Baytowne at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
Baytowne Golf Club at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort is routed from the beach to the bay, providing stunning views along the way. The course rolls across the few elevation changes that the area has to offer. Although it opened in 1984, the golf course didn't reach its peak until it underwent extensive renovation in 2005, which were carried out by the original designer, Tom Jackson. The layout features rolling fairways lined with mature pines that are generous and times but can be tight when you least expect it. The large, undulating greens can also play faster than what you might be expecting. Water, which comes into play on 12 holes, is a prominent feature of Baytowne Golf Club as are the numerous bunkers strategically placed throughout.

Course in good condition, but greens need another week to heal from airification. Very friendly staff. Will play again.

Fun day, but hard to find the course
We had a great day. Pretty much had the course to ourselves. They had just top dressed the greens so they were sandy. Kept our golf balls on the green though.
Nice course for the price. Great pace of play
Greens had been areated but had been mentioned when I booked the tee time.
Would play again when visiting area in September.
Hi. Thank you for visiting us at Sandestin. We're sorry for any inconvenience but we appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon!
Great day of golf
The course was in great shape and probably a week since aerating the greens. Pace of play was great for a 7:21 am start and as a twosome, we finished in under three hours. The greens will return to their regular play in another couple of weeks. The staff was great!
Hi. We appreciate you leaving a review and rating us. We will inform the entire team, so they know their hard work is paying off. We look forward to having you back at Sandestin!
Baytown golf course
Course is fun to play
Always enjoy the experience
OK overall, can be better.
I have played other Sandestin courses, but not Baytowne in recent memory. We were twosome with early Saturday tee time. Bag drop has lots of assistance. Check-in is easy, with multiple registers to help out. Nice clubhouse, everyone friendly. Big range with plenty of balls to warm up. Two 18 hole courses out of this facility, so it’s very busy. Starter was very nice lady, friendly and helpful. This part of experience all very positive.
We knew the greens were recently punched and sanded, so we understood this coming in. However, it was a bit surprising the fairways did not appear to be recently mowed. They were very lush and green and hairy! While rain is always pervasive in Florida, it was not a circumstance where it appeared too wet to mow. Also, the course has a bad poa annua problem that they appear to be working on, particularly in rough areas. Finally, bunkers can use just a bit more sand.
The course layout is very friendly, not overly long from blues but can be a great challenge from Gold for big hitters. Pace was great (<4 hours) but it was not very crowded. We saw cart girl 3 or 4 times, which may be important during very hot weather.
Overall I like the Sandestin Links course a bit more and The Raven is probably better overall experience. I am not sure I would play this course again if the others are available. I would definitely watch reviews to see if regular course maintenance is current. Overall it was an “OK” experience but could have been much better simply if the fairways were mowed and bunkers were appropriately sanded.

A course to enjoy many times.
A challenging course with lots of bunkers and water to make you consider your shot wisely. Aesthetically great looking but not one you would want to walk.
This is very interesting with bunkers and water hazards in play.
The course is in excellent and well maintained condition.
Looking forward on playing it again.

We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. It is great to see you had an enjoyable time on the course and we hope you join us for another round soon.
Greens were in excellent shape with some tough pin locations
Had a great time playing the course for the first time. The overall course conditions were good and the greens were in excellent conditions. The only negative is the back nine is somewhat difficult to navigate due to some construction is somewhat spread out between holes. Overall it's a good course to play and a good value for the money if you are able to use Golf Now for a lower rate.

Best in the area this week
Staff very friendly and helpful, starter extra kind. Course conditions were the nicest in the Destin area, greens were tremendous. It was nice to play on grass instead of dirt like most other courses this week. Top notch course. A little awkward due to road construction going through hotel parking lot on back 9 but no big deal. Thanks for a great track. I value GolfNow reviews and started adding them recently. Highly recommend Baytowne
