Beginning April 21, 2023, the Gator Lakes Golf Club located on Hurlburt Field is set to open its doors to the general public.
- This Air Force Services Facility offers an 18-hole golf course with views of the Hurlburt Field flightline, a covered driving range, a pro shop, and the Oasis Café that serves breakfast and lunch items.
Gator Lakes is also one of the first golf courses in the Emerald Coast to offer Toptracer – a revolutionary technology used by the PGA to track ball flight path and improve one’s game with metric tracking located at the covered driving range.
- And now, you don’t have to be a member of the military to enjoy these facilities.
To access the Gator Lakes Golf Course and its amenities, interested individuals must register on the website and complete an affidavit at the top of the page. After filling and printing the form, they need to take it to the Hurlburt Visitor Control Center, located at the Main Entrance to Hurlburt Field, where they will undergo a basic background check and receive an installation access card that’s valid for six months.
Once you have your access ID, you can use the East Gate to enter the base and present your card at the entry control point to gain access to the golf club.
