Will not be returning. Following an afernoon round of golf and a visit to the bar my credit card was charged twice for a round of drinks. I returned to the bar at a later date for my refund that, over the phone, was promised...More

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

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.

Played the course today and had fun! Used the GolfNow app and paid $20 to play. The course was still a little wet from the tropical storm, but I was impressed with the quality of the course. Some holes are narrow fairways that will punish...More

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.
