A loyal reader of this blog offered me some timely tips about where to play golf while I'm vacationing near Destin, Florida. Bob is lucky enough to live nearby and knows the local golf scene.
This from Bob:
"I don't know if you'll be playing golf while you're here, but if you do, may I suggest that you give FWB (Fort Walton Beach) Municipal a try. It is by far one of the best-kept public courses that I've ever seen.
"How they do it with all the play they get is beyond me, but it would be a bargain at twice the price. Kelly Plantation is another super layout, although about three times as expensive as FWB."
