  • This was a terrific outing, and we compliment Emerald Bay for its woman friendly course. The red tees were perfect for our bogey handicaps. Well maintained and a staff that went beyond expectations in accommodating our group. We look forward to returning to the beautiful Destin area and specifically the Emerald Bay Golf Club.
  • Let me start by saying my experience here was terrible. I would not call myself an veteran golf player. I stayed at this courses associated condominium which entitle me to a free round of golf. I'll just be honest I would have rather went somewhere else and paid. Worst experience I have had golfing. The course is all right a lot of unfixed divots. The golf carts are really nice they have GPS. The staff is atrocious and extremely unfriendly. Maybe because we looked like we weren't going to tip well enough I'm not sure, and after the way they treated us they ended up being correct because they didn't deserve it. Extremely rude, very uninterested in even making smalltalk while waiting on a cart just the common courtesies. The snack cart worker openly laugh at my buddies golf swing and game, which is just rude even if it is terrible lol. Would not recommend this course to anyone unless you don't care about being treated well. I will end on a high note the carts are the high point.
  • Played in about 3.5 hours. Used Golf Now and paid about $70 and they threw in a golf hat. Course was in good condition but could have been manicured a little better. Guys in golf shop and out front were nice. Layout was fun and challenging and greens were really good. I would definitely play here again.
  • Decent course. Challenging with lots of water. Good service. Dont play it if its cart paths only. There are NO yardage markers anywhere! So without the cart's GPS - you are in the dark. Even if you can drive cart on course... forces you to drive to every ball to get yardage. Also...not a single ball washer on the course...odd.
  • I've been playing Emerald Bay since the 90s and it is currently in the best shape it's ever been. The new layout and greens are great!
