First class staff that went out of their way to ensure we had the best possible experience. Our starter gave us a full rundown of the course at the first tee, along with some helpful tips before we tee'd off. The course itself was gorgeous and well maintained. The cost is also affordable for most, especially at the twilight rates.

My son and I played this course Feb 1 despite the cold temp and 25 mph winds. The starter was super nice and explained the course, restrooms, water holes and even to watch out for bald eagles and their nest on #10.
I do not remember ever playing on such large greens and they were lightening fast but in great shape. Fairways were ok but attribute that to time of year. Staff in clubhouse were very nice and were all masked Would like to play here again.

We had poor weather the day we golfed there but this excellent course was still in excellent condition. Despite the rain, the drink card was out! The rain kept the crowds away so nobody was behind or in front of us.

The staff made us feel like members, not guests. I would golf here again in a heartbeat.

A great golf course. The guy who checked us in should not be in a pro shop. Jim the attendant an the driving range and The beverage lady should be put in charge. The attendants by the bag drop should be escorted off the course .

have played Kelly Plantation for many years on annual vacation with family and enjoyed it immensely, not this year.... the staff was snarly at best and the course was in terrible shape. They should have at least warned us that they had completely scalpeled several fairways on the front nine prior to play.A complete waste of money
if you are looking for great golf in the area, try San Destin- The Raven, Baytowne, and the private course(Burnt Pine) were in excellent condition, the green fees comparable or less than Kelly and the staff were all delightful.

Have been coming to the 30A area for 19 years and had always wanted to play Kelly Plantation. Although many of the nicer courses in this area are expensive (>$100), our 11:30 tee time was $89 which is very fair, as the course was in great shape. Greens are fast and true, fairways and traps were excellent. I rented clubs for $59 (Taylor Made). I found the staff friendly and helpful overall. Our round took just under 4 hours. I would rate this a 4.5; having played some top courses I would say the condition of the course was excellent, but would not put it in the special category or very top tier of courses. However, best I have played in this area.

We have played most every course in the area and yesterdays golf here was by far the best experience overall. The course was in excellent condition with great fairways and fast, true greens. We did not see any course areas that were not well maintained. The staff were also very friendly and courteous and unlike some other courses, made us feel welcome. We will play here every chance we get.

The fairways were in below average condition. They had us playing on temporary greens, which were horrible . . . not even worth putting on. We were disappointed. On a positive note, we ate in the clubhouse and the food and service was outstanding!

The starter offered to get us out early with another couple but my wife is a beginner and very reluctant to play with others. So, he was very accommodating and got us out as twosome at our assigned time. We only played the front nine of the course but enjoyed what we played with the exception of a few quirks. To access the forward tees on the 5th hole one has to walk around or through a pine straw bush bed; really? Then the 7th hole has an alternate tee with 4 pine trees that are right in the line of flight. The starter didn't mention or explain why they were there or when the should be played. Not a lot of memorable holes but all aspects of the course, greens, tees, fairways and bunkers were in good shape.

Played this course for only the second time today. It is a pretty layout, and of nice quality, in spite of Jan. weather. The staff took good care of me.
