Emerald Bay: Clubhouse


Emerald Bay Golf Club sits along the shores of the Choctawhatchee Bay in the Florida Panhandle. It has a central location between Destin and South Walton. Bob Cupp designed the course in 1991 and came back and updated it in 2014. The course had a classic design that was gaining a reputation among local golfers, but Cupp made it more challenging by adding bunkers and length. The new layout will test you with a variety of holes, from ones that are long and narrow to others where you'll need a sharp short game. All of Emerald Bay's greens were renovated and the tees are new as well, and many were also elevated. Like in the original layout, expect to come across water everywhere. Many of the holes provide scenic views of the bay but you'll also have to face several tough carries.
