Baytowne Golf Club
DescriptionRecognized as the only course on Florida’s Emerald Coast to extend from the beach to the bay, Baytowne Golf Club is revered as one of the finest creations by renowned designer Tom Jackson. Hailed by Golf Digest as one of the “Best Places to Play," Baytowne Golf Club is a must play for all golfers planning to visit the picturesque Northwest Florida coast.
Not only does the routing for Baytowne Golf Club span from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico to Choctawhatchee Bay, it also features some of the only elevation changes for any golf course in the area. With multiple teeing areas, Baytowne Golf Club is as forgiving from the forward tees as it is challenging from the championship tees. A fifth set of tees makes this course a great option for beginners just learning the game.
The Baytowne Golf Club is located on Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, a unique and charming destination on Florida’s beautiful Emerald Coast. In 2014 and 2015, U.S. News and World Report proclaimed Sandestin as the “#1 Resort in Destin, Florida.” There is something for everyone at Sandestin including a variety of vacation rental accommodations, sugar white sand beaches, turquoise waters, full service beach services, golf for every level of play, a top rated tennis club, water sports, marina, fitness center, spa, biking and walking trails. Plus, enjoy the Village at Baytowne Wharf, a family-friendly location with shopping, dining, endless events and live entertainment.
Regardless of where you stay in this welcoming, diverse neighborhood you’ll have no shortage of fun activities — from spas and nightlife to exhilarating water activities and championship golf courses. The Village of Baytowne Wharf bustles with dining and entertainment options for the whole family. Or, treat yourself to a gourmet meal at Seagar’s, a AAA Four Diamond-rated restaurant. With Sandestin’s incredible variety, you’ll start planning your next visit while you’re still here.
