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.

Pace of play was terrible especially on front nine. There were 3 groups on all holes on the front. I was only one in my foursome to play the back nine. You need a martial on the course to deal with such slow play.

Great Golf Course!

It was a wonderful experience at Baytown. Plush faireays, and excellent greens (flawless)
Overall good challenge, and fair to all skill levels. My wife is a beginner played forward Tees and it was a great outing for us both. This is a must play course in Sandestin!

Average course. Very busy. Pace of play slowed down considerably. Routing of back 9 makes me feel course was just thrown together.

The pace of play was painfully slow all day, and on #13 the group in front of us went into a condo and brought out two young boys (probably 5 or 6) and let them play in front of us too. On several holes we were dodging fishermen. We never saw a marshal, and when we called the clubhouse, they were unconcerned about any of these issues. The golf course is great, but the people and the issues made for an unimpressive experience. I live in PCB and have always brought my guests over to play, but today was the last time...I will not be back.
