The Golf Garden of Destin has long been a favorite recreational destination for area golfers and families. It is a nine-hole golf course with a driving range, putting green and miniature golf course located at 12958 Highway 98 West, which also known as Emerald Coast Parkway. Originally this 35.45-acre property was forest until much of it was cleared for Golf Garden after Emerald Coast Parkway was completed in 1987. This Family Golf Center continues to be active to this day and receives high ratings among golfers. However this awesome location is actually part of Miramar Beach in prestigious and highly sought after South Walton County.
Miramar Beach has the distinction of being equidistant from the harbor in Destin and the coastal villages along Scenic 30A. It also marks the location of the renowned Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, which offers a wide assortment of dining, shopping and amusement venues. Exclusively gated golf course communities like Emerald Bay, Regatta Bay and the Kelly Plantation are located along this same route. Giant retail shopping centers like Destin Commons and the nation’s largest Discount Designer Outlet known as Silver Sands are also close by. Grocery stores, pharmacies, wine outlets and popular restaurants call this area home.
This property is quite valuable for development since it is the largest contiguous parcel of land available in this part of Walton County. The expansive rectangular parcel measures 659 x 2,329 x 662 x 2,330 for a total of over 1,500,000 square feet and it borders the premier Emerald Bay Golf Club residential community on its western side. The 659 feet of frontage on Emerald Coast Parkway is highly visible and this route has a high traffic count year round and especially during the busy summer months. This location is also very close to the beautiful beaches along Scenic Gulf Drive, which is just minutes away. A road off the Emerald Coast Parkway connects to the beach, which is only about half a mile away. The property has been mostly cleared with lush green fairways created for its nine holes that are forested around the edges with a narrow thicket of pines running through the center. A long lovely lagoon is landscaped with an island of towering palm trees. Other landscaping includes sea grass, crepe myrtles and oleander bushes. There is an existing building that serves as a small clubhouse and welcome center along with a paved parking area with a current capacity for about ninety vehicles. This property is zoned through the county as a Coastal Center that can be subdivided. It may be developed to include commercial buildings, retail space, multi-unit housing and individual single-family homes.
