30A Golf Courses
Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club
Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club is eighteen holes of “The Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle” according to Golf Magazine, and was voted as ‘Reader’s Choice’ in Florida Golf Magazine. This par 72 course meanders through some of Northwest Florida’s most beautiful native habitat and takes golfers from the clubhouse to the Gulf and back with five sets of tees for those of every skill or handicap. It is the only course in the area with two holes that back up to the Gulf of Mexico.
Designed by Tom Fazio and located between Hwy 30A and Hwy 98, Camp Creek boasts many accolades including, “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses” by Golf Digest and “Best Family Friendly Golf Resort” by Golf for Women Magazine, and has been home to several first-round US Open Qualifiers. Unlike the traditional flat terrain of Northwest Florida, it offers a fun challenge with few flat lies and tiered greens that roll quick, but true!
Origins Golf Club
Origins Golf Club at Watersound, sits just North of Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach, and is “golf made simple and fun, again, yet challenging enough to retain the interest of avid players,” according to Davis Love III, the course designer. At its core, it was built with the “short course” concept and a mission to make golf more fun, accessible, and attractive to families, beginners, and casual golfers. The regulation-length holes and greens still provide enough challenge to retain the interest of avid golfers.
