Sprawled across 600 acres of woodland, Marcus Pointe Golf Club is an expansive sportscape that challenges ball wallopers with its narrow fairways and subtle elevation changes. The 18-hole, par 72 course is littered with obstacles including strategically planted stands of trees, bunkers, small water traps, and foul-mouthed bushes. Aboard the included cart, golfing tandems zip through the links, crossing over a running stream that winds through Pensacola's natural wooded beauty and allows for impromptu dives to recover wayward balls and plunder sunken convertibles.
We are a full service Restaurant and Bar at a Premier Public Golf Course. We are located off of Sorrento Road just before the bridge to Perdido Key. We have excellent fresh ground Angus Beef Burgers, plus Wraps, Quesadillas, Sandwiches and Salads.
The site of the 1969 USGA Women's U.S. Open, Scenic Hills Country Club remains Florida's only course to host a USGA U.S. Open. But that's not the only thing that separates the 6,730-yard track from many of its Sunshine State counterparts. Unlike many courses that run through flat wetlands, Scenic Hills ripples over significant elevation changes—a characteristic that emerges at the first hole, a challenging, 443-yard par-four that plays downhill. The hills feed into a river and pond that, together, come into play on six holes, some of which force golfers to fly the ball directly over the hazard or bribe a frog with a backpack to swim it safely to the other side.
Alongside the course, separate greens for chipping and putting help golfers hone their scoring touch, and a driving range fosters full-swing practice. After a day at the links, golfers can enjoy a salad, sandwich, or other American-style dining at Caponi's Grille, named for 1969 U.S. Women's Open winner Donna Caponi.
