Golf on Emerald Coast

The South Walton and 30A area are renowned for its beaches. Powder white sand and emerald green waters attract vacationers from all over. However, the Gulf of Mexico is not the only green we are becoming famous for. We have a variety of acclaimed golf courses making the Golf Digest “top places to play” in Florida list. Here’s a few of our favorite courses near 30A.

Bordering the sugar-white sandy beaches of South Walton, the golf club spans across more than 85 acres providing member, guests and the public with access to golf, dining and more! With seven sets of tees, every type of golfer has a fair chance at conquering the course. Boasting an 18 hole, par 72 championship golf course, a beautiful Beach Club with private pool and beach access, plus dining-including the club’s signature restaurant located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, Vue on 30a, it’s not hard to see why Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club was selected Readers’ Choice by Florida Golf Magazine.  

The Raven at Sandestin is a Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course. The unique and visually striking par 71 layout is sculpted through marshes, wetlands and pine trees.
