South Walton Beach Golf Courses

Golf is a pastime to many and an obsession to some. Fortunately, for those who never leave home without a set of clubs in his or her trunk, the Beaches of South Walton will feed that inner Tiger with some of the best golfing in Florida.

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is a behemoth of a golf destination. With four championship golf courses, a state-of-the-art training center and practice facility, this golf mecca challenges players of every level. Test your accuracy on The Links Course or hone your skills at the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed Raven Golf Club. The play at these courses won’t disappoint.

Not to be outdone are two of the area’s private courses – Camp Creek Golf Club and Shark’s Tooth.  The Tom Fazio-designed Camp Creek Golf Club is open to members and guests of nearby WaterColor Resort and WaterSound Vacation Rentals. The course makes its way through the backdrop of towering pines and lush vegetation making for a thrilling round of golf. Shark’s Tooth has the distinction of being the only private Greg Norman signature course along the Emerald Coast. Consistently ranked among the best courses in Florida, the course is at the heart of the Wild Heron community.

Other must-play courses include Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club and The Origins Course. Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club situated in beautiful Santa Rosa Beach boasts the area’s only Gulf front holes, while The Origins Course was built with speed in mind. The six-hole course also plays as a nine-hole executive course and a 10-hole par three helping golfers “speed up” the time of their game for more fun on and off the course.
