The course is in better shape than the driving range or clubhouse, so don't be discouraged. This is an older course, but they are working hard to keep it in good shape. It was not well marked or mapped so on several approach shots I...More

Bluewater Bay was not the quality course we would've expected being close to Destin and with the many quality courses nearby. The greens were not well-kept; the rough was very close to the greens. The first cut was too high, greens had granular fertilizer on...More

Course was in terrible shape and doesn’t look like money has been reinvested for some time. It was difficult to find a good lie to hit from, not sure what’s wrong but not much turf left. The greens were either dyed or painted instead of...More

All I can say is players beware... you will be playing most of your shots with little to no turf, and putting on painted greens. The course is poorly maintained and overpriced. Recommend looking at other courses.

Not worth golfing again. Poor quality course and groundskeeping. Avoid. It appears this course is only interested in pocketing their proceeds. It appears the management-owners are not reinvesting back into the course.

Course is somewhat dated but challenging. Green aeration takes place in May. Still not bad price for the money.....$33.....

Nice course. Fairly narrow in places and a lot of houses line the fairways. But not terribly difficult. Some holes along the bay can be a real challenge if the bay breezes are swirling.

i reside here and have played this course many times. It's a challenge for any golfer so I highly recommend it.
