Headed to the either Destin or Panama city with a few rowdy gentlemen this june, but I can't let myself go a week without playing golf, so if you've played a little around the area what courses would you recommend?

Callaway epic 15* black tie 70x
Callaway alpha 816 18* Oban devotion 7x

Have you considered the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area instead?  Pretty close and really nice golf in that area.

Hombre used to host Q-School, not sure how it is right now.  Used to be a nice track.

The Raven hosts a D1 College Conference Championship
Windswept is a good one

Camp Creek and Shark's Tooth - if you can get on.

Pass on Hombre, it's not the course it used to be.
It's 40 + miles between Destin and Panama City so you may want to narrow down which area you are staying to get better suggestions.

I've played Raven and Kelly Plantation and they are good.  I've never played Regatta Bay but hear its nice. For the price Indian Bayou is great.  Emerald Bay isn't bad if you can find a discounted rate.  Hope that helps some.

Regatta is great. My dad is a member there. And i agree, Indian Bayou always is in phenomenal shape and the rate is very modest. There are 27 holes at Indian Bayou as well.

Raven is a little more of an exciting track than Kelly Plantation however Kelly is a little better kept and just generally nicer. If you play Raven, you can also play Baytowne Golf Club there as well.

As stated Camp Creek / Sharks Tooth are the nicest within an hour drive of Destin but its always hit or miss whether you can get on or not and the rates can be as high as $250 a round.

If you are staying around 30A there is also Santa Rosa which is pretty fun as well.
