Lost Key Golf Course
The only course on the key itself, Lost Key Golf Course boasts an ideal blend of natural beauty and fine golfing conditions, and is particularly easy to access from your three-, four- or five-bedroom Perdido Key beach house rental. The course was redesigned by the Arnold Palmer Design Group in 2006, bringing in improvements such as the sea dwarf paspalum grass, which spans the tee through the green for the best playing surfaces and green speeds. This par 71 signature championship course incorporates five sets of tees at each hole, giving players of all skill levels a strategic experience.
The owners and management of this course revel in the inherent beauty of Perdido Key, and they take seriously their commitment to protect the area's natural resources. In fact, Lost Key was the first course in Florida to be awarded certification as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary.
Perdido Bay Golf Club
Although technically in Pensacola, you will only have to make a short drive across the bridge to get to this course if you are renting Perdido Key condos. Perdido Bay Golf Club was the site of the Pensacola Open for ten years, and has hosted golf legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Payne Stewart, Tom Kite and Curtis Strange.
The pro presence clues you into some of this course's integrity, but you should come see for yourself - especially if you want to work on your game. Perdido Bay Golf Club has a practice facility with a massive driving range, putting green, chipping ground, greenside bunker and fairway bunker. The course's on-site professionals can even help you sharpen up your game.
Perdido Bay Golf Club also has junior golf opportunities, so bring the kids and get them into the game. With the help of this course's professionals, you may all be playing as a family before you know it.
Whether you are looking for lessons or a top-rated professional experience, you don't have to travel far from your Perdido Key beach house rental to find the golf adventure you're looking for. Head out for the day or just a few hours for the tee time you desire.
