This is my favorite course in the area. Very fair layout. The Pace of play was good. Our cart girl for the day, Brooklyn was great. Really shouldn’t cost $100 to play here, but it is what it is....

My favorite golf course in Destin. Always play a couple times while here. Afternoon rates are as are most in the area, after 2pm. I'm a repeat client so I'm in their system. Great greens and nicely challenging for all levels.

We play Kelly Plantation every family trip to Destin. The course was in excellent shape. Beautiful layout with nice pace of play. Outstanding views of the Bay on several holes.

Great condition, very fast greens. No senior rates and junior rate is 12 and under, and at $145 fees during the week, very pricey in my opinion. Will opt for a little more junior/senior friendly course next visit.

I played the last week of June (2016) here with my son and his friend who are both 18. All of us are decent golfers. Overall, the experience was good but there were some cons; the green fee ($145 + tax) is way too pricey...More

Kelly was a really fast surface. Ball rolled true but hard to read. Prefer Kelly.
