The Moors Golf & Lodging: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN 2010, possibly on a permanent basis. Check for current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: At the western end of Florida's Emerald Coast, around the historic city of Pensacola, you'll find a wonderful variety of golf courses. Arguably the best of these is The Moors, an open, links-style layout in the great Scottish tradition.

Dune-like mounds, accentuated and topped with pampas grass, roll along beside the generally good-width fairways. Plenty of straight-faced pot bunkers will need to be avoided, both from the tee and as you make your approach to the fast-paced, nicely undulating greens. Beyond the layout's open, seemingly treeless environment, a large wetland forest stretches away to the north, ensuring the course maintains a pleasantly natural, out-of-town feel.

Water hazards put in a few telling appearances, not least at the par-4 1st and 18th holes, and also as you weave your way alongside the perimeter woodland in the mid-section of the front-nine loop. This challenging "water defended" stretch runs from the par-4 5th through to the excellent par-3 8th.

As on the best links courses, your full repertoire of shots will be tested on this predominantly open, rolling and wonderfully laid out course. With comfortable onsite accommodation The Moors makes a excellent Stay&Play venue, and a springboard from which to discover the other nearby courses and city of Pensacola ( ... continental America's first European settlement).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
