Lost Key Golf Club is conveniently situated equidistant from the historic downtown area of Pensacola and the pristine white sand beaches of Orange Beach and the Gulf Shores. The Arnold Palmer-designed layout was Florida's first golf course to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. It underwent a major renovation in 2006 that included the addition of 2,200 native trees, 13,000 wetland plantings, and the resurfacing of the tees, greens, fairways, and rough. The golf course now presents a formidable test for even the most seasoned golfers. The greens are large and undulating and the flat fairways are lined with trees. There are also doglegs fairways on six holes and sand bunkers on several others. Lost Key Golf Club's signature hole is the par-3 13th hole, which requires a tee shot over water to a partial island green that rolls across dramatic elevation changes.

No help at all.

Tried over and over again to book teetime on their website, it would not work. I called to see if anyone could help and spoke to Tristan. He could not/would not help. I asked if he would honor the price listed on their website if we just came in- he said no. After trying several times, we simply drive to the course to see if we had booked or paid for a tee time since we were staying close by. In the pro shop we met Tristan. He watched us try to unsuccessfully book a tee time online several times and then told us they had received an email about the website having a glitch but he still would not let us play at that price as he “did not have the authority“. He told us to book it through golfnow and watched as I booked it online in front of him. The price was $34 Per player cheaper than what he was allowed to charge us. Finally we were paid and ready to play. He sent us out without directions to the 1st tee or directions about whether we could drive the fairways ( it had been raining).
We fended for ourselves and had no one but Tristan to speak to about our experience as “none of the pros work weekends”.

The course needed a good mowing but it had been raining the last week or so. Greens are really nice. Rough was uncut in spots and deep. Nice layout but really tight in some areas. Some holes are difficult due to no local knowledge and no gps or guide books to help. They may have sold those but Tristan went back to his phone and did not offer one for sale.

Excellent Greens

Not that I play a lot of PGA courses but I have yet to find better greens to putt on. Absolutely love these greens. Right fairways and only use the driver when needed. Bring a good supply of balls as all fairways are red stakes and once you’re in, drop a new one and keep playing. Worth the $$$.

Awesome challenge

This course was alot of fun. I play from the tournament tees and this course was a challenge, but that's what made it fun. It is a pretty tight course so I can see where some people wouldn't like it but I get to play courses of this caliber once a year so a challenge is what I look for.

Great Layout but

Loved the layout and the greens are absolutely superb, however the rest of the course is very average. Splotchy fairways, furry tee boxes, and bunkers needed edging. Paid 65 bucks for an afternoon tee time and was disappointed. One of 9 courses I’ve played in the Gulf Shores/Pensacola area and it’s been the worst value. Priced well out of its quality. If you want to spend 100 plus for a morning tee time play a RTJ course or Kiva.

OK golf course

I played here lots of time, but today some of the greens in the tee boxes and fairways have some brown spots. Maybe too much fertilizers in some spots and just right amount of fertilizers on the green parts .
If the golf course is going to be open for business, the bathroom should be presentable. The bathroom on the back 9 ladies bathroom needs to be clean, and also the sink was leaking. It needs to be fix...
The ladies bathroom in the Clubhouse needs to be clean as well and more paper towel to dry your hands should always be abundant. There was a paper towel dispenser that is not even working.
Those above toilet issues are very important during this Covid 19 crises.

Disappointing

Fairways are too narrow. Even the most accurate driver of the ball will have difficulty. Too great a distance difference between the white tees and golf tees, 5900ish vs 5200ish. Bunkers are very uneven, some areas way too much sand, way too deep and other areas very thin Fairway bunkers are a joke with very deep sand. Greens are fine and fairways are fine. Most off fairway areas need trimming or sprucing up for this to ber a class operation. Driving to this course is very difficult. No GPS will get you there 'cause I guess they changed the entry when they built more homes. Good luck finding it without having to call for directions.

Fun Trek

The course was in average to good shape. Greens had been punched/sanded recently so putting was a little abnormal. Worth the price and experience. I would suggest that the military discount be able to be applied when booking online. I booked for 2 players online and a third joined us after the fact. We are all retired military. The rate was $10 cheaper than online. Not a big deal but should be an option.

Quality Golf in the Florida Panhandle

When it comes to golf courses in the Pensacola area, Lost Key Golf Club is certainly one of the top facilities in the area. The golf course is framed by the natural beauty of Perdido Key and is ideally located between historic downtown Pensacola and the pristine sugar sand beaches of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, AL.

The course originally opened in 1997 and went through a redesign by the Arnold Palmer Design Group in 2006. Par at Lost Key is 71 and the course can play anywhere from 6,690 yards from the Black tees to 4,137 yards from the Orange tees. In all, there are five sets of tees that offer players of all skill levels a unique playing experience.

This signature-designed championship course features Sea Dwarf Paspalum grass from the tee through the green making for some of the best playing surfaces in the area. The greens are lush and roll true. Lost Key was the first golf course in the State of Florida to be certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary, a project that continues to protect the natural resources of the area while providing an outstanding golf experience.

Lost Key has several holes that you will remember for a while, but here are some of my favorites. Number 1 is a par 5 that plays 549 yards (Blue Tees). It’s the longest hole on the course and surprisingly is only handicapped #15. Number 1 is best played as a 3 shot hole and holds the key to getting your round off to a good start. This is achieved by keeping your tee shot in play; after all, there’s nothing worse than hitting three off the first tee! Play your layup shot towards the bunker on the left side of the fairway. That will leave an approach shot of around 100 yards to the middle of the green. Par is a great way to start.

