Length: 7,099 yards
Called the “Crown Jewel of the Emerald Coast,” Kelly Plantation Golf Club is one of the most visually impressive and environmentally sensitive golf courses in northwest Florida. Built on a former turpentine plantation, the semi-private club sits along the Choctawhatchee Bay. Golfers will marvel, but also be challenged by the miles of waterfront, 11 lakes, intricate bayous and towering trees that make up the Championship course.
Designers Fred Couples and Gene Bates envisioned and produced a masterpiece, tallying over 7,000 yards long with large contoured greens, wide manicured fairways, an array of strategically placed hazards and picturesque views of the Choctawhatchee Bay.
A fun course layout gives novice golfers an opportunity to enjoy the game from the forward tees, while the back tees offer a serious challenge for seasoned veterans of the game.
Low-handicappers will find the course provides a true test, where strategy, long drives and accuracy are vital to beating par.
