i reside here and have played this course many times. It's a challenge for any golfer so I highly recommend it.

The resort where we stayed in Destin offered a free round of golf at Bluewater Bay Golf Club per day during our stay. It was the worst golf experience. The driving range was closed, cart path only and the course was awful. Our foursome quit after 9 holes. Even though it was free, I feel like I was cheated.

We enjoyed this area and all the golf opportunities that were available that we bought a home here. Most of the courses are too expensive to play on a daily basis but not BWB. The course is well kept and for the most part isn't all that crowded. There are three nine hole courses so you get a variety of... More

The Bluewater Bay Golf club is an exciting course to play, It has many sand traps and water holes. I usually hit a few balls into the swamp as some holes require hitting over a swampy place and unless you layup next to the swamp, it is a long ways over. I really enjoy playing on this course.

Golf rates are high in Destin so I tried this course in Niceville across the toll bridge. It was a very good value in comparison even adding the toll. It has three nines that wind trough the neighborhoods & around the bay. Very nice layout. The lady in the golf shop was very nice & the starter was helpful since... More

After reading reviews on here, I didn't expect much but we got a free round with our house rental so decided to try it. Way better than expected and a great value. Greens were very nice but small. Some interesting holes but a not real long. I would play again.

Got reviews from several sources before playing. Was not expecting much and that is what I got. Greens terrible, fairways terrible; but staff was very nice. Fred the starter was very courteous and helpful.

I've played this course multiple times because my in-laws live on it and it is convenient (and cheap). There are some nice holes and some dogs. The Marsh is the most picturesque. The fairways are a bit narrow but that just means you have to hit them straight. Greens are small but consistent. Some long green-to-tree distances so walking, my... More

good barhaa shrimp, better than bang bang at bone fish, it sports a full bar and daily happy hour,the grouper sandwiches are my favorite. The breakfast menu is very popular and a good value. There is a good view of a small lake with a fountain from the porch.

Might have been a nice course at one time but that is no linger the case. Not a resort course. Skip this one.
