My favorite golf course in Destin. Always play a couple times while here. Afternoon rates are as are most in the area, after 2pm. I'm a repeat client so I'm in their system. Great greens and nicely challenging for all levels.

We play Kelly Plantation every family trip to Destin. The course was in excellent shape. Beautiful layout with nice pace of play. Outstanding views of the Bay on several holes.

Great condition, very fast greens. No senior rates and junior rate is 12 and under, and at $145 fees during the week, very pricey in my opinion. Will opt for a little more junior/senior friendly course next visit.

I played the last week of June (2016) here with my son and his friend who are both 18. All of us are decent golfers. Overall, the experience was good but there were some cons; the green fee ($145 + tax) is way too pricey - especially for a weekday - but that's what you get when playing a private... More

We have played most every course in the area and yesterdays golf here was by far the best experience overall. The course was in excellent condition with great fairways and fast, true greens. We did not see any course areas that were not well maintained. The staff were also very friendly and courteous and unlike some other courses, made us... More

We stayed at Sandestin but wanted to play a course "off resort." Kelly Plantation did not disappoint. Felt a couple notches "above" the resort courses at Sandestin. I understand that the greens were all rebuilt in 2015, and they are very firm and hard to stick. Your ball will just keep on rolling, but this made for an exciting round.... More

Played with my wife here and enjoyed our day. The course was in excellent condition and had enough tees for any type of player. Greens are hard and extremely fast but consistent. After pur round, we had amazing drinks in the bar. Cherry infused Manhattens were my favorite while my wife liked the amaretto sours. We will return.

It is a scenic and enjoyable course, but not as nice as other courses in the area. The round took about 5 hours (for a twosome)...ouch. This course is overpriced for comparable great courses in the area. I expected a bit more, when Freddie's name was attached to it.
