Widely known for it’s emerald waters, the Emerald Coast offers an abundance of outdoor activities from fishing, boating, cycling, ecotouring and golfing. Some will argue there isn’t a better way to enjoy the outdoors than on a sophisticated green sprawled across acres of meticulously manicured landscaping – and we’re sure there’s no better place to enjoy world-class courses than next to the pristine Gulf of Mexico in the Florida Panhandle. Looking for the premiere place to stay and play? South Walton has a collection of residential golf communities with award-winning golf courses to fit every taste and skill level.
