Sandestin Resort has four golf courses on the Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin.

The Raven was a PGA Champions Tour Stop for several years, was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, and is routed through the wetlands, marshes, and pine trees on mostly level land. It's a great test and challenging in every way with plenty of water, trees and sand, and good sized, undulating greens. It's a definite shotmaker's course where course management and strategic play is rewarded more than the long ball. It plays from 5,060 to 6,931 yards, 73.8/138, course/slope ratings from the tips.

The Burnt Pine course was designed by Rees Jones and is routed along Choctawhatchee Bay on the back side while the front is parkland style through the pine trees. From the tips it's 7,000 yards 74.7/144, course/slope ratings with three shorter tees.

Baytowne is the original course here by Tom Jackson and has the most variety with the routing along the beach to the Bay with some elevation change. It's a par 71 with multiple tees from 3,002 to 6,804 yards.

The Links is the most playable, and was designed Tom Jackson as well with the routing along the Baytowne Marina and the Choctawhatchee Bay with five holes directly on the Bay. It plays from 4,969 to 6,710-yards with four sets of tees overall.

Played the Links course at Sandestin. It is a pretty short course and I wasn't terribly impressed. The one thing that bothered me was that there were a number of holes where you just didn't where to hit the ball and even if you hit it straight you could get in trouble. Play Windswept Dunes if you can. It is a little bit of a drive but worth it!

I played the Links course. Very nice. Lots of view of bay. I enjoyed this course. Good staff. I wish I had time to play the other couses on the resort.
