The FSGA staged an unusual mid-week tourney at Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club yesterday. Most FSGA one day tourneys are scheduled for weekends. Hydration was the most important word of the day as the dog days of summer persist. Water stations were abundant and well used, especially the ice machine in the clubhouse.

Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club offers an 18 hole, par 72 course with a challenge from five sets of tees for those of every skill level or handicap. Holes 3 through 5, wind around a complex of dunes and within a few hundred yards of the Gulf of Mexico. Referred to as the “Purest Golf in the Florida Panhandle,” by Golf Magazine, the course offers a fair challenge and unique character only found among the Highway 30a corridor and the Santa Rosa Beach area. This course boasts some of the only elevation changes in the area and takes golfers from the clubhouse to the Gulf and back through the natural areas that enhance the uniqueness of the course.
