Links at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
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.

Really enjoyed playing the Links at Sandestin. The staff is very friendly and the course is as beautiful as it is challenging.
Beautiful Water Views
Staff was very friendly.and informative. Nice layout beautiful water views. Fairways were like carpet tees were great and greens rolled true
Golfnow got deal was awesome.
This course offers everything a vacationer wants in a golf course: great layout, good fairways, and good rolling greens. The holes can require shaped shots but definitely fair for conservative and aggressive play. I would definitely recommend you play this course if anything for the value.
My daughter and I loved this course! The holes on the bay were beautiful. The pro shop is awesome and the staff very friendly. I highly recommend playing here.
Challenging and fun
You better bring your driving A-game. The course is challenging but fun. There's a lot of water and sand flanking many of the fairways. The greens held and putted well, but were still healing some from being aerified. We would definitely play here again.
Great course design and amazing views on the water. Overall course conditions were just okay, bunkers mostly had minimal sand and almost clay like,. Tee boxes and greens were in pretty good shape. The views of the ocean are why this course is so expensive. I’m glad I got the hot deal because the regular price is to much for this course. I would definitely play here again but wouldn’t pay regular price.
Good course. Putting green and range conveniently located. Complementary range balls for warm up is a very good feature as is the on cart gps.
Fun girls day!
We live locally, but had the most inviting staff and friendliness. The views are stunning and the wind off the water is unbeatable.
Fun course. The greens are healing well. Beautiful holes that will make you think a little.
Favorite course on the gulf
Golfing today was magnificent along with the course condition. This is my favorite course on the beach, I live close by and have played most of the courses here. Play was fairly quick with only minor backups. Course condition was excellent even as we have been in a hot spell with no rain for last two weeks, after playing this course you cannot walk away without being totally satisfied with the course.
Nice course. Fun to.play.
Except for the greens being punched a couple if weeks earlier and on the slow side, the course was a good value and fun to play.
Great views from course.
Very friendly staff and course layout. Fun to play from the correct tees. Fairways in good condition. Greens have not recovered from airification. Putts were hit and hope.
Sandestin Links Course
The greens are aerated but still putt-able. This was posted on GolfNow, on website, pro shop, and the starter. Enjoyable day on vacation playing with another person of similar skill. Friendly competition, not too serious. The course was in good shape. Some of the tee boxes needs grading. The fairways and roughs were in great shape, of course the greens were recently aerated. If you hit a high ball flight, the balls will stick to the greens. I use a Titleist Pro V1 and worked great as far as spin I needed. My favorite holes were the ones by the water, esp #14. There are 2 other courses in Sandestin that are available to play, Baytowne and Raven. The other is Burnt Pine which are for members or guests at the resort. Definitely will make my way back here.
Did not tell us that the greens had been aerated
Played the course yesterday. The website or the staff did not tell us that the greens were recently aerated. The ball bounced all the way to the hole. Also the driving range only holds 5 people.
Very picturesque course. Holes next to the bay are fun. Lots of water hazards. Staff is excellent and are very accommodating. Pace of play was 4 hours. Course was in excellent condition.
Excellent course in great condition
We played the day after heavy rains and the course drained very well. SUPER WINDY conditions when we played, which ramped up the degree of difficulty for sure. Lots of water hazards, so if you tend to "spray" the ball, bring plenty of balls.
But the course maintenance helped a lot. The greens were fantastic and the fairways were in great shape. The rough wasn't too deep, and the bunkers were clean and smooth.
We thoroughly enjoyed our round and will play there again.
Greens are some of the best in all of Destin. I was really impressed. Will definitely come back soon!
Played here during our stay on the property.
Driving range was not long, irons only.
Was able to go to another course on property to hit driver without any issue.
Staff was extremely friendly.
Lots of water on back nine so be prepared.
Lots of fun.
Course in good shape but several tee boxes need to be redone.Greens are slow but in good shape
