Florida - Emerald Coast Best Golf Courses



Best golf courses on the Emerald Coast in Florida

The Emerald Coast with its calm sandy beaches and turquoise waters is Orlando's and Tampa's quiet cousin. Besides its underwater adventures, interesting local haunts, bottlenose dolphins and beautiful natural ecosystem, the coastline also serves up memorable golfing experiences.

Located in a pine forest, Heritage Plantation Golf & Country Club's rolling terrain, excellent bunkering and meticulously planned holes promise a great time. If you're all about the scenery, Raven Golf Club at Sandestin is as beautiful as it is challenging. What Kelly Plantation Golf Course lacks in elevation changes it makes up in fantastic bunkering, multiple water hazards and a beautiful par-4 4th.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
