Three Courses: Why Your Next Golf Trip Should Be on 30A

We love 30A for its breathtaking beaches. Powder white sand and emerald green waters attract vacationers from all over. However, the Gulf of Mexico is not the only green we are becoming famous for. We have a variety of acclaimed golf courses making the Golf Digest “top places to play” in Florida list. Here are a few of our favorite courses near 30A.

Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club boasts 18 holes of “The Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle” according to Golf Magazine. Bordering the sugar-white sandy beaches of South Walton, this golf club spans across more than 85 acres providing members, guests, and the public with access to golf, dining and more! With 7 sets of tees, every type of golfer has a fair chance at conquering the course. Boasting an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, a beautiful Beach Club with private pool and beach access, plus dining-including the club’s signature restaurant located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, Vue on 30a, it’s not hard to see why Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club was selected “Readers’ Choice” by Florida Golf Magazine.

The Raven at Sandestin is a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed course. The unique and visually striking par 71 layout is sculpted through marshes, wetlands, and pine trees. The Raven was voted "Best New Course in Florida in 2000" by Florida Golf News, hosted the Champions Tour in 2006-2007, was hailed with 4 1/2 Stars by Golf Digest in 2006 and 2008, and named “#14 in Florida" by Golf Magazine. Need we say more? The Raven is a must-play during your stay on 30A.

Origins Golf Course is located at Watersound, a quaint little beach town on 30A. It was built with the “short course” concept as its core, making it the perfect course for families, beginners, and casual golfers. Designed by Love Golf Design and founded by PGA Tour player and PGA Champion Davis Love III in the late 90s, the classic elements of this course will create an enjoyable and challenging experience. We love this course because it is fast, fun, and boasts beautiful views.

The Emerald Coast not only boasts emerald green waters but plush green golf courses throughout the area. A cozy stay in 30A vacation rentals will put you close to the beach as well as award winning golf courses in the area.
