With its old Naval live oaks, many water holes and coveted location along Bayou Grande, A.C. Read is one of the most beautiful courses in the Navy as well as the Florida panhandle. A.C. Read Golf Club offers 27 championship holes with an additional 18-hole executive course.
The Course is now open to the Public. Club and cart rentals, punch cards, driving range, practice greens, lessons, club repair and re-gripping are available. As an added amenity, a beverage cart with snacks and sandwiches makes the rounds on the course from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Golf Shop has complete equipment sales and special-order services as well as custom club fitting. For information on booking tee times, call 850-452-2454.
For those planning on golfing, you must enter through the Front Gate of the base and stop at the Visitor Center for a special-use day pass. You must bring a Real ID or a passport and will only be allowed access to the golf course. If you wish to visit the other attractions on base, you will need to exit out of the front gate and re-enter through the back gate.
