[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

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.
