Type Semi-Private/Resort
Burnt Pine Golf Club is the most revered of Sandestin Resort's four golf course offerings. Rees Jones designed the course and it is a perfect example of why he is such a respected course architect. The front nine wanders through the Emerald Coast's lush pine forests and wetlands while the back nine runs alongside the Choctawhatchee Bay, offering unique and stunning views on each. Rolling fairways and strategically placed bunkers characterize the challenging layout. Water is also a prominent feature, coming into play on 14 holes. The greens are medium in size but they are fast and undulating. Doing well on this golf course requires thoughtful strategy with each hole calling for a different approach. Burnt Pine consistently ranks as one of the best golf courses in Florida.

Another great Sandestin course

This was May third time at the Sandestin Resort and I’ve still not had a bad experience. Played here again but first time at the Burnt Pines course and holy cow what a course. For the winter the course was in fantastic shape. The holes with water where very scenic as well as mostly all the par 3’s. With a spacious clubhouse there is plenty of room to host all kinds of events and the staff was very nice. With the amazing staff this four star course had to be turned into a five. The facilities and the range where in great shape. The resort itsel& is very nice with some great people.

Nice Course

Good layout. Nice setting. Greens a little soft and slow would be my only critique, but its off season. Otherwise in perfect shape. I'd like to play this in better weather, I'm sure it dials up nicely.

Sandestin's Private Gem

This is Sandestin's private course, but if you stay at the resort, you may be able to play it. Very well maintained and picturesque. The 14th hole may be the prettiest on the Panhandle, it's a par 3 over a marsh abutting the bay...just gorgeous. Find a way on, you'll enjoy it.
