Tons of Personality

This is a very nice track. Greens are great. Course has a lot of challenges holes. Front nine is pretty straight forward, Back nine is tree-lined and has a very unique character. Course was extremely fun and definitely made me use all the clubs in my bag .

This is definitely a hidden gem in Destin. A true MUST PLAY !

Better fore Less

Not really sure how they get a Almost 5 Star Rating, overall not bad but for almost $90 a round I expected more greener fairways and smoother Greens, I just feel like they could have done a little bit more with the cost, to offset the condition
