The player-friendly Blackstone Golf Course boasts a reputation of being an excellent course for families. The gently undulating landscape is approachable to beginners while still providing a fair amount of challenge. The rolling terrain requires accuracy but most holes allow for short irons if you're willing to risk hitting your ball into the treetops. There is a stream that meanders through the golf course, coming into play on a number of holes. It also crosses through Blackstone's driving range. Strategically placed bunkers are also scattered throughout. The greens are in excellent condition, providing great putting surfaces. Blackstone Golf Course has garnered a local following because of its playability, which is helped by three sets of tees, and extremely reasonable rates. It's an excellent location for a casual round.

Great Course

Play this course often. Enough elevation changes to be a challenge, but won’t frustrate the average golfer. Plenty of holes allow you to let the Big Dog eat, and some require a more subtle touch.

Cool course but tight.

Fairways were tight, not for hackers, especially with driving range closed and no warm up. Greens were in great shape and putted nicely. Fairways on good shape with patches in places but nothing real bad. Really enjoyed course and unbeatable price.

Cost of play.

On fridays sr’s play is reduced price any way and hot deals don’t save you that much after you add tax and fees. Course is rally nice but is an hour and a half one way to get there.

Awesome day awesome course

My buddy and I got a hot deal for Blackstone and drove from Navarre to play this course
The driving range was closed but the chipping putting area was open so we warmed up there for a bit The course was really slow as in very few golfers and the young man in the club house let us start an hour early. Thank you!
The course was in very good shape Tee boxes need a little work but not a real issue
This course is very challenging especially the back nine with many hills and slopes. It’s somewhat narrow but if you can stay in the fairway You can score
I really enjoyed playing here. Nice course great value

Practice Round

Have been trying for over a year to get out to this course and it finally happened. Had a great day on the course playing solo and working on getting my swing back after long term shoulder pain. The course was in good shape and the people at the course were very helpful and friendly. Love the elevation and layout of this course. Not something you see much of in this area. It is like playing golf in the woods without a house in sight. Peaceful and challenging what more could you ask for. Will definetly be back.

Blackstone golf

A very nice somewhat challenging course. a bit rough in some of the fairways but due to the early season it should be real nice by mid-late summer. will definitely play again.

Great course!!! Beautiful layout

Blackstone is a golf course located in the middle of nowhere Florida. I am always in awe when playing here wildlife everywhere, fast greens. Premium golf course like Destin’s but with amazing nature environment.

Great Track

Once again, this course never disappoints. The greens are always the best in the area. Fairways for the most part were very good although there were thin and dead spots. Keep it in the fairway and this course is kind. Spray the ball and you’re in for a long day but will get to see ALL of Blackstones beauty. Such a quiet and remote course to play....always enjoyable!!

Accidents will happen

Well, we have played this course a number of times and continue to go back. My wife fell during our round, thankfully not serious. We tried to continue to play but her body told her otherwise. The staff at the clubhouse was awesome and provided an adjustment so we could come back. Thank you!
