Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club was established in 1969 in a concrete block building bearing little resemblance to the sophisticated beach club that exists today. In place of that beachfront structure today is Vue on 30a, the Club’s award-winning restaurant.
The golf club started as a 9-hole course, built by the members and later transformed into 18 holes designed by Roy Albert Anderson. The course beautifully carves through the natural surroundings of the local area. The club and course was completely renovated in 2021 by Bill Bergin and his team. The new design is challenging for the most skilled golfers, yet fun and friendly for the recreational player. It also brings the natural dune feel, which is prominently noted along the gulf coast.
The gulf view from the appropriately named and newly renovated restaurant and beach club, Vue on 30a, commands attention from every corner of the restaurant. The terrace is perfect for outdoor dining or drinks with friends. The view of the sunset has been voted the “Best in Destin.” Private beach and pool access overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico are popular amenities that club members enjoy. Vue on 30a is open to the public whereas the Santa Rosa golf course and Beach Club remain private for members.
Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club has always been owned by the Equity Members, a unique membership experience. Equity Members, through the Board, direct the operations of the club, including plans for the future of the business.
