De Funiak Springs Country Club is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located in Defuniak Springs, Florida.
The golf course at De Funiak Springs Country Club first opened for play in 1936. The course was designed by Milton and Dorothy Fullwiler.
The golf course at De Funiak Springs Country Club is the oldest in Walton County and considered to be the most difficult and challenging in the panhandle region of Florida. Carved from gently rolling hills and pine forests, it includes five spring-fed lakes, 23 sand-traps and natural hazards, including towering trees, sandy scrub brush, hardpan and a myriad of flowering shrubs. Tree lined, tight fairways lead to small Bermuda grass greens that are not only elevated but pitched and undulating enough to make the very best of putters a bit nervous. Holes #2 and #3 are back-to-back par 3's, which call for tee shots over water. The course is challenging enough for professionals yet a delight even for beginners.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6647 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4914 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 10, a par-5 that plays to 545 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 11, a par-3 that plays to 157 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 7, a 415 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 11, a 157 yard par-3.

Great course. Small elevated greens. Lots of hills, water, trees, woods, a real golfing challenge. Bargain priced compared to the resort courses in the area. Well worth the trip from anywhere near the panhandle.
