Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club: Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is located just a few miles east of the impressive and very popular Destin/Sandestin golfer's paradise on Florida's Emerald Coast - surrounded by woodland rather than real estate, this layout retains a wonderfully natural balance - mainly tree-lined holes elegantly weave their way past silent ponds, while beyond the fairways the terrain's white sandy subsoil often shows through - on the back-nine the course strikes out for the Gulf of Mexico, courtesy of an out-and-back loop that gets you to within 100 yards of the Gulf's shoreline and those famed sugar white beaches - with recently renovated greens and as much tranquil woodland to play through as you can handle, Santa Rosa's natural and well-crafted holes are as enchanting as they are challenging - don't be misled by the layout's relatively modest length of just under 6500 yards from the tips - with several tightish fairways and several nicely doglegging holes, Santa Rosa can feel a good deal longer than its headline length.

Did you know?

The small community of Santa Rosa Beach on Choctawhatchee Bay, takes its name from Saint Rose of Lima (1586-1617), the first Catholic saint of the Americas, who was born in Lima, Peru. Her real name was Isabel, but she was such a beautiful baby that she was called Rose, and that name remained.

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.
