Golf On The Emerald Coast
Warm gulf breezes and pristine landscapes make Okaloosa Island and its surrounding area a golfer’s paradise all year long. Whether teeing off along sugar-white sand beaches or putting among live oaks, you’ll have a great time golfing any of the championship golf courses and country clubs the Emerald Coast has to offer.
Golfing the Emerald Coast in impeccable weather, coupled with lush natural surroundings and championships tees, is “as good as it gets” for golfers of all skill levels. The golf courses in the Fort Walton Beach and Destin area are among the most challenging in the country. Set in the beautiful woods and wetlands, these links provide spectacular scenery and that extra impetus to play better.
Memorable family fun can be had at two golf experiences on Okaloosa Island: Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone at 1306 Miracle Strip Pkwy. SE, and Okaloosa National mini Golf and Ice Cream at 225 Santa Rosa Blvd. Golfing in Fort Walton Beach and Destin: Shalimar Pointe, Indian Bayou Golf Club, Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club, and Emerald Bay.
The championship courses in Destin are within easy reach of Fort Walton Beach, and many are just 20 minutes away by car. This means you can enjoy your favorite vacation rental on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach and still be close enough to spend the day on the links.
