Too much $ for the experience. Odd layout. Same price as best area courses. Doesn't make sense.

Cart paths need attention, some tee boxes are a little rough. It’s a fun course to loosen up on and find your game again after the winter break. Greens are very good, practice area is excellent with four different greens.

Great Short Course

Great little course to work on short game! Greens were surprisingly in good shape. Cart path needed work, felt like I was in a mud bog sometimes but luckily Cart was 4wd!!!! Overall a great little track to play as a warmup or just to mess around.

Golf Garden

Great Par3 course if your short on tIme. Played @ 7:30 am and nobody was there. Was plenty windy to mess your golf game a bit. Course was in great shape. The greens were very slow from it being wet, but overall enjoyed the challenge.

Exceptional Value for Golf in Destin

My family recently played the Golf Garden of Destin. It is a very nice layout for a Par 3 Executive course. For four of us to play and renting clubs was under $100. It is Par 29 with seven Par 3’s and two Par 4’s. The course is family friendly with a full driving range and two miniature golf courses on site. This course does offer special rates for seniors and military. If you are looking for a good value, Golf Garden of Destin is your course.

Executive Course with lights!

I dont know what the course is like during the day, but it really is a blast to play under the lights. There arent a ton of these around, and it's pretty fun to get to play at night. You do get a cart, but you really dont need anything more than a 5-iron out here. Stop by and have some fun though! Great for kids
