunately, the greens are very poor. It is evident that repairs have been implemented with limited success. It appears that several greens will have to be reconstructed.
We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon.
Greens in rough shape
Staff very friendly. Had an early morning discounted rate so the value was good. Would have been more disappointed if I would have paid full price. Greens were in poor condition. Staff told us after round they were talking about redoing all of the greens
Thanks for taking the time to review our course. We apologize for the experience. We hope that you return to Regatta in the future to give us another try.
Great course, great weather, fair but tough course, greens roll great. I gotta join this place.
Loved layout but course in bad shape
I found everything about the club and course beautiful and staff was great. The part that was extremely disappointing was the course itself. The fairways were very thin, rough was so short shot would hold in them and the greens were the worse I have played since being down in the area. They were bumpy, patchy with what looked to be a fungus and all round just in bad shape. The bunkers appeared to be in great shape. Maybe give it a try next year. Thank goodness we got somewhat good price through GolfNow.

Greens having issues
Really enjoyed the round. Staff was friendly.. practice area is better than average. There are a few postcard holes and a decent layout. Course condition was fair for being in mid winter. There was something going on with the greens that was causing them to thin out. I will play this again if I catch it at the right price point.

Great course and staff
Great golf course. I have played golf here before when conditions were better. I’m not sure why greens were spotty in places but I have no doubt they will be great again soon. The management team and staff are second to none.

1st time playing this course, layout very good, scenic, well groomed. Putting surface sparse on some holes, likely due to all the rain received early in the month. I was the first one off at 7:15am therefore pace was not an issue. I would say a must play in the area. My only beef is the golfnow tee times are very early ie 7:20 and 7:30am....please open it up a bit!

Cool, but a great round!
A rather cool day in the middle of January, but the round was very enjoyable. Enjoyed the course and the layout of the course. The starter on that day was a very enjoyable guy—very friendly! Would play the course again.

Course was in great condition. Played alone and never saw the group in front of me with 7:30 a.m. tee time. It is a must play for any visitors in area, just try to find a hot deal tee time.
