Great golf

I have golfed in many places around the world and this course is in the top 3 that I have played. The course is well manicured and the staff were all very helpful.

Was in Destin for a wedding and brought my clubs along and so did the brides father. We decided we would get a couple of rounds in while we were there. A salesman at Edwin Watts recommended this course. The course was in immaculate condition, the fairways in great shape and the greens rolled true. the course had character and... More

I may be biased because I shot my lowest ever score here (83), but I really liked this course. The course was in very good shape with brand new greens. Keep the ball in bounds and you will really enjoy your round here. Some nice water views, but really just a fun course in great shape. Will definitely play here... More

The fairways were in below average condition. They had us playing on temporary greens, which were horrible . . . not even worth putting on. We were disappointed. On a positive note, we ate in the clubhouse and the food and service was outstanding!

After a round of golf, we settled in for dinner. The food was very good as was the service. If I am ever back in Destin FLA, I will go back to the Plantation Golf Club.

I think I played the best golf here while on vacation. The grounds were in excellent shape and the use of the GPS on the carts are the best ever - don't have to guess distance!!! The cost to play is pretty much in line with courses of this caliber - even back home. The only problem I had was... More

The starter offered to get us out early with another couple but my wife is a beginner and very reluctant to play with others. So, he was very accommodating and got us out as twosome at our assigned time. We only played the front nine of the course but enjoyed what we played with the exception of a few quirks.... More

Played this course for only the second time today. It is a pretty layout, and of nice quality, in spite of Jan. weather. The staff took good care of me.

With a variety of tee boxes this course will test any golfer. It is well laid out with no, what I call "gimmick" holes. The greens were very fast and the greens in good condition. Subtle undulations make the greens a challenge to read. It does have its share of sand traps, but your not supposed to be in them... More
