Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club's most striking feature is the beautiful location. Situated along South Walton's pristine white sand beaches, the course has two holes that back up to the sparkling blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Carefully routed through natural wildlife habitats and native vegetation, the course is a member of Audubon International and the meticulous care taken when crafting the course has earned Golf Magazine's praise as the "purest golf in the Florida panhandle." The layout appeals to players of all skill levels with several risk-reward holes and seven different sets of tees. Accuracy will be generously rewarded but you won't be punished if you decide to play it safe. Water hazards come into play frequently and there are strategically placed bunkers that will test your shot making.

We were greeted with a cart upon arrival, and nicely pointed in the correct direction. We were then sent to the range to hit unlimited balls! Hit off mats, but it didn’t make a difference. The starter was nice. The layout was great and interesting, especially with several great par 3s with water. While the fairways were a bit sparse, the true and reliable greens made up for it. After the round, the staff were so great and thankful for our playing. They met our needs perfectly, and the GolfNow price is good for the experience.

Course in good shape. Variety to the layout with some elevation changes. Risk/reward options on some Par 5s. Some blind shots so it was good I was playing with a local. I booked it on golf now at half the advertised rate of 119 which would be too high for the course. Not advertised lot of houses on the course which was nice. Just under 4 hours.

I was blown away by Santa Rosa Golf Club. The course is different than the other Destin area golf courses. It reminds me of golf at Lake Oconee in Georgia. The layout is exceptional. The staff if very friendly. Can't wait to play it again!

Down in FL for spring break. Saw some good reviews about this course so I thought I’d check it out. Booked online $119!!!?!? Replay rate of $30 but when I checked in at 7am for my 7:50 tee time. Told me they were all booked the rest of the day. Short course but still took us 4.5 hours to play. Hole #15 could be the dumbest hole I’ve ever played. Local knowledge definitely beneficial to playing this course. Lot of water on holes that you can’t see. Greens were in good shape but again for the price I paid maybe I was expecting more. It’s a $60 course but able to charge more during peak visitor season. If I’m in this area again I’ll check other courses.

Played here many times. Greens are true most of the time and always lightening fast.

Underbrush has been cleared which greatly helped the pace of play.

Driving range is off mats. They furnish short tees but still an effort teeing up for your driver

I had not played eighteen holes of golf for about six months and was anxious to get out and play. I played eighteen holes on this course and MADE MY VERY FIRST HOLE IN ONE ON HOLE #8! I have been playing golf for over fifty years and have never made a hole in one! Needless to say, it was a good round for me!
