Where2Golf says: 

Bluewater Bay Golf Resort (Bay/Marsh courses): With 36 championship golf holes available, you may find your round at Bluewater Bay comprising any two of the resort's four nine-hole loops - although the Bay/Magnolia and Lake/Marsh combinations seem to be most frequently used, we have chosen to highlight the Bay/Marsh pairing, which maximises the spectacular views out onto Choctawhatchee Bay - we separately feature the Lake/Magnolia pairing, which is located away from the Bay and takes you into a predominantly natural lakeland/wetland environment - the Bay/Marsh combination gives you bayside holes on each nine - the par-3 4th (Marsh) and par-4 6th (Bay) are the pick of these holes, their putting greens sit alongside the shoreline of the immensely scenic Bay - much of the time the layout quietly weaves its way through the resort community, with small lakes and ponds often in play, especially on the Marsh-nine - an attractive array of oak and pine trees flanks most holes, ensuring the housing is set well enough back to be out of harm's way - laid out on flattish terrain, the pleasant mix of straightaway and doglegging holes provide a good golfing challenge, without being overly mounded or bunkered along the fairways - this classic, older style community course certainly has its moments, not least on those four or five occasions when you get to look out across the Bay.

Did you know?

Bluewater Bay Resort is located on the north shore of the expansive Choctawhatchee Bay, which appeared on early Spanish, French, and English charts as St Rose's Bay or Santa Rosa Bay. The 140-mile Choctawhatchee River flows down from southern Alabama and empties into the Bay, along with several other smaller rivers and streams. The name Choctawhatchee simply means "River of the Choctaws".
