Course Review: Blackstone Golf Course

Updated: Aug 10, 2022

I had heard many great things about Blackstone Golf Course from Tee To Green Magazine as well as from some friends. Since I was heading to the area for the annual family beach vacation I decided it was a perfect time to check out Blackstone Golf Course.



Upon arriving I wasn't sure what to expect. The turn-off highway 90 to the golf course looks like you may end up going down a dirt road. However, once you turn toward the property you are welcomed by an Old Florida-style clubhouse and feel.


The staff was super friendly, very helpful with information, and in pointing me in the right direction for the driving range, putting green, and the first tee. The staff in the grill was just as friendly and helpful. Good southern hospitality.



From the time you walk out the back of the clubhouse to the practice facilities, you get a peek at what you will see out on the golf course. Lots of hills. Something I was not expecting being this far south and only 30-40min north of the coastal beaches. This was a theme for the day and something I would expect in Tennessee, not in the Florida Panhandle. It was a nice change from the flat courses of Southeast Louisiana.


The course was in very good condition. I was told Blackstone Golf Course was about 4 weeks past some late summer maintenance. The fairways and tee boxes were well maintained and the greens were rolling well. I would expect that in a few weeks the course will be even better. There were some areas that could use some work but the golf course is very playable as many of those areas do not really come into play. The conditions of the golf course are worthy of a $60 golf course but their green fee was less than $40 the day I was there.



The views and the layout of the golf course are spectacular. There was a good mix of holes in length and challenge as well as a good mix of how the holes naturally moved across the overall terrain. The overall design was very pleasing and even though the golf course yardage is shorter than 7,000 yards the course plays with the challenge of a 7,000-yard golf course.


Check out the video below. I highly recommend this golf course for anyone coming to the area or those who want something different than the $100 plus golf you find closer to the beaches of Destin and Panama City, FL.
