Designed by Bob Cupp, Emerald Bay is a 18 hole championship course believed
by many to be one of northwest Florida's very best.
In 1992, Golf Digest believed it and voted Emerald Bay one of the top new

The Raven Golf Club --
The Raven Golf Club at Sandestin is a natural
wonder that presents drama and strategy on every tee. World-renowned
architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. crafted this unique and visually stunning
6900-yard, par 71 into what he calls “a true modern traditional.” With water
on 11 of 18 holes, Raven is a must play during your stay. The Raven was
voted “Best New Course In Florida” by Florida Golf News in 2000, and
Golf Magazine says, “The Raven gives the region its first true
marquee resort course.”
Baytowne Golf Club -- After carving
the masterpiece called The Links Course, Tom Jackson returned to Sandestin
to develop the course we call Baytowne Golf Club.
It gives guests the best of both worlds, with landing areas that invite
guests to unleash the driver, and greens that reward a strategically placed
approach shot. Tom Jackson created a heavily bunkered, pine tree-lined,
3300-yard front nine that runs along the Choctawhatchee Bay. The back nine
gives you a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico while taking advantage of the
land’s elevation changes to create some spectacular views. Tom Jackson calls
every hole on Baytowne a favorite “because each one has a personality all

Course is the ultimate in risk reward golf that provides guests with the

consistently ranked as one of the most challenging and fun courses in
Florida and has been named one of the “Top Five Courses in Northwest
Florida” and one of the “Top 100 Courses in Florida” by Florida Golf News.
In fact, the The Links’ 9th hole recalls the spirit of another fine “links
course”, the 18th at Pebble Beach, as it runs along Choctawhatchee Bay and
plays to a 536 yard, par 5. When playing The Links Course, we offer this
simple advice: hit’em straight and you will never lose your way.
Windswept Dunes -- To create a
one-of-a-kind golf course, designers must work to preserve as much of the
natural vegetation and topography as possible. Windswept Dunes
designer and builder Doug O'Rourke has succeeded on all counts.
Featuring miles of spectacular white sand dunes (some as high as 20 feet!),
large rolling fairways, artful bunkering and immaculate conditioning, this
track frames itself in rare, unspoiled beauty.
While the 750
acre setting is breathtaking, what makes Windswept Dunes truly remarkable is
that there are no crowds, no hustle and bustle at all. Here, off the
beaten path, it is easy to be serene; it is natural to be happy.
