golf_course_1_320How can you possibly considering visiting or moving to Destin without checking out the local golf scene first? Well we're pretty sure you've already had a quick look but to highlight just how good the golfing is in and around the city of Destin, Florida we want to mention some of the best golf clubs in the city and ones that we strongly recommend you play at least one round of golf on while you're living here.

Bluewater Bay Resort

As the name suggests you're obviously getting much more than just a golf course at the Bluewater but let's just focus on the golfing facilities for now. This club offers 36 holes of golf on courses designed by Jerry Pate and Tom Fazio. With stunning views of Choctawhatchee Bay as the backdrop to your round of golf on a championship course there's very little more you could ask for.

Eglin Air Force Base Golf Course

Yes there is a golf course at Eglin Air Force Base and believe it or not it's ranked as one of the best in the country. Each year this golf course hosts 100,000 rounds of golf played on it and has all the usual amenities you'd come to expect from any golf course in Destin, including obviously a snack bar, cocktail lounge. You can even get some professional assistance with your game...if you want to get your game under par that is.

Blackstone Golf Course

The course at Blackstone, designed by Bill Ammick, is one designed to challenge you just that little bit more than other courses in the area. It's designed in such a way those golfers of all experience levels will both benefit from and enjoy playing a round or two here. Once you’ve played your round you can head back to the Blackstone Grill for simple food prepared very, very well.

Destin has a slew of other golfing locations to offer you - we just wanted to quickly list some of the better ones here.
