Perdido Bay Golf Club has hosted several notable players including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Kite, and Curtis Strange. It also formerly served as the site to the Pensacola Open for a decade-long stretch and while it may not be host anymore it still preserves its integrity as a challenging, championship course. The golf course is long and narrow, rewarding both distance and accuracy. Although it is mostly flat there is some strategic mounding that causes tricky lies throughout. Perdido Bay Golf Club's fairways are flanked by multiple cuts of rough and the greens are large and undulating. Many of the greens, as well as the tees, are also elevated. In addition to the golf course, there are also extensive practice facilities that include a large driving range, putting green, chipping green, and greenside and fairway bunkers.

Overall this course was pretty good. Back nine plays a lot tougher than front and a lot longer. Fairways are generous but if you miss then you are usually in water. Greens were all in good shape. Not too slow not too fast. Fairways all had plenty grass. Bunkers were a little hairy with grass on edges but not bad. Went in afternoon for $33. Would definitely play again for this price. Well worth it. Hard to get nicer course for price.

The course was is good shape, greens were excellent but bunkers were rough. Fairways were amazing when i found them. Staff was very friendly, and went above and beyond. Course was almost empty when i started and the ranger chatted me up and gave tips for 30 minutes! If you are in the area don't miss a chance to play!!!

Coming from the West Coast, this one was a very nice course. Didn't get to see any alligators but saw lots of turtles; it's fairly moderate, has great views, clean and easy to get around. I'll definitely come back! Keep up the good work!

This course has a skills challenge for any level. From T to green is fair. Green to cup is HARD making if fun.<br/> Using Golf Now did save $, but I would have skipped play due to the cold weather had I not been concerned about loosing my $. I know if it is rained out you don't have to pay but what if it is to cold?<br/> Overall I will use Golf Now again.

I love this course. Staff is very friendly. Course is in excellent shape even considering it is the middle of winter. Each hole offers a challenge and you have to think about the approach to each hole. I am here until mid March and hope to play it often.

Had great expectations when I read that the Pensacola Open was played on this course. It wasn't a very interesting course and didn't have any great scenery. Cost too much. Have played nicer courses for less. Was in good shape though considering the winter weather.

I was sent out by myself and decided to skip a few holes since the slow groups wouldn't allow me through. First got harassed by maintenance then the so-called Pro came out to remind me not to rush maintenance, really? It was approaching 9:30 so why is maintenance still getting the front 9 ready? I guess I won't be patronizing this course anytime soon.

The course is in great shape now. It has a few relatively easy holes, a few difficult holes and a few really difficult holes. Depending on which set of tees you wish to use, the course can be moderately difficult of very difficult for the average golfer. The white tees bring a lot more "stuff" into play than the up tees.
