I like to play golf, so I may be a bit more picky than most golfers who play casually. That said, I rank the courses that I just played in Destin this way: Raven, Regatta Bay, Links, Kelly Plantation, Santa Rosa Golf Club, Baytowne. Raven...More

Absolutely beautiful course. Top Quality. Inside staff seemed friendly enough once you made it past the worst possible phone demeanor one can imagine. Starter was nice and helped us on our way, and then... The 5 hour round. And NOT ONE person cared. Paid near...More

Conditions were perfect as this is the definite gem in the area. Course is challenging but with multiple sets of tees it is just a matter of knowing your handicap.

The mid afternoon round of golf in August was a little hot, but there were no one in front or behind us. We loved the views and the fairways were in excellent conditions. The course has a lot of water challenges. The sand traps were...More

If golfing in Destin area, this is a must play. Although it's sister course, Burnt Pine (private) has the upper hand, this is darn close to a private club. Very scenic and challenging. Because its Sandestin's best resort course, it can get crowded and slow...but...More
