For the golfer, Santa Rosa’s golf course spans across more than a seven mile stretch and is the only course in the area that has two holes that back up directly to the Gulf of Mexico.
The 18-hole, par 72 course offers a challenge from five sets of tees for those of every skill level or handicap. Holes three through five, wind around a complex of dunes and within a few hundred yards of the Gulf of Mexico. Referred to as the “Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle,” by Golf Magazine, the course offers a fair challenge and unique character only found among the Highway 30a corridor and the Santa Rosa Beach area. Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club boasts some of the only elevation changes in the area and takes golfers from the clubhouse to the Gulf and back through the natural areas that enhance the uniqueness of the course. In addition, the course meanders through natural wildlife habitats and native areas providing a picturesque backdrop of the local area and is designed perfectly for walking with little distance between greens and tees, with Holes 9 and 18 ending up at the clubhouse.
The short game facility which opened in September 2019 includes a 6,200 square foot green complex, two bunkers – both representing two different types of bunker shots and the room to hit both chip and shots. This space is the perfect place for members to work on those important shots around the green.
