The Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort is known for its’ beautiful beaches and amazing resort amenities for family and business travel. But when it comes to its next claim to fame – they are second to none on the Gulf Coast for the ultimate gentleman past time and holiday of golfing!

Get in the Swing of Things

The very best in Florida golf across four championship courses. That’s seventy two holes from the beach to the bay, each with their own unique challenges, rewards, and characteristics thanks to Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Rees Jones, and Tom Jackson. These iconic course designers have left their mark—and considerable design talents—at Sandestin. The result? An unrivaled experience for golfers who are as passionate about the sport as we are. Their awards speak for themselves, but a day out on one of our courses says even more

The Courses

Game-changing challenges, spectacular views of the Choctawhatchee Bay, marshes, wetlands, pine forests, some of the only elevation changes in the area, and the “Crown Jewel of Florida Golf.” The four golf courses of Sandestin cover all the bases. Or should we say, the greens.
Links: The Links Golf Club was Sandestin’s first course. A winding layout against the backdrop of the Baytowne Marina and the Choctawhatchee Bay designed by renowned architect Tom Jackson, The Links is the ultimate in risk-reward golf. A shot-maker’s course, accuracy and proper club selection are key if you want to outfox the prevailing Gulf Coast winds. With five holes that run along the bay, this is a one-of-a-kind links style golf outing on the Emerald Coast with spectacular views. And a heart-pounding challenge. Named Top 5 in Northwest Florida by Florida Golf News and awarded 4.5 stars by Florida Golf News, the Links Golf Club plays from 4,897 to 6,710-yards. Offering four sets of tees, Sandestin’s original course is a must-play for golfers of all skill levels.
Baytowne: The best in Florida golf. The only course on Florida’s Emerald Coast that extends from the beach to the bay, from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the Choctawhatchee Bay, Baytowne Golf Club is revered as one of the finest course creations by renowned designer Tom Jackson. Baytowne Golf Club features some of the only elevation changes of any golf course in the area and is as forgiving from the forward tees as it is challenging from the championship tees. A fifth set of tees makes this course a great option for beginners just learning the game, for a brisk afternoon round of golf after a meeting, or before dinner at the nearby Village of Baytowne Wharf. Baytowne Golf Club has been named one of the “Best Courses You Can Play” by Golfweek and plays 3,002 to 6,804 yards, offers multiple teeing areas, and is excellent for all skill levels.
Burnt Pine: When GOLF Magazine calls you the "Crown Jewel of Florida Golf", you tee up and take notice. Course architect Rees Jones proves in this 7,000-yard layout why he is one of the most respected architects in the world. And because it neighbors Sandestin's Raven Golf Club, it is the only place where Rees and Robert Trent Jones Jr. courses meet. Breathtaking views along the Choctawhatchee Bay highlight the back nine. Meander through pine forests and wetlands of the Emerald Coast on the front nine. Rolling fairways and strategically placed bunkers invite golfers to out-duel the course by using a different approach to every hole. Burnt Pine plays from 4,268 to 7,001 yards and offers seven sets of tees.
Raven: A natural wonder that presents drama and strategy on every tee. Robert Trent Jones Jr. crafted this unique and visually stunning 6,900-yard par 71 into what he calls “a true modern traditional.” Masterfully carved through the marshes and pine trees of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, golfers can elevate their game with a myriad of exciting shot options. Experience dramatic changes in color and texture throughout the course, such as large, undulating greens that make club selection an essential part of each round. Raven was home to the Boeing Championship—a stop on the PGA Champions Tour—in 2006 and 2007 and is now an official stop on the PGA’s Korn Ferry Tour. Raven Golf Club has been named one of the “Best Golf Courses You Can Play In Florida” by GOLF Magazine and plays from 5,060 to 6,931 yards and offers four sets of tees.
