Rating 71.8

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.

Excellent greens rolled true. Nice layout. Hilly course was fun to play. My dad is 72 and made his first hole in one on number 7 which made the day more spectacular.

Great course

Challenging layout with elevation changes that make for a fun round. The greens are exceptional, running very smooth but not overly fast. The fairways are rather shaggy; I assume to help them later against the summer heat. The fairways' lengths made for some uncommon sidehill lies where the ball would normally settle to a flatter lie. It looks like the bunkers have received some much needed attention, having been leveled and raked nicely since my previous visit last month. This course is almost always in great shape and is sure to not disappoint.

I LOVE THIS ROLLER COASTER RIDE!!!!!

Wow! Been a while since I found a course difficult but enjoyable at the same time. From the 1st hole, you're hitting over a ravine to an uphill green. Holes 2-4 are plain and straight-forward, but hold on. Here comes elevation changes and spectacular views that will blow your mind. If you hit your lay-up on 9 to the right, a treasure chest awaits.

The back nine gives you another 50' drop and then you're hitting back uphill. This is the best kept secret and well worth the 40 minute drive from Destin. Give yourself an extra 10 minutes in case you get caught by a train that runs through the middle of a major roadway. And after your round, it's another 50 minutes to Ebro Dog Park to play a little Poker and tell everybody about the great day you just had. I will definitely play this course EVERYTIME I'm in the area.

Course was in great shape for early Spring. They had a tournament there recently and the greens were fast even after a good rain.

Nice course, and good value - needs a little work

First of all, this is a very good value course (especially if you are a senior). However, despite many of the reviews here, we found the course to (currently) be in average shape at best, with the fairways and tees needing a little work. Nevertheless, the course plays well, and despite the recent top dressing, the greens were fast and true. There is a (dry) creek that runs throughout the course and crosses several holes, so if you have not played here before, you need to pay attention.

Love the layout

Love playing at Blackstone. Great track rough was a bit thin but the growing season is not in full force. Pace of play was horrible. No ranger and a foursome snuck off the back in the middle of everything. Still a good time and I of my favorite layouts.

Blackstone Golf Course

This is a great course with great greens
Fairways and roughs are are very barren with little grass to hit from.
Fairways are tight so you need to hit the ball straight.
Fun golf course to play...much different than the courses along the gulf and the bay.

Great greens!

Overall this is a nice golf course. I booked a Hot Deal online as the 4th of a foursome. When I got to the course, my group didn’t show so I was by myself. Played behind a twosome and took my time. They quit after 9 and I zipped through. 2.5 hours for 18. A couple of holes just didn’t suit my eye (180 yard uphill second shot from a downhill lie). The excellent greens made up for any other shortcomings. Subtle breaks with a few buried elephants. Rolled very true. Not lightening quick but good pace. Worth the 45 minute drive from the beach.

North of the Bay.

General this course is in excellent shape, but this weekend it was pretty beat up. Couldn't tell if it was the abundance of rain , overplaying or over seeding and the new grass coming in.
