Type Resort

Length 6931 yards
Slope 137
Rating 73.8

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort offers four 18-hole, championship courses designed by three renowned architects. Raven Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., was carefully carved through marshes, native wetlands, and towering pine forests. Jones created a layout that is hailed for being both modern and traditional. It is also notable for how it seamlessly flows into the surrounding nature. The golf course offers plenty of variety both in shot options and visual scenery. The diverse holes are accented by dramatic changes in color and texture throughout the landscape. Water comes into play frequently and there are a number of strategically placed sand traps. Golfers are presented with a myriad of different ways to play each hole, which means thoughtful strategy is a necessity. The golf course's large, undulating greens also make proper club selection essential.

Great track.

A really nice layout. Greens were still recovering from aeration, but got a discount and was told in advance. Very fair.

Raven course at Sandestin

Fairways were fantastic. Greens were beautiful although a tad slow despite the firmness. Still a great course. Played the Silver tees approx 6300 yds. Which provides challenges….carry the water/bunkers, layup or aim safe left or right. Staff was excellent!!

Dan, Atherton

The course was a good layout and challenging. The greens and bunkers were in good shape. The only drawback was the fairways, they could have been a little more lush. All in all I would come back.
