This course demands command of ball direction with water coming into play on twelve holes. But it is a beautiful track, with the bay lining the fairways. Very enjoyable.

We played in gale force winds which made most of the water come into play. Older design that is fair and without the wind would have played easier. A good warmup round for an extended trip.

Played an ending 2017 round with my father while visiting Destin, Fl. The links course views are incredible. Pace of play on the crowded day was great. Foursome played in under 4 hours. Course conditions for December were awesome. A little soft in spots, but that’s to be expected. Green, lush, couldn’t ask for better. Greens rolled true. Not extremely summer quick but definitely not slow. Highly recommend. GPS devices were spectacular on carts. I prefer this course over the other 2 Sandestin courses personally. Take extra balls as there is water everywhere. Must play.

Course looks very nice, over seeded so it was green, but the greens were very slow, and played behind 2 groups of slow threesomes. Starter did try to speed them up, not much luck.

From the time I arrived until my bag was placed back in my vehicle I was treated like a member of the club. I enjoyed playing this course it is not an over bearing course to play. Even though water comes into play on several holes, you still have room to play. Do not let the water keep you away from this course. It is very player friendly.

Had never played the Links Course at Sandestin Resort...what a beautiful course along the Bay!

And, the price through golfnow was incredible compared to what we could/should have paid. The course was in great condition; although the greens were a tad inconsistent, and, there are some challenging holes, especially not knowing the course. But a great time with my son over Thanksgiving weekend.
