Destin is home to three award-winning golf courses, so you and your family and friends can enjoy a spectacular day of golfing at any skill level.

The championship-rated Kelly Plantation Golf Club is as beautiful as it is fun to play, boasting picturesque views of the coast, wide fairways, and a sensible difficulty slope. The course was designed to be relatively easy at the start to encourage beginner players, then ramp up the back tee for experienced players who want to challenge themselves.

A bit further east you will find Destin's other championship-rated golf course, the Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club, which was designed by famed course designer Robert C. Walker. The club has a 1,200 square foot practice area, where golfers can have their technique improved by cutting-edge video analysis technology.

If you want a more private golf experience, look to the Indian Bayou Golf Club. Adjacent from the Choctawatchee Bay and located in one of Destin's premiere gated communities, the course is pristinely maintained and is festooned with lush trees and sparkling water features.

We like the Emerald Bay Golf Club, too - and it's just a 10 minute drive away.  Recently redesigned in 2014, it boasts multiple water features and lovely views of the bay.

Loved the location... designer mall, great restaurants

Mainsail 131 was as gorgeous as the pictures in their review..the views, furnishings, and amenities were beyond our expectations.

Loved the location...having designer mall across the street and access to great restaurants. Kudos to owner for going over and beyond to return my hanging bag that we left at the condo! We really appreciate all the help by everyone to make our stay the best!

Took our 3 teens... best vacation ever!

We took our 3 teens on our family's first true vacation in years. The consensus was that it was the best vacation ever! The views of the beach and water were spectacular. The area was great! There was ample room that we weren’t on top of each other. We loved how close we were to the beach. We watched our kids play soccer on the beach while we sat on the balcony enjoying a nice breeze and glass of wine listening to the waves.

I seriously didn’t want to leave. It was wonderful to roll over upon waking up and see the beach and waves from the bed looking through the floor to ceiling slider in the master bedroom. The included chairs and umbrella were a dream after getting fried the first day we went to the harbor walk to parasail and snorkel. Kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms were big and had closets and plenty or drawers. The place was clean and decorated lovely.

They had shuffle board and tennis available. The pool looked nice although we spent all our time on the beach. We were right by the grocery and Dollar General for snacks and beach stuff. We can’t wait to return! I barely got home and started looking at the calendar for next year.

True ocean gulf views... convenienly located

This is a beautiful condo. You will not regret staying here. The owners were very friendly and easy to deal with, and the property itself is just perfection. We stayed here with our 2 boys aged 8 and 5 years and they both loved it too. The views are spectacular - if you want true ocean gulf views, this is the condo for you. The beach is in pristine condition, too.

Mainsail condos are conveniently located near shopping and restaurants and outside of the very busy center of Destin proper, and this is the best one we have ever rented. If you are looking for a beautifully appointed condo with amazing views and easy access to the beach, this is the place for you. We have visited the Destin area several times and this is by far the best place we have found to stay.

I wish we could come back every year! We definitely hope to stay in this lovely condo again in the future. It made a wonderful family vacation even more special! Thank you.
