After routing players through the pine forests and wetlands of the Emerald Coast, Rees Jones wows golfers on the back nine with views of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Much like the differing scenery on each nine, players will be required to hit a different type of approach shot into each green. Unlike the other three courses at Sandestin, which are open to the non-resort guests, Burnt Pine is only open to members and resort guests.

There’s plenty of variety at The Links course at Sandestin—sharp doglegs, split fairways and crossing water hazards abound on this risk/reward Tom Jackson design.

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort: Raven
Miramar Beach, FL
The Raven Golf Club at Sandestin is a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design that hosted a PGA Tour Champions event in the mid-2000s. Both the fairways and the greens have a fair amount of undulation, creating some uneven lies on approaches and testing lag putts. The course is highlighted by the par-3 sixth, which plays to a generous island green. There are bunkers on each side of the green, saving errant shots from finding the surrounding water.

Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club
Destin, FL
Though some holes at Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club are lined with houses, the course traverses through the coastal landscape, with the marshlands and pines giving it a secluded feel. This semi-private facility is open to the public and offers a variety of designs, including some stout par 3s. In 2019, the course competed a $2.25 million course enhancement project that included green and bunker renovations.

Kelly Plantation Golf Club

Kelly Plantation Golf Club
Destin, FL
Situated on the Choctawhatchee Bay in Destin, Kelly Plantation is built on the site of a former turpentine plantation. Designers Fred Couples and Gene Bates delivered on their goal to make it a playable course for higher handicaps, as there are hardly any forced carries from the forward tees. It’s a stout challenge from the tips, though, which play 7,100 yards and to a rating of just under 75. The waterfront holes offer some tremendous views of the bay.
