Course in excellent shape even after aeration a week ago. Some holes a bit challenging for those you do not hit it long off the tee. Staff are cordial but over friendly. Got a sleeve of srixon balls when I checked in.

This is a really nice course, one of the best in Destin. Very well maintained. Challenging but fair. Green fees are in line with a top tier course, but you can get pretty good discounts on GolfNow, specially their "Hot Deals".