Number 4 is a risk/reward par 4 that doglegs to the left. At only 292 yards, it’s reachable for longball hitters and seniors who can hit the ball 220 yards. There’s water on both sides of the fairway and behind the green so be sure to keep the ball in play. If you can’t carry your tee shot at least 240 yards, better play it safe and just put your tee shot out in the fairway. That involves laying up short of the right fairway bunker which will leave an approach shot of around 110 yards. Play your approach shot to the middle of the green and leave yourself a shot at a one-putt birdie. Standing on the Blue tees, it looks like there is nowhere to land the ball but once you play this hole a couple of times, you’ll figure it out.

Number 12 is a fun 501-yard par 5 that starts with a wide-open tee shot to a generous landing area. But don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security. Longball hitters may be able to go for the green with their second shot but must avoid the water on the left. For those of us who didn’t pummel their tee shot, play your second shot over the wetlands with a mid-iron and leave a short approach to a very large and well-undulated green that slopes back to front. Knowing where the pin is and hitting it close goes a long way in avoiding a three-putt.

The par 4, 430 yard 17th hole has a little bit of everything and for my money could very well be the toughest hole on the course. At 430 yards from the Blue tees, it’s the longest par 4 on the course. The tee shot requires the longest carry of any hole and is best played with a shot slightly right and short of the 150-marker. Find the bunker on the left just over the water and par just became that much tougher. A good tee shot will still leave a long to mid-iron approach shot into a small green with a ridge running across the middle. Keep it in the fairway on this hole and you’ll just fine.

After your round, head into the clubhouse for your favorite adult beverage and some very tasty food. The dining room serves both breakfast and lunch as well as dinner on Wednesday nights. The menu includes sandwiches and burgers and I highly recommend the club sandwich. Wednesday night dinner includes entrees such as Lemon Chicken and Truffle Shrimp. There’s a Happy Hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 – 7 PM, so if you plan your round accordingly, you can take advantage of $10 appetizer platters, $2 domestic drafts, $3 house wine and $4 well drinks.

Recently Lost Key unveiled their new state of the art golf clubhouse which features a full-service golf shop, men’s and ladies' locker room facilities with lounge areas, and a restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating that offer panoramic views of the golf course. While Lost Key Golf Club offers all of the amenities and quality service found at the finest private clubs in the country, it is open to non-Members and resort guests. The club is a popular venue for golf outings of all sizes and the clubhouse is available for private social events. Lost Key is more than just a golf course, it’s an entire lifestyle.

Lost Key is currently accepting new members and is offering some incredible deals with membership starting as low as $100 per month! It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned veteran or are just taking up the game, Lost Key offers Single, Family or Transferable memberships for individuals who have a vacation home and choose to rent their home when not in town. They also offer Corporate Memberships for local businesses that may be looking to grow their image and join like-minded professionals who recognize the benefits of being a Club Member. As a member, you’ll receive
complimentary greens fees, locker and bag storage, handicapping service, seven-day preferred tee times, use of private lockers/showers/bathrooms, a Lost Key golf hat, towel, a member bag tag and much more.

The Hilton Garden in nearby Orange Beach, AL offers some reasonable and comfortable accommodations. It’s a relaxing 20-minute drive to the golf course right along the beach and HGI offers a great breakfast buffet and lots of beach amenities.

Last Word: Terra Firma Asset Management purchased Lost Key Golf Club in 2018 and the enhancements to the golf course and facility in general have been tremendous. Lost Key is destined to become one of the most desirable golf communities in the Florida panhandle and will attract golfers and residents from neighboring states. Ownership has sunk a good deal of money into the golf course and rejuvenated it to the point that it is once again a joy to play.

The bunkering at Lost Key is quite impressive and penal. There’s a lot of sand in the bunkers and if your approach shots do not find the green but instead land in a bunker, up-and-down can be a task. I had the opportunity to speak with Doug Lowell, a foreman on the grounds crew, and ask him some of the things that make Lost key such a spectacular facility. Doug said that the natural beauty and terrain of the course has withstood all of the elements Mother Nature could throw her way including torrential rains, hurricanes and oil spills. The course has withstood it all and the lush vegetation continues to survive.

Last Word: Terra Firma Asset Management purchased Lost Key Golf Club in 2018 and the enhancements to the golf course and facility in general have been tremendous. Lost Key is destined to become one of the most desirable golf communities in the Florida panhandle and will attract golfers and residents from neighboring states. Ownership has sunk a good deal of money into the golf course and rejuvenated it to the point that it is once again a joy to play.

The bunkering at Lost Key is quite impressive and penal. There’s a lot of sand in the bunkers and if your approach shots do not find the green but instead land in a bunker, up-and-down can be a task. I had the opportunity to speak with Doug Lowell, a foreman on the grounds crew, and ask him some of the things that make Lost key such a spectacular facility. Doug said that the natural beauty and terrain of the course has withstood all of the elements Mother Nature could throw her way including torrential rains, hurricanes and oil spills. The course has withstood it all and the lush vegetation continues to survive.

The greens are as smooth as you could ask. A little slower than I expected but I don't recall my rolls bouncing once. Fairways are also in great condition; tee boxes need some new growth. The bunkers had been raked by the grounds crew and had plenty of sand in them. Very few people on the course and I breezed through in less than 2:30. I'm ready to go back again!
