We had a great time at Regatta Bay! Our round began at 9:00 a.m., so we came early and enjoyed a very good breakfast in the restaurant. The course was difficult, but for an average player it is also very enjoyable. I hit from the front tee's and had a great time; never struggled. My other companions, who play more often than I, hit from the back tee's and found the course challenging, but not so difficult they could not enjoy the play. Indeed, the course wants you to have a good time. Service was outstanding! Loved the ice cold towels delivered around number 8. After a good rain in August, it can become suffocating. Cart service was excellent and abundant, GPS carts, starter was gracious and accommodating, free range balls, and a well cared for course. Loved Regatta Bay!

We booked a reservation that was supposed to be included in our condo rental. However, when we got to the Regatta, they failed to honor the included amenity of a free round of golf, and we had to pay full price of $150 for two.

In addition, we had reserved the time slot, but they paired us with another set of golfers (total strangers), so the time we had planned to play was doubled. This competely ruined our golf round as we had plans for later that day at lunch time. It was either cut the game short, or lose the money on the event we had planned for lunch time. Will never visit this place again and will advise our many friends who visit Destin to stay away.

We found a deal on golf now. If not it would have been $138 verses $53. This is an upscale club. The staff was extreemly friendly. They even had a barrel of apples on ice on the first tee. The course itself was in great shape. There were a few repair spots on some greens but did not interfer with play. I thought we would see views of the bay with no luck. But, the course had lots of sand and water adding to its character. The course does play long. Make sure to club up one as you are at sea level. I would most certainly play this track again. However, I would never pay the rack rate. It's just not $138 course.

Course was in great shape. Quite pricy if you play early in the day but the conditioning is stellar. Range balls are included, the pace of play was fine, great practice area, and otherwise enjoyable experience. It's also nice that the fairways are pretty wide, which makes it easier for the non-pros. Just be sure that it will cost more than your typical course. Highly recommended.
