Par For The Course: Five Reasons The Emerald Coast Has Florida’s Best Golf Courses
The Toronto Star recently named Florida as the number one state for golfers. With more than 1200 courses, the Sunshine State has a golf course for someone at any level. The article mentioned courses in Palm Beach, Orlando, and Ponte Vedra Beach, but left out the beautiful courses found on The Emerald Coast. According to many golfers who regularly play along the Emerald Coast, the Toronto Star may have â€œshankedâ€ their reviews of the best places to golf in Florida and their exclusion of Destin courses, and hereâ€™s why: â€œA Listâ€ Design: The golf courses in Destin and Fort Walton Beach have been created by top designers, such as Robert Trent Jones, Fred Couples, Tom Fazio, and RobertÂ C. Walker. The courses take advantage of the Emerald Coastâ€™s natural beauty and are impeccably groomed and manicured. Service With A Smile:Â From the minute you enter the pro shop, to the time you finish at the nineteenth hole, the staff of each course is top notch. World Class Amenities:Â Destin and Fort Walton Beach have outstanding dining, shopping, and community attractions.Â Whether youâ€™re visiting with family, friends, or both, there is plenty to do between rounds. Sand and Surf: The world famous sugar white sand beaches are only 15 minutes away from most courses. You can spend the morning on the greens and the afternoon in the emerald green waters of The Gulf of Mexico. Terrific Temperatures: The weather is slightly cooler than South Florida in the summer and warmer than most places in the winter, so golfers can play year round.Â During the fall and winter, youâ€™ll find great deals on both accommodations and greens fees. Â When you book a luxury property with Five Star Beach Properties, our expert concierge staff can help you coordinate and book t-times and lessons. Donâ€™t forget that as a Five Star Beach Property guest, you are entitled to a 25% discount off of greens fees at Regatta Bay.
