The DeFuniak Springs Country Club is located in the City of DeFuniak Springs in Walton County. In the early 1920s, a group of progressive businessmen recognized that golf links would draw winter tourists to their community, and sought to organize a Golf and Country Club for the benefit of tourists as well as locals. By 1924, a 9-hole golf course was under construction and opened with sand greens. The golf course remained a 9-hole layout until the late 1960s when land was cleared for an additional 9 holes. The 18-hole course was completed in the 1970s.
The DeFuniak Springs Country Club includes an 18-hole, par-72 golf course featuring five sets of tees playing from 4,100 to 6,600 yards. Carved from gently rolling hills and pine forests, the course includes five spring-fed lakes, 23 sand-traps and natural hazards, including towering trees, sandy scrub brush, hardpan and a variety 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. DeFuniak Springs Country Club, located in a turn-of-the-century, picture-postcard town, is an affordable, hidden gem of a course with beautiful views from every vantage point.
