Northwest Florida Golf Guide

Introduction by L. Jordan Swanson

VIE is pleased to announce our third annual Northwest Florida Golf Guide, brought to you by some of the most stunning championship courses in the region! The Golf Guide’s goal is to inform golf enthusiasts about the area, which ranks—nationally and globally—as a premier golf destination.

In Northwest Florida, esteemed golf courses are positioned along more than two hundred miles of beautiful coastline from Pensacola to Apalachicola; each course offers a one-of-a-kind golf experience incomparable to other regions in the nation. The courses are as diverse as their locations and are situated in a climate ideal for year-round play. Enjoy your love for the sport twice in one day by playing one course in the morning and another during an afternoon outing. Explore the signature features and challenging layouts of some of golf’s most renowned course designers—Greg Norman, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and more.

These courses are paired with the charm of some of America’s favorite coastal vacation destinations, complemented by numerous award-winning restaurants and accommodations, world-class resorts, and unique shopping sites, and set alongside some of the most picturesque beaches in the world. For those arriving via airplane, airports conveniently located in Panama City Beach, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, and Pensacola are just minutes from courses. With Southwest Airlines serving the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport in Panama City, the Northwest Florida Golf Guide’s courses are accessible to travelers from all over the globe.

Within this Golf Guide are multiple course listings that extend invites to both residents and visitors alike. Playing a game of golf near the beaches of Northwest Florida is unlike playing anywhere else in the world. Once you’ve played golf here, you’ll be coming back year after year for more!
