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.

Nice course, enjoyed the carts with GPS and course layout. Everyone very friendly.
Beverage cart was covering two courses, we got served on hole 17, that part was not pleasant when no coolers are allowed and it’s 92 outside. Poor girl stretched thin that day, should have loaded up a dude and sent another down range,

Great Place to play

Fairways and tee boxes in great shape. Fairways a little wet from all the rain we have had. That was expected. Greens have been punched and I knew that when I made the tee time. Love the course.

Professional and on time

Course was in excellent shape except the greens. Recently aerated and putting was rough. A lot of sand traps on this course so bring your "A" game.

Baytown golf course

They had just aerated the greens so they were pretty bumpy but in couple of weeks they will be in great shape. Also had hard rain in the AM so was cart path only. Otherwise I would give it a 5.

Pace of Play Terrible

I love Baytowne but there was some group ahead of me playing incredibly slow. Waited up to 10 minutes on every tee after #7. Waited on many shots as well.

For other time sensitive players, please not that pace of play for the course on 8/11 was 3 hours and 52 minutes. Based on when this guest teed off, his round was between 3:50hr and 4:10hr. TY - Sandestin Management
