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.

Beautiful course

There were a few holes that were very wet and most of the holes have water hazards. Course is challenging and has beautiful views of the bay along the way.

Worth the price. Pace was a little slow...took just over 4.5 hours with nothing more than a potty stop at the turn.

Very good course, nice experience

we played the course yesterday and were very pleased.. Most of the staff was helpful though the snack bar left something to be desired. Good quality experience for the money, would recommend to others from out of town

Single golfer in search of unique opportunities

The golf course was in good condition. My first time there so I have no resources to make judgement. Several picturesque holes. I would recommend this course for that reason. Definitely a shot makers course.

Nice course for the price

Today was cart path only and the range was closed, but they’ve had 5 inches of rain, so can’t fault them for that. The course was in good shape and plays well. Lot of sand and water, but nothing the average player can’t handle. Will play it again.

Wonderful harbor views

Nice course, don’t miss a chance to play it. Straight forward and not to difficult if you stay away from the water. Greens are not the quickest so at times it was difficult to get the ball to the hole. Overall a fun course to play.
