This course is well maintained.
Enjoyed my round. Greens a little faster than what I am use to but in great condition. I always enjoy playing all three nines.
Beautiful mature course
Love the lay out. Nestled in a beautiful area. Great view of the bay. A bit wet, which is keeping the ground crew from doing some needed cleanup. But still very good. Planning on playing this one again.
nice day golfing
the course was very wet due to all the rain we have had recently. greens and tee offs need work. fairways are good for this time of year. overall I enjoyed the first round of 2019
Great course for the value
Very nice layout, outstanding staff very friendly. Gave course condition a 3 because they had received one and half inches of rain the night before so was very wet . Will play again.
Course is in poor condition
We played this course last year but didn’t remember it being in such bad shape. The greens are brown and the fairways are either not much grass or very wet. It’s unfortunate because the layout is interesting and could be nice with some TLC. The red Ts were mostly on the fairways so I played the whites.
Friendly staff, Terrible condition
The great location and friendly staff can’t overcome the atrocious condition of this golf course. There isn’t enough grass on all three 9’s to cover just one of the 9’s. In short: it was pitiful. The teeing grounds were sand boxes and the greens were slower than your worst muni. Don’t waste your money.
Could have water & cut the grass on the tee box & putting green!
Decent fairways, but dry, sandy, poorly kept tee boxes & putting greens. Lots of bugs. Good food & drinks at clubhouse. Great staff, marshals, reception & hospitality!
The layout is interesting. Greens are very slow. Staff very helpful. Some quirky holes, but fun to play.
Not worth it
Of all th courses I've played in the area, this had to be the worst. While most of the greens were decent, the same cannot be said re: the fairways, tee boxes and bunkers. This is definitely a course for beginner. The layout is interesting as some of the holes have interesting dog legs, but, for the most part, it's just not worth the cost.
The course is fairly nice but the distance between bay and the marsh nines is a long way and not well marked. It is difficult to find your way around.
Avoid this course
I have rarely seen a course in such poor condition. From the tee boxes to the greens this course has deteriorated past "acceptable". You can tell at one time this course was probably very nice, the layout is great but they have let the course go so bad it is really bad. I would recommend you avoid this course at all costs. Even for free I would consider other options before committing to playing her.
Good value and layout
First time guest on vacation. As an older club, I thought this was an excellent value and course layout for mid-high handicaps that are looking for decent conditions and forgiving fairways. The greens were a little “fluffy” and slow with all the rain, some sand traps were a little compacted, and the cart paths do show their age, but I have absolutely zero complaints for the price and overall experience! Staff was exceptionally friendly and treated me like a VIP. Highly recommended if you are looking for a fun, casual round of golf (at a friendly place) in the Destin area without paying ‘tourist prices’. If you want pristine conditions, you’re going to need to pay three times the amount of Bluewater Bay. They have done a great job in keeping this older course in good order for the casual golfer.
Greens. We're course, had some kind of long dead blades and very slow.
The course offers a good value for the money
Good value for the money out of 10 the conditions are 7
Bluewater Bay Threesome!
Bluewater Bay marsh course is a tough,b ut easy course. It will challenge your shot making as well as your putting!
Great people, went out of their way to accommodate us.
Great lay out
Don't waste your money!
Worst greens I've ever played on. Riddled with dead dirt spots and poanna grass. Like putting on a gravel parking lot. Fairway grass sparse on most holes. Obviously no money being spent to maintain the course.
