Destin, Florida Golf Courses

Sun, sand, and golf.  My husband's idea of an ideal vacation.  Our family loves Destin.  Part of the reason is that while he is enjoying the golf courses the rest of us can enjoy the sun and sand.  Among his three favorite golf courses in Destin are the Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club, Indian Bayou Golf Club, and Emerald Bay Golf Club.

Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club
Lying along the Choctawhatchee Bay in Destin the Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club is an award-winning golf course. The Regatta Bay Golf Course was designed by legendary course designer Robert C. Walker, who was once the lead architect for Arnold Palmer. This par 72 course was named "the #1 Favorite Golf Course in North Florida" by Emerald Coast magazine readers, and has also been named as one of Golf Digests "Top Places to Play in North America" and as one of the top fifteen courses in Florida. If you tee-off before 11 AM it is $89 to play the course, and if you tee-off after 11 AM the cost to play the course is $69. Course fees include eighteen holes of golf, a cart, and practice balls. Tee-times at Regatta Bay Golf Course can be reserved up to three months in advance, and can be made by calling the Regatta Bay Golf Club at (850) 337-8080 or you can book online at their website.

Indian Bayou Golf Club
Indian Bayou Golf Club, located in the heart of Destin, offers visitors twenty-seven holes spread across three different courses. The Seminole Golf Course, Choctaw Golf Course, and Creek Golf Course are each nine holes. The Indian Bayou Golf Club offers visitors the practice facilities, golf lessons, and a club house featuring a full service Pro Shop, restaurant, and lounge. The cost for eighteen holes of golf at Indian Bayou Golf Club is $79, nine holes are $39, and you can play an extra eighteen holes for $35 or an extra nine holes for $25.
