Kelly Plantation, Destin, FL

An Impressive, 18-hole Championship Golf Course
Designed by Golf Course Architect and PGA Tour Player, Fred Couples

At just over 7,000 yards off the back tees, the Kelly Plantation is as tough as it is aesthetically beautiful. Couples went for large, contoured greens rather than the usual pocket-sized putting surfaces so often favored by the other big names in golf course design. The fairways are meticulously manicured and peppered with an array of hazards – lakes and creeks and literally hundreds of bunkers of every shape and size - that can, should you stray from the short grass, turn an otherwise respectable score into a nightmarish journey of one double bogey after another. Considering the traffic the playing surfaces must withstand over the course of a year, the grounds staff is to be complimented on the way they keep this lovely course in shape.

Bay Point Resort Golf Club, Panama City Beach, FL

The Nicklaus

The Nicklaus Course at Bay Point premiered in fall 2005, as Northwest Florida ’s only Nicklaus-designed course.
