A little history… In February, 2002, at an awards party capping off the end of the first Emerald Coast Club Professional Match Play Invitational, an event created to foster competitive camaraderie among Emerald Coast PGA club professionals, the idea for a winter amateur event was a topic of discussion. That was the planting of the seed that grew into the Destin Winter Classic. The first Destin Winter Classic was held 6 – 8 December, 2002. The first three courses to become involved – Emerald Bay, Regatta Bay, and Kelly Plantation. Now there are 6 courses. The Raven, Santa Rosa Golf Club, and Indian Bayou joined in and raised the prestige of this wonderful event. Find out the entire history of how this magnificent event came to be by going to www.DestinWinterClassic.com/history.Â
With an A Group and a B Group with 3 Divisions: Regular Division (49 years and younger), Senior Division (50 – 64 years old), and a Super Senior Division (65 years old and older), there is a place for golfers of all ages and skill levels.
Each golf club will have a closest to the flag contest on 4 ofÂ the par 3â€™s at each course, each day. â€śClosest to the Flagâ€ť awards or certificates will be redeemed that day at the course where you won.
