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.

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.

Resort Golf

Easiest of the three courses at Sandestin but fun to play and some very pretty holes.
Greens are a little slow but roll true. Overall course conditions are always great.

Not worth the money

Played on 3/24 and granted it had rained a lot the previous night and drizzled/rained the entire 9 we played (we stopped after 9). That said, the employee who got us our rental clubs was extremely rude,, the course provided no towels and didn't bother notifying us before arriving that it was cart path only. There was significant standing water on the course which candidly should have resulted in the course being closed, but instead made for a very un-enjoyable 9 holes. They had no problem confirming my reservation and payment but apparently providing notice about the course conditions and cart path only were irrelevant to customer satisfaction as getting the greens fees were clearly the priority. Would likely never play there again no refer anyone to play there given the cost and very poor customer experiences.
