Baytowne Golf Club, a premier choice among the extensive offerings of golf courses in Northwest Florida, now brings a fresh face to its familiar layout. Expansively renovated in the summer of 2005 by original course architect Tom Jackson, this Florida golf course, twice hailed by Golf Digest's Places to Play with 4 ½ Stars, is even more exciting.
With a routing that takes guests from the beach to the bay, and boasts some of the only elevation change in the area, Baytowne Golf Club is as forgiving from the forward tees as it is challenging from the championship ones.
The addition of a fifth set of junior tees makes this golf course in Florida a great place for beginners to learn the game, or pick up the pace for an afternoon executive round.

Raven Golf Club, home in 2006 and 2007 to the Boeing Championship – a stop on the PGA Champions Tour – is masterfully carved through the marshes and pine trees of Sandestin. Robert Trent Jones Jr. crafted this unique and visually stunning 6,900-yard par 71 into what he calls "a true modern traditional."
Voted "Best New Course in Florida in 2000" by Florida Golf News, the Raven Golf Club is a natural wonder that presents drama and strategy on every tee. Guests are presented with a myriad of exciting shot options while experiencing dramatic changes in color and texture throughout the course.

Along with outstanding course conditions and layout, Kelly Plantation offers exclusive amenities and outstanding service. From the welcome greeting at the bag drop, to the chilled apples on the first tee, to the iced and scented towels delivered to you on the course during warm weather days, a day at Kelly Plantation is truly memorable.
Kelly Plantation Golf Club features one of the most visually impressive and environmentally sensitive golf courses in northwest Florida. Nestled along Choctawhatchee Bay in Destin, Florida, this 18-hole golf course was the former site of a turpentine plantation owned by Mattie and Coleman Kelly. Designers, Fred Couples and Gene Bates, created an impressive championship golf course from the intrinsic beauty of this land with miles of waterfront, intricate bayous and towering trees.
The golf course conditions at Destin's Kelly Plantation are exceptional with meticulously manicured fairways, pristine Bermuda greens, and neatly raked bunkers. And, this Destin golf course offers four sets of tees. The forward tees offer a fun and enjoyable experience for novice golfers, while the championships tees, boasting over 7,000 yards, provides more of a challenge to the experienced golfer.
For the golfer, the 18 hole, par 72 course offers a challenge from five sets of tees for those of every skill level or handicap. Holes three through five, wind around a complex of dunes and within a few hundred yards of the Gulf of Mexico. Referred to as the “Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle,” by Golf Magazine, the course offers a fair challenge and unique character only found among the Highway 30a corridor and the Santa Rosa Beach area. The course boasts some of the only elevation changes in the area and takes golfers from the Clubhouse to the Gulf and back through the natural areas that enhance the uniqueness of the course. A member of Audubon International, the course meanders through natural wildlife habitats and native areas providing a picturesque backdrop of the local area. The course is designed perfectly for walking with little distance between greens and tees, with Holes 9 and 18 ending up at the Clubhouse.
