  • Really a nice course for the$49 we paid. Nothing in the area should be more than that anyway during the fall. Enjoyed the course & decent pace of play.  more »
  • Enjoyed our round. Course and greens were in good shape. Some challenging holes, particularly #7. Had a nice clubhouse and pro shop. Pretty reasonable prices.  more »
  • The course was in good condition and well-maintained. Tim, the starter was very friendly, as was the clubhouse staff. We played 4 different courses in Pompano Beach recently and, this was by far, the ...  more »

  • Fairways where in great shape, greens a little hairy but in good shape
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Just beautiful fairway and plenty of golf balls to practice
  • 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.

Where to stay in Destin

Most of Destin’s vacation accommodations are hotels, motels, and high-rise condominiums. For a luxury vacation stay, you can find a number of large houses located along the coast. Not only do these properties boast superb sea views, but many are within easy walking distance of the beach and some of the city’s best restaurants and bars. Pitch a tent at a local campsite to save a few dollars and take advantage of the Emerald Coast’s mild weather.
