  • Another great course in Destin and challenging for all levels of play. In good shape, no recent aeration and greens rolled true. Apples at the turn for a healthy snack. Go play. 
  • I can't say enough about this beautiful and challenging course...having played at most of the courses in the area, this is my absolute favorite. Played 5 days last week and 4 were at Regatta Bay. Grea...  read more »
  • Loved the course, great staff!! Excellent price, we walked in without a tee time and expected to pay $150 but they said if you don't mind waiting an hour the rate drops to $75. Either price the course...  read more »
  • I have family in Destin, FL and kept hearing how beautiful the city and beaches were along with some great golf. We booked a few rounds at Regatta Bay Golf and Yacht Club about a month out ( 8 of us). What a beautiful and challenging course this turned out to be. Every hole was different and a golfer will need pretty much every club in his bag, which is a treat. They let you go out with a bang with a remarkable "Tin Cup" style 18th hole. Staff was great, food was great, will definitely be back here on next year's trip!
  • Great course, fantastic staff. Terrible food, at a course as expensive as Regatta Bay I would expect better quality of food. Our group order hotdogs at the turn (not the most high faluting food, I know) we received the most bland barely edible wieners I've ever had, and to top it off the buns were stale. The service is always impeccable, from the Gate to the Pro shop and beyond, but why do they serve bad food?! I've had other meals here and wasn't impressed. I'll go back, but with a packed lunch. Don't get the hotdogs they are yucky.
  • This is a very nice, interesting golf course to play. Some tough driving holes, some shorter holes where you have to high hybrid or long iron to set up a good approach. And the staff were very friendly. The big issue was the greens were in horrible condition. Had I known that we would have went elsewhere and certainly wouldn't have paid the high rate that we did. I guess they aerated 3-4 weeks ago and for some reason the greens haven't recovered yet. Would love to see the course when it is in excellent conditions but not sure I'll be back.
  • The course was great, but the experience was terrible. This is a members' course, meaning they let back-to-back member 5-somes play, even at prime hours during the week (which held up the entire course). I've never really seen a course do this. If you're going to allow it, then just close it down to the public or give a disclaimer when booking the tee time (and reduce the fee). We will not be playing here again.
  • First let me start by saying that I was very hesitant in booking a golf trip to Destin, FL. We always do an annual golf trip to Myrtle Beach and was reluctant to change, thinking this would not stand up to Myrtle (boy was I wrong)!!!! We played several rounds through the days of our trip, with a couple of them being here at the Regatta. Not only was this an outstanding layout which was in outstanding condition, but the staff were extremely accommodating!! The head pro Mike Giammaresi was extremely gracious in getting us started as well as making himself available to our group. Then came time to eat, and the facilities as well as food were everything to be expected. Everyone on our trip could not say enough about this years experience, and needless to say we will more than likely be booking this again next year!!!
