Rating 72.2
The Links Course at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is the ultimate in risk-reward golf. The architect, Tom Jackson, routed five holes along the bay and then wound the course inland across rolling undulations. In order to prevail against the blustery Gulf Coast winds, accuracy and proper club selection are essential, making it a true shot-maker's golf course. In addition to being right along the shores of the Choctawhatchee Bay, the Baytowne Marina serves as a backdrop to the course, providing even more stunning views of the Emerald Coast. Of the four championship golf courses that Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort offers, the Links is one of the original two and also one of the most popular. The layout offers a unique links experience that all skill levels can enjoy, especially since it features four different sets of tees.

Very scenic and in great shape!

This course was in fantastic condition considering its winter and the amount of rain we got yesterday. Only 18 was marked as cart path only. The greens rolled true and fairways were firm and in great shape. The pro shop was friendly and helpful. I can't wait to play it again!

Nice day at The Links

Nice layout - a little tight in spots with water left and right. Course is in good shape. Greens were smooth and fair. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Starter was very nice, making small talk until we teed off. Would recommend the course

Nice layout...slow greens.

This is one of our favourite courses in Sandestin. The layout and the views are spectacular. I was surprised at how wet the course was today and how slow the greens were. And I mean...they were slow. We got held up at the turn for a bit. Anyhow it was a nice day...and it is February. I would highly recommend that you play the Links.

Windy weather

Simply beautiful

Great layout. Lots of water to deal with, take a few extra balls unless you're uncommonly strait. Will definitely make time to play this track again.
