This is about the golf, not the resort.
Baytowne Golf Club: Was the worst of the three we played, but still highly playable. The course had a couple of holes that needed some repairs, but the price was the most reasonable at the twilight rates of the three. Decent greens, spotty fairway, spotty tees.
The Links Golf Club: Great views of the bay playing this course. If the winds are up and temps are down you will freeze. However, we played in 70-degree temps and it was a delight. Above average shape but the tariff is a bit dicey at the twilight rate. If you have to rent clubs, bring your wallet.
Burnt Pine Golf Club: Way overpriced for this track. Beautiful shape all around, no question, but it is not a $169 course at twilight or any other time. It was the premier course of the three, however.
We did not play the Raven this trip.
The pandemic was a boast to golf courses everywhere as it was one of the few venues that you could attend during that time period. Because of that the courses all raised their prices by almost 50% and have not changed them to this day.

We were so excited about having a wedding weekend bonfire ..and then so disappointed ! Here is what we learned: The Sandestin team promised one location but gave it to another group. There may be multiple groups so be sure to be there when they set up so you get your promised spot.

There was wind in the 10-13 mph range and although bonfires were "permitted" as in not cancelled we learned the bonfire was more like a SMALL campfire so that was a bust. We could not see a thing-coudn't find the s'mores or the attendant for awhiile I would suggest you cancel if winds like this are predicted.

Lovely concept-but winter early Spring months may not be realistic time!

5 day golf trip and we played all 4 courses. They were all just exactly what we planned on and each had their special attributes! Of course Burnt Pine was everything we wanted and more! It had rained late the day before and we were cart path only and several of our group elected to play longer tees than they needed to so they had a long day! I would suggest checking about cart path rules before Burnt Pine or Raven because cart path only makes those courses really play long. We elected to play Raven twice and it was great. On our Spring trip we may opt for Links twice as it would be a great 1st and last day venue. The day we played the links the wind was not blowing so we enjoyed not having to deal with that! Baytown was resort golf and a fine challenge for our group, nice views and in good shape after aeration a couple of weeks before. The staff was so accommodating as we had to switch days because of rain and they went above and beyond to help us!
Our family is going back for Thanksgiving holiday and plan on playing all four again. Can’t wait!

I played the Links course at Sandestin 2 weeks ago. Overall, I really like the course. Challenging but fair. There's a lot of water but generally it functions more like out of bounds rather than forced carries or major danger for most holes. There is a lot more on the back 9 than the front. Greens were slow but in great shape. Fairways in great shape. Tee boxes varied, some of them do need some work, but they are playable. I would definitely play again. Very low handicap players that are long hitter may not like this course. Tee shots have much more premium on accuracy rather than distance.

Took my 12 year old son here last minute for a round of golf. Between his other sports and my other kid’s activities we don’t find much time to play golf. But I have to say today’s round with him was the most enjoyable round of golf in my life. Baytowne was awesome from the pro shop staff, to the course layout and condition. I really liked that they have an additional set of tees that are closer than even red tees and are perfect for a junior player learning the game. It allowed him to be competitive and have fun, but not allow him to get frustrated by having to play from harder tees. From start to finish the course was in great condition and the pace of play was perfect. While I would love to try the other courses here, I would have no hesitation to play Baytowne again. Thank you Baytowne for giving my son and I a round of golf we will never forget!

We golfed the Baytown course it was a disappointment. The fairways were nice and course layout good but the greens were horrible. The greens had bare spots and looked liked they had been stressed for some time. They should have said something at the club house but I think they know folks are tourist so they take the fee and say so long. The course should have been half price because of the greens. They could use a course in customer service. We won’t be going back there, to many good alternatives in the Destin area.

My son in law and I played the Links Golf course at Sandestin on Father's Day . The fairways were in good shape but the tee boxes were just fair and the greens were awful. At first I thought it was a joke as they were uncut and bumpy and did not roll true. They were the slowest greens I have ever played and every green was bad and unkept.
The shape of the greens tainted our round and certainly not worth $100.00 to play.

Loved staying at a VRBO in Sandestin! Had a golf cart included with our rental and it was so fun and convenient to golf cart everywhere on the resort, including Baytowne Wharf, Baytowne Marina, Grand Boulevard, and the beach. There’s a very cool (and safe) tunnel that runs under Hwy 98 for golf carts to access the beach. Our teens loved it. Best place to stay in the Destin area. Right between Destin proper and 30A. Easily accessible by the 331. Ridge so you can avoid the midway toll bridge traffic into/out of Destin!

Very disappointed in learning the fee for “club rental”. $60 is CRAZY! Green fees were equal to Texas rates. But the club rental fee made us choose NOT to play. Had we known, we would have loaded our clubs for the trip. I guess they don’t need the revenue.

Sandestin Tennis & Pickleball Club is a wonderful place to make new friends. Everyone is so nice and Friendly especially Hillary in the tennis center. She always remembers our name and greets us with a friendly smile! I do wish that Todd the tennis director would spend some money on replacing shrubs around the courts. The landscaping is atrocious! We are also in dire need of dedicated pickleball courts.
