Nice course

The course was in good shape and pace of play was steady. Staff was friendly. Range is included in round. Nice carts with GPS, cart beverage service. I’ll play there next time I’ll in town for sure.

Great course

Course was in great shape and the staff was very friendly. It is a great layout and is pretty forgiving. Greens were in excellent shape and rolled very nicely. Greens were quick but not too fast. Very enjoyable.

On vacation, great place to play

First time player on this course and had a great experience. Beautiful course, well designed. Fairways were a little thin but greens played perfectly. They just a lot of rain so course was pretty wet and soft but I will definitely play it again soon.

Love this place.

Every time I’ve played here, the course conditions were great. Greens are some of the best in Destin. Fairways were aerified and still great conditions. This super knows his business. Definitely worth the price!
