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.

Baytowne Beauty

Hadn't played this course in a few years and had forgotten how nice it was. Fairways and greens are in great shape and although we found some holes challenging we enjoyed every minute.

A must play golf course

The staff were awesome from bag boy, pro shop staff, and most of all the starter knows what he was doing. I got paired up with a single golfer and teed off 15 minutes early, which was awesome.
The greens and the fairways were in good shape, and well maintained condition. Highly recommended to tourists, and locals on all skill level.

Nice track

This place is beautiful and the fairways were immaculate. Maybe it was just a seasonal thing, but the greens were so SLOW it was a distraction.

Above average

We’ll layer out course. We went during the slow season so there was no waiting. The greens were in great shape and the fairways were normal for a Florida course this time of year. The signage on the course was a little confusing at times.
