I really enjoy this course every time I play here. The opening hole can be a bit deceiving because it is by far the easiest hole on the course. After that look out. A lot of elevation change. Greens are grainey but a good speed. Excellent for the price. I play here each time I'm in the area.

The courses are in excellent condition this time of year. Greens are cut down and faster. Fairways are plush and green. I played the Falcon Course, not the Eagle as the review may indicate. I'm sure the Eagle is in just as good of condition as the Falcon. The Golf Course Super intendant has done a fabulous job on improving the courses. A really challenging pair of courses to play.

The course was in very good condition. Most of the holes are pretty straight forward; however, several require precise placement of certain shots. Not a whole lot of sand, but some strategically placed depending on which tee boxes you play. The staff was extremely nice and helpful.

Very surprised how good this course was setup. The greens rolled very true, moderately fast, and were receptive to approach shots. The fairways were green, lush, and tight. Didn't see any bare spots (on the greens either). The terrain here surprised me. A LOT of elevation change. I would definitely play this course again.

I actually played the Falcon course not the Eagle. The course was not in great condition overall. I rented clubs which were a joke. I had a left handed PW that I could not use because I'm right handed. The layout doesn't take you back to the clubhouse after the front nine so I was stuck with not having the use of the wedge. Not enjoyable at all. Not happy driving 30 minutes for the experience.

We enjoyed playing this course! Fairways, greens and tee-boxes were all in good shape. Enjoyed the rolling terrain that the course is laid out on. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Destin. The other good news, is that you don't have to be military to play, you can access the course without showing a military ID.
