Shalimar Pointe Golf & Country Club
Located along the shores of Choctawhatchee Bay, Shalimar Pointe Golf & Country Club enjoys a scenic, rolling landscape dotted with trees. This often-overlooked golf course has been considered one of the Emerald Coast's best-kept secrets but the word is beginning to get out. The course, due to its challenging but playable nature, has been used for U.S. Open qualifiers and it was host to the Emerald Coast Tour. The layout features immaculately manicured greens that are framed by strategic bunkering and water hazards on a number of holes. The golf course is challenging but fair with five sets of tees to accommodate players of all skill levels. The course is Shalimar Pointe's main attraction but it is complemented by extensive practice facilities including an expansive driving range, putting green and chipping green.

Was not told only nine holes open! Wold not have played if knew! Tees are like turtle backs and mostly dead. Greens are super slow.
I enjoyed the course/nice variety of hole layouts. Some long 3's. Tees and fairways good w enough grass on fairway/not thin. Greens are interesting but there are some bare to sparse areas. Not a lot of water hazard. Driving range so so. No long range water views. Use a satellite to find it. I'd like to play ;it again.
Well maintained and good pace
I was pleasantly surprised after seeing just 3 1/2 stars on the ap but the course was actually in very good shape. I finished as a single in 2 1/2 hours so the pace was good. The only minor negative was that there was no starter so the random person I was to be paired up with never happened.
Last minute inexpensive
Shalimar was nicely cared for with very few people there today. Cooler cloudy weather helped
Nice, good value
Nice, good course, good value. Very slow greens. Just a basic course, good challenge, views are okay, but mostly of back yards. Enjoyed the friendly staff and greens keepers.
Not up to scratch
We decided to give this course another try, the last time we played it was back in February and the grass on the greens had gone on holiday. They were in very poor condition. After hearing the advert on a local radio station boosting about how good the condition of it is we went back. Before we tee’d off there was a thunderstorm brewing so we asked if there was a rain check facility against it, we was told either way it was costing us $23 because it was pre booked. So we chanced it and decided to play. We got to the third tee and packed in because of the weather. What we saw in them two holes was no different if not worse than the last time we played it. The greens hadn’t been cut and were dyed a color that grass could never be and the second fairway had patches were grass just wasn’t there. This place is struggling in my view and it could never be cheap enough for me to play it again. It won’t be long before everyone who lives around this course has the chance to extend their garden. There are better places to play around this area.
The greens were very sandy, couldn’t putt the ball straight, very bumpy. The fairways were decent. Overall golf course needs some touch ups all around. The layout is great and staff were very nice!
Fairways and greens need work
Been playing here for years on vacation because it’s a great value and great design. Fairways need some work with sandy areas and dead spots frequent. Greens are slow.
Fun Course to Play
I've always enjoyed playing this course. There is quite a mixture of green sizes from small to large and very undulating putts. It really helps to have a laser range finder. The fairways are nice and green. The greens were a little on the slow putting, maybe they didn't mow them on the day I played. But overall, they were good.
You get what you pay for
Tee boxes were okay, some better than the others. Same with the greens. The fairways were in fair condition and not much cushion under the ball. Sand traps were not well tended. Some were hard mud. The course was not too busy so we could play at our pace without much concern
Disappointing but friendly
It is a 2 star simply because many of the greens are not well kept as well as some Tee off areas and fairways. The staff is great and everyone there are good people. The price was too high for the course conditions in my opinion.
Course is in great shape!
Playing with good friends and I had a great time by the time we got to the second side it was getting so muggy we can hardly stand it was still were able to have a good time just soaking wet from the humidity nothing to do with the chorus just the weather in the area.
