Regatta Bay Golf & Country Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1998

Regatta Bay Golf & Country Club: In keeping with its next door neighbour, Kelly Plantation, the also immaculately presented course here at Regatta Bay is another of the Emerald Coast's gems - the layout expansively roams through a forest of tall pine trees, occasionally passing some discreetly tucked away, upscale housing, and seriously flirting with several small lakes and ponds along the way - wetland areas cut across some fairways, while plenty of distinctively mounded, elliptical bunkering stylishly features around the greens - a few tightish drives will need to be made between the mature pines and their attractive, though quite dense undergrowth - always exuding a natural feel, the holes occupy what was originally flattish terrain, which has been landscaped and mounded to create nicely raised tees and greens, and rolling fairways - although the course doesn't bring you into direct contact or sight of Choctawhatchee Bay, this quiet, natural layout does present a wonderful array of great looking golf holes - one such stunning and challenging stretch comprises the long par-4 7th, tee-to-green water-flanked par-3 8th and twice wetland-crossed par-4 9th - this attractive sequence of holes is matched by many others, not least the majestic par-5 18th, which gently snakes back to the clubhouse flanked by pine forest on one side and a large, attractive pond on the other.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
